Would you like to learn a different way to structure your day? One of the most common questions I get asked is, how can I structure my day, to get everything done? A big question I’m sure you’ll agree. To answer it we need to look at what types of tasks we must complete daily and when is the right time to do them. Before you can structure your day, it’s important to recognise that all your tasks will fit into one of the following four categories.
Do you ever question your personal efficiency? Have you ever got to the end of the day feeling tired and worn out, whilst, at the same time wondering what you accomplished during that day? Meanwhile, all those around you seem happy and relaxed and still manage to accomplish the things they need to!! Everyone has a different level of efficiency. The truth is they don’t have super powers and it’s entirely possible for you to get more done and feel better at the end of the day than you do right now.
In our high-stress society, it’s hard to keep work and family time separate. Work worries follow us home so we’re never free of them. Even though work is such an integral part of life for everyone, it’s essential to leave your work problems at work so that when you’re at home you can be really at home and enjoy quality family time. If you don’t there may be some adverse effects on your children and partners. In a recent article in the Daily Telegraph.
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".
