  • The Importance of Taking Risks in Your Career

    Some people are content to let their careers develop in a meandering fashion, receiving promotions when they are due rather than asking for them, or even silently accepting that they may simply be stuck in the same dead-end job until the day they retire (or die of utter boredom). At the other...

  • Not Everyone Gets an A+

    I was an A+ student throughout K-12, so it was a real shocker when I got to my first semester at university and ended up on academic probation with a D average.

  • There is no Hidden Secret to Success

    One thing that I've found, time and time again, is that there is no hidden "secret" to achieving what you want. The path is simple and it is plain to see. Directly in front of you, maybe underneath the piles of clutter and junk, is your destiny, the one in which you rise up and reach all of...

  • Follow the Path and Go Straight to your Destination

    I'm re-reading some of my favorite books from Paulo Coehlo: this time it's his first novel, "The Pilgrim", which is about his road through the pilgrimage route of Santiago de Compostela.
