“How can they expect me to have supervisor experience before I’m hired to be a manager?” My young friend was ambitious to get a promotion to manager, and frustrated that he couldn’t get the opportunity. “It’s unfair,” he said. I responded with some empathy, and then a challenge. “Reframe the problem into two parts.
“It behooves every man to remember that the work of the critic is of altogether secondary importance, and that, in the end, progress is accomplished by the man who does things.” – Theodore Roosevelt“Criticism is something we can avoid easily by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.” – AristotleCritics critique by pointing out how they would have done things, but the creator is in charge of how their creation turns out. Thus, the relationship between the critic and the creator.
This video from my friend, Drew Dudley, reminds all of us that we don’t have to play the game that everyone else is playing. No, you don’t have to be like everyone else. No, you don’t have to measure things in the same way as everyone else. No, you don’t have to compare yourself to others all the time. No, you don’t need to be so hard on yourself. No, you don’t have to allow anger and envy and hate run your life. Life isn’t a competition. Rather, life is much about adding value in the lives of others.
Funny story about this book. Jasmine has talked often about her very distant uncle, George Washington, and his almost wooden teeth. I didn’t believe her, but toward the end of this book, Chernow talks about those very teeth. And if you’re wondering how t… http://ift.tt/2DK1lV3https://t.co/ZbrrYcyVlc
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
