The #1 Career Mistake Capable People Make | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
I recently reviewed a resume for a friend. She has terrific experience. - Wow... partly it's trivial, partly it's genial... that's the point... if we think about somebody, there is one thing comong into our mind ( hopefully a good thing...), that's his "brand" in our mind about him-her... and - surprize, surprize - the others have the same with us... if we are making too many things, it's difficult to "brand" ourselves, there will be a certain confusion and we will lost opportunities... though, of course, it's difficult to fo follow through... there are so many things under the sun... and (almost) all arr interessant... :-)))

E-mail is like a drug, once addicted it is very hard to start your day without the initial fix, and business owners are no different to anyone else when it comes to satisfying this nasty habit. If you are like most people, the minute you switch on for a new business day, the first thing you will do is loose yourself in whatever distractions are contained in your e-mail inbox, and the last thing you will do is think about the negative impact this may be having on your productivity. This excellent article, highlights the downside of starting your day in your inbox, and it suggests three things all business owners and managers should do each day before checking their e-mail. - Hmmm... Difficult... Anyhow, it's worth of a trial...
