Personal Shadow Outsourcing
For years I've heard apocryphal stories of knowledge workers in Silicon Valley who had permission to work at home, but in fact outsourced their work to cheap Chinese or Indian labor. The digital worker would work only a few hours per day overseeing his help, and goof off the rest. The Asian workers under him were delighted with a real job that paid well for them -- but only a fraction of what the CA guy got. And the CA guy's boss was delighted with the great work he was getting. It was an ingenious racket! Win, win, win for 3 sides; everybody happy. But all this shadow outsourcing was only rumors as far as I could tell.

Now comes some hard evidence from a Verizon security team that at least one person was really pulling off this sweet scam. From this article: http://securityblog.verizonbusiness.com/2013/01/14/case-study-pro-active-log-review-might-be-a-good-idea/

"As it turns out, Bob had simply outsourced his own job to a Chinese consulting firm. Bob spent less that one fifth of his six-figure salary for a Chinese firm to do his job for him. Authentication was no problem, he physically FedExed his RSA token to China so that the third-party contractor could log-in under his credentials during the workday. It would appear that he was working an average 9 to 5 work day. Investigators checked his web browsing history, and that told the whole story.

A typical ‘work day’ for Bob looked like this:

9:00 a.m. – Arrive and surf Reddit for a couple of hours. Watch cat videos

11:30 a.m. – Take lunch

1:00 p.m. – Ebay time.

2:00 – ish p.m Facebook updates – LinkedIn

4:30 p.m. – End of day update e-mail to management.

5:00 p.m. – Go home

Evidence even suggested he had the same scam going across multiple companies in the area. All told, it looked like he earned several hundred thousand dollars a year, and only had to pay the Chinese consulting firm about fifty grand annually. The best part? Investigators had the opportunity to read through his performance reviews while working alongside HR. For the last several years in a row he received excellent remarks. His code was clean, well written, and submitted in a timely fashion. Quarter after quarter, his performance review noted him as the best developer in the building."

I recommend the kettlebell for a good, minimalist workout. You get some strength workout and a lot of aerobics. A million Ukrainian farm boys can't be wrong! 

The nice thing about it is it's small and portable. Throw one in your car trunk when you go on a trip and you have a mini gym with you. Another nice thing is they are reasonably cheap. You can get a good one for much less than the cost of a pair of running shoes. Lastly, they never wear out or break -- it's just a cannon ball with a handle on it. :-D 

Walking a few miles 5 days a week and kettlebells 3 or 4 times a week is all I do, and it's plenty -- and minimalist.

+Jodi Jae I hope the tips would help. It's actually the first time I changed in my attempts and I'm actually surprised that it worked.

What if there was a better way to turn bad habits into great ones?

There’s good news and bad news. First, the bad news: You cannot actually break bad habits.

Your brain doesn’t work that way, which is one of the reasons millions of people try to break bad habits over and over and over and fail miserably every time. It’s why New Year’s resolutions only last a few weeks, and something like ninety percent of them are the same ones you made the year before and similarly abandoned.

Now, the good news: You can overwrite a bad habit with a new behavior.
