By J.T. O'Donnell Last week, I wrote about the 4 words that control most career decisions. I was hoping to point out how, in this economy, our country is seeing first-hand why evaluating a person based on what they do for a living is flawed. At the end, I suggested that people stop asking "What do you do?" and start asking, "What do you like to do?" This simple change in approach offers so many benefits. Here are just few: 1) You get the person talking about something they love, which makes them happier. 2) You get to witness the person become relaxed and happy, which will make you feel better. 3) You'll get to know the person more deeply, an important part of effective professional relationship building. 4) The person will remember your interest in them, increasing their respect for you. Need I say more? So, here's my challenge: Ask as many people today as you can what they like to do. Then, come back here and post your experiences. Share with readers the reaction you got and the impact it had. Let's build a post that showcases the power of this simple action. Hey, I'll start: What do YOU like to do? Tell me below so I can get to know you better!

If the stress of juggling school, work, and family is making life difficult, you are not alone. According to a recent study on college employment, 43% of the nation's full-time college undergraduates and 81% of part-time undergraduates worked while getting a degree. Not surprisingly, time shortage is one of the biggest reasons for students dropping out before completing their degree. So how do you make sure that you stay the course?

You might be tempted to use the generic "I'd like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn" template, but beware! By not personalizing your message, you could lose a precious opportunity to network.
