The 2K11 24/7 CCLII: When the Student Becomes the Master

Recently I found myself speaking on an Intern Alumni Panel for work, where four of us spoke to new, fresh-faced interns about our experiences and advice. I strongly believe that we should always strive to pass knowledge on to others. It’s impossible for one person to know everything, but if we combine our knowledge […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCLI: It’s Easier to Ask Forgiveness than Permission

Except when it comes to Sarah (and that’s primarily because I know that it would cause FAR more trouble), I rather ask forgiveness for my actions than permission. Not that you’re being impolite about things or doing something that you know you’re going to regret — it’s just that much of the time, you […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCXLIX: FOMO

If you were to ask Sarah, she could confirm for you that despite the boundless mass that is my ego, there ARE things that I absolutely SUCK at. And one of those things is SLEEPING. I’ll admit it — I’m a bit of a workaholic. I’m up at all hours of night scribbling […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCXLVIII: Reaction Distraction!

The 2K11 24/7 CCXLVII: Resume Surgery

The 2K11 24/7 CCXLVI: Make a Change!!!

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” –Albert Einstein, (attributed)US (German-born) physicist (1879 – 1955) The reason why we get into ruts and never seem to clear all the junk off of our desk and out of our heads is because we’re stubborn. We […]

The 2K11 24/7 CCXLIV: Skillz

We are not created equal. I think this is something we can all readily appreciate and agree to. We are not RAISED equal. Again, we inherently know this — we all have different parents, and for better or worse, whether they were absent or present, we all had experiences growing up that are very […]
