I’m never going to stop wanting to be thinner and chasing it. But I’m OK with that, says Marisa MeltzerEvery morning I have the slightly morbid habit of reading the New York Times obituary section.

Be a better leader: Knowing the dangers of ‘yes men’

One of the potential dangers of being a successful leader is that the people around you stop challenging your decisions, no matter how bad or wrong they may be.Asserting dominance and establishing negative consequences for those who challenge your authority (such as firing or reprimanding offenders) only exacerbates the problem and adds to the toxic culture of unchecked power.Astronaut Garrett Reisman argues that while it's natural to want to be told that you're smart and right, it's important t...
