Yes that's right. Apparently sitting is deadly. Kind of makes you wonder why you have to sit in a cubicle for 8+ hours a day...

What is it that drives us to work? Well according to one theory, we work because we're literally afraid of dying. Does that sound like you? Why not join in the lively discussion on Upmarket and put in your own $0.02.

I admit it, I love to know stuff. But turning that "stuff" into something useful is always a problem.

If knowing was the same as doing, my house would finally have submitted to me instead of it's constant struggle against my plans!

As I watch my daughter go through school, I realize that the subtle message they send her is, "don't stand out, just be average."  So sad.

When I build a time machine I plan on traveling back to my past self to give him this advice about networking. Then I plan on explaining how to build a time machine sooner.

Yeah I'm with you on that. Which is ironic considering I spent 8 years going into random cities, to meet random clients and talk to them. It's enough to make me think God has a sense of humor!

Did you know that simply sitting outside of a box is enough to make you more creative? It might even be better then brainstorming with your team.

Target is ditching Kindles for Nooks. And I'm cool with that. But Target justifies their choice by saying they will still "offer a full assortment" of e-readers - don't they mean "an" assortment - it's only full if you offer all the options, right? #CorporateSpeak
