(PHOTOS/Courtesy)Netball World CupUganda 52-43 ScotlandM&S Bank Arena, Liverpool Sunday, 14-07-2019The She Cranes ensured they reached the final preliminary round of the Netball world cup, defeating Scotland 52-43 on Sunday.Scotland ranked one place behind Uganda in 7th, finished third in Group D to also advanced to the next round, in third.On the day, Stella Oyala was magnificent and her shooting could not be contained by Scotland.The home based player converted 27 of her attempted 28 goals, shooting 96%.Despite the loss, Scotland coach Gail Parata was impressed by her side.“The last time we played it was a 20-goal difference,” Said Parata told BBC after the game.“Today’s it’s nine, so we’re building. You can see how young our players are – most will be there for the next World Cup.”Uganda and Scotland went into the match with identical records – a win over Samoa and a defeat by England – making this a straight shootout for second place in the group.The teams traded goals in the opening 10 minutes before Oyella and inspirational captain Peace Proscovia moved Uganda into a 16-11 lead at the end of the opening quarter.Emma Barrie, at 17 the youngest in the Scotland squad, came on for Bethan Goodwin and scored seven goals from nine attempts.But that was not enough to prevent Uganda from extending their advantage to eight goals by half-time – 29-21 the score – their eye for the net matched by their ability to intercept Scotland’s passes.The second half was more of Uganda trying to see out the victory as Scotland desperately tried to come back.Scotland took the third 12-11 while Uganda took the fourth 12-10.In the end, Uganda held on to win the contest and justify their favourite tag that they went into the game, holding.However, the result confirmed that Samoa would finish bottom of the table while Scotland and Uganda would go through to contest the second stage of the preliminaries starting on Monday.Uganda’s starting 7 against ScotlandSylvia Nanyonga, Stella Oyella, Mary Nuba, Peace Proscovia, Stella Nanfuka, Racheal Nanyonga, Lilian Ajio.Comments last_img read more

James Clear: The Powerful Story Behind One Of The Best Books On Habits – Episode #128

first_imgPodcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 59:06 — 47.4MB)Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | Email | Google Podcasts | RSSIt’s a bit presumptuous to claim a book is one of the best books on habits that exist. There are lots of great books on the subject out there, including Charles Duhigg’s seminal work, “The Power of Habit.” But Anthony is not shy about saying that his guest, James Clear has penned exactly that.James and Anthony share a common story: a debilitating brain injury that forced them to discover a new way of living. For James, his recovery took him to a new understanding of habits and the power of stacking simple, easy habits one on top of the other to create momentum and change. Bear that in mind, these are lessons James learned for himself rather than just information he consumed and regurgitated from the research of others.Maybe it’s not so presumptuous to say James’ work is one of the best books on habits. After all, he’s lived the story that has made it possible. Listen to hear his story, learn about the aggregation of habits, and how he recommends you apply what he’s learned to your own [email protected] describes the powerful story behind one of the best books on #habits, his own. It’s on this episode of #InTheArena with Anthony @Iannarino. #salesClick To TweetOne Of The Best Books On Habits Was Penned Because of a Tragic CircumstanceAs is the case with many of the significant things that are created in this world, James Clear’s book, “Atomic Habits” was birthed in the forge of suffering. A freak baseball accident put James in a desperate place, fighting to recover from brain damage.His journey out of that debilitating place led him to the realization that small, simple habits can be stacked one on top of the other to bring about incremental but powerful change.This is not a conversation with a theorist. James knows what he’s talking about – not only because he’s researched the topic, but because he’s lived it. Be sure you listen to hear his incredible story.Why Systems Trump Goals Every TimeAnthony is the first to say that goals are important. But with the help of James’ book (and other resources) he’s come to see that they are not the most important thing. As James explains, goals are important because we have to know where we are headed but to focus on the destination to the exclusion of the actions that get us there is folly.James encourages those who are trying to accomplish goals to focus instead on building systems into their lives that naturally lead to the desired outcome or goal. That puts the focus where it rightly belongs – on doing rather than hoping.This conversation clarifies so many things when it comes to building habits – and it flows directly out of James’ book on the subject. Be sure you listen.Listen to learn why #systems trump #goals every time. @JamesClear speaks about the power of #habit on this episode of #InTheArena with Anthony @Iannarino. #salesClick To TweetTransform Your Life By Casting Votes For Your Identity Every DayHabits are not formed by self-discipline or self-control alone. They have to be birthed from a deeper, more fundamental place. James Clear insists that if you don’t have a sense of identity tied to a habit, it will fall by the wayside sooner rather than later.For example, going to the gym for 5 minutes a day provides the basis for the reality that you are a person who goes to the gym. That’s the first baby step toward being the kind of person who makes use of the gym in productive ways. It’s an identity issue that you can take control of and master.In this conversation, James shares a handful of other examples to help you get your mind around why identity is foundational to establishing good habits.Get Rid of the Cues That Prompt Bad Habits and You Get Rid of the HabitsCase in point: If you want to cut back on a habit of stopping into Dairy Queen for a soft-serve cone on your way home from work, you don’t do it through a daily study of the DQ menu so you are clear about what you need to avoid. You do it by avoiding Dairy Queen altogether.That may mean you establish new driving patterns so you don’t pass by it on your way home from work. It could mean, avoiding looking in the direction of the store as you pass it.James Clear refers to the circumstances that set us up for indulging in a bad habit as “cues” – and in this conversation, he explains the simple but powerful ways we can be proactive about eliminating the cues for the sake of eventually removing the habits they fuel.Don’t miss this conversation. If you have habits to build into or remove from your life, James’ practical approach and clear guidance will be helpful.Get rid of the cues that prompt bad #habits and you get rid of the habits. @JamesClear speaks about the power of #habit on this episode of #InTheArena with Anthony @Iannarino. #salesClick To TweetOutline of this great episode How James Clear got started blogging and where it’s lead him How a traumatic brain injury pushed James to learn habits, the topic of his book The concept of aggregating marginal gains and how James has leveraged it Why you need to know what you want, and the power of systems over goals Who you want to be is the starting point for every step of growth The difference between James’ approach and Charles Duhigg’s approach How expectations fuel life more than reactions Why it’s so hard to start a new habit Removing habits by getting rid of cues that prompt the habit James’ most difficult habits to begin The story of breaking bad habits and how James did itResources & Links mentioned in this episodeJames Clear – http://JamesClear.comJames’ book: Atomic Habits – http://a.co/d/4NyN3GPSPONSOR: Mailtag: https://Mailtag.ioThe Lindy Effect : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lindy_effectThe aggregation of marginal gains : https://jamesclear.com/marginal-gainsSimon Sinek : https://startwithwhy.com/Florence Foster Jenkins : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florence_Foster_JenkinsEdward Thorndike : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_ThorndikeB.F.
