GetSocial

I thought this book was very helpful.  Well let me backup.  I thought the information was very helpful, but I didn’t really get that much information from the book itself.  The information I received was from the 170+ quiz from the site: www.strengthsfinder.com.

After taking the quiz I found out these are:

MY TOP 5 STRENGTHS

1 Achiever
2 Maximizer
3 Analytical
4 Individualization
5 Relator

 

After taking the quiz and getting my results I was able to print off a few reports related to their findings.  Then I was able to refer back to the book in order to come up with some action items in order to have this information help me in my current job to “maximize” what I am great at.

Certainly good information to have.  If you pick up a copy let me know how you liked it.

For almost a year I have worked from home. Each day I am on my cell phone for hours.  I have tried many bluetooth devices, but I have never been able to find one which fit well and that I could hear well.

I have also tried using the standard earphones from my various iPhones.  I have tried the upgraded in-ear headphones from Apple, but they were always popping out of my ears.  The size was never right.

Finally I tried the Bose in-ear headphones.  I hear great with them.  They are very comfortable, even after wearing them for hours and hours a day.  The volume control is also very handy.  I strongly recommend these if you are looking for headphones or a replacement to your bluetooth device.

My former boss, John Long, would talk about momentum and how powerful it is.  Many times I didn’t put much stock into what he was talking about as I [...]
