On Being a Student
I had dinner in January with my friend, Adrian, an actor in NY. He said 2015 was his year to be a student of something. We talked about how in both our careers we're expected to know a lot, compete for business, perform at a high level, and mentor others. He thinks, and I agree, that it's also important for us to be lifelong learners. PR people, especially, need to pay attention to this. We are good at our jobs because we're all ...

So cool!
Here's something you don't see every day: A glimpse at the internal structure of a rather large (and rather occupied) wasp nest. Put down the flamethrower and check it out. Trust us on this one, you'll want to see this.

Walking is good for us for many reasons, but I favor it when I need to think out a problem or brainstorm some new ideas. 
We've seen time and time again how walking can boost creativity and mood. The above quote, from Ferris Jabr at the New Yorker, sums up all the studies we've seen so far in a pretty simple way.

On Being a Teacher 
Yesterday I wrote about my desire to, in some way, feel like a student ... to find something new I wanted to learn, and feel excited and challenged about discovering new things I'm capable of doing, or might fail miserably at. Today, I want to write about what it feels like to teach. Teaching is one of the many things I do in my career, and I am grateful for the opportunity to walk the hallowed halls of Georgetown University, workin...

How are you perceived? 
One of my favorite things about teaching personal branding is when I get to drop the bomb that when it comes to your personal brand, what YOU think doesn't matter. What other people think matters a whole lot. Why? A personal brand is a perception or emotion maintained by someone other than you that describes your outstanding qualities and influences that person's relationship with you. Your brand exists on the foundation of a set ...

It took me months to be able to focus on my breathing for 15-30 minutes a day, but once I created this habit I was able to focus better on work, and be calmer and more thoughtful in friendships and relationships.

Last week we discovered that mindfulness is more than just a buzzword.

It's no secret I'm a HUGE fan of how Stephen King talks about writing.  My lovely friend +Jessica Lahey interviewed him about how he teaches writing.  Enjoy!
Looking back on his days in front of a high school classroom, the acclaimed writer shares his views on grammar and explains why discovering great literature is like losing one's virginity.

Great advice from Beth Comstock about travel and thinking.
Travel is a big part of most business jobs and doing travel right should be invaluable.
