On Faith and Data

David Katz, M.D. | Posted 03.15.2014 | Healthy Living
David Katz, M.D.

I have clung to the conviction that truth is often immediately furtive, but relentless and ultimately indomitable. Seekers of truth are patient of necessity, obliged to be disciples of time. So far, I have kept the faith that eventually enough data would rally us to common understanding and common cause.

Just 'Cause It's a Proven Fact Doesn't Mean They'll Believe It

Vicki Cobb | Posted 02.15.2014 | Science

The 'Opposition" Isn't Right... But Neither Are You

Morty Lefkoe | Posted 01.25.2014 | Healthy Living
Morty Lefkoe

I'm not at all suggesting you give up your viewpoints or your beliefs. Feel free to hold on to any point of view you want. And continue to argue and fight for them. Just don't claim that yours are true and that someone else's is false. None of them are "the truth." And it's fine to prefer one to the other.

Living as Though Your Humanity, Mortality and Divinity Really Matter

Polly Campbell

We know the beliefs and ideas we hold go a long way toward shaping our reality. Though they are merely thoughts, our behavior springs from them creating tangible results. If we think ourselves lucky, we will take on behaviors that create luck.

Important Distinctions Between Litigation and Mediation

Mark Baer | Posted 01.23.2014 | Divorce
Mark Baer

Throughout the conference, the panelists kept reiterating that what occurs in court is state specific, "locale specific," and jurist specific. In other words, results vary from judge to judge based upon the judge's biases, beliefs, assumptions and values. I think this should really scare anyone and everyone.

Ultimately the most important thing coach can do is not merely point out opportunities you can't see because of your different worldview, but help you change your own worldview.

Juliet Turalski

At your deepest core, do you ever wonder if the way you act is actually who you want to be? It's worth considering, because the beliefs you act upon not only shape your life, but also trigger the path the world takes and the consequences humanity faces.

Life Is a Game and You Make the Rules

Morty Lefkoe | Posted 10.04.2013 | Healthy Living
Morty Lefkoe

Life is a game just like all the other games. The only difference is that life is the only game that we don't realize is a game.
