The Blank Page

Imagine pulling your resume up on the computer—and deleting it. Did your brain say “ouch” at the very thought of electronically crumpling up the piece of paper that claims to know everything you’re good at and that you should be striving for?

The bird will swoop to the left and then way over to the right, without the changes in speed or direction looking forced or unnatural.

Be “The Best,” or Best at What You Do?

There comes a time when you’re cultivating a new skill, an art, a business, a talent, or just about anything where you’re standing at a distinct crossroads. One metaphoric road sign reads “Be the Very Best.” The cross street is marked with a sign that bears a resemblance to the first one, but represents something entirely different.
