"The 'outcome' of any particular endeavor is just another middle chapter, just another starting point for something else. There’s nothing damning about the middle of any story -- and unless you’re dead -- you’re in the middle."

We need to eliminate destructive beliefs like "girls are bad at math."
Time to embrace the growth mindset instead.
In all my time as a substitute teacher for elementary school, perhaps nothing out of the mouths of babes disappointed me as much as this: “But Mr. Greg, girls aren’t good at math like boys are.” From one of my favorite students no less. It was disheartening to hear. At such a young age, abilities in subjects like [...]

Hilarious example of correlation != causation

...wait a minute. Are you telling me that ~800 people died from being tangled in their bed sheets? That's more than half the number of people who drown in natural water!

Why do haters have to hate? In this new article, I explore why negative comments stick out like a sore thumb, and why the Internet turns so many people into assholes.

Whenever anyone—young and old alike—steps up to the counter, Weaver waves a blue-and-white pompom and chirps "Hi everybody, welcome to Arby's!"

That. Is. Adorable.

Systems for success, that has been a hallmark of my business life for 30 years. I call a certain amount of people, and I will get a certain amount of responses. I send out a certain amount of marcomm materials, I will get a certain amount of results.

With my book writing this year about how to reinvent your life, I focus on systems. Those absolutely make it easier to accomplish my intentions.

"Beethoven kept his creative promises by strategically using his time to incubate ideas. His favorite method of thinking things through? Long, solitary walks through the forested valleys of Vienna."
Creativity does not rest on eureka moments — it is a process, designed to consistently bring abstract ideas into the tangible world. For creatives, this emphasizes the importance of routines.

You don't need to be a cabin dwelling novelist to get the cognitive benefits of writing reguarly!
What are the benefits of writing for non-writers? Can the average Joe see cognitive benefits from putting their thoughts down on paper?

So true! Writing has been a sort of therapy for me. I have like 5 personal blogs, each serving its own purpose, some of them top-secret :D 
Writing is not the only medium  that does that, though. For example, Edvard Munch (the guy who painted the "Scream"), would paint things that bothered him. That's again, thought manifested in paint. :)

Calvin: Sometimes when I'm talking, my words can't keep up with my thoughts. I wonder why we can think faster than we speak?

Hobbes: Probably so we can think twice.
