Life, Career and Social Media Do’s and Dont’s for 2013

by Richard , updated on May 23, 2013

Well it’s 2013 and that time of year when many a resolution has been made.

And we all know what happens to most of those!

So I’m thinking it might be more appropriate for me to offer up some “New Years Suggestions” instead.  That way you won’t feel the pressure of obligation and can pick and chose from the handy hints of those that are far wiser than I.

David Di Salvo gets the ball rolling with Smart Things I’ve Learnt from People who Never Went to College.  And there really is some very smart stuff here.  My favourite smart tip has to be “if you can’t give back more than you got then you are relationship handicapped.”

There’s some very pithy tips in Steve Tobak’s 10 Career Limiting Mistakes to Avoid. No mucking around here, Steve gets straight to the point.

We couldn’t go far without reference to social media and Alison Doyle doesn’t disappoint with her Top 10 Social Media Do’s and Don’ts. I couldn’t go past Alison’s advice to network before you need to.

Social Media is no different to real life – people respond best to calls for help from people who have already invested time in them.

What I love about the next post is the wide variety of tips.  There really is something for everyone in 25 Tips to Change your Life. I think I might be picking and choosing from this advice all through the year.

I thought we might finish on a lighter note from Patricio Robles in his blog about the 10 Job Titles to Avoid in 2013. The job titles may be tech-focussed but I’ve seen them used elsewhere and I think a re-think is in order.

We’d love to here what you think so feel free to leave a comment.

Good research – a lot of useful links here. I love the ‘Smart Things I’ve Learnt from People who Never Went to College’. So true. I like, “Learning is good; Doing is better.”
