You have to plan to let your mind wander.

Last week was a whopper for me.

It was a convergence of events. My kids’ school year was ending, and we had a lot of unusual events (and a lot of emotions) to manage around that. Plus, I had several different groups of family mem...

Because researchers have proven that everything takes longer than you think it does.

My college roommate pulled a lot of all-nighters.

She was (and is) a brilliant person, fun and funny.

But she could never figure out how long it would take her to write a paper.

She was a...

Thinking up new ideas is fun.  But you have to execute too.

I volunteer on the board of an animal rescue organization.

They have an amazing mission. They want to support rescue animals.

One of the two co-founders is a woman that...

When you're reaching for a goal, you're allowed to go slow.

I am on vacation with my family this week.

I used to drag work with me on vacation. Either physically, or mentally. Scroll throug...

Your aggressive deadlines are causing more harm than good.

I had a unique consulting client late last year.
