    The Magic Asphalt Sealer Tank

    By Jun 20,2024

    When I was in college, my girlfriend had the annoying habit of periodically declaring that the dorms were too noisy for her to sleep. What this really meant was she had decided it was time for me to drive her to an industrial part of town so we could spend the night at a Holiday Inn Express, or a similar hotel. Once we got to the hotel, we would watch HBO on television and go out to eat at Denny’s. Since she never really studied much–or at all–the event would invariably result in an argument of sorts when I would

    The Importance of Fitting In

    By Jun 13,2024

    One of the most persistent mistakes people make is not fitting in with their work environments. Fitting in enables you to both get and keep a job. In terms of what it takes to succeed in the long term, fitting in may actually be more important than your skill level. This little-known observation is lost on many people, and overlooking this can result in unhappy and unfulfilled careers. Conversely, being aware of this often results in very happy and fulfilling careers. The problem is that it is often the very best people and those with the best academics...

    When I was around 10 years old, one day my stepfather stayed home from work. He had a bad stomachache the night before and had felt very sick. I remember he had gotten sick at around 8:00 in the evening and had been ill most of the night. His illness continued into the early afternoon that day and I remembered when I went to school, that morning I could hear him moaning from his illness. I remember the atmosphere in the house was just that we thought he was ill with some sort of a serious bug. My mother and

    Give People What They Want

    By Jun 12,2024

    Lately I have been hearing more and more people say that there are no jobs. I hear this so much it is making me angry. There may not be the same number of jobs that there were two years ago; however, there are still jobs. There are actually tons of jobs all over the place. But here is a brief reality check: If you want to make $70,000 a year assembling steering assemblies in an auto plant, there are not as many of these jobs anymore. If you want to work for a newspaper that is losing money, there

    Now Is the Best Opportunity You Will Ever Have

    By Jun 14,2024

    Take a moment and look over your shoulder. What do you see? If you look closer, you will realize there is something quite sinister looming there: your own mortality. You are going to die. You might die today, next week, a year from now, or 75 years from now, but you are going to die. It is entirely up to you what you do with your remaining time on this earth. What are you going to do? The terrorist attacks in India over the past few days [November 2008] got me thinking. I travel to India several times a year. In fact,

By May 31,2024

When I was in law school, I was standing in a bar one day and the most beautiful girl I’d seen around campus walked up to me and said: “I’m just wondering why you never come up to me and try to talk to me. Every other guy I see around...
