    Allow People around You to Feel and Believe Whatever They Want

    By Sep 19,2019

    When I was about nine years old, I was driving down the street with a relative and we saw a huge, pale man who was walking down the side of the road flipping off cars and screaming at them. The man didn’t have a shirt on and seemed extremely angry. He was wearing dirty jeans and had long hair that was sweaty. The man was large, probably at least 6′ 4″ and quite heavy. It was a terrifying sight because the man’s movements were exaggerated and he seemed to be in a lot of pain. My relative saw this man, slowed down, pulled...

    Socrates and Your Job Search

    By Aug 07,2019

    Several years ago, we were launching a newsletter for law schools. One of our employees, who was working on the project, decided that the title of the newsletter should be, “The Signal.” He was very enthusiastic about this particular title. In fact, I had never seen him so enthusiastic about anything.

    Happy Meals and Bonuses

    By Aug 23,2019

    In 1979, when McDonald’s introduced the Happy Meal, I, along with every other kid, was excited to go to McDonald’s all of a sudden. I was 9 years old back then and the McDonald’s on Jefferson Avenue in Detroit, which had formerly been an “okay” place to go for French fries suddenly became the place–somewhere I wanted to go. It had very little to do with the food. I was most interested in the prize that would be in the Happy Meal. I even remember that McDonald’s used to advertise on television the different...

    Never Have Secrets

    By Sep 18,2019

    I am going to share with you a story I have been warned I could go to jail for repeating. More than a decade ago, my ex-wife was working for one of the most powerful men in the entertainment industry and spent most of her time on his Beverly Hills estate. She worked on the man’s property and was in the process of redoing the property’s landscape architecture. During the day, she would come and go, walk the property, and sometimes work inside the house. Teams of security guards and other people were on the property at all times and
