Jane Austen: A Life

   At her loss of life in 1817, Jane Austen left the area six of the main liked novels written in English—but her shortsighted kinfolk destroyed the majority of her letters; and if she stored any diaries, they didn't continue to exist her.   Now acclaimed biographer Claire Tomalin has crammed the gaps within the checklist, making a remarkably clean and convincing portrait of the girl and the author.  
   While so much Austen biographers have permitted the statement of Jane's brother Henry that "My pricey Sister's existence used to be now not a lifetime of events," Tomalin exhibits that, to the contrary, Austen's short lifestyles used to be fraught with upheaval.   Tomalin offers special and soaking up bills of Austen's ill-fated love for a tender Irishman, her common travels and prolonged visits to London, her shut friendship with a sophisticated cousin whose French husband met his dying at the guillotine, her brothers' naval carrier within the Napoleonic wars and within the colonies, and therefore shatters the parable of Jane Austen as a sheltered and homebound spinster whose wisdom of the realm used to be constrained to the view from a Hampshire village.

Pick the brains of friends and colleagues.

Competition for the top jobs in corporate America is tough. There are far more qualified candidates than job openings. That means it’s up to you to make sure your brand is one that helps you stand out from the crowd. People make assumptions about you and even decide whether to do business with you before ever meeting you, on the basis of your personal brand. Realize that you have a brand whether you’ve consciously crafted one or not. Once you enter into a leadership position at any level, you will find that you are communicating even when you think you have nothing in particular to say.

Are you tapping into everyone who can help you grow and lead? Looking at yourself in the mirror should neither send you into a tailspin nor soothe you into mindless self-congratulation. It should push you to strive to be the leader who identifies and actively works on personal developmental needs, the leader who has open dialogue with her team. The strongest leaders are those who are aware of themselves as well as everyone around them. They know what they want and how to go about getting it. Dare to know yourself, and join them.
