Are you too eager to please?
Being accommodating has its benefits, but occasionally you have to say "no" to the requests of clients and co-workers, Emily Heyward writes. For instance, don't let someone repeatedly ask you for help on a project unless they officially acknowledge your participation in it. "Your time and advice are extremely valuable and should be treated as such by those benefiting from your expertise," she writes.

For creative workers, the writing is on the walls
Companies are filling their workplaces with whiteboards, chalkboard-painted walls, writeable glass and tables covered in dry-erase materials. The hope is that allowing workers to scribble on the walls and furniture will facilitate the genesis and sharing of new ideas.

How to network if you're an introvert
Just because you're introverted and find networking boring and painful, that doesn't mean you can stop doing it, Karl Stark and Bill Stewart write. The secret is to approach networking on your own terms, which means seeking out settings where you can interact one-on-one with someone. Also, leverage your listening skills, which are probably better than the average extrovert, they write.

Your Next Challenge
Didn't get the job? Apply again
Professionals should consider applying for a second or even third time at companies that turn them down, career coach Roy Cohen says. "The person they do hire may not work out, or a different opening may come along, so stay on their radar screen. People would usually much rather hire someone they're already familiar with than take a chance on an unknown quantity," he says.

Post-Soviet "skywalker" is on top of the world
A young Muscovite named Marat Dupri -- the "skywalker" -- has found fame by dodging cops and security guards to free-climb his city's Stalinist skyscrapers, statues and industrial installations. Dupri always takes a camera along on his expeditions, resulting in some stomach-churning photos of his high-altitude exploits.
