Though we all know we should be saving for the future, knowing WHERE to invest money is a challenge for many of us -- which is why this super simple flowchart rocks.

No. Burnout is caused when you repeatedly make large amounts of sacrifice and or effort into high-risk problems that fail. It's the result of a negative prediction error in the nucleus accumbens. You effectively condition your brain to associate work with failure.

This is a really interesting insight, and worth keeping in mind.
I remember reading this published insight[1] from Marissa Mayer a few months ago: Burnout is caused by resentment.

As long as Russia is honestly reporting back to us when they discover evidence of corruption here, I can't see that as a bad thing. Everyone knows that countries are spying on one another. Might as well get something good out of it.

Whoa, I thought "you" was originally formal singular. But this rant fascinates me!

Next time someone complains about singular "they" I'll point them to this 17th century rant against singular "you"

Room wasn't particularly noteworthy. Smelled faintly of cigarette smoke. Was not informed there is a complimentary breakfast, and no mention of it in the room... But there is one. Staff is friendly.

Parking is $30/night for guests. Somewhat peeved to find that out upon arrival instead of before I made the reservation. Otherwise, very friendly and professional staff. Room was quite clean and up to date.
