Are Facebook’s Privacy Settings A Joke?

Let me start by saying that if you are going to stay safe online, never enter or post any data in social media that you would not want discussed on national news.

Recently Facebook changed their privacy settings making it harder to limit your posts to specific people.  That got a lot of people angry but the reality is that any company can change their rules at any time and your only recourse of action is to stop using it.  When you consider the size and scope of Facebook it is easy to see how most will simply shrug their shoulders and move on – social media is addictive and most are not going to stop posting regardless of the privacy rules.  

Eighty percent of success is showing up

When you’re sure you’re on the right road to success you don’t have to plan your journey too far ahead.

Don’t burden yourself with doubts and fears as to the obstacles that may bar your progress.

You don’t need to know all your answers in advance.

Just have a clear idea of the goal you want to reach.

You can only take one step at a time.

The secret to confidence is preparation

With practice you’ll come to a point of competence.

You’ll find yourself accomplishing your goals gracefully and confidently.

It’s then that you’ll do things that you never dreamed you could do.

When you stop dreaming you stop living

If you want to enlarge your life, you must first enlarge your thought of it and yourself.

Hold the image of yourself as you long to be, the image of what you long to obtain, the image of health, efficiency and success.

You always have enough time

Your dilemma goes deeper than having a shortage of time, it’s basically a problem of priorities.Most people leave undone those things that should be done, while they do things that they shouldn’t be doing

Set priorities for your goals.

Master Life Don’t Let It Master You

Some people are successful in mastering life, while others permit life to master them.

There is a split in you that is very clear.

You must make your own opportunities

Your destiny isn’t a matter of chance, it’s a matter of the choices you make.

Success isn’t something you wait for, it’s something you must pursue.

Don’t wait for extraordinary opportunities to be successful. Seize common occasions and turn them into great ones.

Always try to think ahead

When you think ahead of any approaching action you’ll always have the advantage.

You’ll be the winner.

Keeping a little ahead of conditions is one of the secrets of business.

The time to repair your roof is when the sun is shining.

Try to do things before they need to be done.

Here are some gems from the late, great Mitch Hedberg

  • I called the hotel operator and she said, “How can I direct your call?” I said, “Well, you could say ‘Action!’, and I’ll begin to dial. And when I say ‘Goodbye’, then you can yell ‘Cut!’”
  • I like cottage cheese. That’s why I want to try other dwelling cheeses, too. How about studio apartment cheese? Tent cheese? Mobile home cheese? Do not eat mobile home cheese in a tornado.
  • I went to a restaurant, and I saw a guy wearing a leather jacket, eating a hamburger, drinking a glass of milk. I said, “Dude, you are a cow. The metamorphosis is complete. Don’t fall asleep or I will tip you over!”

Is Facebook Killing Your Career?

The Internet Is Did you ever post something you regret?Forever

Anyone that spends time online, including using social media such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Squidoo, YouTube, the list is endless, needs to understand that everything they post online can and will come back to haunt them.

Can you think of anything you did in the past that you regret?  Imagine having that come up on a Google search complete with pictures and video.  I still run into forum posts I made from the mid 90s.  Thankfully, they are mainly posts about building a home theater.

This is so important to remember – the Internet is forever and you should care about what you say online.  I have a motto I follow whenever writing anything online: 

“If it feels good to write it then it is bad for business”
