Stay inclined toward intellectual curiosity. Beware of the click bait 
The bestselling novel of 1961 was Allen Drury's Advise and Consent. Millions of people read this 690-page political novel. In 2016, the big sellers were coloring books. Fifteen years ago, cable channels like TLC (the "L" stood for Learning), Bravo...

Leaps of faith are scary by definition. I was talking to a friend this morning who is up against a major decision in her life. She’s been at a good job for about 2 years now and, left to her own devices, would stay there through retirement.

Every website your organization puts up is going to reach a moment when it is obsolete, out of date or buggy. How will you know? And what will you do about it? Big organizations have this problem every day. When...

Cancelled a membership here back in March 2014. Randomly in August 2014 they started to charge me again. Getting this resolved and getting my money back have yet to happen. Dealing with their billing folks and them has been a nightmare. Don't use this gym
