Some days, just don’t seem to go right. Maybe you get into an argument with your partner, or end up yelling at the kids. Or perhaps work goes badly -- you make a silly mistake, or accidentally delete the file you were working on.
I was in a client’s office recently as they were getting ready for a meeting. They were looking for a document. (Actually, they were frantically looking for a piece of paper.) I asked if could help. As they moved piles around their desk, they replied, “No… I put it right here. I know where it is.” Apparently not. Five minutes later, they gave up looking for the document and headed off to a meeting (late!) without their reference materials.
Your desk job can kill you. At the very least, it will likely make you fatter, sicker and more stressed out than a job that doesn’t require sitting down and hunching over a keyboard for a third of the day.
Starting today, a vast portion of Google Search results will work with you to intuit what you really meant by that search entry. Type in an ambiguous query like “Kings” (which could mean royalty, a sports team or a now-cancelled TV show), and a new window will appear on the right side of your result literally asking you which entity you meant. Click on one of those options and your results will be filtered for that search entity.
The things you didn’t do when you had the chance. That priceless relationship you neglected. Those important words you left unspoken…
Every one of us has experienced feelings of regret. But it’s not too late to set things straight. We’re still here breathing. Right now we have an opportunity to change our future. Right now we can choose to erase regret from our later years.

Facebook announced some intended changes to its data use policy to "enhance transparency", according to a Friday post on its Facebook and Privacy page. The updates include better explanations, examples, and "tips" denoted in the text with a lightbulb, as well as some revelations about how third parties deal with users' data.
In the revised data use policy, Facebook makes explicit that any time one of your Facebook friends starts using an app, game, or partner website (that, is a site where you can log in using Facebook credentials), Facebook hands that service all of the "publicly available" information on that user. Information that is always publicly available only includes basic stuff like your name or cover photo, but users can have their entire profile publicly available, and thus handed to a service.

I recently read a story about how we get pulled into yesterday each time we follow the sage advice of our parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents. Do you ever find yourself — at 30, 40, or 50 years of age — still carrying through on that advice?
Ever have one of those days when you’re just completely overwhelmed? Too much to do, not enough time. Deadlines looming (or whizzing past), phone ringing, emails pinging. Just everyday life for a lot of us.
Editor’s note: This is a guest post from Matt Madeiro of Make Every Day Count. Let’s see if this rings any bells. When the clock hits 8, I sit.
I plop back in my rolling chair, crack open the laptop on my desk, and spend the next nine hours with my butt glued firmly to seat. I stand on occasion to step into the bathroom, but I’m back to my post again shortly thereafter — hunched over, bleary-eyed, and nursing my coffee like it’s the greatest thing since toilet paper (I make no claims to the contrary).
What has life taught you? Think about all the things you would love to tell yourself if you could travel back in time to give your younger self some advice about life.
This is what our sister site, Everyday Life Lessons, is all about. Here’s a fresh sample of our favorite life lessons that were recently published on the site:
1. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. 2. In life, you usually get what you ask for, but it rarely comes in the package you think it’s supposed to come in. 3. Never let one bad day make you feel like you have a bad life. 4. Just because today is a terrible day doesn’t mean tomorrow won’t be the best day of your life. You just got to get there. 5. Tell the truth, or eventually someone will tell it for you. Read The Four Agreements. 6. A mistake is an accident. Cheating and lying are not mistakes. They are intentional choices. 7. Sometimes the person you want most is the person you’re better off without. 8. Some people cannot stand that you’re moving on with your life, and so they will try to drag your past to catch up with you. Do not help them by acknowledging their behavior. Keep moving forward. 9. Surround yourself with positive people who are going to push you toward greatness. Eliminate those who are trying to keep you from it. 10. Don’t let something that doesn’t matter cause you to lose something that does.
