Enjoy the awesome stuff and make the most of it. And when the not-so-awesome stuff comes your way... allow it to happen, do your best to stay calm, deal with it, and know that it's on its way out, too.
That means when I'm planning my schedule for life, I really have 1/3 less time for everything I'd like to be spending time on. And since I'm loathe to budget a third of my life to stupid things I should be doing, I guess I'm doomed to fail. My only consolation is you probably are, too.
In my mind I was making an incredible jacket, but one mistake led to another mistake and in then end I had spent $80 on materials and 12 hours on a hideous jacket that I will never wear. As with my (many) DIY disasters in the past, I had to go through 5 stages of recovery.
It's not just entrepreneurs that can turn adversity into opportunity. All people face startup-like challenges. And we all benefit from learning and perseverance. I believe much hinges on how we exercise our free will to create a personal resiliency.
She's baaack! Hillary Rodham Clinton is on the campaign trail whether she will admit it or not! And whether conservatives like it or not, they currently have no one to run against her. Just don't tell them that.
While the brand extensions we'll be taking a look at today might have made sense to some exhausted brand development executive somewhere, they certainly weren't hits with the general public.
When I heard that a blogger wrote the new book The Perfect Score Project, I thought that maybe -- just maybe -- Debbie Stier can save one child from the miserable test taking experiences I endured during my childhood education.
In life, there will be times when dreams get shattered. When that one thing you blindly believed was going to work out doesn't. Most of us have been there, in a place outside our comfort zone. A place where we feel lost and lack the energy and self-belief needed to start again. But fear not.
Marketing always sounds easier in theory than it is in practice. Even with a solid concept, outlining the execution often proves to be as difficult as coming up an idea to begin with.
Well, life is a lie. No one can be trusted. Jimmy Kimmel revealed that the hilarious video we've all been freaking out over, in which a girl making...
We tend to think of the chain restaurant as a lumbering behemoth; an easily replicable, formulaic money machine that packs in customers no matter wher...
Career elevation is not a secret formula, but simply a way for women to leverage their relationships and their expertise to serve as equalizers in the career world.
How is it that one man created something so amazing allowing his name to live on forever? Perhaps the secret is in his failures. We all fear falling down. However, rarely will falling down kill us. Death is in not getting back up. Just ask Mickey Mouse.
Tackling monster challenges -- where failure is the expected outcome because you lack the credentials to succeed -- can be addicting. It's a win-win situation, like being the underdog in a fight: you're expected to lose, but win and you're a hero.
Failing fast is one of those ideas that seems like a great thing -- for others to do. No one likes to fail, but if you're going to fail, do it fast: 1) talk to customers, 2) test and 3) make early sales.
