MAIN LESSONS FROM THE BOOK 
Throughout this book, we have related our hard-earned experience through advice and stories. We endeavored to be specific to the challenge, whether it’s with time management or workplace bullies. After all, it’s usually best to tailor the advice to the situation! Still, there are a few principles that you can carry with you throughout your career. 
KNOW YOURSELF AND BE TRUE TO YOURSELF 
In order to choose your path, you need to know yourself— your strengths, values, and goals. What you are good at or have a natural talent for can inform you of which careers you are most likely to succeed in. Your values are the kinds of causes and people you want to work for and which practice you prefer. And your goals—those are your dreams, where you want to be in the future. Once you are certain of these things, the way forward will become clearer. 
For some people, this self-awareness comes easily, but others have to work hard for self-discovery. Even if you think you know yourself, it helps to ask yourself questions. Finding out how you best communicate, which environments enable you to be most efficient, and which leadership styles you work best under will help you find your place in the workforce. 
A lot of this is learned through trial and error, and that’s okay! Life is a journey of learning, and you discover more and more about yourself along the way.

    The Way We'll Be - The Zogby...

    In this far-reaching examination of contemporary American culture, John Zogby, one of the nation's foremost pollsters, explores who today's Americans are, identifying patterns in our social makeup that hint at the way we'll be. Companies from multinational corporations down to family-owned small businesses can benefit from this detailed information about where we are and where we're going.Zogby gets to the bottom of this topic by doing what he does best: conducting and analyzing surveys. The conclusions outlined in The Way We'll Be are drawn from literally thousands of polls posed to the broadest possible cross-section of Americans since the 1960s.However, Zogby's complex research techniques are nowhere near as astounding as his conclusions: that the American Dream is in great transition-that a new American consensus is building. According to Zogby, four meta-movements are redefining what we want, what we expect of our leaders, and what we hope for:-We are learning to live with limits on everything-from the resources we consume to the exercise of national power abroad.-Led by the youngest adults, we are embracing diversity and redefining ourselves not by nationality but as world citizens.-Simultaneously, more and more of us are rejecting materialism and looking inward for guidance and sustenance.-We are demanding authenticity-in politicians, products, and our daily encounters-like never before.These are the plate tectonics of American society today, and they define us as much as opening the frontier defined early American settlers. They shape our national character. Zogby concludes his discussion of each movement with a list of "rules" for businesses looking to sell everything from automobiles to political candidates.

    With growing academic responsibilities, family commitments, and inboxes, scholars are struggling to fulfill their writing goals. A finished book - or even steady journal articles - may seem like an impossible dream. But, as Joli Jensen proves, it really is possible to write happily and productively in academe.
     
    Jensen begins by busting the myth that universities are supportive writing environments. She points out that academia, an arena dedicated to scholarship, offers pressures that actually prevent scholarly writing. She shows how to acknowledge these less-than-ideal conditions, and how to keep these circumstances from draining writing time and energy. Jensen introduces tools and techniques that encourage frequent, low-stress writing. She points out common ways writers stall and offers workarounds that maintain productivity. Her focus is not on content, but on how to overcome whatever stands in the way of academic writing.
     
    Cut down the academic sword of Damocles, Jensen advises. Learn how to write often and effectively, without pressure or shame. With her encouragement, writers of all levels will find ways to create the writing support they need and deserve.
