    Share What You Know

    By Dec 14,2019

    Every interaction you have with another person is a chance to make a difference in that person’s life. Every piece of information you have about the world is unique to you. The more you share this information with others, the more others will share information with you. In addition, when you share information, you will be sought out by others. I’ve noticed many, many people are extremely concerned about protecting every single piece of helpful information, such as a certain way of making a sale in business, a good source of information,...

    Why Aren’t There More American Day Laborers, Doctors, Engineers and Textile Workers?

    By Oct 19,2019

    From the time I was young, I watched people ignore the most basic law of economics. This basic law is all around us and it controls a great deal of what happens in the world. It controls who you are friends with, who you are married to, where you live, where you work, what kind of car you drive, and much more. You, too, are likely ignoring this basic law of economics in some part your life. The employer you work for may be ignoring this basic law. All around you are people, companies, institutions, and more who ignore

    Upgrade Your Career and Life by Finding Work to Be Done

    By Dec 09,2019

    Several years ago, I decided I didn’t want to work in a law firm anymore. The problem was that I didn’t know what else I could do besides practice law. Also, I didn’t have any money. In order to continue to make a living, I needed to do something that is among the most important skills we can have: I needed to create work for myself. I have written extensively about the importance of creating work before, because without the ability to create work for yourself, you might as well settle for a life of mediocrity. The more work

    Expose Yourself to Pain in Your Job Search

    By Nov 27,2019

    When I was growing up, I did not have any friends whose parents were attorneys. In fact, I did not really know any attorneys until I got to college. A girlfriend of mine at that time had a friend whose stepfather was an attorney. I met him during my senior year, when I was applying to law schools. He seemed nice enough, and we shook hands and exchanged pleasantries, and that was that. When I went to law school several months later, I decided that I would write him to tell him that I was looking for a summer

    Managers, Idea People, and Workers

    I love watching Westerns. What fascinates me about them is that what typically occurs in these movies occurs in any organization–and the success of this process is what determines the success or failure of the organization. In most Westerns, the plot line revolves around a powerful force that tests the will of a group, such as an evil banker taking away people’s land, or a group of outlaws terrorizing a town, and so forth. The beginning of the story typically entails people being devastated by this evil force, and then an individual...

Are You a Critic?

By Nov 15,2019

The easiest path you can take is to be critical of others. You can be critical of your boss. You can be critical of your job—and the jobs of others. You can be critical of your family—and other families. You can be critical of the government—and...
