    How To Become So Good They Can't Ignore You

    When asked for advice, comedian Steve Martin likes to say, "Be so good they can't ignore you."  Whether you're just starting out in your career or trying to get to the next level, your goal should be to master your craft to the point where people can't help but notice.  In his book "So Good They Can't Ignore You," Georgetown University professor Cal Newport shares his insights on how people can achieve their goals and use their skills to create a fulfilling and passionate career.  Here are five steps to becoming so good they'll have to pay attention. 1. Don't follow your passion. Being passionate about your work is a great goal. However, "following your passion" is not going to get you there because it has two fundamental problems. The first…

    Lying to the boss about family obligations

      A friend of mine who held a high position in an entertainment conglomerate told me that one afternoon, she lied to her boss about where she was going. She was going to her daughter's dance class. She had missed every class since her daughter enrolled. But she told her boss she was going to a business meeting. When she got to the dance class, she couldn't believe what she saw -- a top executive at her company who was there to watch his daughter. She begged him not to say a word to anyone and he seemed shocked that she would be worried about her job enough to hide her whereabouts. I completely understood why she did it. Working Mother Magazine reported…

    Harvard Business School Graduates Are Flocking To Silicon Valley

    Where do Harvard Business School graduates move after completing their MBAs? The simple answer: San Francisco and New York.  According to a new interactive map that shows exactly how the class of 2014 dispersed in the U.S., about half of the graduates flocked to one of these two areas. The map, created by a team of HBS grads, shows the number of students in each state, highlighting which cities are most popular:   That nearly a quarter of HBS grads — 200 in total — settled in New York City isn't too surprising, since it's one of the biggest finance hubs in the world, with prestigious companies like Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan Chase. New York is also home to a myriad of other industries, including…

    Do Women Really Have Effective Communication Skills?

    Women are great communicators… aren’t we? Well, it depends on what you think the most successful aspect of communication really is. Mary hits it right on the nose. Good communicators, and powerful people, are excellent listeners. Effective communications skills start with listening. - InPower Editors Sometimes, I like to think I’m a card carrying member of the Successful Communicator Club simply because I am a woman. As women, we can sometimes fall for the stereotype that we are members of the gender of superior communicators. Pop-psychology and pop-research can trick us into believing that we will always out-communicate a spouse, a boyfriend, a male boss. But if that were true, why are there so many articles giving us advice for how we could listen better to…

    7 Little Things You Should Quit to be Happy & Successful

    Do you ever wonder if you will ever be truly happy in your life? Do you wonder if happiness is just a hoax and success is an illusion? Do you feel like they don’t really exist? I felt like this a little while ago. At the time, I was making six-figure income, was working for my dream company (Apple) and had a flexible work schedule. In spite of all this, I was miserable. To make things worse one day, my 10 yr old daughter said, “ Mommy you are just not nice when you come back from your job”. That was a wake up call. I wanted to make a change. I wanted to be happy.  I wanted to be a good mom. But I didn’t know…

    9 Signs You Desperately Need A Vacation

    Have you been feeling sluggish lately? Overwhelmed at work? Easily irritated? These signs of stress can indicate that you’re on the path to burning out, which can lead to depression, anxiety, and weight gain. And they may also mean that you're in serious need of a vacation. Experts say it’s important to take care of yourself at the first hint of burnout to ensure you’re not working yourself into the ground. So, if you’re experiencing one or more of these signs, consider giving yourself a break to de-stress and clear your head: You're always tired. If you find yourself feeling tired more often than usual, ask yourself if it could be a symptom of a bigger problem. Chronic fatigue, in which you move slowly, take…

    40 High-Paying Jobs That Don't Require A Bachelor's Degree

    In today's uncertain economy, a college education no longer guarantees you a high-paying job. But on the flip side, if you don't want to go to college, you don't have to — you can still get a high-paying job without a bachelor's degree. According to new data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the following are the 40 highest-paying jobs that don't require workers to have a four-year college degree. Each has an annual salary of at least $58,000. The median annual wages listed are calculated to include hourly, weekly, and annual pay, as well as sales commissions and production bonuses. Overtime wages are not included in the data. We also provided the expected job openings through 2022 and the work experience or on-the-job training needed for a particular job. Compared to…

    How This CEO Took 'Smart Risks' To Help Fund Almost 600 Companies Across The Globe

