What Will Make You Feel More Happy?

What Will Make You Feel More Happy?

I’ve been thinking about this question a lot lately. What does it take to be a happy person? Obviously the answer is going to be different for each person, but what worries me is that, as far as I can tell, most people don’t even ask – and those that do don’t have a very good answer.

Ask someone what would make them happy, and their answer is likely to be pretty vague. “A good career”,” they might say. Or, “Family.” “A strong… Continue

Life’s Enough: Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

Life’s Enough: Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

“Enjoy your own life without comparing it with that of another.” - Marquis de Condorcet

If you took the strengths of others, and compared them to your weaknesses, how do you think you’d size up? And do you think this would make you feel good?

The funny thing is, this is what most of us do at one time or another — and some of us do pretty often.

It’s a sure-fire recipe for a drop in self-confidence and… Continue

Public Speaking

Here are some annoying public speaking habits. They can be deal breakers, so avoid these annoying habits at all costs!

* Voice Trailing Off - Many speakers let their voices trail off at the end of every sentence. The audience can hear the first part of their sentence, but they have no idea what pearls of wisdom might be lost in the whispers at the end.

* Looking Down - Sometimes this speaker will deliver complete sentences inaudibly while looking down — obviously not… Continue

Get Out The Vote - Get Your Free Goodies - Get The Political Rhetoric Off Your Web Site!

If you haven't already voted today, get your tuchus out there and pull a lever. Here in Washington State, we vote by mail and my voting was done weeks ago. I am really looking forward to all of the political signs, commercials, sign-wavers, et al. to go away like magic tonight... Poof! No more multi-colored signs lighting up street corners like so many gawdy-colored flowers.

Additionally - if you vote, you are able to cash in on lots of free "goodies" from different companies.… Continue

The Types of sourcing

(this is a response to a post on Sourcers unleashed on the types of sourcing...)

The types of sourcing that I do is a mix of online (passive and active), phone and networking.

The online sourcing can be broken down further into targeting active candidates/those that respond (ie low hanging fruit) through various job boards and getting responses from general and niche job boards. Then of course there is using the Internet to identify passive candidates that may be… Continue

I don’t have a job yet. I am not rushing to take any job. I just relocated and I’m looking to stay for a long while where I land. I write this as it currently applies to me, I would be very happy for everyone else if it only applied to me, but I doubt that it does. Unfortunately, what I am finding right now is the interview process is so drawn out that it is almost impossible to keep up the momentum and I’m sure some candidates would feel lukewarm by the time they receive an offer, if they… Continue

An executive compensation model that makes sense

Both candidates for President have publicly acknowledged that executive pay is out of line. In today's NY Times comes a blog post that speaks to a unique compensation model that isn't too far off what the hedgies already receive.

Vote Americans, Vote

Whether you believe Obama is prepared or not, history is being made. Whether you believe only McCain can protect our country, history is being made. Whether you believe our country needs to change, history is being made. But if you believe that not voting is the best choice you can make because you don't like either candidate, history will pass you by.
