    7 Timeless Lessons On Resilience From 'Philosopher King' Marcus Aurelius

    The Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius ruled from 161 to 180 AD, and developed a reputation for being the ideal wise leader Plato termed the "philosopher king." Marcus has remained relevant for 1,800 years largely due to his writings collected as "Meditations," which President Bill Clinton has said is one of his favorite books. "Meditations" is not a typical philosophical treatise. It's closer to a diary. Marcus wrote the 12 books that make it up sometime during the last decade of his life. "That this was a dark and stressful period for him can hardly be doubted," Gregory Hays writes in the introduction to his translation of Marcus' original Greek. The emperor was faced with constant fighting, the rebellion of his general Cassius,…

    How to Negotiate In Difficult Situations

    It can be frustrating to have a conversation with someone who is difficult. You may come away from the experience without the answers you wanted, and believe the person is a selfish, immature jerk.But instead of blaming the other person for the bad interaction, consider that it may be a matter of you not clearly defining an issue or problem and letting the conversation get off track.In a new book, “I Hear You: Repair Communication Breakdowns, Negotiate Successfully, and Build Consensus… In Three Simple Steps,” Donny Ebenstein offers advice on learning to behave and think differently when interacting with difficult people. In this interview with me, he explains a strategy that involves role-playing to improve your communication skills.AB: What exactly do you mean by…

    Cisco Executive: An Internet Troll Is Ruining My Life And Now I'm Fighting Back (CSCO)

    What if you woke up one day and found that someone had posted a litany of unfounded accusations about you on a website? What if you tried to ignore the website but then discovered it was popping up at the top of search results on your name, keeping you from getting job offers, making people at work snicker about you behind your back, even interfering with some of your friendships? This is the nightmare facing Surya Panditi, Cisco's senior vice president and general manager of Service Provider Networking Group, a unit responsible for some of the company's most advanced networking products. For two years, he has been unsuccessfully trying to get rid of a website hosted on Wordpress.com that accuses of him of incompetence and…

    How To Gracefully Exit A Conversation

    Imagine you're at a party, but you're stuck in a conversation with someone you just met. You want to navigate the room, but you don't want to be rude by cutting the connection off abruptly. What can you do? It's difficult, but certainly not impossible, to gracefully exit a conversation without hurting the other person's feelings. Here's some helpful advice for how to do it, gleaned from personal experience, online message boards, interviews, and advice columns: 1. Ask a friend to rescue you. Before you enter a party, establish a signal for your friend to come and get you. Then, when you signal at them, they can pull you aside to talk. 2. Introduce them to someone else. If you know a friend at…

    Why You Need To Stop Using The Phrase 'I Don't Have Any Good Ideas'

    You've come to an obstacle in a project you're working on, and your coworkers turn to you for your take. "I don't have any good ideas," you offer weakly. It's a response that makes you look like you either don't care or are simply incompetent. In a recent blog post, popular author and entrepreneur Seth Godin says that you can overcome this trap by looking at what you're really saying when you say you've got nothing relevant to offer. And that is: "I don't have any ideas that are guaranteed to work, and not only that, are guaranteed to cause no criticism or moments when I'm sure the whole thing is going to fall apart." Basically, you are always capable of coming…

    9 Unfair Advantages That Help People Get Ahead

    Some people are born with natural advantages that put them ahead of everyone else. If you happen not to need as much sleep as most people, for instance, you have extra time in the day. In a popular Quora thread, users addressed the question: "What is the most unfair advantage a person can have?" The answers may open your eyes and help you take steps to level the playing field. We've collected some of the top answers and added some of our own ideas. We'll skip some of the more obvious advantages, including gender, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status, which are all worth discussion elsewhere. Here are some of the most unfair advantages that can help people get ahead in life, and what you…

    Here's An Easy Way To Massively Improve Your Writing

    Great writing requires clear thinking. Just ask Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon. "There is no way to write a six-page, narratively structured memo and not have clear thinking," he has said. Writing, even though you're most likely a long way removed from your college essay days, remains a key skill for success. Which is what makes new research out of George Mason University relevant to you. Something that you are probably doing every day is making you a much worse writer than you otherwise would be, the findings revealed. What is this simple activity that severely dips your writing skill? Simple, everyday interruptions. Good Writing Requires Concentration The series of studies conducted by PhD candidate Cyrus Foroughi looked at the impact of short interruptions on writing quality by…

    6 Job Search Tips to Fill an Employment Gap

    When you’re searching for a job, the fact that you’re currently unemployed might weigh on you as you consider what potential employers will think about the time you’ve spent out of the workforce. If you’re out of work and want to demonstrate you’ve spent your time wisely during that period, there are several things you can do. Here are six job search tips that can help you use your employment gap to your advantage. 1. Volunteer Volunteering your time to help others in your community is a considerate way to spend your time while you’re out of work.

