Do not feel bad when people don’t like you

The other day I was asked a very simple questions – “Why do you not feel bad when people don’t like you?“(or something like that). I had an immediate answer – do not feel bad!, but how I got to this answer is what I want to share in a few quick words.

How to develop a habit in 21 days

We have all been there! I want to… ‘clean the attic’,’clean the garden’, ‘the garage’, etc, etc We know we can do it simply because we have done it before, but we may not have the internal power to do it just now! Well, I am at the same situation! I prioritise ‘important’ aspects of my life and I simply do not have the time to do the rest! It’s time to change that bad habit! It’s time to ask ourselves : “How to develop a habit in 21 days?!”. Is it even possible?

Family business

So this post is about why we should not (in 99.99% of most cases) do business with close friends, family or fellow members!

Back to blogging

Hello folks!

Time to start blogging! Oh boy, don’t expect a lot! I will focus on daily boring stuff, thing which got me annoyed, some techie stuff and tutorials, and overall impressions of latest technologies!

Lets get started!

JS referral tool

How does it work?

Simply copy and paste the http:// link you want to use. The tool will create a javascript code which you can then copy to a .js file or inside the html template ( usually in the < head > section ).

Once executed the code will create an img tag with some inline style = > style=”width:1px;height:1px;display:none;”. The user will not see the image, but the browser will make a request to the desired domain.

Demo link can be here.
