How do you net­work? Do you find your­self net­work­ing a lot or do you find your­self not net­work­ing as much as you believe you should net­work? The word net­work­ing has got to be one of the most overused words in the Eng­lish lan­guage today. No longer is it used to describe what sales peo­ple or mar­ket­ing execs do. In actu­al­ity, it is some­thing we all do every­day when we come in con­tact with peo­ple, regard­less of how that con­tact is made.

Accord­ing to Wik­tionary, net­work­ing (apart from the ‘com­puter speak’ ver­sion of the word) is “the act of meet­ing new peo­ple in a busi­ness or social context.”

Today, the abil­ity to net­work is a must for any­one who wants to accom­plish a par­tic­u­lar goal that in some way or shape affects oth­ers. Whether it be in busi­ness or on a more per­sonal aspect, know­ing how to and how not to net­work is more impor­tant than ever before. …Read the rest of this article…

Viewing Responsibilities: Obligation or Opportunity?

 Viewing Responsibilities: Obligation or Opportunity?

Do you enjoy get­ting involved with oth­ers for a cause? A busi­ness project? Or some other under­tak­ing? I’ve enjoyed get­ting involved in many orga­ni­za­tions and help­ing oth­ers suc­ceed in their endeav­ors for a while. Whether it is in busi­ness, in a com­mu­nity project or in a per­sonal mat­ter, being able to make a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence in some­one else’s life has been a reward­ing expe­ri­ence for me. Unfor­tu­nately, that wasn’t always the case. There have been many instances where I’ve felt that I’ve worn myself too thin with all of my respon­si­bil­i­ties. Have you ever expe­ri­enced that? Have you ever gone from a feel­ing of look­ing for­ward to being involved to not car­ing as much as you know you should? Not want­ing to answer the phone when­ever it rang? Ignor­ing emails? If you have, let me …Read the rest of this article…

Choosing Your Attitude; A Recent Personal Experience

 Choosing Your Attitude; A Recent Personal ExperienceI’m sure many of you have heard the say­ing “When life gives you lemons…make lemon­ade”. Well for those of you who know me, you know that I enjoy work­ing out and stay­ing in shape. Some of my per­sonal exer­cise pas­sions include run­ning, weight and resis­tance train­ing, and mar­tial arts. Recently, I injured myself while work­ing out in the gym. The injury wound up to be a par­tial tear of both my right iliop­soas (hip-flexor) and my lower rectus-abdominis (the six pack mus­cle). Don’t ask me how I did it. Let’s just say that even though I had been work­ing out already for over 40 min­utes, and was more than warmed up, one wrong angle on a par­tic­u­lar exer­cise can make all the dif­fer­ence. Need­less to say, the injury put me out of being able to work out at all until the injury is healed. The injury didn’t even allow me to drive a car!

That was a recent lemon that life gave me and it’s now about a month ago. I’m still not allowed to work out or drive a car until I’ve gone through a cer­tain amount of …Read the rest of this article…

You Can Discover Culture on Social Media and Social Networking Sites These Days!

With the big buzz in the recent years about social media and social net­work­ing, it’s kind of hard to avoid the terms, Twit­ter, Face­book, MySpace and the like. It seems when you turn on the news in the morn­ing or lis­ten to the radio on the way to and from work, you’ll always here some­one use the phrase, “and the big thing on Twit­ter this morn­ing seems to be…” or some­thing sim­i­lar to that. (You can almost insert many other social media and social net­work­ing sites in place on Twit­ter.) What’s the dif­fer­ence between Social Media and Social Net­work­ing? Check out …Read the rest of this article…
