A fantastic article about simple steps to help take control over your life.  Sometimes it’s as easy as just saying ‘No’.

How to Survive ‘The Curse of the Disorganized Boss’ continues to be one of our most popular posts.  Everyone seems to be able to relate to this problem.

Communication, acceptance of change and focus on goals are a few of the positive signs that you have a happy workplace.  Or perhaps, maybe they are guideposts for how you can change things at your company to turn your company into a happy place.

And finally, a little humor.  I was in the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) Airport over the weekend on my way home from a conference when I had a craving for ice cream. Unfortunately, DFW has five terminals with 70 restaurants!  How was I supposed to know if there was ice cream in terminal C?

Enter my life saver, Yelp!  I don’t know what made me try it, but I did and it came through with flying colors!  Haagen Dazs, here I come!

Thanks for reading our Best Tweets of the Week!

Don’t Be Afraid to Say “No” to Your Boss

“People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.”

— Steve Jobs, Co-founder and former CEO, Apple

Sometimes, there simply is no room in your business life to be a ‘people pleaser’ all the time. Taking a page from Steve Jobs, we learn that successful and innovative people know when to say “no”.  We forget that “No” can be a complete sentence. It’s short, to-the-point, and most importantly, it helps you stay focused on the aspects of your job which actually do matter.  Why are we afraid to say no?

Networking is something we have discussed here, most recently in The 3 Simple Steps to Reach Networking Nirvana.  Connections matter in business, career, and even in your personal life.

“The proverb about who you know being more important than what you know has never been more true than when applied to locating a job opening.  Multiple studies have shown that being referred increases your chances of being hired, yet most people continue to do things the hard way.

According to the 2013 Sources of Hire study by CarrerXroads.com, “a candidate who has acquired a referral is 3-4 times more likely to be hired”.  Yet less than 7% of applications came include referrals!”
