Best Advice for activities online.

1) Consume information on the internet do not produce data you don’t want the world to see forever. The younger you are the less you should do online. This includes smart phones.

2) Less is more. Don’t give Facebook or another site more information then they absolutely need to use their services.

3) NEVER cross reference two or more sites. Don’t log into a website with your Facebook account and ID or anything similar.

4) Never use the same username or passwords for any other account.

5) Maintain yourself as anonymously as possible.

6) NEVER tag photos of yourself online whether on Facebook or other website

7) Delete Facebook posts after serving their purpose. Go to the Activity Log and delete, unlike, and Hide from Timeline all information. Chances are you forgot about 99% of this anyway so there is no value in keeping it active online. You can download a copy for storage on your computer if needed.

OK, enough with what you can’t do. What is safe? Keep all programs updated on your computer use a solid anti-virus that is updated daily. Read, watch other otherwise enjoy websites anonymously as possible.

Don’t do anything you will regret later and don’t give others ammunition to say I TOLD YEA SO!

Post #7…..from Absolutes to Relative thinking.

“Obey the absolutes…..

Playing to win, however, does not mean playing dirty. As you grow older and older, you will find that things change from absolute to relative. When you were very young, it was absolutely wrong to lie, cheat, or steal. As you get older, and particularly when you enter the workforce, you will be tempted by the “system” to think in relative terms. “I made more money.” “I have a nicer car.” “I went on a better vacation.” Worse, “I didn’t cheat as much on my taxes as my partner.” “I just have a few drinks. I don’t take cocaine.” “I don’t pad my expense reports as much as others.” This is completely wrong.
Preserve and obey the absolutes as much as you can. If you never lie, cheat, or steal, you will never have to remember who you lied to, how you cheated, and what you stole. There absolutely are absolute rights and wrongs.” ~Guy Kawaski

This one is simple Focus on People not PowerPoint.

Too many times we are bogged down with technology and don’t focus on what is important. It seems Murphy’s Law rules when giving important presentations. Always have back up paper copies if you must use PowerPoint.

I suggesting using a whiteboard, handouts and PowerPoint only for pictures or videos.

Post #4….10 Things the CIA Can Teach You About Your Career

10 things the CIA can teach you about your career 

By Maryann Karinch

All of the following points reflect the kind of engaged and intelligent behavior you will readily find at the CIA. They capture not only what makes things work at the agency, but also why people who join tend to make service at the CIA a career.

1. Commit to the work. What you do is not who you are, but who you are has chosen to be here now and pursue this work. Keep your commitment. Caring about your organization’s purpose helps your commitment to your work stay strong.

2. Build trust with colleagues, clients and competitors. You cultivate allies by establishing trust. Consistency in expression and behavior is an asset and contributes to your organizational effectiveness.

3. Mentor and seek mentoring. For your professional development, learn from experts who have demonstrated an interest in the growth and strength of the work force. Likewise, help others to build their skills, appreciation for the organization’s mission and team spirit to reinforce the company in image and reality.

4. Get it right. Whatever the task in the field or at your desk, see it as an essential piece of the company’s work. Do your best, ask for critiques, then send it in.

5. Encourage dissent in yourself and others. Healthy dissent is the lifeblood of a dynamic, forward-looking company. A bias for inaction out of fear of criticism undercuts the ability to solve a problem or explore opportunities.

6. Listen and reflect. You never know what you may hear, learn or discover anew unless your mind and ears are open. Meetings, trade shows, phone conversations, e-mails, Web searches — all kinds of events and people offer potentially valuable information. Systematically collecting and analyzing it is the core intelligence function and an invaluable tool for any company.

7. Commit to continuing education. Take advantage of learning opportunities provided by or supported by the company, but don’t stop there. Stay sharp through exposure to trade literature and events, blogging and honing so-called “soft skills” through organizations like Toastmasters. You want to be intellectually fresher than the competition.

8. Know the agenda. Whether it’s a staff meeting, lunch with a prospect or a trip, nothing happens without an agenda. If it’s not yours, then it’s someone else’s.

