My boss just gave me this and said...

"Figure out how we can use this."

Any ideas?

Taking the +Thalmic Labs​ Myo out for a walk this morning to test the gesture accuracy while doing moderate exercise. Definitely a cool way to manage your play list without having to look at your phone, watch or other display.

What are you not doing that you could be doing to be better at what you want to become?

I was caught up this morning when I came into the office and thought I would take a moment to share some thoughts on +LinkedIn. Feel free to check it out and let me know what you think over there or in the comments below.

If you already have your dream job, this post isn't for you. This is for the rest of us that work to find purpose in our work, to seek mastery in the things we enjoy doing and to be passionate about the things we love.What's your passion? Is it completing RFPs or updating data tables in Excel spreadsheets? Probably not.Are there elements of your job that you do enjoy doing though? Hopefully.What defines the future of your career isn't the mastery...

Thanks for the shout-out, Pete, but just remember who gave you your first cookbook and set of measuring spoons when you were four years old.

Marriott Just Launched a New Website All About Traveling

Great news about +Marriott's newest innovation, Marriott Traveler (http://traveler.marriott.com/), a website dedicated to giving you the inside scoop with fresh authentic content on all of the destinations you love to visit.

I absolutely love +David Beebe's quote in this one, "If all you do is talk about yourself, there’s not going to be a second date. You’ve got to ease into it and ask questions about the other person.”

A lot of this strategy could also be applied to your content marketing strategy. Are you spending too much time talking about your products and services and not enough time exploring and discussing the things your customers are really interested in?

It's great working for a company that is moving forward with tremendous speed and incredible innovation. It's days like today when I'm proud to say, #IWorkForMarriott .

#Marketing   #ContentMarketing   #Hotels   #Travel  
Millennials don’t want traditional advertising, Marriott said: They want to be informed and entertained.

Introduction
You've probably never heard of me, and that's okay. In fact, that's what Google+ is all about. Unlike traditional social media, Google+ is based on the interest graph. Here you're free to connect with people that share the same interests and passions as you.

What I Post About: If you're looking to figure out what circles to include me in, here are a few things that I often post about:

- Travel
- Technology
- Food & Drink
- Google Glass
- Google+ Hangouts

I don't ever post about one certain thing, and I always try to create a conversation around my posts. I encourage everyone interested to join the conversation in the comments. It's a great way to meet new people that share your passion.

My Blog:

PeterGMcDermott.com - I am also available to write guest posts, just send me a message through my profile or ping me in a private post to let me know what you're looking for.

My Google+ Communities:

Community Moderators - This is a grassroots community of moderators that come together to share the experience and expertise in effort to help each other build stronger communities.

Blogging for Beginners - A community for new and intermediate bloggers to learn more about blogging.

Nashville+ - Your source for everything you need to know about Nashville, Tennessee. This community shares information about businesses, events, food, jobs, music, technology and more! If you're just visiting, or here to stay, Nashville+ is your source for everything Nashville.

If you're looking for the directory of my most prominent posts, I've moved them to my blog. You can find them here: How to Do Almost Anything on Google+. The post is a bit dated though, as a lot of the Google+ user interface has changed and evolved over time.

How to Use Google+: http://epublishunum.com/making-killer-google-plus-profiles/ - A great resource by my good friend Evo Terra.

Have we met? I like to keep track of everyone that I've met in person to ensure I keep them in my circles. If you'd like to tell me how we met, please do on the comments of this post: http://goo.gl/WLxr8A

Best Restaurant in Flower Mound There, I said it. Anamia's consistently delivers great service, wonderful drinks and amazing elevated Tex-Mex cuisine at reasonable prices. Come on the weekend and you'll usually find a line. Don't worry, it's worth the wait. Wanting to try the best of the best? The Tacos A La Mexicana feature a trio of succulent brisket tacos with a delicious cup of bean soup with an avocado salad and Mexican rice. Keep coming back and the staff will remember your face, your drink and your favorite things to order. This spot is full of energy and great for a family or first date. If I could give it six stars, I would.

So-So Experience Tonight with Great Recovery Normally, I would give this place 4 stars. Only not 5 because I think the beer is too expensive. $7 a pint is pushing it. Tonight the service was subpar. Our waiter offered us dessert before we had our pizza. Twenty minutes later we're still waiting. It's my wife's 30th birthday. This is embarrassing for me. I hope it's embarrassing for him. Update: Manager apologized, bought us a pie and a pair of cocktails and the server made up. Everything turned out great! As they say, all's well that ends well.

An Enhanced Soul Food Experience Having moved to Texas from Tennessee, I was disappointed in the lack of true southern cooking options. In search of something new, my fiance and I decided to give this place a shot after leaving the Galleria and we are glad we did. The menu is a "modern/gourmet" take on soul food favorites like chicken and waffles and shrimp and grits. I had the shrimp, fish and grits with jalapeño grits, red eye gravy and an egg over easy. To sop up the extra gravy, I ordered some cornbread. The food was absolutely delicious and my soul will leave renewed.

Esparza's is a Grapevine staple. Located right off of Main Street, Esparza's offers a wide variety of Mexican and Tex Mex dishes along with a full bar. There is patio seating outside which is a great way to enjoy the cooler months in Texas. Drinks here can get expensive, with most margaritas between $10-$15. With just a few drinks and standard fare, you can quickly rack up the tab. Also, the inside dining room by the bar is very noisy. Pro: right across the street from an EV charging station Con: the local birds tend to frequent the patio outside, looking for stray tortilla strips

This place sucks. For starters, the menu has over 50 entree options, including a $14.99 hot dog. How they are able to keep all of the exotic ingredients fresh and in supply to fuel this menu is beyond me. I ordered the brisket. A Texas staple. It had to have been the safe choice. Instead, I was brought what looked like sliced roast beef covered in spicy barbecue sauce and jalapeño slices. The meat was just "warm" and the barbecue sauce tasted like your generic grocery store variety. The beans were under seasoned and the Cole slaw was overly spicy. The best part? My fiancé was lucky enough to find a rotten potato in her French fries. We feel bad for the server who was kind, patient and took great care of us. Edit: upon informing the server of the rotten potato, we were informed that they come out of a frozen bag. SMH
