Contrary Evidence in Interviewing

On opening day, Minnesota Twins center-fielder Denard Span struck out three times in five at bats (in an 0-5 effort).

Building your Success

When I was younger I had a friend ask me what I felt his faults were. I thought to myself “what an awkward question” and asked him why he had asked me that. He responded “how can I be a better person when I don’t know or can fix my faults”. That conversation has stuck in my head for over 15 years and most recently has been useful in changing my mind on personal…

What Not To Post - The Frightening Truths Your Friends Are Too Afraid To Tell You

Once upon a time there was a runaway hit television show on BBC named "What Not To Wear". For those of you who are not familiar with the premise of this show, it involves a very no-nonsense and somewhat confrontational approach to unsuspecting individuals whose family members and friends have nominated them to be subjects of the show. Trinny and Susannah take a hard look at the clothes that people wear and proceed to list all of the fashion sins they are committing. People expect their friends… Continue

The 2% Difference
