How to Create More Clarity in Your Life

Editor’s Note: This is a guest article from Kyle Eschenroeder.  Recall a moment of clarity. A moment where tension untangled as insight suddenly appeared. The tension caused by the stress of not knowing what you feel you must. The release by an apparent answer. Few things feel better.  These moments have mostly eluded me, especially over the course of the last year. As traditional sources of clarity have waned, I’ve broadened my search.  Normally, we attempt to achieve clarity through ga...

In just 100 hours, Speakly says they'll have you speaking confidently in a foreign language

You may have heard of the 10,000 Hour Rule, popularized by noted journalist and author Malcolm Gladwell. It supposes that it takes 10,000 hours of active, intense focus on a talent or skill to attain expert-level mastery. There's debate over whether that theory is actually true or not, but it's also spawned a lesser-known spinoff, the 100 Hour Rule. — Read the rest

"I think 27 years of superb reporting and commitment to The New Yorker should have been weighed against an incident that horribly embarrassed the magazine but mostly embarrassed himself."

Said Tina Brown, the former editor of The New Yorker, quoted in "The Undoing of Jeffrey Toobin How a leading man of legal journalism lost his sweetest gig" (NYT).  Malcolm Gladwell, an important New Yorker writer, said: "I read the Condé Nast news release, and I was puzzled because I couldn’t find any intellectual justification for what they were doing. They just assumed he had done something terrible, but never told us what the terrible thing was. And my only feeling — the only way I could ex...

Kind by nature: Have faith in humanity

Optimism is what runs the world, and cynicism only serves as an excuse for the lazy. Evil is not inherent to our nature. We have achieved so much because we are friendly and decent. The radical thinker Rutger Bregman paints a new, more beautiful portrait of humanity.Try standing in front of the mirror and remember the worst things ever done – by you personally, and by Homo sapiens as a whole. And smile, because history shows that we are doing much better than you think. This subversive idea belo...

The Moral Calculus of COVID-19

You may have heard that MSNBC host Rachel Maddow has been quarantining at home following close contact with a person who had tested positive for COVID-19. You may have also heard that last night, Maddow returned to her show (still filming from home) to reveal that this person was her partner of 20+ years, artist/photographer Susan Mikula.

5 Ways for Fast-Paced Leaders to Capture Ideas

With only so many hours in the day, setting aside time to ideate doesn’t work for me. I have plenty of ideas that I think are amazing. I get a taste of them in those moments between tasks, driving to appointments, or in conversation with a trusted colleague. But they don’t do any good unless I get them out of my head and into reality. As a small business owner that likes the fast pace and fun of bouncing from project to project, it is challenging to set aside time for a process that formalizes m...

Turning Points and Milestones of Growth-Fostering Relationships

Every person who intends to exert leadership in his personal life, in business or any other vocation—and even in the family--will intentionally focus on personal growth. Research has shown us that effective business leadership growth inevitably requires mentors. Though true, that notion is plainly inadequate. The fact is that all living and all development takes place only with relationships . To put it still more directly, we experience growth because of our connections to other people. I can ...

Google Introduces 6-Month Career Certificates, Threatening to Disrupt Higher Education with “the Equivalent of a Four-Year Degree”

I used to make a point of asking every college-applying teenager I encountered why they wanted to go to college in the first place. Few had a ready answer; most, after a deer-in-the-headlights moment, said they wanted to be able to get a job — and in a tone implying it was too obvious to require articulation. But if one's goal is simply employment, doesn't it seem a bit excessive to move across the state, country, or world, spend four years taking tests and writing papers on a grab-bag of subje...

Bill Maher, Who Said the N-Word on TV, Decries ‘Cancel Culture’

Bill Maher, the longtime political satirist and host of HBO’s Real Time, harbors an Ahab-like obsession with “cancel culture”—the theory that prominent “politically incorrect” (to borrow his catchphrase) folks are being pushed out of their jobs by bad-faith online mobs. This likely stems from the time when, six days after the 9/11 attacks, Maher eventually had his show Politically Incorrect canceled by Sinclair after calling the terrorists involved “not cowardly” for “staying in the airplane whe...

Schools can and must reopen for minority students and their families: Cecilia Iglesias

Gov. Gavin Newsom dealt California’s low-income and minority families a blow when he announced that nearly all the state’s schools won’t reopen their doors this fall due to COVID-19. The lack of in-person schooling disproportionately hurts the most vulnerable who lack the means for distance learning and can’t make interim educational arrangements. Adding insult to this injury, a close look at the evidence suggests that schools can indeed reopen safely. Decades of research demonstrate the importa...
