Tick Tock You Don’t Stop

I’m sure there are a few Business Resolutions that are already fading fast out there. Don’t worry, that’s natural. But if I could recommend just one thing to you this year, it’s this:

If you want to make serious change in your life,
start by being on time.
Expect the same of those you do business with.

Now, I’m not talking about running red lights to prove something to yourself. Start by just simply planning ahead and leaving with enough time to get where you need to be safely. If you are calling in, make sure that you figure out conference pass codes in advance. You don’t want to be the one “fumbling nervously” into a meeting. Instead, be the one waiting for the show to start.

It’s not easy

Especially when your own schedule is at the mercy of so many uncontrollable factors.
That’s the puzzle. Your challenge is to be on time in spite of those things. In doing so, you begin to subconsciously tame your schedule. It becomes easier.

Don’t believe me? I dare you to try it and see.
No wait…

I double dare you.

VECTOR ILLUSTRATION: Time is Money

You better believe it. Every second you waste laying in front of the TV or surfing around on the internet is a waste of your…wait a minute. Except for the time you spend on Vectorvault of course. That’s time well spent.

Here’s a great little illustration of an alarm clock with a dollar sign on it. It symbolizes the urgency to make your time count this year. Get productive and turn those dreams into reality. Take a closer look here.

Lots more time savers on the VECTORVAULT: STORE.

Time Magazine’s person of the year is….

Here’s a no-brainer: Time magazine named US President-elect Barack Obama the Person of the Year after he became the first African-American to win the White House. But the real contest was to make the shortlist.

The runners up were US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and Chinese director Zhang Yimou, the man behind the Beijing Olympics opening ceremony.

“It’s unlikely that you were surprised to see Obama’s face on the cover,” Time said. “He has come to dominate the public sphere so completely that it beggars belief to recall that half the people in America had never heard of him two years ago.”

“In one of the craziest elections in American history, he overcame a lack of experience, a funny name, two candidates who are political institutions and the racial divide to become the 44th president of the United States.”

The cover style was also no real surprise. Shepard fairey’s iconic poster will certainly have it’s own place in history as one of the most memorable. It seems as though vector art has played a role in changing the face of history forever.
