Your quick and easy guide to kick start 2018. Happy New Year, you beautiful badass. I hope you’re having a fabulous 2018 so far. In the lead up to this new year, I started to feel a little overwhelmed with the amount of goal-setting advice out there. To the point that I almost didn’t sit down to reflect on 2017 and start defining my focuses for 2018 — even though I enjoy doing this. To stop the overwhelm from taking over, I took a breath, picked up my notebook and just let it flow.
It’s been 4 months since I shared my diagnosis and how facing my mortality inspired me to leave my product management job in San Francisco and embark on a journey to create the life I want. After receiving so many kind messages, I wanted to share how that journey is going and where I’m committed to taking it next. Starting out, I had 3 things with me: the seedling of a personal mission — to help people be their best self — an open mind and the faith that something would work out.
Spotted! The @whentojump book in the UK and only ONE left in the store! Congratulations, @mclewis21 & the @whentojump team!
I’m reading When to Jump and can’t put it down. If you’re looking for some inspiration to make your own jump, treat yourself to a copy! https://t.co/vTass9Ac3u
@ChaseAdam17@daniel_clough@acton Neighbor Bakehouse (Dogpatch) for the best pastries (and sitting outside with a coffee), Mission Beach Cafe for breakfast (the bacon is incredible), Dandelion Chocolate for sweet treats, Bi-Rite ice cream to eat in Dolores Park. So many!
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".
