Motivation by Association

Thu, 19 Aug 2010 07:26:22 PDT

Just finished reading Bounce, a great book on the science of success. The author explores all sorts of hidden or underappreciated contributing factors to success, challenging the notion that some people are just born with IT. Among other things, this...

In other cultures, time plays at a different pace, or seems unpaced, emerging like smoke from events, as opposed to being the metronome driving us forward. via underpaidgenius.com A lovely metaphor and contrast to describe the culturally constructed notions of...



Article: Lessons In How to Go Viral: Use the “Bored at Work” Network

Sat, 14 Aug 2010 05:21:34 PDT
