I’m sitting in a restaurant several miles from where I live, having just escaped one of the most extensive power outages I’ve been through.

I didn’t know what to do with myself, so first I tries heading to the mall to get some food and so some reading. The mall had no power. Even worse, cars were pouring away from the mall, and having a godawful time negotiating intersections with no lights.

But this world is changing. More and more people […]

We create our lives symbiotically as we explore our talents in relation to the circumstances they help create for us.” As someone who previously lived in a linear fashion, I went years without questioning the course of my life. Since I realized I needed to follow (and figure out) […]

The Psychology of Weight

Would it surprise you if I told you that we instinctively judge the value of an object based upon its weight? I’m sure you’ve experienced this yourself. Imagine a resume printed on thick, heavy-weight paper. You’d likely judge it to be from a better candidate than a resume printed on light paper – even though […]
