The Sharing Economy Isn't a Niche. It's the Future of Market Capitalism.
"Rather than cause the death of capitalism, these technological developments will redefine what it means to be an employer, an employee and a customer." .............. restaurants = "Take ChowNow, which offers restaurants a platform to manage online orders. Instead of reinventing the wheel and building out its own delivery platform, it leveraged the growing shared economy movement and launched a partnership with Uber to fulfill deliveries."

Diana Young - Timeline Photos
"I got a lot of raises and had a ton of money. Other people got fired; I got transferred. I had a succession of bosses (who I appreciated because I never had to go to meetings. I saw how they looked after they went.) Later I wondered: why did I get paid so much and given so much freedom and never promoted? My friend just looked at me, as if he could not believe how I could miss something so obvious. "You have way, way too many ideas" he said. "You like to change things." "

Google HR boss on how to win every interview - Business Insider
1) you can predict 90% of interview questions 2) Plan your answers 3) Have a backup plan: Write THREE answers for each question. 4) Prove yourself: Don't just say how you lead. Give examples of a time you led in a strong way. 5) Read the room: with the spare brainpower you have from not having to think about your answers, look around for things (pictures, trophies, body language, etc) that you can use to forge a connection 6) Practice, practice, practice your answers over and over again.

Harvard Study finds children don't ruin women's careers, husbands do. : TwoXChromosomes
My takeaway: One partner has to prioritize career, the other the home & family. It doesn't matter who is who, but make sure you both know which you are and are on board with it. .................. FROM THE ARTICLE: "Part of the reason these women aren’t advancing at the same rate as their male counterparts is that after they have kids, they get “mommy-tracked.” In many ways, they’re not considered management candidates anymore. “They may have been stigmatized for taking advantage of flex options or reduced schedules, passed over for high-profile assignments, or removed from projects they once led,”"

Tim Ferriss on tolerable mediocrity, false idols, diversifying your identity, and the advice he gives startups - (37signals)
Goddam, he's a monster:
"His experimentation didn’t stop there, he decided to test various covers by printing them on high quality paper and placing them on existing similar sized books in the new non-fiction rack at Borders, Palo Alto. He sat with a coffee and observed, learning which cover really was most appealing."

Seth's Blog: Upstream and downstream
I've always said this - even the businesses I've thought of starting mostly differentiate themselves by being different in the "API" of interacting with customers/suppliers rather than in the "black box" of our daily work.

resumes = this is the way to differentiate yourself in a tough economy.
motivation-for-me = Realizing that I've been right all along and I just need to be fearless & execute on it.

ConnectIT USA - How to ace a job interview in 7 seconds
1. Adjust your attitude.People pick up your attitude instantly. 
2. Stand tall.Your body language is a reflection of your emotions, but it also influences your emotions.
3. Smile.A smile is an invitation, a sign of welcome. It says, "I'm friendly and approachable."
4. Make eye contact.Looking at someone's eyes transmits energy and indicates interest and openness. A simple way to improve your eye contact in that first seven seconds is to look into the interviewer's eyes long enough to notice what color they are.
5. Raise your eyebrows.Open your eyes slightly more than normal to simulate the "eyebrow flash" that is the universal signal of recognition and acknowledgement.
6. Lean in slightly.Leaning forward shows you're engaged and interested.
7. Shake hands.This is the quickest way to establish rapport. It's also the most effective. Research shows it takes an average of three hours of continuous interaction to develop the same level of rapport that you can get with a single handshake.

How to recognise a good programmer
Programming is the ultimate moving target. Not a year goes by without some new technology robbing an old, established standard blind and changing half the development universe. This is not to say that all good programmers pick up these changes and ride the bleeding edge. However, there’s a class of programmers that will never, ever pick up a new technology unless forced to, because they don’t like learning new stuff. These programmers will typically have learnt programming at university, and expect to get by on whatever skills they picked up there, plus whatever courses their company is willing to send them on.

Seth's Blog: The victim
Does your job happen to you?

If you're a willing cog in the vast machinery of work, it's entirely possible that the things that occur all day feel like they're being done to you.

The alternative is to create a job where you create forward motion, where you do things to the job, not the other way around.

TAKE A LOOK AT THE LANGUAGE YOU USE TO DESCRIBE WHAT HAPPENED AT WORK YESTERDAY, THAT IS YOUR FIRST CLUE. If you're not the one creating the change, perhaps it's time to start.

HOW TO: Build Your Personal Brand on LinkedIn
Your LinkedIn profile needs to be absolutely flawless, since you’ll be judged harshly by recruiters who are analyzing you to see if you fit their corporate needs. That means no spelling or grammatical errors and it should be completely filled out, leaving no experience or details out. Think of your profile as an asset and as a portrait of you as a professional who someone would want to possibly hire for a newly available job.

A List Apart: Articles: Burnout
he identified phases, several of which I bet sound familiar, are: * A compulsion to prove oneself * Working harder * Neglecting one’s own needs * Displacement of conflict (the person does not realize the root cause of the distress) * Revision of values (friends, family, hobbies, etc., are dismissed) * Denial of emerging problems (cynicism, aggression, and frustration become apparent) * Withdrawal from social contexts, potential for alcohol or drug abuse * Behavioral changes become more visible to others * Inner emptiness * Depression * Burnout syndrome (including suicidal thoughts and complete mental and physical collapse) [2]

10 Skills You Need to Succeed at Almost Anything - Stepcase Lifehack
10 skills you'll need to help your success in life. What does it take to succeed? A positive attitude? Well, sure, but that’s hardly enough. The Law of Attraction? The Secret? These ideas might act as spurs to action, but without the action itself, they don’t do much.

Success, however it’s defined, takes action, and taking good and appropriate action takes skills. Some of these skills (not enough, though) are taught in school (not well enough, either), others are taught on the job, and still others we learn from general life experience.
