¿Quieres tener más éxito? Lee más.

¿Saben una cosa? En toda mi vida nunca he conocido a una persona con éxito financiero que no lee en abundancia. Leer te ayuda a tener un conocimiento amplio de la vida, de los negocios, de la ciencia, y cualquier otro tópico que leas. En mí opinión, si quieres tener éxito, tienes que aprender a leer en abundancia y con gusto.

¿Quieres aumentar tu sueldo más de 50%? Busca trabajo en otra empresa.

En todos los años que tengo trabajando como programador o desarrollador de software, los mejores aumentos los he recibido cuando he cambiado de trabajo. Así es, y no me refiero a un cambio de posición en la misma empresa, me refiero a cambiar de empresa a una posición similar o mejor. El problema con esperar un aumento de sueldo substancial en la misma empresa es que no es algo común. ¿Es posible?

Cannon Beach in Oregon, a must see when visiting Portland.

My family and I moved to Seattle back in January of this year, and about a month ago we made our first visit to this beautiful place called Cannon Beach. This is a lovely beach, there are plenty of places to park and walk around the long strip of sand. Cannon Beach is also the place for Haystack Rock, an unusual rock formation just feet away from the beach. Haystack Rock is a seasonal haven for tufted puffins. On a headland to the north, trails in Ecola State Park offer sweeping views of the ocean, coves, and a lighthouse. The…
