    Mentors, Attachment Disorders, and Your Career

    By Oct 22,2018

    When I was 15 years old, I spent a year living with my family in Bangkok, Thailand. We lived in a small apartment tower with about twelve other families. One day, I went down to the lobby of the apartment before going to school and there was a small puppy that had come in off the street. I did not know exactly where the puppy came from, but I did recognize that the guards in the building were not being all that nice to the puppy.  The puppy was obviously a street dog, and it appeared to be alone, without Post Footer automatically generated by...

    Look at Your Job (or the Job You Are Seeking) from Your Employer’s Point of View

    By Oct 19,2018

    One of the highest performing dental offices in Australia is that of Patty Lund, who takes his job very seriously. Some years ago, Dr. Lund studied the dental market and identified what people considered to be the three worst things about going to the dentist. These were pain, smell, and waiting time. After identifying these three things, Dr. Lund and his dental hygienists did everything in their power to ensure people were extremely comfortable when getting dental work done. His practice included making muffins and cookies for patients, which...

    You Need to Delay Gratification

    By Oct 15,2018

    When I was around 14 years old, I moved in with my father after living with my mother for my entire childhood. Although I was a good student in elementary school, once I got into middle school there were lots of fun things to do.

    How to Talk about Other Interviews in Your Interviews

    By Sep 26,2018

    One of the questions I receive quite often from people I work with is whether or not they should talk about other interviews while they are interviewing with a potential employer. Let me emphasize one thing: This is one of the more important questions you will ever be asked in an interview. Regardless of your qualifications, how you respond to this question will have a direct bearing on whether or not you receive an offer from the employer. Be very careful how you answer it. At the outset, it’s important to point out you don’t have...

    Seek Substance and Not Style

    By Oct 03,2018

    In analyzing her success and downfall, a recent article about Lindsay Lohan in Vanity Fair discussed how she really was a great actress but put herself into competition with those much lesser than herself in the Los Angeles social scene: “She became infatuated with being in the press all the time like a Paris Hilton or a Kim Kardashian. It was like she forgot she actually had talent.” “Lindsay was on the A-list and it’s like she was fighting to get onto the D-list,” said the young woman. What is so amazing about the downfall of Lohan...

By Oct 17,2018

I believe that one of the most powerful things in the universe is the mind. Through our minds we can change the world. Skyscrapers, rocket ships, submarines–everything that exists has been conceived in the minds of men and women. If you think about...
