    Concentrate on the Process, Not the Results

    By Sep 19,2017

    Some time ago, I was listening to a seminar about a company that was in the furniture business. This company decided that because it was doing so well, it should expand into the piano business, and also sell pianos. They went out and purchased a Steinway and took the piano apart to study all of the pieces. Then they made the same pieces themselves and built a piano. When they finally had built their own piano and tried to play it, nothing but thuds came out of the instrument. Discouraged, not knowing what they possibly could have done wrong, they...

    The Dangers of Getting Jobs Through Friends

    By May 04,2017

    Men are more ready to repay an injury than a benefit, because gratitude is a burden and revenge a pleasure. “Oh, I already have a friend there. I’ll just contact him.” In the job market, it’s one of the more common things we hear after informing a job seeker that a certain employer has a job opening. There is a lot you need to consider before you decide to apply to a job through a friend or relative, or take a job working for a friend or relative. First, it’s exceedingly rare that a friend or family member will ever...

    Push Yourself Outside Your Comfort Zone

    By Aug 29,2017

    About ten years ago, an attorney who had been practicing about seven or eight years longer than me purchased his first house.  I remember congratulating him on the purchase, and his response shocked me at the time: “I am very happy with the house.  I plan on living here the rest of my life.” I just looked him up and he is still living there. At the time, I purchased a house of equivalent value in the exact same neighborhood he did.  I sold my house within two years. Then I bought another house and moved.  Then I bought another

    How to Get Hired Where There Is Not Even an Opening

    By Sep 15,2017

    For some reason, almost every week (sometimes more than once a week) venture capitalists and private equity companies call me to talk about the various businesses I am involved in. I used to talk to them quite formally, the way average people like me talk to doctors, lawyers and bankers. I assumed (wrongly so), that I needed to be a little bit guarded, not share too much information and such. Do not ask me why I thought this way. I think it probably has something to do with the fact that when they call, they say something like the following:

By Sep 14,2017

I remember my first encounters with the self-improvement industry when I was younger. In many areas of the United States, people look at self-improvement as something that is absolutely crazy. That is how the people around me viewed it when I was growing...
