He Who Sees True Opportunities Shall Always Prosper

--> People lose their jobs. Often people are released, even from the best jobs they might have ever had. People may find themselves in a position where they cannot find a job that is as good as the one they lost. What is important, however, is what people do when they are in this position. I cannot tell you the number of people I have seen completely blow it when it came to reestablishing their careers, after losing their prior jobs. I do not want you to be one of these people. I grew up in a ci...

The College Admissions Scandal Is Peak White Privilege — & It's Nothing New

I went to one of the top public high schools in Washington State — and most of the students were rich and white. My family was middle-class; my mother is an immigrant, my father was raised in poverty, and neither inherited wealth. And though I did grow up with economic privileges that I don’t seek to deny, the degree of wealth that surrounded me in my youth baffled me. Many of the families in my community had boats (some even private planes) and summer homes. If one of my classmates received a ...

What Will Happen To The Students At The Center Of The College Admissions Scam?

Two days after news broke of the largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice, colleges and universities impacted are beginning to make decisions about the future of the students at the center of the scandal. How much did these students know? How culpable does that make them? And, of course, will they get to stay enrolled at their universities?The universities in question are numerous and widespread — USC, UCLA, University of San Diego, University of Texas, Wake ...

You Always Need a Backup Plan

--> Being in the asphalt business in Detroit taught me very early on that things frequently go wrong. In fact, things go wrong so frequently, it is difficult to believe: Pumps break. Tanks break. Trucks break. People get injured. Employees do not show up to work. It rains. The police give you a hard time for the condition of your equipment. People do not pay you for the work you have done for them. Suppliers go out of business. Customers get incredibly angry with you. Accidents occur, and mater...

Sympathy, Morale, and the Importance of Being Organized

In every job I have ever had, I have been happy for the most part. When I was an attorney, for example, I liked many aspects of being an attorney. When I worked in the asphalt business, I loved many aspects of that business. Most people are able to find some level of enjoyment in every job that they do. What is interesting, though, is that in every job I ever had, there were always people around me who were more than happy to stop by my office and go out to lunch with me, just to give me the ...

The Importance of and How to Find a Mentor

--> Whenever I am asked what is the missing link between a promising businessperson and a successful one, mentoring comes to mind. Giving people advice on how they can best achieve their goals is something that is often overlooked. –Richard Branson On a daily basis, I receive emails from people looking for jobs who are unemployed. Many of these people have had numerous jobs in their career and are having a difficult time getting a new job. If you are unemployed or need a new job, there are many ...

The Greek Parthenon and Your Career

One of the most important lessons for our lives and careers comes from the Parthenon in Greece. The Parthenon has been standing in the same location for almost 2,500 years and is considered one of the world’s great cultural monuments. It is largely because of the Parthenon’s multiple columns that the Parthenon has survived for so long. If you understand and employ the lessons of the Parthenon, you should never have any issues with feeling secure in your career and life. I personally have run my ...

Good Things Only Happen When You Are Moving

--> Probably the low point of my life was the summer I decided I needed to get ready for eleventh grade. Since I was young, I had been told that if I wanted to get into a good college, I would have to earn excellent grades in eleventh grade. My father had gone to Harvard and had told me since the time I was old enough to understand about how he earned all As in his junior year of high school, and how this had helped him get into this great college. I intended to do the same. Some of the stre...

Marketing Yourself-Who, What, and How

--> In your career and life you need to be aware of (1) whom you are marketing yourself to, (2) what you are marketing, and (3) how you are marketing yourself. Each of these three things can make a major difference in the success of your job search. People who understand these three components can make tens of millions of dollars in a short time; get a job at a company that is not hiring; easily find positions in any economic environment. Market to the Right People. When I first started wor...

Consistency and Commitment Beat Brilliance and Talent

--> When I was growing up in Detroit, I went to school with kids whose parents were the Chief Executive Officers of major auto companies and were in other high level roles. Sometimes I would turn on the television and see the same men I’d eaten dinner with at a friend’s house on the nightly news giving a press conference in Washington, or speaking about an issue of national importance. Another friend’s father was the CEO of a major national bank and, by the time I was 13 or 14, I was smart enoug...

Do Not Allow the Past to Limit Your Opportunities Today

--> My one-year old daughter calls a coffee cup “hot” and avoids coffee cups lest she get burned. Until she learns that the coffee cup can also contain coffee, milk, and other foods that will not harm her, she is likely to avoid coffee cups for some time. She must have been burned a little by touching a coffee cup at one point and learned to stay away from them. Until she is able to see the coffee cup for what it is (a cup), and not her past experience (getting burned), she will not be able to e...

How to Get Hired Where There Is Not Even an Opening

For some reason, almost every week (sometimes more than once a week) venture capitalists and private equity companies call me to talk about the various businesses I am involved in. I used to talk to them quite formally, the way average people like me talk to doctors, lawyers and bankers. I assumed (wrongly so), that I needed to be a little bit guarded, not share too much information and such. Do not ask me why I thought this way. I think it probably has something to do with the fact that when th...

