I Was Going to Write a Book, But Then I Got…Distracted

There's a popular joke which can be used right at the moment when someone is aiming at something, say, a dart at a dartboard. As they're lining up their shot, drop in with a, "Nice aim, but I'd be more worried about the people standing beside you than the board." Watch as laughter ensues! (unless …

You’ve Got to Risk It to Get the Biscuit

Would you work for free? Ever since we are born it is made clear that with work comes reward. When you did the dishes or cleaned your room, you received praise (or better yet, an allowance) from your parents. When you did well on a test or well on the course, you got recognition in …

Failure is the New Black

One, two, three. One, two, three.  The dancers glide across the floor as if floating on air. One, two, three. One, two, three.
