My favorite part of being an author is writing. A close second is finding new books in my mailbox. This fall, there's an unusually exciting crop of big idea and business books about human behavior, innovation and entrepreneurship, and the fundamental questions of success, meaning, and happiness in work and life.
Your wisdom will bring you all kinds of awesome solutions if you let it. It's just that if you're beating your head against the wall to find a solution, it helps to know that beating your head against the wall isn't a method that is known to bring brilliant solutions.
In these troubled times, where political leadership is shaken, a new class of French politicians should arise and seize the opportunity to improve the state of their country and its global positioning.
For my last installment in this three-part move-away series, I am going to explore the potential risks that you may face when you decide to litigate a move-away motion in court.

While there is no known cure for a psychological disorder, there are a few medications that can assist to subdue the illness so the victims are not ...
For all too long I have pondered the question, "What is my purpose?" I have often raised my eyes toward Heaven and asked God, "What is it you want me to do?" I have even had the audacity to scream at the great above.
Vladimir Putin appears steadfast in his determination to reclaim large sections of Ukraine -- in particular its industrial heartland -- through intimidation and violence, while denying any but humanitarian involvement there. This raises the question: Is Putin psychotic?
When I comes right down to it, like many wordsmiths, I write simply because (as grammatically incorrect as it sounds) I "can't not write." What a lovely addiction by which I am plagued.
The truth is: We're all afraid. We've all had moments like mine on the floor. And it's those moments where terror can become the sandbox for astronomical transformation.
I can go on forever about how exercise has physically challenged and changed me. But above all, spiritually, this has been a lesson of evolving, facing my fears and feeling deserving to (as my sister says) be proud of and own the body that houses my soul, that takes you to the next day, the next dimension.
By taking just a few moments to refrain from cramming one more thing on your device before a meeting, you could have a much more productive meeting that adds so much more value than the things you would have done on your device.
