    The Importance of Unlearning

    By Sep 02,2014

    We perceive life as being constantly in motion and in a forward state of progress. Further, as humans, we are all designed for growth and for movement. As long as each of us is growing and progressing, we experience a sense of satisfaction and a sense of meaning or purpose in our lives. Once we stop growing, we start feeling a sense of stagnation and our lives become much less satisfying to us. In nature, when something stops moving, it’s typically getting ready to die. In order to experience success in our lives, we must focus on personal...

    Socrates and Your Job Search

    By Aug 18,2014

    Several years ago, we were launching a newsletter for law schools. One of our employees, who was working on the project, decided that the title of the newsletter should be, “The Signal.” He was very enthusiastic about this particular title. In fact, I had never seen him so enthusiastic about anything. The problem with this name was that the domain name for it had been taken long ago and I seem to remember that the person who owned the domain name had no interest in selling it. Without a domain name, it did not seem like it made sense...

    Setting Goals is Their Attainment

    By Aug 14,2014

    Every year in January, I do all sorts of goal setting. I set goals for what I’m going to do over the next year. I do this in a lot of ways, but sometimes I dig out old tapes and CD programs I’ve accumulated throughout the years and listen to them to get fired up. I’ve been setting goals since the first of January and it’s unlikely I’ll be done before the end of January. These goals are just covering the year 2010. I figure I’m going to spend at least 10% of 2010 setting goals. The thing about in-depth goal setting...

    Never Go for the “Quick Advantage”

    By Aug 28,2014

    Once when I was around 12 years old, I was riding my bicycle and a car came out of nowhere, knocked me down, and then ran over the bike. The man who hit me was coming out of a bank and had crossed a sidewalk, not looking where he was going. I was a little banged up and my bike was destroyed. I could tell when I saw the man’s face that he was very sorry for what he had done. I was bleeding, having filed down one of my teeth a bit on some concrete in the fall. Some
