So many books have been written on minimalism, yet it simply doesn’t work for so many people. We all know deep down inside that less possessions doesn’t necessarily lead to a happier life. Why? We all want more stuff! Depriving yourself makes you feel repressed, guilty for wanting things, and triggers your brain into a scarcity mindset. Minimalism is supposed to be a positive thing, but instead you feel an extreme lack in your life.
If you are a young person, then I’m dead certain that in the last couple days you’ve gotten frustrated with at least one old person. They drive too slow, they take forever to do things, they’re scared to death of every new idea that comes across their desk, they wear their pants too high – the list goes on and on. It’s possible that you think the only value they could possibly add to any company is to retire and let someone better take their place. Someone like you, for example. And I sympathize.
I still get antsy. Â I still get nervous. Â My mind still races. Too many things to do. The other night I woke up at 4:30AM worrying that my groups of travelers wouldnâ€™t make it to see Machu Picchu because of something I screwed up. The computations in my mind started running… Â 100% Money Back Guaranteeâ€Ś 16 travelers x 3 trips x $1395 early signup priceâ€Ś thatâ€™s a $66,960 mistake. I better wake up and start double checking shitâ€Śâ€Ś and worst of all, lately Iâ€™ve been stuck.
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".