    Linda Rottenberg, Co-Founder of the global entrepreneurship network, Endeavor, knows something about starting a successful business. She's helped to start 580 companies in 20 countries around the world. In a recent interview with Skiddy von Stade, the CEO of finance career site, OneWire, Rottenberg offers two fascinating anecdotes and a killer piece of advice demonstrating how great entrepreneurs think differently. Lets go with the stories first. When Endeavor was just starting, Rottenberg flew down to Argentina for a mere 10-minute meeting with Eduardo Elsztain, an Argentine businessman who famously got a $10 million investment from a meeting with George Soros. When she met him, she got right down to business. “Look,” she said, “I’m an entrepreneur, you’re an entrepreneur…I want your time, your…

    24 Little Things You Can Do To Add Excitement To Your Workweek

    I've finally figured out how to organize my workweeks for maximum health, happiness, and productivity. I usually wake up at 6:30 and go jogging. I eat basically the same things for breakfast and lunch, keep regular office hours, and typically go home to make dinner with my husband, before retiring at a reasonable hour. These routines are important to my success, but no matter how much I enjoy my job and family, sometimes keeping things too routine can make it feel like work. The psychological term for this is habituation; becoming familiar with experiences can lead you to appreciate them less, wrecking your gratitude and engagement. That's why I recently decided to inject some novelty. I have this theory that the secret to long-term happiness is…

    5 Ways Your Instincts Can Produce Brilliant Work

    We all have instincts or intuitions from time to time that give us hints or clues about what to do or what we should do in certain situations. Some people call this trusting your gut feeling. Whatever you call it, science is now confirming that these guesses are actually a process that your brain uses to help you determine the proper course of action. The scientific journal Neuron published research that shows that trusting your instincts, or what they call “subliminal thinking,” actually allows people to correctly guess the right answer to a series of difficult questions. Researchers at University College in London, England gave subjects such a test and later tested their brain waves. What they found was that in addition to getting the…

    13 Tricks For Falling Asleep Faster

    Research shows that being continually sleep-deprived makes you dumb, irritable, distracted, unhappy, and fat — among other terrible things. But knowing that sleep is necessary, and the science behind why, just makes the feeling of lying in bed at 3 a.m. even worse. In an attempt to help the night owls among us get some rest, we gathered the best practices from sleep science. The experts call it "sleep hygiene." Here's a crash course. 1. Get into a bedroom routine.  Do the same relaxing things before bed every night — the ritual clues your mind and body to the fact that it's time to get to bed. Go-to exercises include hot baths and deep reads, which Bill Gates, Arianna Huffington, and other high-achievers swear by.   2. Arrange…

    These Keyboard Shortcuts Will Unlock New Levels Of Productivity

    Seconds you save with keyboard shortcuts can add up to a lot, making you much more productive in a computer-intensive job. Shortcuts can also make help you look like a wizard to your less-internet savvy friends, as observed in a recent Reddit thread. So what are these magical secrets? Below are some that I use every day while editing Business Insider or doing anything else on a computer. Try picking them up one at a time and you'll find they become a natural part of your workflow. Note: These are Mac shortcuts used in Chrome, but many are valid in other operating systems and applications. ⌘+a selects all. ⌘+c copies. ⌘+x cuts. ⌘+v pastes. ⌘+z undoes. ⌘+y redoes (in some cases ⌘+shift+z redoes). ⌘+n opens a new window. ⌘+t…

    3 Mindsets of People That Have It All

    The “have it all” debate is getting old, but that doesn’t mean we still don’t want it all! Laurie provides some great insight into what it takes to have it all. – InPower Editors Last week I shared a manifesto of sorts about how I’ve come to realize – after years of resisting – that we can “have it all.” You can have a great family, a great job, great friends, happiness, fulfillment; the whole American Dream (and the kit and caboodle). You can read my ode to Labor Day and “having it all” here. I got great feedback, but I got some anticipated backlash. Most people who say you can have it all seem to be saying “you can buy it all.”…

    Should Be Syndrome

    In both work and social spheres I regularly encounter people who spend much of their time trying to reconcile life to their expectations. Often you find that their expectations are based on a long list of should be scenarios. For example: By 21 I should have my university degree. By 25 I should be making an X amount of money. I’m smarter/prettier than her. No way should she be picked over me. People say it’s very difficult to marry when you’re older, so I should be married before I turn thirty. My friend summited Mount Kilimanjaro in six days, so I should take no longer than that. It took Facebook eight years since inception to list on a public stock exchange, so my company should aim…

0

So, you’ve just been promoted or taken on a new leadership role in a new department or company. The excitement can quickly wear off when you realize that suddenly, things are not going as smoothly as they used to.
