What Motivates Us
by Suzanne Bates - Sep, 2012
Have you ever been standing in a beautiful place, all by yourself, taking it all in? Have you ever found yourself thinking something like, "This is what it's all about?" It happened to me a few weeks ago as I stood on Popponesset Beach. The calendar had turned, and with the summer tourists gone, there were only a few fortunate souls observing this sparkling day on the shores of Nantucket Sound. As the waves washed gently...
How to Be Happier at Home (and Work)
by Alexandra Levit - Sep, 2012
Gretchen Rubin has been a friend of mine since the early days of our blogs. Her first book, The Happiness Project, became an international bestseller, and I was excited to read her latest effort, Happier at Home.

Since I specialize in careers and work, I naturally zeroed in on the part of the book that focuses on work/li...

The Risk of Not Taking Risks
by John E. Kobara - Sep, 2012
How will I know when I can take a risk? This may be the most popular question I get. Some hear about my career path and some are hovering around a decision and they wonder---How will I know when to jump? How will I know if it is worth it? How will I know if I should take the chance? We are confronted with these decisions everyday and I assert almost every moment. Managing risk, choosing options, deciding not to say somet...
USING YOUR WHINE FACTOR
by Nan S. Russell - Aug, 2012
Brian's work was exceptional. Still, as his boss, I rarely offered him additional responsibilities, never thought of promoting him, or selecting him for a critical project. Why? His whine factor got in the way. He was quick to complain to anyone who'd listen how much work was on his plate, or how hard or how late he worked. His whine factor was a protective shield that insured he didn't get more work to do. However, it also...

Living in Yesterday’s Trash
by Valerie Sokolosky - Aug, 2012
Who wants to live with yesterday’s trash? Show of hands? Just as I thought. No one. So, why do we keep looking in the rear view mirror at yesterday’s rubbish in our lives, like the disappointment when we didn’t get the promotion…the times the people we thought had our back, yet let us down…or that deep resentment we felt over a business deal. I’ve always known it did no good to dig up the past. But what about those of us...

by Dawn Lennon - Aug, 2012
We just don’t like it. We often fear it, dread it, struggle to avoid it, and sometimes succumb to it. Failure tests us. It makes us face up to what we’re made of. Failure and fear are ominous bedfellows. They feed each other and us too in ways that can be crushing. Embracing failure If we want to succeed, we need to welcome failure. It’s our greatest teacher.
