Most humans are selfish beings. We learn how to consume value created by others before we learn how to actually create value on our own. It’s in our nature to think of ourselves before we think of others. We tend to look for opportunities where we can extract value from others to serves ourselves. And unfortunately, THAT behavior has gone mainstream within our societies. When you are at a networking event or any other event for that matter, people come up to you and ask what you do for a living.
Do you love what you do? If not, do you know when’s the time to quit your job? The truth is, most people are looking for a good day job but in reality, most “day jobs” are not good. We want good jobs because they enable our lifestyles. They allow us to take care of the basic needs and have a bit of luxury here and there. You get some type of formal education, make a resume and hit the market in search of a good job.
How often do you meet new people? People are everything. They make it all happen. They inspire us, they bring their gifts by sharing their knowledge, and together, we create cool things. We live in a world where to bring your ideas to life you need to focus on your strength and delegate the rest to others. There are a lot of people in this world and there’s gotta be someone out there who can help you overcome your challenges. For every problem you have, there’s a solution.
@dhina_karan Well, in most cases, your passion sits in the intersection of those 3 circles. It’s something that you love doing, it comes easy to you and you want to learn more about. Any activity that gives you all that can become your passion. It’s not gonna fall from the sky, it takes time.
@dhina_karan That’s just self-awareness. Asking people around you can help. For example, what do people come to you for? What advice and help do they seek? What do you do in your leisure time? What topic have you Googled and YouTube in the last year? These questions should help you.
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".
