You may have prepared for a stressful situation such as a job interview, an important meeting, or a presentation. But you're still likely to have some anxiety while you're in the situation. That's normal! Here are some things you can try.
Rate your anxiety and watch it ebb and flow. Anxiety is not an all–or–nothing condition; it exists on a continuum. When you're feeling anxious, rate your anxiety on a scale from 0 to 10, with 0 being completely calm and 10 being a state of severe anxiety. For example, say to yourself, “Oh, I'm at a 7 now. I think I'll take a few deep breaths and see what happens to my anxiety level.” After taking a few minutes to focus on your breathing, reassess your level. You'll likely find that your anxiety has decreased, even if only by a point or 2.

From the moment Dan Shipper (on the left, above) stepped foot on the University of Pennsylvania’s campus, he knew he wanted to learn how to build a real software business with paying customers and steady revenue. He passed with flying colors last month when he both graduated from school and sold his company Firefly (the first company backed by Dorm Room Fund) to Pegasystems for multiple millions. Shipper’s success didn’t take anyone by surprise. Targeted early as a technology wunderkind, he was receiving multiple job offers by his sophomore year. He chose to stay in school, he says, because he wasn’t done learning. Now, having seen his first company through an exit, he has a degree and perspective on what makes a real difference for young companies and entrepreneurs. In this exclusive First Round Review interview, Shipper shares the three tactics that moved the needle the most for him and Firefly, and how beginning founders can get a head start on success.
[post vacanziero in cui racconto tre casi ben riusciti di esperienza-visita per famiglie con genitori snob e figli poco pazienti] Ho appena trascorso due settimane di vacanza, come sai se ti è capitato di scrivermi e ricevere il messaggio automatico di risposta "sono in montagna, leggo la posta di rado"; ho consultato la posta e i…
Musica e foto rappresentano una parte importante dell’esperienza multimediale degli utenti Mac. Per questo motivo, però, sono anche i due elementi che, con il passare del tempo, gravano maggiormente sullo spazio disponibile del proprio disco fisso. A maggior ragione, se si considera che i moderni smartphone e le moderne macchine fotografiche scattano foto con risoluzione sempre maggiore e, conseguentemente, con un peso sempre maggiore. Per questo motivo potrebbe essere utile trasferire la propria libreria foto e quella musicale su un disco fisso esterno, in modo da liberare spazio. Ecco come copiare libreria iTunes e iPhoto su dischi esterni in pochi e semplici passaggi.
