An advice for 2014.

The year 2013 is gonna end? Is it? Isn’t it a bit too early for this year to end? So many questions and not many answers. 😦

I’m writing this in the middle of the night on my phone. I am tired and i can’t sleep. So, i am gonna give you an advice which comes to you FREE! FREE! FREE! I’ve got some great things lined up for myself and my followers in the next year. I know you do too! I can’t wait to hear your new years resolutions on Facebook.

Do what you love. Keep your brain sharp and read this:

There will always be setbacks. You will make mistakes. Others will also do the same. You are not born on this earth to entertain anyone. You can’t please everyone! There will be some people who will try to keep you on their level when they see you trying to rise ahead. Stay true to what you are and why you’re doing it. That’s what makes you a true person. Find compelling reasons to continue when the going gets tough.

Do what you love because you love it, not to please other people! Dream it. Believe it. Achieve it.

Welcome! This is 2014.

Meet Charlie Loyd : The guy who got a job because of a tweet.

Charlie Loyd, a self-described satellite image enthusiast, perfected a better way to make maps with his customized approach to cloudless imagery.

He tweeted a sample of his work to five top mapping companies. One of them, MapBox, replied within three minutes.

That Tweet led to a phone call, an in-person interview, and ultimately, a job offer.

While Charlie’s experience happened very quickly, this isn’t the first time someone has landed a job because of a tweet. Job seekers use Twitter for industry-specific networking chats (see this community-built public Google doc for a list of times and industries) and as a way to highlight their best work.

It’s not just job-seekers who use Twitter. Increasingly, employers use Twitter for real-time recruiting. For instance, National Public Radio uses Twitter to find people who are the right match with the company’s needs and ethos. The organization’s head of talent acquisition, Lars Schmidt, observes:

“Successful recruiting campaigns are not just a broadcast of jobs. They are active campaigns to engage and interact with fans and prospects who are interested in the organization.”

His team developed a hashtag campaign to deliver an unfiltered view—straight from NPR employees—that gives prospective job seekers an authentic glimpse into the company culture.

He also points out that companies can use the platform to get an initial idea of the personality and communication styles of a potential hire by listening:

“There are companies who are listening and companies who are just broadcasting. How someone behaves on Twitter can be an indicator on how they will behave on the team.”

If you’re looking for a job:

Connect: Follow people in your field. Ask intelligent questions and follow up with links to your best work. Add a link to your portfolio or resume in your Twitter profile. Make sure your photo is current.

If you’re an employer:

Participate: Host a Twitter chat to join an industry conversation. Demonstrate your commitment to the community with your time and effort. Don’t just list jobs; promote your company culture and values.

Be nimble: Monitor all of your company’s Twitter accounts to be able to respond immediately to promising candidates.

Make the first move: Seek out the best talent and take an active interest in their work. Ask thoughtful questions and offer to help facilitate a conversation with a shared connection, either within your company or broader industry.

Setting up your Priorities

Can you make a difference?

A philosophy professor stood before his class with some items on the table in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, about 2 inches in diameter.

He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks.

He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else.
He then asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous “Yes.”

“Now,” said the professor, “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The rocks are the important things – your family, your partner, your health, your children – things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.

The pebbles are the other things that matter – like your job, your house, your car.

The sand is everything else. The small stuff.”

“If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued “there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life.

If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take your partner out dancing. There will always be time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party and fix the disposal.

Take care of the rocks first – the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.”

Always live your life the way you want it, but with no regrets.

Facebook Addiction

Facebook. This word means a lot. According to Wikipedia Facebook was launched in February of 2004 and it was created for the betterment of people. It can help you to stay closer with your friends and family and even with your colleagues when you’re actually miles away from them enjoying your holiday in Hawaii.

Facebook started out as a Fire causing many people to love it and also hate it. Let’s just take a 7 year leap like it happens in Ekta kapoor’s TV show. It’s 2011 and Where is Facebook? it’s here between us and its a biggest part of our life, i mean an average teenager’s life. Kids are crazy and going gaga all over facebook.

I remember one incident which i wud love to share with my readers, My neighbor’s 15 year son is on Facebook and its all because of me because i made him an account and after that his dad came to me and said, “Anmol mera bhi ek account bana de Facebook par?”. eventually i agreed, had no choice! I made his dad an account and they both send me friend requests which i ended up accepting. right now my neighbor’s son has more friends on his facebook account than me and he is creating one moe account on facebook. And do you wanna know what the reason is for creating two accounts on facebook. “Are yaar ek account me bahut saare friends aa gaye yaar, i need a change now. ;)”

It happens only in Facebook. A Girl gets 60-70 likes on profile pic and gets comments like, “Wow, looking real beauty, kahaan se kharidaa?”

A guy post is pic saying “my new hair cut cool na?” and all his friends go crazy over his new haircut and everyone is like”mast dikh raha hai, cool dude you!, koi ladki impress ho jayegi” utter bullshit. girls dont get impressed with hairstyles.

“I lost my heel vaale sandels! :(” Who cares you have the time to post it on facebook but you dont have the time to search for it. and no one will like this status! the guys will ask “How, kaise hua yeh?” and the girls will be commenting shit like ” jaa ke Hiranandani complex se naye leke aa, XYZ mall me achha sale laga hai, chal mai bhi aati hoon lene.”

I still have more to post, so keep reading ,facebooking, tweeting and also join me on Facebook: Anmol Jani and also on twitter: Anmol Jani
