A new week begins and with its arrival we enter the waning days of May. How crazy is that? We are already nearing the mid-point of the year! And what a year it has been so far. Uncertainty and sudden change have thus far seemed to steer our course. With conference season also upon us, I have no doubt that a heavy focus will be given to dealing with such turbulent times. Our Monday highlights are reflection of what is happening in our industry and in our world. Even during the most unpredictable of times, there are strategies and solutions to keep us well in the game. We just have to rely on the wisdom and willingness of our colleagues. Take a few these tips to heart as you plunge into the days ahead.

Not Just Semantics

Hats off today to Sabrina Pacifi for finding a marvelous thinkpiece to start the week. Is it enough to be important in your organization? Or do these times call for something even more? Kathy Morris recently did a Q&A on the importance of being indispensable. Sabrina found it on LinkedIn and got the permission to reprint it on her LLRX blog. This is a discussion not to be missed! Read it in full at: Indispensable vs Important.

Staying on Track

A great deal of the uncertainty in the United States these days is coming from the tippy-top on down. Our own federal government seems to be in quite the state of flux. Wolters Kluwer is trying to help us make some sense of it all. Bob Ambrogi writes about a new and so far free resource from the company that is designed to help users "stay on top of important legislative, regulatory and executive actions." The Federal Developments Knowledge Center is still in beta, but looking pretty cool. Check it out at: New Wolters Kluwer Product Tracks Federal Developments - And Is Free For Now.
