    Self-Help Means Helping Others

    By Jun 23,2017

    There is a simple concept that separates those who experience great success from those who do not. I am going to tell you all about this concept in a second, but first I want to talk a little bit about self-help. I have read countless books that discuss various methods of improving one’s life and career. I have always found it interesting that these books are almost always classified as self-help. The first self-help book ever written is generally considered to be Samuel Smiles’ Self Help, originally published in 1859. The book begins...

    The Dangers of Getting Jobs Through Friends

    By May 04,2017

    Men are more ready to repay an injury than a benefit, because gratitude is a burden and revenge a pleasure. “Oh, I already have a friend there. I’ll just contact him.” In the job market, it’s one of the more common things we hear after informing a job seeker that a certain employer has a job opening. There is a lot you need to consider before you decide to apply to a job through a friend or relative, or take a job working for a friend or relative. First, it’s exceedingly rare that

    Setting Goals Is Their Attainment

    By Jun 05,2017

    Every year in January, I do all sorts of goal setting. I set goals for what I’m going to do over the next year. I do this in a lot of ways, but sometimes I dig out old tapes and CD programs I’ve accumulated throughout the years and listen to them to get fired up. I’ve been setting goals since the first of January and it’s unlikely I’ll be done before the end of January. These goals are just covering the year 2010. I figure I’m going to spend at least 10% of 2010 setting goals. The thing about in-depth

    Do Not Be Immobilized in Your Job Search

    By Jun 21,2017

    Several years ago, I was sitting in my office and the most amazing candidate came across my desk. The attorney had a degree in a hard science discipline from a school like CalTech or MIT (I believe it was physics), had gone to a good law school, and finished first in his class. Not only that, he was currently working at one of the top law firms in the world and was in a practice area that wasn’t just desirable at the time, it was white hot. His practice area was so in demand at this particular point in time that one law firms I’d...

    Your Job Is about the Transference Energy

    By Jun 15,2017

    A few years ago I was in India and was interested in going to see what is called “an energy healer”. I was interested in this because I had been to several seminars where I had heard about people changing outcomes and healing others with energy by transferring energy from the universe. I went to see a Reiki energy healer and they did something called “balance my Chakras”. This was an experience in itself, but the real knowledge I got out of energy and its place in our lives between people happened when I was sitting in the...

Take Small Actions and Meet Others

By May 19,2017

When I was in law school, I was standing in a bar one day and the most beautiful girl I’d seen around campus walked up to me and said: “I’m just wondering why you never come up to me and try to talk to me. Every other guy I see around...
