A recent article asks us to imagine we just got word that a long-term project we’ve been working on has taken a huge turn in direction. What’s our reaction: Do we think, “Ok, we’ll have to adapt our plan, but we can make this work,” or “Well, that’s it…this project is doomed. These people never s...

Dare I add my voice to those who have already commented on how divided we are – as individuals and as a country? Politics is just one arena where this is obvious, but there are many others.

I know I’m not the only one indundated with emails. But I’m also someone who is always anticipating some communication that I absolutely must read/respond to immediately.The writer of the article that I found in its original source notes the following:“When I was a child, I loved running to the d...

I’m generally positive about most things but often catch myself falling into the trap of self-doubt, low self esteem, envy – all those things that often cause unhappiness.I also tend to think that peop...
