Arinze Onuaku reminded everyone why he was the Best Import two years ago as he led Meralco’s strong start in the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup strong, beating Columbian, 116-103, Wednesday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.ADVERTISEMENT But it wasn’t just Onuaku who had a big game for the Bolts.Chris Newsome added 18 points, seven rebounds and seven assists while Niño Canaleta and Nico Salva combined for 15 points off the bench.Jared Dillinger chipped in 11 points, including the dagger triple from the left corner that put Meralco ahead, 108-96, with 1:41 remaining.“I believe that our locals, the other guys also played well. KG (Canaleta), JD (Dillinger), and the other guys,” Black said. “Great effort, great start for us coming off the All-Filipino. Hopefully, we could sustain it the rest of the conference.”CJ Aiken played much better offensively with 21 points that went with 18 rebounds after scoring only nine in his PBA debut in Columbian’s win over Blackwater, but the Dyip obviously need more than just that if he wants to keep his job.ADVERTISEMENT View comments Scientists seek rare species survivors amid Australia flames Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award ‘Stop romanticizing Pinoy resilience’ Jerramy King, who erupted for a career-high 30 points three days ago, only had 12 points on 4-of-14 shooting from the field.

Leo Messi, €300m.“In a period of just a month that suddenly sounds possible too. That used to be an outrageous amount.“They just set that amount randomly. I mean who would pay €300m?

Manchester City dominated the first half at a rain-swept Loftus Road.Pablo Zabaleta almost gave them the lead when he headed David Silva’s cross against the bar.Julio Cesar, who has looked uncertain in the QPR goal, was also grateful to see Javi Garcia’s wind-assisted 35-yarder flash just wide.Rangers, with Fabio on the right of midfield and Loic Remy making his home debut, struggled to create chances before a quick counter-attack brought Joe Hart into action six minutes before the break.The England keeper raced from his line and produced a fine stop to deny Adel Taarabt after the Moroccan had skipped away from Gael Clichy.Cesar then atoned for some shaky moments by diving to his right to push away a shot from Gareth Barry.R’s boss Harry Redknapp named two goalkeepers – Rob Green and Brian Murphy – among his substitutes.QPR (4-1-4-1): Cesar; Onuoha, Nelsen, Hill, Traore; Derry; Fabio, Mbia, Granero, Taarabt; Remy.Subs: Green, Park, Ben Haim, Zamora, Murphy, Faurlin, Bothroyd.Click here for our QPR v Man City 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
Harry Redknapp believes Andros Townsend will still struggle to establish himself at Tottenham despite his recent England call-up.Townsend won praise for his performances after Redknapp took him to QPR on loan last season and has managed to impress since returning to north London.But former Spurs manager Redknapp is still not convinced the winger will be able to hold down a first-team place at White Hart Lane.“Will he get in Tottenham’s team, let alone the England team? That’s going to be the kid’s problem,” said the R’s boss.Townsend impressed for QPR.“When Aaron Lennon’s fit and all these other players come back it’s about whether he can get in the Tottenham team on a regular basis.”Townsend, 22. had a succession of failed loan spells prior to his arrival at Loftus Road, with the likes of Watford sending him back to Spurs early.But he did well under Redknapp, who has been hoping to sign him on a permanent basis but accepts the player’s England call-up means a Premier League club may now come in for him if Spurs are prepared to let Townsend go.“It’s about confidence. He came here last season and knew that I liked him and believed in him. I think it showed in his performances,” Redknapp added.“He went out and played and showed everyone what he could do. Now he’s gone back to Tottenham and been a hit in the Premier League for the first time.“He’s a very focused kid. He wants to be successful and wants to get there and I think he will.“But it ain’t going to be easy to get into Tottenham’s team with all them players there now.“That is a fantastic squad of players – for me the best squad in the Premier League now.”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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now Many years ago, I started the process of eliminating procrastination. It wasn’t easy, and it took me longer to beat than I imagined it would. Over time, the practices I put in place became habits, displacing the resistance I felt towards some tasks and projects. What follows will help you stop procrastinating on the work necessary to reach your goals.Worst Things First: First of all, not very many things are as bad as you make them out to be in your mind. You can get yourself all wound up and talk yourself into resisting work you need to do. I started to do the very worst thing I need to do first each day, believing that my psychic energy was better in the morning. If I had a tough call to make, I would make it before doing anything else. If I had some client work I wasn’t thrilled to have to do, I did it first—and without hesitation. The early win propelled me into my day, and everything I did after that was increasingly easier. Much of the work I resisted took me less than 45 minutes once I buckled down.Scheduling Work: If you haven’t ever lived on your calendar, scheduling your work in 90-minute blocks (or something like that), you have no idea how much work you can do in a day. You know that project you don’t want to start on, but you know putting it off isn’t going to make it go away? Schedule an appointment with yourself and put it on your calendar. No matter what happens, when it’s time to begin, get started. For some reason, this provides freedom from worrying about the project or task until it’s time to start.These first two disciplines are game-changers for all who employ them. But there are more.Ruthless Prioritization: We get productivity backward. We think of it as tasks instead of outcomes, and we keep to-do lists that are entirely transactional and lacking any emotion, utterly devoid of purpose and meaning. To beat back your desire to procrastinate, you have to start with purpose and meaning. When you look at the work you have to do, framing it in terms of the contribution it makes to the bigger vision you have for yourself, something beyond even goals, you can find your motivation (something Sinek would describe as your “why?” and what I would call your “identity.”).Order of Importance: This is a derivation on priorities. Two things might be equally important, both in line with your purpose and meaning. In cases where priorities are competing for your time, you have to find another way to measure what gets done and in what order. Some outcomes are more valuable than others, which means you should default to doing whatever is going to make the more significant contribution. What is going to have the greatest impact over the more extended time? Answering this question can move you from being a firefighter to a place where you are exercising personal leadership, building a better future.Give Yourself Over to the Work: Some work may feel resistible. However, no project can create resistance if you decide to make the project something incredible. One of the most important decisions you make is to choose to give yourself over to your work, investing your emotional energy. So, it’s a report. How do you make the report something people will talk about for weeks and months after you deliver it? You have to have a difficult conversation with a client. How can you help them more than anyone else, and more than they would have ever expected? If every project is a reflection of you, what do you want that reflection to be?How you do one thing is how you do everything.All of these strategies are habits you can build. You can will yourself to do the nastiest, foulest thing first, until you no longer even think about it. You can make and keep commitments to yourself, scheduling work on your calendar and treating it like you would anyone else who occupied that same space. If you haven’t every ruthlessly prioritized your work, there will be dozens of things that you will prune from your task list, freeing up bandwidth for what’s important. You know your best work always requires you to engage with it passionately.If you try these approaches, you will find that your resistance gives way as soon as you start to do whatever it is you were avoiding. Once you are in motion, you have shifted your focus, and procrastination dissolves.
