My friend and mentor Paul Tomes has a lot of great things to say about leadership and development...including this!
 
Approachability and accessibility. Get either wrong and you'll be slamming a door in someone's face.
#leadership   #leadershipdevelopment  
Approachability and accessibility - even with modern offices lacking physical doors, your actions can have the same effect as slamming one in their face.

Best book on this topic I have found is the Army Leadership Manual. One thing I think I nailed over the years was management and leadership... and that book was a tremendous help (and years of practice of course). Recommend. Good article.

I don't think I was close enough to even know this happened, heh.

That is an excellent story, and I've done it too many times. The sad (awesome) part is: It doesn't get any better. The 1:30AM story happens often. Too bad I'm not a rich actor and can afford to not work or something ;P

The snark is strong with this one. Although you should know that penicillin is an antibiotic, and wouldn't help with "minor viral infections" as you imply.

Well, there is a downside to being a caveman... we still yearn for fat and sugar cuz, we are still cave men...
http://lifehacker.com/5934802/science-explains-why-we-overeat-and-how-to-stop-it

We are largely still, hunter-gathers. It was only an eye-blink ago that a dramatic change happened. It will be some time before we shrug off that heritage.

And... yes, hunter-gathers will empty a cupcake tree in a heartbeat. They do already. That tribe is called modern man. We not have access to cupcake trees! And thus... we are all overweight and obese. The ingenious point being made by the Paleo Gurus is "Hey, I know! Let's not eat the cupcakes from that tree" cuz, the way are currently designed, though we desire them, we are not designed to healthfully eat them. One day of total bliss? Sure. But in our society, the cupcakes keep growing back. :)

mmm ... cupcakes.

Turns out my friend Eric wrote this, and I never knew until yesterday.

If you have about an hour and want to enjoy a deeply creepy read that could be real (but probably isn't), it's worth your time.

Schadenfreude delight: Clear Channel pruning lots of conservative radio shows to save money to pay back massive debts to Bain Capital.

"Bain Capital and Thomas H. Lee Partners, two private-equity firms, finalized their $26.7 billion purchase of Clear Channel in July, 2008, loading the company with debt."

The federal government bond market as it is now is not capitalism.  In capitalism, both sides of the transaction act of their own free accord without the threat of force and without fraud.  In the bond market, the bonds are paid off at the point of a gun through taxing people (sometimes yet unborn) who didn't agree to be part of the transaction.  The key ingredient in capitalism is freedom and without that you don't have capitalism.

What the USA has is a mixed economy.

Robert Scoble calls my content "internet noise." His wife is a fan of mine, though, and disagrees.

I guess it's true: when one man's post really get another's wife going, there'll be trouble.

I wonder if Scoble of all people misses the irony of calling Takei's content "noise. "
