Do you ever …

wish there was more time?

wonder why cruelty exists?

think about what life will look like in the year 2050?

wonder if enough will be enough?

wish that we could all just get along?

hope for more but take less?

hope for an extra hour of daylight just so you can dream?

just sit and be?

think about how great your life is?

want for more?

wonder why?

practice random acts of kindness?

go out of your way for someone else?

long for your childhood?

find yourself saying “in the good ole days?”

think about all the possibilities there are?

National Napping Day

Did you know such a thing existed? I didn’t and believe me, I have considered napping a hobby at various times in my life.  National Napping Day is always the Monday after Daylight Savings Time. I don’t know about you, but I could use that hour back so I am going to squeeze in a nap or two this week. Hope you do too!!

Google Footprint

Ever since Al Gore and his  Inconvenient Truth, there has been a steady increase in talk about one’s carbon footprint.  It’s something to think about.  But the other footprint that I think is as important is your Google footprint.

What does a Google search say about you?  Yes, yes, we all secretly have googled ourselves to see what comes up.  No denying it anymore! But have you done it lately? With more and more information being digitized, there is more and more information that is winding up in the public domain for your boss, prospective boss (are you looking for a job?), your parents, your significant other, etc.

If you are someone who is consciously crafting your personal brand, Google yourself on a periodic basis and see what shows up.  If you are looking for a job right now and you were the hiring manager, how would you react to what you found out?  It would be fantastic if things like your LinkedIn, Ecademy, or Plaxo profiles were high on the list. But what something else showed up that you really wish no one knew about? I am sure Michael Phelps wishes there hadn’t been a camera around that day he wais taking a bong hit as it cost him at least one endorsement and a 3 month competitive swimming ban.

When you are considering your personal brand, give yourself a Google and see what turns up. If you don’t believe me, read some of the stories that Seth has heard.
