the iPad as I can see it certainly serves you very well. Hmmm... maybe Apple should focus their next marketing campaign for the iPad on the "Senior Citizen", just like phone manufacturers did when they made those phones with extra big buttons - have you ever seen one of those??
Anyway... before I get shot down in flames by you Sandra (I like banter, and I don't mind anyone throwing it back at me!) ... I'll get back on the topic of Social Media...
Thanks for your comments Morgan - glad to see you appreciate where I'm coming from. Have you ever looked at what the celebs are spouting out these days on Twitter as well? My gosh, so many of them go on about pointless random crap; and no way would they be telling people in person if they were having a real conversation. It's like they feel they need to give their followers a running commentary of every minute of their lives. Why is that? Do they want to make them jealous, do they think people will love them more?
Anyway... Facebook has had it's day, and a lot of people I know now can't be bothered to keep up with it. Twitter can be left to the attention grabbing celebs. Youtube is great, but getting far too commercial, and I hate all the adverts. Myspace is still cool, but seems like it's gone underground and used more by the music industry these days.
Oh - and what's going to happen to dating in the future? Call me what you like, but you can't beat the sheer buzz from going up to a man or woman you fancy, and simply just starting up a conversation with them. You have no idea what to expect, whether they will like you or not - but once you can get the confidence to approach them, the sparks really can start to fly! With all this online dating, where you can pick your perfect partner online - it's sort of taking the fun out of going on dates where you have no idea what to expect. Not to knock internet dating sites - as many of you may have found a partner on there... but if we were all taught instead how to build more confidence in order to approach men or women in real life - it would be a WHOLE lot better, and far more fun! God, I hope that we don't look back one day, wondering what it was like to approach a stranger and start up a conversation - instead of hiding behind the "comfort" of our computer screens!!!
Just my opinion - but social media could be redesigning our lives entirely... although only if you let it. We don't have to do anything we don't want to - I just hope people stop doing things because they feel they have to be seen to be doing them.....
unterproductive to getting where you want to go.
Courage should be first..what good is learning if what we learn is never applied? or only applied halfheartedly? apply it correctly or incorrectly, just keep moving and correct your course as you go..you'll be surprised at what comes back..
Confidence comes afterward..after you know that you know what you know. only by acting with courage can we develop confidence over time.
Discipline is the brother of courage.. make yourself move forward, regardless of how you feel that moment.
Motivation? that's easy - if you don't move forward, you'll die where you remain, eventually.
organization? that's easy too - just pick someone to call, and call them. and then pick another.. heck, pick five people in a row to call, and don't stop until you call them all. the outcome is irrelevant.. at this point, you are re - learning how to do something, and again, I think you'll shock yourself as to what comes back to you.
not trying to sound flip, but we as humans can really over complicate things..it's all mindset..technique is secondary.
remember Tom's golden rule: anything worth doing is worth doing badly until you get good at it.…
abilities. Not only technically but the confidence that they can make the change, adopt to another company's culture. They have more confidence in their
resiliency. Not a lot of hand holding will be necessary.

How much can an employee learn in one organization? Employees & employers tend to get into a comfort zone with a system of work. It's until a new CEO comes to the firm (and we can see how regularly that happens) that a new system is implemented, hence learning grows.
The old cliche's of working for an organization for life or being their for 3 years minimum needs to be shred very finely, as maximized learning can only be achieved by altering industries and changing companies (unless one wants to remain complacent with the limited scope of some exposure)
I would recommend that motivated individuals should change, learn, accomplish, hand over and more on.

l) has made a huge impact in my life. Dr. Robert Cialdini is a great place to start, and anything on NLP (nuero linguistic programming). I would also suggest that they are MANY charlatan's in our industry, that sound all put together, but when you spend 5-10min. talking or observing there alexa ranking (web site traffic rank) you see very quickly, the message does not match reality. MANY are so called "thought leaders" in our industry!!!
Be careful who you listen too....
Have FUN with it... Life is way too short! Best, Brian-
last three months. How can we keep it going? Executive recruiters are reporting improvement, but what about in-house recruiters? Is their confidence rising? Having a belief in recession relief is simply not enough. Rescinded requisitions, altered job descriptions, and hiring freezes do not bode well nor make the in-house recruiter more confident.
"According to April’s survey of 142 executive recruiters, 41 percent are confident or very confident the executive employment market will improve in the next six months – up from 38 percent last month and 28 percent in February." ~OnRec.com
In-House Recruiters know what a recession in recession looks like. Hiring Managers are happier and responding to resume submissions, teams are filling out and retention is a possibility. Happiness and positivity are infectious. We know this. Remember when you were a kid and your mom would be in a bad mood. "Ain't no one happy if Momma ain't happy." That is because Momma's happiness and good mood were just as infectious as her bad moods and malcontent.
The same holds true for you as a Recruiter or HR Professional. Doom and gloom doesn't help the "crisis." Plowing through it does, but simply plowing through isn't enough, plow through with a smile.
SMILE the BLUES AWAY.
"It's easy enough to be pleasant when everything goes like a song, but the man who is worthwhile, is the man who can smile when everything goes dead wrong." ~Anonymous
