What Not To Post - The Frightening Truths Your Friends Are Too Afraid To Tell You

Once upon a time there was a runaway hit television show on BBC named "What Not To Wear". For those of you who are not familiar with the premise of this show, it involves a very no-nonsense and somewhat confrontational approach to unsuspecting individuals whose family members and friends have nominated them to be subjects of the show. Trinny and Susannah take a hard look at the clothes that people wear and proceed to list all of the fashion sins they are committing. People expect their friends… Continue

Jumping - Success Through Repetition

At the gym I go to there's a particularly dedicated young man who is a

competitive basketball player. How do I know this? I know this because

I observed this guy strapping on some extremely ungainly shoes and

jumping up and down off of a static wooden box for 30 minute stretches.

These shoes are extraordinary - they give you a 6" lift on the ball of

your foot but no heel equivalent, so you can't stand back. The result

is that you are strengthening your calf muscles… Continue

Laying Off Is Hard To Do - The Importance of Preserving Dignity

Remember that old Neil Sedaka song, "Breaking up is hard to do?" Well here in New Zealand, "Laying Off Is Hard To Do". The laws surrounding hiring/firing/laying off workers are such that in order to comply, companies must go through a number of steps that are similar to union requirements in the United States. I won't get into boring specifics, but in my own particular situation - the entire New Zealand office of a particular company was being closed. In order to be in proper legal compliance,… Continue

A New Chapter

After twelve years working at the boutique firm The Creative Network, the downturn in the economy forced them to let me go. Studying abroad currently, I am quite vulnerable to any changes in my financial situation and this development hit me hard. I have found new employment at a global investment firm that suits my hours and my studies - the environment is great and the people are very nice. I can sincerely say that I enjoy the work and it's… Continue

Our Of Your Paradigm and Into The Fire (**not recruiting related)

Have you ever stopped in the middle of something and asked yourself, "What the heck am I doing? Why am I doing it this way? Whose crazy idea was this anyway?" I have. I am. Jumping outside of my usual day-to-day paradigm I'm challenging myself in a myriad of ways. I have achieved some successes and have suffered some failures. And my time outside of my comfort zone is only just beginning!

When you first step outside of your paradigm, you are constantly challenged by everything that's… Continue

Thanks for your comment on the Randy Pausch post - and a great post by you today (nature vs. nurture)- I find myself at times swimming against the current (as I am sure most recruiters do)! Great post as always!

Thanks Nancy, that is not the title-but it is definitely a Tony Robbins book- I want to say Life Mastery or something like that. It is amazing to think- you probably like most recruiters spend more time in our chair than our bed! So make the chair comfy!

Thanks Nancy, that is so true- especially for me - if I hear something that I like if I don't use it- it becomes lost. We our monthly training it just resolidifies those concepts and they end of sticking with thought patterns, etc. Anyways- you have one of my favorite blogs to read each week- great work!

Nancy - that's so strange that there was a different picture...honestly, I don't know how that works! : ) I'd like to say I had something to do with it, but I'd be lying!!!! : )
