Being effective at work requires some attention to some basic points. Here are some of them:

Key Points

Effective workers are often the most respected and the most productive in their workplaces, and they’re often the first to be considered for a promotion. So it’s definitely worth the effort to build skills here!

Start by doing a job analysis to discover what your role is really about. Next, learn how to manage your time better, communicate more effectively, and control any stress.

How to Ditch Netflix and Still Watch (Almost) Everything You Want

Netflix price change has outraged many users. Here is what you can do about it.

Here's what you get with the new Netflix: Unlimited streaming is $8 a month. Unlimited, one-DVD-at-a-time rental is $8 a month. Together, that's now $16 to stream movies and rent discs. Netflix says their streaming library offers 20,000 selections; their DVD library offers over 100,000 shiny pucks. (Whether or not that includes individual TV episodes and DVD discs is unclear. Netflix PR did not reply back to an inquiry.) You also can play videos on a number of home theater devices, including TVs, DVD and Blu-Ray players, iPads, smartphones, and set-top boxes. Plus, you get to use Netflix's awesome queue and recommendation engine, which, to be fair, is underappreciated.

So let's take a look at the viable alternatives to both the streaming and DVD services. (Options are kept to subscription services, since we assume most people watch/stream more than 10 movies a month. And presumably, you don't need a guide to buy movies a la carte from iTunes or Amazon.)
