1. Language translators

If you have dealings with people who speak a language other than English (and that's over 80% of the world's population), you probably struggle with language barriers. If so, take a few minutes to check out our language translators:


2. Job resource

I hope this year hasn't treated you the way a baby treats a diaper. If it has, and if that means your employer jettisoned you, Mindconnection has some free information to help you get back on the career track.


3. Career enhancement: free writing tips

Most of us write poorly. And that's an understatement. You can upgrade your writing skills by investing a few minutes a day absorbing Mindconnection's free writing tips. Check them out at:


4. Thought for the Day

We've all heard "time is money." Count the hours you spend in front of the television. Multiply that by how much you make per hour in your job, and ask yourself if you are spending your time wisely. Here are some television alternatives:

  • Reading. Mindconnection has hundreds of free articles, and your local library has thousands of free books (even on tape) you can borrow for free. Why not feed your brain something that will strengthen it, rather than television (which weakens it).
  • Writing. It feels so good to get a personal letter in the mail, so send one to someone you love. This does not need to be a masterpiece. Once you get in the habit of writing, you will find it very easy to do. And your ability to express yourself will improve dramatically.
  • Listening. You will be amazed at how good you make another person feel, just because you take the time to listen to him/her.
  • Talking. When's the last time you had a good talk with someone? I don't mean the trivial things like sports and the weather. I mean things that define you as a person.
  • Walking. You can do this solo, with a pet or a neighbor's pet, or with a friend. Make your walks interesting--choose a venue like a park or walking path and observe the critters as they hustle about. Don't wear headphones, because you need to listen for danger (cars, etc.).
  • Sleeping. Most of us are sleep-deficient. When you're 20% sleep-deficient, you have the mental acuity of someone who is legally drunk. Rather than watch TV, curl up with a good book for half an hour, then go to bed early.


Wishing you the best,

Except where noted, this e-newsletter is entirely the work of Mark Lamendola. Anything presented as fact can be independently verified. Often, sources are given; but where not given, they are readily available to anyone who makes the effort.

Mark provides information from either research or his own areas of established expertise. Sometimes, what appears to be a personal opinion is the only possibility when applying sound logic--reason it out before judging! (That said, some personal opinions do appear on occasion).

The purpose of this publication is to inform and empower its readers (and save you money!).

Personal note from Mark: I value each and every one of you, and I hope that shows in the diligent effort I put into writing this e-newsletter. Thank you for being a faithful reader.
