It's easy for me to be transparent about who I am these days because I stopped experiencing the need to pretend or to live up to others' expectations a long time ago. Indeed, it's a big relief to be able to be an open book.
Ladies, you must never think of yourself as an overstock. Yes, you may look around and it seems that there are so many single women and few single men available. However, you should never lower your standards in hopes of getting married quicker.
I see a growing number of corporations, non-profits, governments and start-up companies asking themselves the hard questions about how to balance their short-term business issues with long-term institutional values, even when this does not yield easy answers.
What gives a person's life meaning is unique to every individual. At one point or another, most of us find ourselves asking if we are truly living a life that is meaningful to us. In other words, are we really living the life we are meant to lead?
I believe that what happened at Penn State runs deep in American culture, and similar breaches will occur until America creates a culture where the value of doing the right thing is ingrained within education and business.

I'm inviting you to play a fabulous game I've devised. The rules are simple. I'm going to give you an imaginary shovel. And then I am going to present to you an imaginary table, upon which I'm going to place different sets of imaginary things, one of which you must smash with said shovel.

This is a question that all parents ask themselves... constantly. There are no easy answers and, realistically, there is probably not one single answer. The important thing for parents is to at least ask and try to answer the question for their own family.
Business strategy that focuses exclusively on the head while ignoring the heart won't work, for it becomes dry and lacks the motivating power to inspire people to dream up amazing ideas and make them happen.
I've learned not to think there's always a right and wrong course of action immediately evident. It can be important to observe and explore one's thoughts and feelings around a moral decision -- however big or small.
How many people do you know who are extremists on either side? My guess is not many. Yet these are the types of conversations that dominate politics and the media today. They take away from the truth and heart of human matters while fanning flames of antagonism and disunity.
Craig and I have a steadfast rule -- no bragging to anyone except each other or the grandparents. Basically, our rule means that we keep our mouths shut in public and then we talk in bed about how our kids are better than anyone else's kids in the whole entire world.
