Trisha Proud's comment, September 5, 2013 12:53 PM
I have always advocated “balance” in all things and there can be no better place to practice this than within the male - female leadership mix. All businesses should have a good balance of male and female executives……why?......Because the old saying of “Men from Mars and women from Venus” is true……both genders are good at certain things; so why wouldn’t businesses want to have a balanced diversity of key management attributes in their business.

The Legal Balance's insight:

Important takeaway: It's not just whether you use social media, it's how you use it.

 

According to the story: "You're not amassing followers and readers with the hope that some of them will call you for legal advice one day. You should be making connections with other thought leaders in your practice area and relevant industries so that when they know of someone in need, they can refer to you as a credible source."

10 Things to Give Up in Exchange for Happiness. 

donhornsby's curator insight, October 29, 2013 7:55 AM

(From the article): Give up control. Control is an illusion. We live in an out of control world. Learn to embrace the new and welcome change; otherwise you'll grow old through your own rigidity. Learn to let go.

eli's curator insight, April 22, 2014 6:39 AM

type of content: article

this article brings a couple of very important changes we should make our lifes in order to be happier' for example:

1. Give up caring what other people think of you. I know it seems counter intuitive as we humans are primal pack animals that don't want to be cast from the village, but spending time worrying what others think, is a waste of energy. You'll never please everyone and it's none of your business what others think of you.
