Here are a few perspectives: http://ow.ly/Ks2c4.

4 Tips to Work Fitness Into Your Lunch Break

Think you don’t have time to work out over lunch? Think again, says Amir Khan, health and wellness reporter for U.S. News & World Report, who insists it’s not only doable, but the ideal time to exercise.

Here are his four tips for getting a great workout over lunch: http://ow.ly/Kax5b.

5 Red Flags in a Job Résumé

A résumé is a peculiar document.

The writer bares his professional soul, fusses over verbs and gerunds, though he’s not sure what gerunds are. He checks and rechecks links, addresses, phone numbers and hyphenation rules. He embellishes skills, accomplishments and his ideals. And sometimes he outright lies.

The reader (that would be you) spends 11 seconds on it. And makes a decision: On to the next one.

You know what you’re looking for when it comes to experience and education. But sometimes you’re fooled.

Here are five common things to look for on a résumé that might lead to a shoddy hire: http://ow.ly/KveXa.

5 Reasons Communication Fails

When communication breaks down in the workplace, everything—from morale to performance—suffers. As a leader, you play a central role in keeping the lines of communication open. Avoid these pitfalls:

1. Choosing generic language. Especially when it comes to providing feedback and instructions, you need to be specific and direct. Tell people exactly what they need to do to improve, and describe specifically what they did to warrant any praise.

2. Lecturing. If during meetings you are the only one talking, you aren’t benefiting from the feedback and ideas of your employees. Brainstorm with employees, elicit their feedback and collaborate often to find solutions to problems.

Visit http://ow.ly/Kd6bI for three more communication pitfalls to avoid.

5 Tactics to Help Stop Procrastination

People who procrastinate often promise they won’t do it again, but they often go right back to putting things off, writes Jamie Rosenstein at Lifehack. If that sounds like you, Rosenstein explains tactics to help keep you on task.

1. The Pomodoro Technique: Set a timer and work on a task that will take you about 25 minutes. After the 25 minutes, take a five-minute break. After four work sessions, take a longer 30-minute break. The quick deadlines can make you more productive.

2. Parkinson’s Law: This “law” posits that work fills the time you have. Giving yourself a set start and end time can help you focus on tasks and ignore distractions.

Visit http://ow.ly/K797a for the other three tactics to help stop procrastination.
