Success Check In Time

The second quarter of 2015 is fast approaching, making now a great time for a success check-in. Here are six suggestions to help you achieve your goals this year.

1. Limit time with toxic people. Negativity and dissension will suffocate your drive, perhaps more than anything else. Do whatever possible to avoid spending time with people who aren't on the same trajectory as you.

2. Keep learning. If you never learn anything new about your field, it will be nearly impossible to have big breakthroughs in work or in life. Take time out for a class, a book, a seminar or events that will help you keep growing.

3. Write down your vision. A clear statement about where you are and where you want to be later this year can help you stay on track.

4. Stop wasting time. Don't be afraid to say "no" to any activities that will hinder your productivity.

5. Communicate more effectively. Don't use email when a phone call would be more effective. This will speed up your day and free up time you can spend on profit-making activity or even relaxation.

6. Say thank you more. Gratitude can have a big impact on your motivation, and ultimately on your success. Keep track of things you are thankful for in life and never let a good deed go unrecognized.

Coca-Cola bottle as art? Atlanta’s High Museum takes a look

ATLANTA (AP) — The curvy Coca-Cola bottle is celebrating its 100th birthday, and an art museum is exploring the origins and influence of a bottle design that's so recognizable, you'd know the brand if you held it in the dark.

"The Coca-Cola Bottle: An American Icon at 100″ opens Saturday at Atlanta's High Museum and is set to run through Oct. 4. Visitors can see original design illustrations, a prototype of the 1915 design and the work of artists who have been inspired by the now-classic design.


7 Steps To A Truly Effective Leadership Style

If you've ever been led by a Mushroom (everyone's in the dark), a Seagull (swoops in, squawks and dumps), or a Kipper (two-faced and gutless), you'll be all too aware of the leadership style you don't want to be known for.

Fortunately, the simple fact that you are reading this article instantly places you in an elite minority that is actually thinking about what you do want your leadership style to be known for. The vast majority just go to work and get on with it, in whatever style comes to them by default.
