Our health, well-being and professional success depend upon social networks. Of course, I’m referring to the importance of our connections between friends, family and others in a community, not social media. But check out the striking similarity between Jeffrey’s practical advice for using social media for success in business and sales in his book Social Boom!, Dale Carnegie’s classic principles for eliminating stress and worry, and medical advice from the Mayo Clinic about nurturing social networks to reduce stress and lead a long life!
This helpful tips below were originally published on the Mayo Clinic’s site under stress management, and I’ve provided complimentary perspectives from Jeffrey Gitomer and Dale Carnegie.

Members of the Northwestern Oklahoma State University Art Society (NAS) are preparing for their 4th annual Holiday Gift Store for Kids, as well as Photos with Santa on Saturday, Dec. 14, in the Northwestern Student Center in Alva from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“We’re so happy to be continuing what has become somewhat of a tradition for our organization,” Angelia Case, NAS sponsor, said. “Parents are welcome to bring their kids to the holiday store to do their shopping ‘on their own’ in a safe environment under adult supervision provided by our club members and other volunteers.
“We only allow a few children to go through the store at one time to make it a positive experience for everyone,” Case said. “So, while you’Art Society, Society
If you are in charge of social media at your college, university or school, I bet youve learned a lot over the past few years.
Ive witnessed the rise of social media for the past 8 years. It is really amazing how fast things have changed in higher education since 2005.
While social media is now seen as an important part of the marketing and communication mix, it can still be intimidating. Thats what some students of my social media marketing course (people like you working in higher education) keep reminding me. Fortunately, there is now a great deal of experience and expertise in our industry.
Just look at the speaker line-up of the Higher Ed Social Media Conference (Dec 4, 2013)!
Since these great higher ed social media professionals will share more advanced practices, ideas and tips at the conference, Ive asked what kind of advice they would give to somebody just starting with social media in higher education.
If there is anything that I would pass on, it would be that you can’t do every social media channel well. PMedia, Social Media
Great news for Office 365 users this week: Microsoft has released an update improving the Office Web Apps that are included with Home Premium and Business subscription plans.
While the Office Web Apps started out as a companion to the desktop experience, Microsoft has been improving functionality within the Web Apps with the intention of shifting them into their own, standalone Office experience on the web.
With this in mind, users of the Office Web Apps will notice some improved features and functions in this latest update.
For example, the apps now feature “same-time” coauthoring, which allows more than one person to work on a file at once. Changes made by each author are saved as you go and can be viewed immediately by all. You365, Office 365
Music and image can be extremely powerful in affecting mood in individuals and groups. So the key question is: What mood do you want to evoke? This will generally be to support a mood that is already happening or to ‘change the direction’ of the mood. For instance, if people are tired and quiet you may want to allow for and support that with low key, more reflective or relaxing music; or you may want to shift that mood and raise the energy to help people wake up and re-engage. This is if you are using music or other creative resources in the background of a general workshop setting, However, if you are facilitating an experience primarily through music (similar to 5 Rhythms or Alexander Technique in movement for instance), then the principles are basically the same, you just need to have a heightened awareness as it will be shifting moment to moment, and also a wider range of resources (so you can shift with it!).

Your professional career is a garden.
