And… happy birthday in advance to my dad, who celebrates his birthday tomorrow!
Power. It’s something we all want, whether on a personal or professional level (and whether or not we admit it). The balance of power can almost instantaneously affect the way we interact with the world around us. Be it the quiet power of saying “no,” or the confident power of asking “why,” the seven posts in this week’s roundup reaffirm my belief that power is yours for the taking… or the making.
Why: Martina McGowan explains why “no” is a two letter word that can give us infinite power both professionally and personally.
Why: Lisa Gerber shares her personal experience with “writing” goals down and how that simple act empowers us to achieve them.
Why: Very little can make you feel more powerless than being lowered from an elevated position through no fault of your own. This happened to me recently, and I (re)learned how to pick up the pieces and move on.
Why: Mary Deming Barber‘s take on “why?” will help you put in place the steps for real world success with your PR clients and programs.
Why: Randy Bowden shares why power is literally in your fingertips every time you send a tweet.
