I stole this from Barry Ritholtz

No Gravatar

I’ve been reading Barry Ritholtz’ column in the Washington Post for years.  I find his financial discussions erudite- and clearly written.  Which is how I try to communicate with you.  But, his blog today (when this was written) was of a different focus.    He stated what he has learned from writing his 30,000 blog posts.  (He has me beat by some 28,500!)   And, I agree with much of what he wrote, which I will share with you now (with my twist, of course)!

We all want our brands to be foremost in our client/customer’s eyes-  even more so for potential new adherents!  Given the plethora of information (or at least the belief that we are being overloaded with messages)- it takes more consideration of our actions (and follow-through) to meet the market’s rising expectations.

I beg to differ, Mr. Murray

No Gravatar

I read lots of magazines. One of them is Fortune.  Because I want to know more about business.  Yes, I know its point of view differs from mine.  But, I still read it.  And, the newest editorial blew me away.  Because it was so glib and so wrong.

I admit it.   I’ve chosen the wrong one.  Not just to marry- but, even to date.

And, I am sure- if you are still single- you are hoping to find the right one with whom to spend the rest of your life.  And,  being the techie that I am, I wonder why there is no formula to determine who that might be…

29 Days and still counting

No Gravatar

It’s the next to  last day of Elul.  As I wrote on the first day, when the period of self-assessment begins, we are 30 days into the 40 day period of determining how we can make our lives- and the lives of others- better.  (You can also search for Elul in the index to the left and see more of my thoughts on this “resolution-making” period.)

Brain Augmentation?

We all know that learning a language is much easier when we are younger.  Learning two languages (one would be your native one) means it will be much easier to learn a third or even a fourth (regardless if they are or are not related to one another).

Health data coming your way

So, another one of those blessings that has come about from Obamacare (there are many that are easily demonstrated)- even though this is more a byproduct than a design- is that our medical lab results are now coming to us in a  fashion that most of us can understand.  (I do believe that is the longest sentence I have ever written!)

Eat up- quickly!

I’ll bet you won’t be surprised when I say I send articles to my friends and family.  But, you may be surprised to know I send them several times a day. Of course, I am positive it’s information they ABSOLUTELY have to know and have.  Well, I did that again last week.   But, this time I only sent it to my son, because I knew it could be very important to him.
