Dream Wish: Enhance Your Productivity Exponentially

Dream Wish: Enhance Your Productivity Exponentially

Allow me to take ten minutes of your time. This ten minutes can enhance your productivity beyond anything you have ever dreamt of.

Life Is Unbalanced

Imagine standing in a queue. You get behind the line and you wait for your turn. You think you will get what you deserve when your turn comes. What else can you do? You just wait for the queue to move.

And Zoooooom!!!

Someone whizzes past you like a freak flash-wave and gets ahead of the game! You could barely see him going! And while everyone else is still standing in line, wondering what just happened, that guy has reached straight for the bounty, grabbed it, and is off for the next.

Some people are like that. They never had to wait in line and never cared for it much. They simply showed up and started winning.

Are they just lucky? Maybe not.

The Dream Wish Concept

Going for an exam? Getting dressed up for an interview? Going out to meet your dream date? Preparing to leave for the seminar which will shape your future?

Here’s the miracle secret to enhance your productivity infinitely today!

Dream wish is one of those lesser-known secrets held under the sleeves of high achievers. It can shoot you straight up in the run for success. It is as simple as it sounds and just as amazing!

In my personal and professional life I have tried this out several times, and let me tell you, it works like a charm!

If you are in for something big today, try the Dream wish concept. Have complete faith in it and see how the magic unfolds.

????????????????????????????????????

    What You Need To Do

    You will need about 10 minutes of quiet time.

    Step 1 – Relax

    Find yourself a quiet room. Sit in a comfortable chair and relax your body. Take a few deep breaths and with each breath relax more and more.

    If you need some help with the relaxation, give yourself a countdown from ten to one, telling yourself “I am relaxing with each count.”

    Ten….relax….nine…relax…eight…relax… and so on until you reach one.

    Such a back-count will also take your mind off the immediate task at hand and help you let go of any tension you might have inside.

    Step 2 – The Dream

    Now, when you are in a completely relaxed, tranquil state, imagine watching yourself from a distance. Think about the task you are about to do and watch yourself doing it.

    See yourself being extremely peaceful while carrying out the task. And watch yourself achieve the best. You are very happy to have succeeded and you feel really good about it. Make this as vivid as possible. Feel the joy of the win!

    If you are up for an interview, watch yourself dynamic and bright in the interview room, shaking the hands of the interviewer with enthusiasm and a smile. Watch how he reciprocates. Watch his demeanour and see how pleased he is to see you. Make the visual as vivid as you possibly can.

    Feel the joy which you get when you walk out of that room, knowing that regardless of how many candidates there are that day, you got the job!

    If you are going to meet your dream girl today, imagine her to be extremely friendly and cozy, imagine laughing loudly with her and having a great evening! Imagine the look of warmth in her eyes and imagine how she is interested in you the first time she lays eyes on you.

    Imagine and feel the emotions which you would really feel – be it love, happiness, or a sense of achievement. Let that emotion make you happy.

    Step 3 – Emerge

    When you feel good and relaxed to have won the game already, start coming back slowly to the rest of the world.

    Count again, this time from one to five, telling yourself that with each count you are a little more awake.

    One…two…three…waking up…four…almost awake…five. Fully alert and feeling great!

    Step 4 – Just go for it!

    You are now all set to win!

    Be the same happy person who emerged from the trance a while back and lead yourself up to the event — to the interview room or the podium, whatever the case may be — feeling great!

    Advertising

    Feel like a winner! You may have a hundred people competing for that spot, but that does not matter. Only you have what is required.

    Watch what happens now. I think you are in for a miracle.

    Enhance Your Productivity And Experience Serendipity

    No, I will not tell you why this works. Sometimes, the magic works only if its secret does not unfold.

    Whenever you are chasing a big achievement, try the Dream wish concept. Have complete faith in it. Faith can enhance your productivity beyond what logic can dream of.

    Just believe in it — it will work!

    As the Master of an Ocean liner, mine is a high-performing job. We have to prove ourselves every day. The Dream wish concept has never failed me. It will take you ahead of your competition by leaps and bounds.

    Enhance your productivity

      Think about it: Do you still want to stand in the queue? Or whizz past?

      5 Learning Management Systems (LMS) for Effective Learning

      5 Learning Management Systems (LMS) for Effective Learning

      Businesses rely on talent to generate and sell value. Without skilled people to create its products, manage its operations and execute its strategies, a business would inevitably fizzle out of the game and leave better-staffed competitors to take the field.

