Summary

Are you in a career crisis—thinking about changing jobs? Are "should I stay or should I go" the lyrics for your current earworm? Or does it feel like the choice was or shortly will be made for you? Maybe the life of a barista sounds incredibly appealing. Or maybe you got the big promotion, but it just wasn’t as magical as you thought it was going to be. There are a lot of types of career crises…are you in one? If you think you are, then you are – it’s that simple. Your first instinct might be to jump into action to fix it. STOP! You need a strategy! Don’t update your LinkedIn profile, or email your resume’ to headhunters, or start calling your network. Wait on all that before you create a big mess of frantic activity. The first thing you need to do is read Oh Snap! My Career is in Crisis. Your career is important. It’s approximately half of your waking life. Your identity is tightly wrapped up in what you do. The next move should not be in reaction to how you got into your current career crisis. The next move should be a strategic move, designed to get you where you want to be in the short, medium, and long term. Oh Snap! My Career is in Crisis is a bit like a dry martini: 4 parts pure, distilled Maggie Huffman, 1 part Art of Work by Jeff Goins, with a splash of What Color Is Your Parachute by Richard N. Bolles. Most importantly, it’s shaken, not stirred. Let Maggie Huffman guide you through your career crisis in the third book of her Unlock Your Potential Series.

    What are the differences between leadership and management? How are they connected? What is the common goal? What methods do leaders and managers use? The essence of leadership is to create meaning and to formulate the appropriate goal while giving explanations for actions. The essence of management is to pave the way and to ensure the implementation of necessary steps to achieve the goal. It is possible to distinguish between the choices of having to or wishing to do something. If the chief punishes hunters who refuse to join in, the hunter runs towards the stag because he wants to run away from punishment. In fact, he is running away from, rather than towards, something. This is what we call a negative vector of motivation. Avoiding hunger is also a negative vector of motivation. In the temporal dimension, both incentives tend to be short-lived. If, on the contrary, the hunter bursts into a run because he wants to unite with the animal's soul, he is following a positive vector of motivation towards union. In all primeval societies, the shaman, not the chief, instilled this way of thinking in the hunter. The motivation of uniting spiritually in death with the totem is imbued with the idea of divine eternity and happiness. It transcends existence and imparts a higher purpose or meaning to life than pure self-preservation.

    How disputes over privacy and security have shaped the relationship between the European Union and the United States and what this means for the futureWe live in an interconnected world, where security problems like terrorism are spilling across borders, and globalized data networks and e-commerce platforms are reshaping the world economy. This means that states’ jurisdictions and rule systems clash. How have they negotiated their differences over freedom and security? Of Privacy and Power investigates how the European Union and United States, the two major regulatory systems in world politics, have regulated privacy and security, and how their agreements and disputes have reshaped the transatlantic relationship.The transatlantic struggle over freedom and security has usually been depicted as a clash between a peace-loving European Union and a belligerent United States. Henry Farrell and Abraham Newman demonstrate how this misses the point. The real dispute was between two transnational coalitions—one favoring security, the other liberty—whose struggles have reshaped the politics of surveillance, e-commerce, and privacy rights. Looking at three large security debates in the period since 9/11, involving Passenger Name Record data, the SWIFT financial messaging controversy, and Edward Snowden’s revelations, the authors examine how the powers of border-spanning coalitions have waxed and waned. Globalization has enabled new strategies of action, which security agencies, interior ministries, privacy NGOs, bureaucrats, and other actors exploit as circumstances dictate.The first serious study of how the politics of surveillance has been transformed, Of Privacy and Power offers a fresh view of the role of information and power in a world of economic interdependence.
