Tips for maintaining productivity during the holidays
Take the energy you usually expend at work and channel it in other facets of your life, such as family, friends and reflecting on the year, suggests Chris Goulakos, co-founder of The Square Mile Group. This in turn will "provide the motivation to continue elevating our productivity at work -- thus creating a virtuous cycle between our professional and personal lives," Goulakos says. Forbes (12/8)

How to recognize the best career advice
When it comes to good career and job-seeking advice, it's best to take suggestions with a grain of salt, advises Stephanie Eberle, the career center director at the Stanford School of Medicine. "A good mentor will give you options based on what they've seen and help you come up with your own ideas for how to market yourself best – not simply tell you what you 'should' do," she writes in this commentary.