    Balancing Work Demands and Priorities – Ask #HR Bartender

    Employee burnout, work-life balance, and overall employee well-being are huge topics of conversation right now. A lot of people will be able to relate to this reader note: I feel used. I’ve been at my job for just over a year. My boss is aware of my work ethic and has enthusiastically expressed satisfaction of our department’s accomplishments. My peers say they don’t know how I do it. I know how: I work day and night. I sacrifice family and friends to meet the company’s ever increasing demands. I’ve work a minimum of 65 hours per week since Day One. I’ve asked for qualified help in the form of at least two degreed experienced professionals. My manager hired a part-time high school…

    Here’s How Much Money People Need To Earn To Feel Successful

    What makes you feel successful?  Maybe it's getting promoted or accomplishing a difficult task. Perhaps it's a sense of fulfillment in your personal life or satisfaction at work. We all associate success with different things, and, according to a new CareerBuilder study, a six-figure salary isn't always one of them. The survey, conducted online within the U.S. by Harris Poll on behalf of CareerBuilder, asked 3,372 workers and 2,188 hiring and human resource managers what salary they needed to earn to feel successful. A majority (55%) said less than $70,000 a year, which is fairly realistic when considering the average American salary is $46,000. CareerBuilder broke the results down and found that 63% of women and 47% of men who participated in the survey said they could…

    One Simple Change to Live a Happy and Empowered Life

    “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken” – Oscar Wilde For many years I wrote in secret. I would only put pen to paper when the lights were dim, when everyone around me was asleep. Also, I wrote when no one was home, I made sure that I was alone because I didn’t want to be seen. I didn’t want to be questioned and I didn’t want anyone interested in what I was doing. In hiding, I filled up journals with words of heart-break, poetry, love, laughter, inspiration, anything that was bubbling to the surface. Those notebooks were mirrors of my truth. I threw them out. I violently ripped out the ink covered pages. I was terrified of anyone reading them. I worried what they would…

    Meet The Woman Who Cuddles With Strangers For $60 An Hour

    "Let's hold hands and cuddle up on the couch, or listen to some soft music while we curl up in your bed — I am happy to be the big spoon or the little spoon." This is one of the first things you'll read when you visit Samantha Hess' website, Cuddle Up To Me. At the age of 30, Hess is a professional cuddler. For $60 an hour, she'll intimately snuggle with strangers of all types, and bring them one-on-one cuddle time without the complications of a relationship. The idea came to her in 2012, when she read an article about a guy with a "Free Hugs" sign at a local Saturday market. Another man stood next to him with a "Deluxe…

    Brilliant Management Advice From LinkedIn's Billionaire Founder

    The days of lifetime employment at a single company are long gone, and the trust between employers and employees is broken. Companies welcome new hires into their "family," with the caveat that they can be fired at any time for any reason. Employees profess loyalty but leave the minute a competitor offers a better job offer. This dishonest relationship, argues LinkedIn cofounder Reid Hoffman, is causing companies to lose their most valuable people at dangerous rates. In the new book "The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age," Hoffman and entrepreneurs Ben Casnocha and Chris Yeh explain how employers can attract and retain the best employees through the formation of alliances where everyone wins. The authors created a presentation outlining their book's main principles, which…

From My Kitchen

1. Lemon & Thyme Ricotta Toasts

Ricotta 610x406 Make This Weekend: 25 Easy Labor Day Appetizers

  • 32 oz Ricotta cheese
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme (just the leaves)
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 baguette, thinly sliced
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • Olive oil for drizzling

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, then mix together the ricotta, thyme, lemon, salt, and pepper. Set aside. Slice the baguette into thin slices, then bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Immediately after removing from oven, rub one end of a garlic clove over a baguette slice then drizzle with olive oil. Repeat with the remaining slices. Transfer the ricotta mixture to a pretty bowl, then surround it with the baguette slices. Drizzle a little more olive oil over the top, and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and any remaining thyme and lemon zest.
