  • Do Nothing – Get Nothing: #LifeTips

    I work for a hospital that is having a mid-year health plan enrollment that requires everyone to select from a new list of plan choices.  Nothing unusual about that.  But among the posters that they have hung to try and motivate employees to be sure to enroll on time is a big one that reads “Do...

    For a long time I have wanted to write an analysis of a disease that has been underdiagnosed in the cyber world: I call it Blogger Burnout.   Information on this disorder is sadly lacking.  An in-depth search of the medical literature turned up nothing.  PubMed, with its 23 million citations, gave...

    It was back-to-school night at my daughter’s high school.  Parents gathered to hear about the upcoming curriculum our children were soon to encounter.  Each teacher had about 20 minutes to describe their class and explain their plan.  But it was this phrase from the mouth of the AP History teacher...

  • 5 Benefits of Hard Work

    We’re living in strange days.  Evil is called good; and good is called evil.

  • 12 Traits of the ENTREPRENEUR

    Be it Ben Franklin or Steve Jobs, everyone is intrigued by the entrepreneur.  Not all entrepreneurs are wildly successful.  Most, in fact, will never attain the fame and fortune of a Bill Gates or Warren Buffet.  The vast majority will not actually change the course of history like Edison or Einstein. ...
