How to be Smarter: Meandering toward nowhere special: five behaviors that often come clumped together, each conspiring to lead you toward disappointment. [A great blog post by Seth Godin. I really encourage you to sign up for his daily emails on the left-hand side of his site: each email is short, to-the-point, and very thought-provoking, especially for marketers].

How to be Prettier: After applying chapstick or lip gloss, doing one final dot of it in the center of your bottom lip helps to make your lips look slightly plumper.

How to be (less) Awkward: On tough days, find an email in your inbox from exactly a year ago. Most likely, what you were worrying about on that day is either forgotten, greatly lessened, or you have learned to manage it much easier. The hard events of today will always be in the past soon enough.

P.S. I was honored to be interviewed for the current issue of the Smart Girls Guide, which is an awesome magazine with a great message – you can check out the interview here.

How to be Smarter: Great reminder about success, time, and the value in growing slow.

How to be Prettier: If you tend to be someone who rubs their eyes absentmindedly, switching to clear mascara can prevent raccoon eyes.

How to be (less) Awkward: When taking an escalator, move to the right if you want to ride, and to the left if you want to walk. [Hint: ride and right both start with R, and you use your "legs on the left"].
