Why clutter your mind with trivia? Writing things down is a habit of highly successful people, and it can make you more productive. WASHINGTON, July 11, 2017 — Resources are the key to everything but one critical resource is often overlooked while also overused: our neuro-resources. Neurons are the basic working units of our brains, brains that never sleep. These specialized cells are designed to store, process and transmit information. They make thought possible.
Why clutter your mind with trivia? Writing things down is a habit of highly successful people, and it can make you more productive. WASHINGTON, July 11, 2017 — We focus on resources—labor, capital, oil, financial resources—when we make business and investment decisions. Scarce resources are the basis for finance and for economic analysis. But somehow in our thinking about resources, we often ignore one of the most fundamental resources of all: the human mind. Or, more generally, the brain.
Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Tony Robbins and many other mega-successful leaders broaden their expertise by reading books and articles well outside of their chosen fields. WASHINGTON, June 15, 2017 – There is no one prescription for success. The uniqueness of each human being adds complications to the path to success. However, examining and understanding the lives and career patterns of successful people, business executives and other role models can help us navigate success.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
