Life is a euphemism for social climbing. There's no shame in deliberately scaling the social ladder.
Happy New Year everyone! It’s the first week of 2011 and many of us are getting ready to kick off the brand new year with a big bang.
Behance just started collaborating with a group of fourteen established blogs, all very different, but all with a shared interest in helping people increase productivity (among other self-improvements). We call this collaboration “ LifeRemix .” The Behance team sees this as a great opportunity to share our tips for productivity beyond the creative professional community. C ollaborations between organizations with different backgrounds often result in great realizations. To kick off LifeRemix, our group of bloggers collected a list of our 100 best “tips to improve your life.”

Great believers in the power of organization to drive productive creativity, we’re always on the look out for new (and preferably free) tech applications that can help us stay on track, improve focus, or just waste less time on the unimportant stuff. H ere, we run down a few recent faves that are helping us magnify our ability to make ideas happen: Evernote . A one-stop system for visual filing.

Former Rolling Stone journalist and author Julia Cameron once said, “What we really want to do is what we are really meant to do. When we do what we are meant to do, money comes to us, doors open for us, we feel useful, and the work we do feels like play to us.” Q uotes like this sound great, but can a career ever work out that way? Ben Barry , a designer at Facebook , will you tell it can. Walking the halls of Facebook’s headquarters in Palo Alto, you’ll see his work everywhere, including a signed poster from President Obama. Today, he’s helping design the company’s new campus, laying out materials for its f8 developer conferences , and coming up with ways to visually represent Facebook’s famous hacker culture.

“There are no limitations to the mind except those we acknowledge."-- Napoleon Hill It has been conclusively demonstrated that individuals who expect to succeed at a given venture are more likely to do so than those who expect to fail. Positive expectations work as a sort of self-fulfilling prophecy--those who expect to succeed are more likely to do so, thus maintaining and reinforcing their expectation for success. Today, we are going to take this analysis one step further and address the underlying cause of these expectations. The expectations we have for ourselves are largely determined by our self-image. The opinion you have of yourself directly impacts your expectations and thus your chances for success in ventures of all sorts.
