Someone sent me an article about a company that purposely made some decisions they knew would make them less profitable. The goal was to impact the environment in a more sustainable way, and the author wrote about the various ways to define success. The person who sent me the article asked what I thought and […]

I carry around a super slim wallet and I owe that in part to my smartphone, to a trip I made to Europe, and to my good friends Elliot & Joanne. There are many good things I learned from my dad. But, the fact that my dad’s wallet has always been one of those busting-at-the-seams […]

Last year I wrote about my Fitbit, which I had become very attached to. The impact the Fitbit had on me was a surprise: I went from being someone who already exercised a lot, to someone who exercised even more. A few months ago, I lost my Fitbit. It was one of those frustrating things […]

Explaining “Be Proactive,” the first of Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Covey wrote about pushing the pause button between stimulus and response, in order to respond in a way guided by how you want to live your life, rather than reacting in a way not aligned with your values and guiding principles […]

When I say “Be a Leader” (the third of the Six Simple Rules for a Better Life), the leadership I am talking about is not being a CEO of a company, or being the president of a country. What I am talking about is volunteering at home, at work, and in your community; stepping up […]

I love reading. And I love books. I haven’t switched over to e-books yet, and I’m not sure if I will. Over the years, I’ve kept bookshelves full of the books I read. There were three reasons why I collected books: I liked how they looked on my bookshelves. I wanted to be able to […]
