Arruda and Dixson warn: you are being googled. Internet research is now a no-brainer in the hiring process, whether you are applying for a job or pitching your bid. So, how can you impress recruiters and clients when they perform this kind of reference check? The authors offer steps to making you digitally distinctive.

So I had to think about if I have ever been Googled and I remembered when I was getting hired at some interviews the interviewer was talking about my blog… I thought to myself “Huh? How did they get my blog address?” I guess I have been Googled a couple of times that I know of…

This is kind of funny but if you Google “Anthony Burns” you get responses about the “African American Fugitive Slave”, that’s obviously not me but I thought it was kind of funny.

The Happy At Work Manifesto – GREAT, GREAT, GREAT!!!

That’s right another GREAT manifesto from ChangeThis.com… I read this one today at work and it made me feel better immediately…

Here’s what the author had to say about the manifesto: Much of what happens to us in life is beyond our control, but Kjerulf tells us that being happy at work is a choice. His message is simple, yet inspiring: When you decide to take steps toward being happy, you can be.

Here’s what you must know and do to make yourself happy at work…
1: I choose to be happy at work.
2: I can be happy at work.
3: My happiness at work is my responsibility.
4: Knowing what makes me happy or unhappy at work is my responsibility.
5: Letting others know what makes me happy or unhappy at work is my responsibility.
6: Something will happen when I do something.
7: I know that my happiness at work affects my happiness outside of work.
8: I know that happiness at work affects my health.
9: I may end up spending most of my waking hours at work—I want to make those hours count.
10: It’s OK to have a bad day at work.

Another Manifesto from ChangeThis.com

Here’s a great article for those late-style leaders….

“What do Warren Buffett and Rupert Murdock have in common with Titian and Bach? Just as artistic skill is honed over years of hard work and many a masterpiece was created late in an artist’s life, these Late-Style leaders are rejuvenating leadership instead of handing off their power. ” – Harriet Rubin

Once again another great manifesto from ChangeThis.com… I haven’t read it yet but let me know what you think…

Another Manifesto from ChangeThis.com

“10 Guidelines to Effective Brainstorming”

I just found another great manifesto on ChangeThis.com… I highly suggest you check out this website for more manifestos that could change your life…

Here’s my favorites from the 10 Guidelines:

2. Invite Others To The Party
I think collaboration on brainstorming is a great idea and can only increase the chances of a great brainstorming session, however, not all brainstorming sessions need to be a group effort.

6. Become A Generator Machine
After reading this one, all I could think about is this NASCAR t-shirt I have it says “PUSH IT 2 THE LIMIT.” You should do this when brainstorming keep going and get some great ideas.

10. Threaten Yourself
The first thing I learned about leadership was never stop training and birthing new leaders. If I can’t step away on a weekend and have things running like I was there then I haven’t effectively trained my staff and new leaders. Continue to put yourself in “good” threatening positions where you may not have a job and you can climb the ladder of leadership.

Once again another great manifesto from ChangeThis.com. I just can’t believe how much information they have and how they help me become a better employee, leader, and person.
