    A Life Changing Experience on an Icy Highway

    Photo by Jonathan Kos-Read By Larry Hochman There has been black ice all over the roads in Connecticut this week. Even as I type these words onto my laptop, I’m looking out the window and seeing another fresh coat of snow. I know it’s going to turn to ice before the sun goes down. It started with coming back last Sunday from Ken MacArthur’s jvAlert in Philadelphia. Two hours to get out of the city limits with all the accidents and construction. I didn’t love it, but I didn’t fear it either. Traffic was moving slowly enough so that it was an inconvenience, but not a danger. It was when I hit the highway, and traffic moved to faster speeds that I started “white…

    Hiring Managers Tell Us: The Secrets of Standing Out

    We won’t lie: Your first job search, when you’re graduating from college and competing with thousands of other new grads for the best jobs, isn’t easy. So we’re bringing you a new secret weapon. We’ve partnered with online education company Chegg to bring you an inside look into what hiring managers are really looking for in their entry-level hires. We sat down with recruiters, HR pros, and successful leaders at companies like Uber, Chartbeat, and iCracked and picked their brains about the skills they’re looking for, the most common mistakes job seekers make, and the candidates who really shine. What did we learn? Get a sneak peek with this video—a roundup of hiring managers’ best advice on how to stand out in a crowded…

    12 Things Successful People Do Before Breakfast

    “If it has to happen, then it has to happen first,” writes Laura Vanderkam, time management expert and author of “What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast.” Those among us who have managed to find professional success and eek out a life actively embrace this philosophy. They must set aside their first hours of the day to invest in their top-priority activities before other people’s priorities come rushing in. Science supports this strategy. Vanderkam cites Florida State University psychology professor Roy Baumeister’s famous finding that willpower is like a muscle that becomes fatigued from overuse. Diets, he says, come undone in the evening, just as poor self-control and lapses in decision-making often come later in the day. On the other hand,…

    The Derivatives Industry in 2014: Adapting to Change & Creating New Opportunities

    By Nicki Gilmour and Jessica Titlebaum Starting today and running until the end of the month, the Glass Hammer will profile women that have immensely impacted the derivatives industry. We have women running exchanges, clearinghouses, and technology firms that have not only influenced the industry’s operations, but have paved the way for other women to leverage opportunities in derivatives by becoming mentors and sponsors. In the past 20-years, the derivatives industry has transitioned from floor-based operations with a plethora of players to electronic executions with just a handful of major players as a result of countless mergers. The industry is constantly moving, evolving, and maturing. Due to its global reach, there is always a market to trade and a regulatory requirement to…

    5 Reasons Why You Don’t Have Friends At Work

    As humans, we need some form of social interactions (some of us more than others). However, we all do need and thrive on the simple act of connecting to people. For the majority of us, our social fabric is created through work. We see these people every day. We have work in common. We get to know them in ways the spouse and significant others simply don’t. When we leave these people due to job change, it can be painful. Yet, despite all this social goodness that work can bring, what happens when it doesn’t happen to you? What do you do when you don’t have friends at work? No one to save you space at a meeting or light up when you enter a room. It happens,…

    4 Tips For Connecting With Your Customers Online

    These days, it’s nearly impossible to build a business without including an online component. If you’re a brick-and-mortar business, your customers are going to look online before they ever set foot into your store; they’re going to want to know what products you have in stock, what your dinner menu looks like, or whether they can walk in and get service without making an appointment. If you’re a business that operates completely online, you have to work even harder to make sure your online presence is clear and easy for potential customers to understand. You also have to think about how you are going to build relationships with potential and current customers, directly from your business’s website. In our current environment,…

    Tips for Saving a Project in Trouble

    Projects run into trouble every day, but when it’s your project, your job and your reputation on the line, it can seem like a very big deal. So what action should you take, and when? Todd C. Williams, author of “Rescue the Problem Project,” recently spoke with Anita Bruzzese about how to save a project that appears headed for disaster. AB: In your experience, what’s the most common way a project runs into trouble?     TCW: The biggest issue is lack of alignment to the strategic goals of the organization. This can take many forms. For instance, the most common form is a project trying to add some new capability or product for a company, but they are trying to build everything into the delivery—boiling…

    How to Prevent Favoritism in the Workplace

    Regardless of the size of your office, favoritism can wreak havoc on the overall dynamic and morale of your company. Managers have to work hard to ensure that their actions do not seem to be favoring one employee over another. While it’s okay to praise one team member for their positive contributions, continually zeroing in on the efforts of one and ignoring what everyone else is doing becomes detrimental. Here are some strategies you can use to avoid falling into the trap of showing favoritism at work: Remain aware of it In many cases, favoritism happens simply because a manager is unaware that they’re doing it. It’s natural to have certain employees you connect with well, and others you don’t as much.…

