Had interesting #career talk w/ a couple of millennials yesterday. Many of the same issues they're facing in the job market, I've had my entire career - and having still in trying to advance my career w/ some work life balance on the side. While I still haven't figured things out all this time later, I was able to share some wisdom about what has/hasn't worked for me.

FWIW I think the picture or the number in our heads doesn't always help. How we work, where, with whom and how that helps us live - and live well, live better - are just as important as what we do, the title we have.

Quick scroll at the Discover button which - 1) Google sees all shopping, searches, cookies and 2) the wide screen of different posts almost works better than other algorithm based feeds. Anyhow G+ discovered a post (link dump) from a beauty blogger (I've never heard of before) and I promptly muted her. As much as like playing w/ makeup, it's for fun.. equating gaining weight or getting a pimple w/ real world problems, just NO. SMH.

Somehow I end up here on Saturday mornings, seeing what I've missed. Not much as it's a lot of posting and not much else outside a few community groups.

Which begs the question: is it still considered 'link dumping' to post your latest blog missive when you that's the 'SOP' here? Never been a fan, know we curate and cultivate our own SM feeds. FWIW something I'm thinking about.

It's the most pointless time of the year. (YMMV.)

Between Thanksgiving and New Years, I always have a dilemma. Do I keep at it - the curating, content, blogging, networking - or do I take a break since it's wasted effort, more than usual? I always stick to it - b/c I know after NY everyone is out in force, working those "I will find a dream job" resolutions.

So if I seem less 'social' these days, I'm not. Just trying to manage a super busy (life) month w/ everything else. FWIW.

This is of course, biased and I'd like to see some takes from the other side. (One person's 'absurd' is another's [alternative] fact.) That typed, the part on the 24 hour talking heads yelling at each other does nothing to advance the debate. In contrast to satire and humor, which prompts more critical thinking. FWIW. From +Vox

IDK this is one of those Big Data feels like Big Brother and Sister watching things. It can be inhibiting to employees who don’t feel free or comfortable, knowing their emails and calls are being monitored, tracked and analyzed. FWIW.
What if there was an AI solution could monitor the level of concern in the organization, and perhaps even anticipate the sorts of concerns that employees were having?

Beware: Broadway Plays Marketing Moneyball. Hype Wins.

ICYMI: During a trip to NYC this year I had a great time. I also had some thoughts on filter bubbles, trends, fads, hype - and the business economics that drive them. (post)

A couple posts caught my eye about the same time, on #productivity and time management. Both have to do w/ routines, and how managing your afternoon (or evening in my case) can be just as important and effective as scheduling your morning. FWIW.
