Every child is born an artist. The problem is how to remain one as we grow up. – Pablo Picasso I’ve always loved this quote.  But I’ve sometimes struggled to really put my finger on why. Initially I suppose I liked it because it conjured for me an image of a joyfully uninhibited child artist wandering freely from one thought to another, seeing infinite possibilities in her work and exhibiting a freedom that few adults seem to have the luxury to indulge. Now however, I find myself re-reading this quote

Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about “fit”. Not “fit” like how well my clothes fit, though as the holidays near with their never-ending opportunities for overindulgence I am somewhat obsessed by that type of fit too. Today however, I’m referring to finding the right fit in an environment. Like, for instance a college environment. My first born is in the midst of the college application process. If you’ve had the dubious distinction of enduring this unique and insidious form of torture sometime in the last few years then you

  We all get stuck from time to time. We get stuck in jobs we hate, in relationships we’ve outgrown, in routines that bore us and in habits we know we should break. The list goes on.

She calls sitting “the smoking of our generation.” In this short video Nilofer suggests a simple idea that just might have a big impact on your life and health: Next time you have a one-on-one meeting, make it into a “walking meeting” – the fresh air will help fresh ideas flow. This short talk really resonated with me – I

“The Best Kept Secret in Networking” Looking for a new job? Maybe you need some good advice. If so, who will you call? Most of us naturally choose a good friend, someone with whom we feel close. But is that really the best person to reach out to?   Interestingly, research shows that tapping into good friends is probably not the most effective way to network. According to a well-known sociology study, people are 58% more likely to get a new job from a weaker connection than they are from
