      Here’s When You Should Use Email Instead Of Slack

      Here is the situation: You’re in your office and want to ask a superior a critical question. The query is both important and contains some privileged information. How do you contact this colleague? Group brainstorms. Slack helps eliminate inbox clutter. If you’re working on a brainstorm, the chatroom environment is perfect for spitballing ideas.

      Why This CEO Appointed An Employee To Change Dumb Company Rules

      Earlier this year, an employee wanted to send a customer a T-shirt with our logo as a gift. There was nothing special about this particular shirt. It was an ordinary, 100% cotton crew neck.

      Seven Bad Habits Every New Manager Needs To Shake

      It takes a whole different skill set. Most new managers learn the basic do’s and don’ts quickly—like resisting the urge to brag about how experienced you are and encouraging your employees to suggest new ideas.

      The World Changing Ideas Of 2017

      It’s hard to talk about moving the world forward when so much energy is being expended just trying to keep it from sliding backward. But while battles rage against the current administration’s anti-progress policies, the whole fight can’t just revolve around forestalling them.

      How I Finally Learned To Compete With Much More Experienced Freelancers

      So I hid behind cheesy LinkedIn taglines like “Professional Writer,” and I spun my writing history into sounding impressive. But what that really told the world was that I was scared to be me–somebody new to the game. Looking back, I lost business this way. Clients who might’ve hired me were turned off by my pretentiousness. Here’s how I finally got over it.

      How To Answer 8 Interview Questions You Should Never Be Asked In The First Place

      Sometimes, hiring managers are not HR specialists; they are simply looking for a talented person to join the team. In the quest to hire a colleague, they might ask off-putting or inappropriate interview questions. A job interview is not the time for a hiring manager to get input on his or her diversity recruitment strategy. If you’re the candidate, what should you do? It’s tough to outright correct a hiring manager or to refuse to answer–and that’s where tact comes in.

      How I Finally Quit My Job At The Gap To Freelance Full-Time

      At graduation, weeks before, I’d won a big scholarship, the one that’s given to just a single student in each department. When I walked up to receive it, the MC read aloud a short blurb I’d written–something self-deprecating about how after graduation I expected to be living at home with my parents, working in retail, and trying my best to become a freelance illustrator.

      It’s 4 p.m. and you’re having a hard time focusing. So you stare at your computer and click in and out of lots of tabs. But when you look up, you see it’s only 4:03 p.m. Then, you get a glass of water, which takes all of seven minutes.

      To-do lists are for robots, which I’ve discovered I am not. In my experience, the more "grownup" you become, the more you're forced to mechanically check things off a list just to get paid. That's life—welcome to adulthood, kid. But life wasn't working out the way I'd wanted it to; I got stuff done, I just hated doing it. So when I finally quit my job to strike out on my own, I decided to inject a little humanity back in my work. To do that, I had to give my to-do lists the boot.

      All I could come up with was: “I want to sleep through the night, for more than three hours at a time.” Well, I used to. I’ve been so knee-deep in survival mode during my son’s first year of life, wrangling a puppy, and finding out that I was pregnant with No. 2 when my son was nine months old, that I suddenly realized, while preparing for this chat, that I had no short- or long-term goals. “Well, what do you want life to look like in five years?” my friend asked as a prompt.
