I read a Q&A article recently on Mashable that was with the author of The 4-Hour Workweek among other ‘4-hour’ books, Tim Ferris. Let me begin by saying that I like Tim Ferris and I think his book is excellent. In this Q&A session he talks about a lot of things, most of which I agree with. […]
Many people who otherwise might not normally play the Lottery likely put down two dollars this week for a chance at the record $1.5 billion jackpot. A chance to change their lives.

As I was driving to the grocery store I heard a popular radio announcer discussing how he gets approached by people to listen to their podcasts. He likened it to a writer always being asked to read other people’s writing. I get it. It certainly would be hard to have people constantly asking advice or […]
I talk and write a lot about Passion. It’s my favorite word after all. I believe in finding and following one’s Passion and often this leads to discussions around the kind of work one does. This post, however, is not so much about the kind of work, but the meaning of it. Employees always talk […]
This is a blog about a blog about an essay. Intrigued? I am. It came across my Facebook feed but I ignored it (ironically because I was too ‘busy’). Then my wife sent me an email with it as a link. (I’m never too busy to read my wife’s emails, they’re always good). So I […]
