The Two Most Important Ingredients of Success

The day after September 11th, I was watching television when an official came on air to comment about the economic crisis that was about to unfold when the stock market opened. “We know that when the market opens it is going to be very bad. We also know that some of the greatest fortunes in a generation will be made over the next few weeks by people who have faith in our economy.” Over the next few years, I started reading all sorts of stories in financial publications about various people who h...

You Need to Sell, Sell, Sell

--> A strange misconception among many people, especially professionals, is that there is something wrong with selling. When I talk about selling, I am referring to any number of sales activities: Selling yourself in an interview Selling yourself in a cover letter to an employer Selling yourself to a client Selling yourself to any other person Packaging yourself in a ”sellable” way In every single interaction we have with others, we are selling. The more you sell, the better you will do in you...

A Beginner’s Guide to the Underappreciated Pencil

Editor’s note: This is a guest article from TJ Cosgrove. For most people, the humble pencil is a writing utensil that was once familiar, but is now largely absent from their everyday life. When you were a kid, you used a #2 pencil to fill out the answer sheet bubbles on standardized tests. Maybe you kept using the mechanical kind to do math in college. But as an adult, unless you’re a craftsman making marks on lumber or drywall, you may not use pencils at all, having dropped them in favor ...

The College Admissions Scandal Is Peak White Privilege — & It's Nothing New

I went to one of the top public high schools in Washington State — and most of the students were rich and white. My family was middle-class; my mother is an immigrant, my father was raised in poverty, and neither inherited wealth. And though I did grow up with economic privileges that I don’t seek to deny, the degree of wealth that surrounded me in my youth baffled me. Many of the families in my community had boats (some even private planes) and summer homes. If one of my classmates received a ...

You Always Need a Backup Plan

--> Being in the asphalt business in Detroit taught me very early on that things frequently go wrong. In fact, things go wrong so frequently, it is difficult to believe: Pumps break. Tanks break. Trucks break. People get injured. Employees do not show up to work. It rains. The police give you a hard time for the condition of your equipment. People do not pay you for the work you have done for them. Suppliers go out of business. Customers get incredibly angry with you. Accidents occur, and mater...

MAC & Benefit Just Made It So Easy To Support Planned Parenthood

Concentrate on the Positive, Not the Negative

--> The most successful people concentrate almost exclusively on the positive and not the negative. In fact, the negative hardly influences them at all. You need to see the world and the people in it as happy, prosperous, and good. Like attracts like. If you look for the negative, then negativity is what you will see. If you look for the positive, then positivity is what you will see. I had an interesting discussion recently with Dr. Surendra Pokharna, an Indian physicist, as we toured some Jain...

Tammy Baldwin On The Next Battle For LGBTQ+ Rights

It’s 2019 and, in more than half of the states in the United States, it remains legal to discriminate against members of the LGBTQ+ community in the workplace, in housing, in public spaces, and many other areas. The absence of a federal anti-discrimination law has a deep impact in the everyday lives of this community: Research shows nearly two-thirds of LGBTQ+ people in the U.S. have experienced discrimination based on their gender identity or sexual orientation.Sen. Tammy Baldwin hopes to chan...

Sympathy, Morale, and the Importance of Being Organized

In every job I have ever had, I have been happy for the most part. When I was an attorney, for example, I liked many aspects of being an attorney. When I worked in the asphalt business, I loved many aspects of that business. Most people are able to find some level of enjoyment in every job that they do. What is interesting, though, is that in every job I ever had, there were always people around me who were more than happy to stop by my office and go out to lunch with me, just to give me the ...

How Puerto Rico Became The Latest Battleground For Abortion Rights

Ana* says she always dreamed of being a mother. But, when she got pregnant at 21 while still in college, she knew it was not the right time to become a parent. “I simply didn’t want to bring a child into the world without me being ready to offer them everything they deserve,” Ana, now 25, told Refinery29. Immediately after discovering she was pregnant, she went to her health provider in the metro area of Puerto Rico to ask for an abortion. They scheduled her appointment for two weeks later and ...

The Importance of Productivity, Focus, and Measurement

--> When I was in school, I would study at least a couple of hours each day in the library. While there, I noticed that the best students were always very focused. They were not distracted like poorer students were. A poor student looks around and looks up frequently. The poor students try to start conversations, make jokes, and laugh at things going on in the library. When I was studying with the best students, I could feel their energy and focus. They blocked out external stimuli and their stu...