      This is the reason why ambitious companies go great lengths to attract top talent,[1] shelling out millions of dollars in the process and bending traditional work policies just to bring highly skilled but demanding candidates into the fold.

      Clearly, the contours of business are changing. But so are the demographics of work.

      Millennials have become the dominant generation in the job market in terms of population, and some have already transitioned into leadership roles. Most millennials consider opportunity to learn and grow more important than overall compensation.[2]

      Companies also today expect employees to come equipped with razor sharp business acumen.[3] Unfortunately, there is an alarming discrepancy between the actual skills businesses need and those currently possessed by job candidates.

      To stay in the game, employers need to continually upgrade their training and skills development strategies to cover the entire employee lifecycle.

      What are Learning Management Systems (LMS)?

      Learning management systems are software-based solutions for authoring, presenting, consuming, storing, and tracking educational content and training materials. These systems aim to centralize all instructional content (e.g., lessons, training modules, instructional videos, presentation slides, worksheets, online quizzes, ebooks, takeaway notes, etc.) in one place.

      LMS enable instructors to design and deliver learning experiences to students, with the added capability of evaluating the effectiveness of the instructional materials and grading the learning progress of students.

      On the other side of the equation, learners use LMS to develop skills and acquire new knowledge virtually anytime and anywhere via the different channels and content formats made possible by digital technology.

      Over the years, a wide range of features and technologies have been integrated into learning management systems to help enhance the experience of training designers, instructors, and learners. These include cloud and mobile technology, artificial intelligence, responsive design, scheduling, gamification, data analytics, and interoperability with other applications.

      5 Best All-Purpose Learning Management Systems

      There are dozens of LMS vendors catering to the general market or to specific segments such as K-12 learning, higher education, and corporate training.

      Advertising

      With so many options available, selecting the right LMS solution for your needs can be complicated and costly, especially when you end up adopting a platform that doesn’t exactly match your goals or requirements.

      Short of conducting a comprehensive audit of your needs and finalizing a learning roadmap, the safest bet would be to adopt full-featured but affordable LMS solutions.

      Based on user reviews, here are the 5 best LMS to help people gain knowledge, build skills, and achieve mastery:

      1. Canvas Network

      Launched by Instructure as an open source software in 2011, Canvas is an end-to-end cloud-based service originally engineered for the education sector.

      Widely adopted for K-12 and Higher Ed learning, Canvas can be repurposed for anything that involves an instructor, a subject matter, and a student.

      Used around the world by people of all ages and organizations of all types, Canvas arguably has the largest learning and support community in its class. It works on desktop computers, tablets and mobile phones.

      To get a glimpse of the platform’s fresh interfaces, you can visit the Canvas Network, a learning community that provides educational and instructional materials created by colleges, universities, corporate businesses, independent course developers, and other knowledge-sharing entities around the world.

      Hosting hundreds of interesting topics from data science to horticulture, the learning network also serves as evidence to the scope, capabilities, and popularity of the Canvas LMS platform.

      Canvas is hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) infrastructure, which enhances the platform’s reliability, speed, scalability, and overall online performance.

      Additionally, platform adopters enjoy a low-risk environment since cloud-based solutions require no hard stops for version updates, upgrades, or system migrations.

      The Canvas website does not show a price matrix but says the service adopts a simple formula for computing fees: a one-time implementation fee and an annual subscription fee based on total number of users. It also promises free basic services for teachers who want to use the platform.

      In addition to Canvas, Instructure also offers Bridge (an LMS designed for corporate environments), Arc (a video platform for online learning), and Gauge (an assessment management system).

      2. Google Classroom

      This free service from Google aims to improve the teaching and learning process using cloud technology, web apps, workflow simplification, and seamless communication between students and instructors.

      Using Classroom, educators can easily create and schedule classes, distribute assignments, send feedback, and grade quizzes all in one place. By streamlining processes, Classroom helps teachers save time and organize classes more effectively. Both students and teachers can also work using any device anytime and anywhere.

      Classroom works perfectly with other Google tools, having been launched initially as part of Google’s G Suite for Education. This LMS solution taps Google Drive for content storage and distribution, as well as Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides for the creation and sharing of instructional materials. Meanwhile it integrates Google Calendar for scheduling and Gmail for communication.

      With G Suite, other communication channels such as chat messaging, video conferencing, and a dedicated website are enabled.

      Easy to set up and manage, Google Classroom is free to use. One of my very first courses was actually hosted on Google Classroom.

      Going beyond the classroom environment, Google offers G Suite Enterprise for Education for large institutions. This suite provides enhanced search and analytics capabilities as well as advanced tools for enterprise communications.

