    Sorry, folks, you still need a resume

    • 27 Comments
    Seth Godin says: I think if you're remarkable, amazing or just plain spectacular, you probably shouldn't have a resume at all. Unfortunately, I think Seth is leading people astray. I could count on one hand the people that I would hire without a resume...

    They really make you ham it up for the camera. And the jumpsuit? Nobody looks good in 3 layers of clothes. I'm just saying. Thanks Australia. That's a wrap.

    The Challenge: Emptying My Inbox

    • 15 Comments
    I'm not sure if I can do this but I am so going to challenge myself. Next Friday, I'm leaving for Australia (whee!). I'm one of those people that has work on the brain pretty much 24x7. It's not usually a stress thing, it's just how I am; always thinking...

    Would you wear it?

    • 14 Comments
    I probably wouldn't recommend wearing this to a job interview. Maybe if you are a college student. There are more at Blackbird Tees . I like the non-job-related ones. Not so sure that the others will do more than get attention, but not necessarily...

    Simplifying, uncluttering and clearing things out

    • 11 Comments
    I started doing this a couple months ago, but I think I may have hit turbo speed, at least for me. I don't mean to sound all new-agey (because let's be real...I'm not), but I've really been examining what and who makes my life better and what and who...

    Australia Travel Log: Day Two

    • 9 Comments
    Well, this entry is mostly for the sake of continuity since I haven't officially started my "holiday" here yet (the word "vacation" elicited some giggles last night). I gave a three hour workshop presentation yesterday. That "oh-my-gawd-I-am speaking...

    Oprah is jumping the shark

    • 9 Comments
    She has David Blaine on her show today and he's trying to set a record for staying underwater. Is it just me or that guy kind of creepy? It's his deadpan delivery. No duh he can get his heart rate down; seems like it's down all the time. Anyway, I've...

    Awareness

    Ah, airports, San Diego this time. Can't tell you how many time I have been in this terminal in the last few years. Nothing ever changes. Right now I am acutely aware of the stink of Pizza Hut. Same stink as always, I feel like it's on me. So blogging...

    Australia Travel Blog: Day One, hour one

    • 5 Comments
    Well, I made it to Sydney; a much easier trip than I had anticipated. My bad travel juju is gone. Good things are coming my way. For those of you disinterested in my travel stories, feel free to breeze past these blog posts. One of the good things about...

    Is it wrong to enjoy?

    • 4 Comments
    If it is, I don't want to be right. Come on, it's been a while since I posted something so totally meaningless. Besides, I am hoping that every last freaking thing about the eighties comes back; if only to hear the groans of displeasure when...

    Australia Travel Log: Day Four

    • 4 Comments
    Yippee! The work part is over! I felt really good about my presentation yesterday. I spend too much time thinking about presenting and stress myself out. I should have relaxed a little, but then that wouldn't have been me, would it have? Yeah, definitely...

    Australia Travel Log: Day Ten

    • 4 Comments
    Yeah, another day of touring. After this, I'd like to not get on a bus for a good while. Picked up at the hotel; full bus two and a half hour ride up to the Hunter Valley. Raining pretty hard, but out guide/driver is a pro. Within a few minutes of getting...

    Australia Travel Log: Day Seven

    OK, right on....day seven. And it's sunny outside. Good thing because this is the day of the reef tour. I get ready and slather myself head-to-toe with sunscreen (big improvement, bug spray to sun screen). Bus pick-up at 8 Am. Big bus. Drive up to Port...

    Rock Out

    Go ahead. There's one with your name on it. Don't pretend you're too good for a little air guitar. You know you love it and do it when nobody is looking. Cool marketing indeed.

    It seems that while I have been down under, my dog Jonas has set up a hotmail account. He must miss me, because he taught himself how to type and sent me an e-mail with an update. Despite the fact that he swallowed some dirt while playing b-a-l-l, he...

    I'm behind! I'm behind! I'll get to answering comments tonight. A'ight? Day 5 was flying from Sydney to cairns. First time my sleep schedule worked in my favor. About 4 hours of sleep and up with plenty of time to get ready and pack for my trip to...

    The conversation about whether to have a resume was taken up by Neville Hobson and Shel Holtz recently on their popular podcast For Immediate Release . They discuss Seth Godin's perspective as a potential future state versus the reality of here and now...

    Ahhh, OK, I'm back from the reef. Watch my mastery of the self-portrait. Prepare to be amazed. OK, first, I dress like an idiot when I travel. Did I mention that I carried on? Mmmm hmmm, you'll see. OK, we left off in the rain forest, correct? It was...

    Nothing to see here. Flew back to Sydney and totally sacked out at the hotel. Having excursions every day is exhausting.

    Alright. Back again. You know, it's exhausting when you have excursions planned every day. But it's been great. I've gotten to see things that I have always wanted to see. So day nine was all about Sydney Harbor. First, the bridge climb. Or rather...

    Last notes from the airport

    • 0 Comments
    My flight was canceled and nobody told me (helloooo....Amex Travel?), so here I sit in the Sydney airport for an extra 3 hours. So I'll blog. I had some things that weren't worth a full blog post, just random notes. Uggs as a fashion statement? Still...
