6. Be Grateful 

Becoming rich does not only require external factors to fall into place — many personality factors have to align for you to succeed at whatever venture you’ve started. Staying humble and grateful for the progress you’ve made at every step of the way is essential.

People do not want to give their money to someone who does not appear to appreciate it, or gets too carried away with any moderate amount of success. Keeping your life in perspective and having a considerate, thankful, and humble attitude is the way to go.

What Should My GPU Usage be when Gaming?

If you are looking for maximum output from your GPU, then the usage should be anywhere between 98% and 100%. If your usage is less, then it means something is blocking your GPU from being used fully.

So, the next time when you see the GPU usage hitting 100% while playing your favorite game don’t panic be happy that nothing is stopping you from getting the best gaming experience. Enjoy the game.

Why your GPU Usage is at 100%

Your GPU usage usually hits 100% while playing a game that requires the maximum power of your graphics card.

Your GPU usage is at 100% because your game demands it and it is supported by your CPU too. Most high graphics games with a high FPS would make your graphics card work hard resulting in high GPU unless you have some sort of a cap in place for the FPS.

To sum up, here are the reasons for high GPU usage

  1. Demands of the game: some games need a high FPS to render seamless video for the best gaming experience. If you are playing these games, then your GPU is likely to peak. PubG is one such popular game.
  2. No cap of the frame rate: disabling V-Sync and any other setting that puts a cap on your frame rate also results in high GPU in some high graphics games. No limit on your frame rate means, your system can render the maximum number of frames per second. Your GPU is being fully utilized and you will get the best gaming experience as well.
  3. High FPS settings in the game: Some games have an in-built setting to push for high FPS, it is like a pre-requisite for the perfect gaming exposure.
  4. Some external apps or processes spiking the GPU usage (rarely though): In some cases, the spike in the GPU usage may be due to external and unwanted load as well. This can be due to some apps running in the background as well.

3. Create a Plan and Follow It

The likelihood of suddenly stumbling upon unlimite

The likelihood of suddenly stumbling upon unlimited riches is extremely low. While it may seem that a lot of the success stories you hear are luck-based, this is actually not true. There is probably some chance and luck involved, but most rich people became rich through meticulous planning and discipline.

This includes things like budgets and timelines, as well as a plan of what to do at every step of the way to success. It is important not to get complacent and do your best to keep going, and having a plan helps without wasting unnecessary amounts of time. Creating a budget and following it is only one part of this process.

What are the Benefits of UGC for Marketers?

Why would a professional marketer ever turn over content creation to a regular consumer? As it turns out, there are several benefits to sourcing content from the public, but we’ll just briefly cover a few of the primary benefits of UGC for marketers. 

Social proof and engagement

Ever since digital media hit the advertising scene, engagement has been the go-to buzzword for the advertising industry, and for good reason. This is especially true due to the omnipresence of social media and the two-way communication it allows. When brands post a new campaign, the success can often be measured by the public’s reaction to it on social media. The more engagement, the better. 

So it comes as no surprise that brands would optimize toward engagement metrics, something that UGC has been proven to increase. According to Comscore, Brand engagement increases an average of 28% when users are exposed to a combination of user created product videos and professional content. 

Reading between the lines, it makes sense from a strategic perspective to have both professionally created and user generated content in your marketing mix. This actually brings us to the next benefit…

More content for advertising campaigns

When considering the multi-touch online buying journey that modern consumers undertake on their path to purchase, it’s not surprising to hear that marketers need more content now than ever. Many years ago, it was a common belief that consumers needed to hear a message seven times before purchase. In our digitally connected world of today, the actual number of touchpoints could be 5-10x that. 

Consider this (over-simplified) digital buyer’s journey: 

  1. See ad on social (lifestyle photo)
  2. Click through to website (product photo)
  3. Research product on YouTube (unboxing video)
  4. Read reviews (UGC)
  5. Buy product (more product photos)

That’s at least five different pieces of content and we’re being conservative—the actual buyer’s journey may take many more touches than that. 

In that sense, you need different types of content for different purposes, and UGC can provide a ‘slice-of-life’ perspective that a glossy, studio photoshoot simply can’t replicate. 

So how do we know that UGC performs better in some circumstances than content shot in a studio? We measure our digital ad campaigns. 

Ads created from UGC perform well 

We’re seeing more and more brands using UGC in their ad campaigns. According to Forbes, more than 86% of companies are using some type of UGC in their marketing strategy. And it’s not hard to see why! 

Shopify reported that ads featuring UGC receive 4x higher click-through rates and a 50% drop in cost-per-click compared to average ads.

If you combine these two statistics, you come to the obvious conclusion: Everyone is using UGC and it’s working. That said, many brands are still struggling to find enough UGC to feed their marketing campaigns.

FAQs

How Do I Reduce Broad Shoulders (Men)?

Men do not usually wish to have narrow shoulders, as broad shoulders are considered attractive in men (6). However, if you are not satisfied with your wide shoulders, you can make them go down in size by avoiding exercises that focus on your shoulder muscles and following a healthy diet with a slight caloric deficit.

Do Your Shoulders Get Smaller When You Lose Weight?

Yes, if your shoulders are wide due to the increased amount of fat or muscles. You can’t lose weight only in one particular part of your body. So, when you lose weight, you burn fat from all over your body, which eventually makes your shoulders, along with the other parts of your body, slimmer. However, if you have thick and wide bones, due to genetics, your shoulders are unlikely to get smaller even if you try to lose weight.

8. Jumping From A Building

Jumping from a tall building is a deadlier choice than jumping off a bridge assuming that you can find a tall enough building (you need to find at least a 130 feet tall bridge to kill yourself, yet jumping from a 50 feet tall building will produce a higher death rate). This isn’t a fool proof way to die either. If you are slowed down by a tree or an awning, or fall in a dumpster, bushes and land on your feet, there is a small chance that you will get hurt badly but survive the impact. One way to alleviate this problem is to find a skyscraper but those really aren’t available outside of big cities like New York or Chicago. That’s why we placed “jumping from a building” at the 9th spot in our 10 easiest painless ways of killing yourself quickest list.

The next item in our list is also asserted by several people to be painless, but we strongly disagree.

How fast does hair grow?

How much should your hair grow?
How much should your hair grow?

Before you start learning how to make hair grow faster, it’s helpful to first figure out how quickly it naturally grows so we can understand what to expect.

According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, scalp hair grows an average of 1cm per month. This means the average person can expect to grow between 4-5 inches of hair per year.

The speed at which your hair grows depends on both genetics and the shape of your follicles – Asian hair is on average the thickest and most coarse hair compared to Caucasian and African hair. 

1cm of hair growth a month sounds like a fair amount… so why does it never feel like it? Well, things like over-styling, a bad diet, and not taking good care of your hair can result in split ends and breakages which shorten the length of your hair.

This leads us to another important question…
