The importance of follow through: thoughts from an educator

Saying what you mean, and meaning what you say; that is something we should all be striving for in life. It is even more important when you are hiring people, writing recommendations, mentoring people, etc.

I have said it before and will say it again, everyone’s time is valuable, including the person applying for the job. What kind of relationships are you building with a non-caring attitude?

This is more than just communication (which many people do not truly understand), this is about effective communication.

Lessons from an MBA program.

Can you not just enjoy the music?

I picked up a part-time gig at a concert venue. I get to listen to world class musicians in every genre for free and I get paid for it. Something has been bugging me though, and it is the excess appearance of cell phones while the music is playing.

You have a Grammy award winning artist in front of you, and you are watching the concert through a cellphone?! Are you kidding me?!

I know your social media is so desperately in need of an update, and everyone must know you are listening to awesome music; but the trouble is you are not listening.

Try leaving your cell phones at home for a day and go out and have fun. You might actual enjoy some of that music.

The silent trap of job boards

When you are looking for a job, besides networking, everyone signs up on job boards. I just realized I have never met one person who said that they have gotten their job from a job board directly.

I would love to be proven wrong on this.
