Here in the United States, tomorrow is Thanksgiving. For most of us, that means time with family, great food, and a chance to reflect on what we’re thankful for from the past year. When I look back on this year, I can’t help but be thankful for some amazing blessings. Among them…
* Spend time with my 93-year-old dad and his wife, Betty.
* Healthy family and wonderful grandchildren.
* My team, who make me better than I am.
* The best year that my companies have ever had.
* Grateful for your support, your focus on personal growth, and your willingness to journey with me in creating lives of impact and significance.
John Maxwell’s Leadership blog is a favorite resource for Project Management advice.
: A positive attitude can be a person’s greatest asset
. In fact, an upbeat attitude can take people to places that their ability could never carry them on its own. Attitude acts like a booster rocket, lifting people to a higher altitude than they could otherwise climb.
While attitude alone won’t guarantee success, attitude is a difference-maker. All else being equal, attitude gives an advantage or edge over the competition. Therefore, whenever you have a choice to make between two business partners, vendors, or job candidates with similar credentials, pick the one with the better attitude.
A person’s attitude is more apparent in some conditions than in others. Here are three situations in which a person’s true attitude is likely to surface.
1.When they experience negative feelings
2. When they must deal with mundane details
3. When they face adversity
Facebook has recently improved anti-spam controls as noted below
: Facebook announced this week that it has once again tweaked its News Feed algorithm
based on a user survey, and will now devalue “overly promotional page posts.”
According to Facebook, they want to get rid of spammy page posts that push people to buy a product or download an app, encourage them to enter contests or sweepstakes and posts that simply reuse content from Facebook ads.
Though concerns have already been raised that this change is simply a way for Facebook to boost its own revenue by moving advertising from promotional posts to Facebook ads, Facebook vehemently denied the new algorithm will lead to any more ads.
“This change will not increase the number of ads people see in their News Feeds,” the site wrote in its announcement. “The idea is to increase the relevance and quality of the overall stories
– including Page posts – people see in their News Feeds. This change is about giving people the best Facebook experience possible and being responsive to what they have told us.”
