1. A simple strategy is better than a complex strategy. 2. A starting business plan (and an annual plan for most businesses or business units) should be written on one to two pages, not 80 to 100 pages. 3. Great people who do their jobs are everything in a business. 4. While you can measure anything, cash flow remains a very top thing to measure. 5.

This article discusses two different subjects. First, the healthcare, economic and political outlook. Second, a core distinction between good and bad lawyering. 4 Thoughts on the Hospital, Health System, Political and Economic World1. In the hospital world, things seem to be strangely stabilizing. Merger and acquisition activity is somewhat down and systems mainly seem to be trying to figure out a “stay the course” strategy without huge transformational changes. Healthcare reform talks ebb and flow.
I've come to the following conclusion regarding good and bad lawyers. A bad lawyer often tells you what you want to hear. This happens regardless of whether the issue involves prospects in litigation, attacking the other side, deciding whether a deal is worth pursuing or determining whether or not your position on an issue is rational. Whatever the issue, he or she is happy to appease the client and just keep the process going. He or she is not driven by client results.
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".