9. Have a bias for action. You can turn on a dime, but the bigger your organization, the harder it may be. Do what you can to develop organizational readiness for action. Always lean forward.

10. Identify and cultivate shared values. A team with shared values can work together despite differences in methods and agendas. Factors such as integrity and high performance standards engender cooperation and smooth the way to productivity.

Post #3…Thoughts on Work/Life Balance

Balance is Bunk there is no such thing it cannot be achieved. If you had balance you would work 12 hour days and be off for 12 hours, work 3.5 days a week etc… You get my point you should strive for Rhythm of life not balance.

Jack said it best….

“Do you think the people in Shanghai and Bangladore are discussing balance right now? No way. They want your job. They are well educated. They are working hard. They are doing everything they can, every day, to take your job away from you.” ~Jack Welch

Post #1…..World’s Best Advice

Bob Parsons® 16 Rules for Success in Business and Life in General

 

1.

Get and stay out of your comfort zone.

I believe that not much happens of any significance when we’re in our comfort zone. I hear people say, “But I’m concerned about security.” My response to that is simple: “Security is for cadavers.”

2.

Never give up.

Almost nothing works the first time it’s attempted. Just because what you’re doing does not seem to be working, doesn’t mean it won’t work. It just means that it might not work the way you’re doing it. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it, and you wouldn’t have an opportunity.

3.

When you’re ready to quit, you’re closer than you think.

There’s an old Chinese saying that I just love, and I believe it is so true. It goes like this: “The temptation to quit will be greatest just before you are about to succeed.”

4.

With regard to whatever worries you, not only accept the worst thing that could happen, but make it a point to quantify what the worst thing could be.

Very seldom will the worst consequence be anywhere near as bad as a cloud of “undefined consequences.” My father would tell me early on, when I was struggling and losing my shirt trying to get Parsons Technology going, “Well, Robert, if it doesn’t work, they can’t eat you.”

5.

Focus on what you want to have happen.

Remember that old saying, “As you think, so shall you be.”

6.

Take things a day at a time.

No matter how difficult your situation is, you can get through it if you don’t look too far into the future, and focus on the present moment. You can get through anything one day at a time.

7.

Always be moving forward.

Never stop investing. Never stop improving. Never stop doing something new. The moment you stop improving your organization, it starts to die. Make it your goal to be better each and every day, in some small way. Remember the Japanese concept of Kaizen. Small daily improvements eventually result in huge advantages.

8.

Be quick to decide.

Remember what General George S. Patton said: “A good plan violently executed today is far and away better than a perfect plan tomorrow.”

9.

Measure everything of significance.

I swear this is true. Anything that is measured and watched, improves.

10.

Anything that is not managed will deteriorate.

If you want to uncover problems you don’t know about, take a few moments and look closely at the areas you haven’t examined for a while. I guarantee you problems will be there.

11.

Pay attention to your competitors, but pay more attention to what you’re doing.

When you look at your competitors, remember that everything looks perfect at a distance. Even the planet Earth, if you get far enough into space, looks like a peaceful place.

12.

Never let anybody push you around.

In our society, with our laws and even playing field, you have just as much right to what you’re doing as anyone else, provided that what you’re doing is legal.

13.

Never expect life to be fair.

Life isn’t fair. You make your own breaks. You’ll be doing good if the only meaning fair has to you, is something that you pay when you get on a bus (i.e., fare).

14.

Solve your own problems.

You’ll find that by coming up with your own solutions, you’ll develop a competitive edge. Masura Ibuka, the co-founder of SONY, said it best: “You never succeed in technology, business, or anything by following the others.” There’s also an old saying that I remind myself of frequently. It goes like this: “A wise man keeps his own counsel.”

15.

Don’t take yourself too seriously.

Lighten up. Often, at least half of what we accomplish is due to luck. None of us are in control as much as we like to think we are.

16.

There’s always a reason to smile.

Find it. After all, you’re really lucky just to be alive. Life is short. More and more, I agree with my little brother. He always reminds me: “We’re not here for a long time, we’re here for a good time!”
