A Good Friend's Job Search - 08/24/09 11:17 AM
A very good friend of mine is out of work. He has been seeking a job for about 5 months (note: I am writing this blog entry with his permission) The process, as you might expect, is difficult, sometimes humiliating and frustrating. And yet, my friend “soldiers on” treating his job search as a business to which he devotes 5 or 6 10-hour days a week. Needless to say I hope my friend finds a job quickly. He is doing all the right things. It is just that he is fighting a very difficult economy. This economy is causing us all (3 comments)
Sheer Absurdity - 08/17/09 01:24 PM
One of our most fascinating discoveries about successful people is that sometimes the only point of differentiation between them and others is that the succeeders stopped deliberating and took action in the pursuit of something about which they felt strongly.

Oftentimes the success story is just a person who said to himself/herself: "I am tired of thinking about it, I am going to JUST DO IT." I am not suggesting impulsive conduct. (52 comments)

You need to immediately climb back on the horse so that the anxiety caused by the fall does not fester, and so that you erase from your mind as quickly as possible the fear of another fall. That all makes sense of course. But what happens when there is no horse to climb back on to? A good friend of mine has been suffering through the current (0 comments)
Why Persistence is all Powerful - 08/04/09 12:56 PM
I have had the good fortune to become friendly with many highly successful individuals: world-class athletes and entertainers, national politicians, CEO’s of major corporations and very wealthy entrepreneurs. The one predominant, common-thread characteristic they all share is incredible staying power. These are folks who will just never quit on a goal that they set for themselves. I mean NEVER. Everybody of course says that persistence is critical to success. What I have been thinking about lately is why persistence and tenacity actually produce success. Here are my reasons: 1) The longer you work at something, the better you get at it. (2 comments)
