Several years ago a long-term relationship I was in ended and I felt absolutely terrible: the person I was with could not stop fraternizing with other men. At least a few times a week, she would be out with a different man and say it was related to work. We lived together and she would come home late – sometimes she would make excuses that she was staying with friends and would not come home at all. Eventually, I was so angry about this all the time that the relationship ended. One ofcontinue reading >>
Many years ago, I hired a very successful and well-known recruiter to work for our company. This recruiter was a “superstar” sort of recruiter, who generated millions of dollars in fees wherever he went.

In fact, I made such a presentation to the student counsel one year that they gave me over 35% of the student activities budget to bring in famous speakers and...continue reading >>
We are always fixing things. Always. We are always doing everything within our power to fix this or that, and we are continually trying to improve things because nothing is ever perfect for us.

In contrast, the people who plan properly and who relentlessly seek out information seem to be...continue reading >>