    4 Organizational Tools to Start Using Immediately

    I don’t know about you, but I don’t think twice about the little things. That’s how I get into trouble, because it’s the little things that make a big impact when they slip through the cracks. Whether it’s a forgotten follow-up call to a customer or a lost password, you can’t afford to let the little things slow you down. Fortunately, when life is moving faster than ever and our primitive human brains can’t catch up, there are some terrific organization applications to help out. LastPass If you’re like me, your poor password management is a disaster waiting to happen. While it’s certainly easier to use the same password all the time, or passwords that are extremely simple to remember, it’s definitely…

    How Ignoring Technology Will Help You Do Better Work

    This summer while you’re on vacation, how often will you check email? Are you even taking a vacation? If you’re anything like me, the thought of a digital-free vacation is almost more stressful than coming to work. Our smartphones have become integral to our daily activities. I need mine to tell time and take photos — I even use it as a flashlight. (I’m obviously not leaving that behind the next time I travel.) But while there’s no question that these devices enhance our personal and professional lives, misuse can actually diminish our productivity and erode relationships. “Be where you are” A previous #TChat Radio show took on the ever-pressing issue of how to manage our digital lives more effectively.

Robin combines science and years of work in the field to offer practical tips to build rapport and establish trust.

    Want a better work life balance? Exercise.

    Today, I have a lot on my plate  -- work deadlines, kids home from school, my parents coming over for dinner. I just don't have time to workout in the gym, even though I made an exercise schedule and I should be sticking to it. When I'm stressed and feeling overwhelmed, I usually give up exercise to get more done. Now, I'm rethinking my behavior. Researchers have found that exercise empowers people to feel they could better manage their work life balance. People who exercised regularly were more confident they could handle tough tasks. They felt better prepared for the challenges of the interaction of their work and home life and were less likely to be stressed at work, researchers found. "The idea sounds…

    Planning for the Life You Want

    Photo by bibekthecrony By Gary Stokes Continuous effort—not strength or intelligence—is the key to unlocking our potential. - Winston Churchill I haven’t always been as intentional about the life I want to live as I am now. And I haven’t always been as successful at getting what I want. Now I know that simple old-fashioned formal planning about my life makes getting what I want much more of a sure thing. Earlier in my life I probably could not have easily identified what I wanted. For instance when I had been married 17 years the first time, and I had three teen-age children, I was depressed, confused, and adrift with no vision or strategies for my life. I remember toward the end of the marriage trying to…

    CNN Asks Why Male Trial Lawyers Around America Are Killing Themselves

    CNN has a heartbreaking new story that examines America's growing epidemic of crippling depression and suicide among attorneys — particularly male trial lawyers. State bar associations in Kentucky, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Iowa, and other states have taken action to protect lawyers' mental health in light of their high suicide rates. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says lawyers are the fourth most suicidal profession after dentists, pharmacists, and physicians. There are a few theories about why lawyers are vulnerable to depression and suicide. For one thing, the law can attract workaholics who are prone to stress. The law — particularly trial law — also involves constant strife and conflict, which can be inherently stressful and depressing. "There are a lot of high stress professions,"…

The Official Ground Rules for Moving Back Home with Mom and Dad

0

Did you just move back in with your parents? It’s time to start the clock.

A survey from Coldwell Banker Real Estate found that parents think 20-somethings can live at home up to five years. After that, it’s back to the real world and the vast unknown — or, you know, the pull-out couch in a buddy’s apartment.

A combination of student debt, the tough job market and a desire to save money have Millennials returning home at a record pace. A study from Pew Research reveals the number of people between the ages of 18 and 31 living with mom and dad rose 36 percent  in 2012.

As we cohabitate, let it be known far and wide — these are the official ground rules for moving back with our parents:

1. We are a family and also roommates. The arrangement may be tricky at times, but we’re all grownups and will make it work.

2. I, your child, will never, ever complain about a (free) home-cooked meal — no matter how it tastes.

3. I don’t need to tell you where I’m going on a Saturday night, and you certainly shouldn’t stay up until I get back. I will, however, keep my phone on if you need me.

4. We can exist in the same space without constantly making small talk. And it’s OK to come and go without necessarily saying “Hi” and “Bye.”

5. You must always knock before coming into my room. Even if the lights are off and there’s no sound. Even if you’re 100 percent positive I’m not home.

6. While I only need five hours of sleep and a Red Bull to function, I realize you need a solid eight to nine hours, so I’ll keep it down at night.

7. I promise to save money because I know my time in our house is temporary.

8. If the grass is getting long, I’ll mow it. If the floors are dirty, I’ll sweep them. If the sink is full, I’ll load the dishwasher. Thanks for letting me live rent-free.

9. The words “curfew” and “you are grounded” no longer exist. I don’t enjoy hearing the phrase “pick your clothes up off the floor,” but I can’t stop you from saying it.

10. You can go out of town for the weekend and trust that, while I will throw a party, my friends have matured and won’t break expensive things like they did in high school.

11. If you need me to chip in for bills or groceries, just say the word.

12. Whether it’s for one week, six months or five whole years, I will never forget to thank you for letting me come back home when I need it most.