      3. Moodle (Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment)

      If budget and capability equally top your list of LMS adoption criteria, then Moodle might just fit the bill. Which is to say there’s none (i.e., bill).

      Moodle is a free and open-source learning solution for distance education, workplace training, flipped classrooms, and other pedagogical environments.

      It is also a full-featured LMS supported by a robust community and a thriving developer ecosystem. Not surprisingly, Moodle is used in more than 15 million courses by more than 130 million users in 230+ countries.

      Advertising

      Among other things, Moodle enables administrators and educators to create a dynamic and dedicated website to host organic, easily accessible, and highly customizable courses that can be experienced on desktops and mobile devices anytime and anywhere.

      Moodle provides a personalized and intuitive dashboard as well as a host of collaboration tools for content designers, teachers, and learners. A universal calendar, an efficient file management system, an automatic notification system, multimedia integration, and a progress tracking tool all come with the package.

      4. Absorb

      This platform recently bagged PC Magazine’s Editors’ Choice Award for Best LMS.

      Co-designed and built by former course authors, Absorb takes learning experience to the next level. This turnkey LMS solution is responsive, full-featured, and highly customizable for maximum impact.

      Course developers can orchestrate a wide range of experiences depending on audience or learning situation. In addition to surveys, polls, and e-commerce integration, Absorb supports formal online learning and certifications standards such as AICC, SCORM, and Tin Can.

      The user interface can also be modified to match the learner’s location, group, or department, allowing for a different look and feel for customers, channel partners, management trainees, and newly hired employees.

      Absorb supports all personal computing devices from desktops to mobile phones. There are also native or hybrid apps for iOS and Android.

      The only possible drawback to the platform’s powerful feature set is its pricing. The service reportedly implements a flat, one-time setup fee depending on your business and training requirements. According to the site, any plan comes with a dedicated success team for your account.

      Although small companies are welcome to try, midsize to enterprise-scale organizations are probably the best segment to readily adopt this LMS solution.

      5. Watershed Collaborative

      Created by a group of educators, this nonprofit rethinks the priorities of an LMS, asserting that too many systems miss the most essential elements of what makes learning stick. They promise a better user experience – emphasizing Learning before Management and System.

      Watershed aims to support an inquiry-based learning experience through an integrated mix of online and in-person learning strategies and interactions designed expressly for teams – including collaboration, reflection, and dialogue.

      While Watershed was founded initially to serve the K-12 education market, the company has since expanded its scope to cater to all types of teachers and learners with its video-rich, state-of-the-art platform.

      If you’re a mission-driven educator, content creator, institution, or business, this LMS may be the one for you.

      Watershed specializes in assisting you with the instructional design of courses and provides content production services to ensure top-quality video assets with lasting value. Their LMS makes it easy for course creators to continuously update and tailor content to support small and large groups, while ensuring the technology and instructional strategy supports communities of learners.

      Pricing varies based on products and services, but revenues support the nonprofit’s ability to make its platform and courses available at little or no cost for high-need educators and educational settings.

      Honorable Mentions

      There are dozens of LMS vendors in this growing market and the brands included in foregoing list are by no means the only viable options for companies or learning institutions looking to upgrade their learning infrastructure.

      Many other excellent services are worth checking out. These include:

      1. Docebo is an LMS designed for hyper-engaging students, employees, customers, and other learners. The system helps organizations identify and resolve competency gaps with strategic learning interventions.
      2. Cornerstone OnDemand is a talent, training, and performance management solution offered as an SaaS (Software-as-a-Service). This service enables learners to create personalized playlists of instructional content.
      3. Lessonly is an LMS solution that makes it easier to recall and reinforce whatever skills or knowledge you have learned through quizzes, coaching, and constant practice.
      4. Skillsoft is an online training and corporate learning platform developed by a two-decade old and billion-dollar company with the same name.
      5. D2L BrightSpace is a learning management system that has all the basics for delivering excellent, rich-media experiences for classroom or workplace training.

      Conclusion

      There are many ways to learn but some are more effective and meaningful than others. Whether you are a teacher looking to enhance classroom learning or an HR manager creating a long-term talent development plan for employees, the key to impactful learning is to understand and bridge the needs of learners, the goals of your institution, and the actual capabilities of the learning tools you are considering.

      Note that using multiple LMS platforms is possible although not recommended. On the other hand, adopting other learning solutions beyond LMS (such as podcasts, mentoring, and onsite in-person workshops) may significantly improve learning outcomes. Always go for products and plugins that seamlessly integrate into your core LMS tool.