Your Ultimate Goal: How You Can Find Job Security

--> One of the worst things that can happen to people is getting fired from a job with no notice whatsoever. It can be devastating to lose your source of income unexpectedly, especially in a contracting economy. Losing a job can color our perspective on the world and our future. Going forward, we have a difficult time allowing ourselves to ever feel secure again. We believe that things can change in an instant and that we might be suddenly out of a job again. This fear of sudden job loss is some...

The Most Important Person You Communicate with Is Yourself

--> “The mind can make a heaven out of hell or a hell out of heaven” -John Milton Several years ago, I was home after graduating from college and I met a guy who was friends with my girlfriend’s brother. He had graduated from Yale University a year or two before and was driving a truck all around Detroit delivering meat to restaurants. He typically drove this meat truck from 4:00am until noon each day. He got paid in cash at the end of each day by his boss. He’d been the first person from th...

Shake Things Up, Do What’s Best for You, and Be Grateful

Several years ago, in the few days before Christmas and New Year’s Eve, I went home from Los Angeles to Detroit to see my family. At the time, I was practicing law and also working as a law professor. I had brought a bunch of final exams home with me to grade and sat there grading papers and tallying up my students’ final grades for the class for a week or so. I was not having a good week. I had been working nonstop without a vacation for probably more than two years while practicing law. During...

Are You Motivated by Information, People, Activities, Things or Places?

--> Most people are motivated by either information, people, activities, things, or places. You are probably focused on one of these as well, and this explains why some people interest you, and others you find boring. This also explains why you hit it off with certain types of people and do not hit it off with others, and why you are attracted to certain jobs and activities more than others. The rarest sort of person is the one who is interested primarily in information. For most of his life my ...

Do Not Create Too Many Rules

One of the biggest mistakes people make when they are looking for a job, working in a job, and in life is this: They have too many rules. They have rules about the jobs they can apply for. They have rules about how they apply for jobs. They have rules about where they can apply for jobs. They have rules about whether they will or will not use recruiters. They have rules about how many jobs they apply for. They have rules about the type of work they will do. They have rules about the hours they ...

Use the Power of Contrasts to Drive Yourself Forward

The first principle is that you must not fool yourself, and you are the easiest person to fool. Richard P. Feynman, Nobel-Prize Winning Physicist When my father was growing up, his father used to spend occasional Sunday afternoons driving him through expensive neighborhoods around Detroit and showing him the expensive houses in these neighborhoods. My grandfather was a newspaper man and never made a lot of money. When I was growing up, my father also didn’t make a lot of money and did the same t...

Trust Your Intuition in Your Career and Life

When I was around 11 years old, a couple of friends of mine, Charlie and Dave, had found a use for an amazing garden of sculptured bushes that was behind Charlie’s house. I had never understood or appreciated how exciting a garden could really be. Charlie’s dad was a very successful salesman of something or other, and he and his family lived in a giant corner house on a street called Sunningdale, in Grosse Pointe Woods, a nice suburb of Detroit. Charlie was about the richest kid in our elementar...

The Greatest Secret of Billionaires, 95-Year-Old Attorneys and the Retirement Myth

There is absolutely no question that Wynn is a successful guy, and I would love to go over and see his new casino to see what it is all about. From what I understand, it is incredible. Everywhere I go, I am hearing stories about different people who have reached the pinnacle of success. Because a really good biography just came out about Warr...

Setting Goals Is Their Attainment

Every year in January, I do all sorts of goal setting. I set goals for what I’m going to do over the next year. I do this in a lot of ways, but sometimes I dig out old tapes and CD programs I’ve accumulated throughout the years and listen to them to get fired up. I’ve been setting goals since the first of January and it’s unlikely I’ll be done before the end of January. These goals are just covering the year 2010. I figure I’m going to spend at least 10% of 2010 setting goals. The thing about in...

Once You Achieve Success, Savor and Enjoy It to the Fullest

I have certain habits and ways of thinking about the world that are the right ways, at least for me: If I make a friend, I do everything within my power to keep the friendship going and to stay close to the person. If I get a book, I always read and ensure I understand the contents. If I start something, I always make sure that I finish it. I like to exercise, and every time I purchase a piece of exercise equipment, I read the manual and I use the equipment every day, or every other day, just ...

Take Incremental Steps

When I was around sixteen years old, growing up in Detroit, my mother’s boyfriend for several years was a tugboat (also known as a towboat) captain. Since the job was unionized, my mother was always trying to interest me in this as a good long-term career prospect. I did not grow up in the sort of environment wherein I was meeting and being introduced to attorneys, doctors, and so forth as role models; instead, I was meeting machine operators, towboat captains, and the like. My mother took me do...

The Most Valuable Work Is Work That Repeats Itself

--> When I was 18 years old, I once responded to an advertisement in the paper that stated a company looking for janitors was offering $15.00 an hour (which now would probably be the equivalent of at least $25.00 an hour). Back then, 20+ years ago, that was pretty good money for a janitor in Detroit. I could not believe my luck in seeing such an advertisement and I called up the number on the advertisement. The person on the other end of the line told me to “come right over!” The location of the...
