№ 218. "There may be flowing water on Mars. But is there intelligent life on Earth?"

"New findings from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) provide the strongest evidence yet that liquid water flows intermittently on present-day Mars."


Meanwhile, on Earth.... We are still debating, doing very little that is aggressive and significant enough to reverse climate change and continuing blithely with our irresponsibility---daily. I am already old enough so I have only a few more decades left. But I do fear for the next generations. What will they inherit from our shortsighted and selfish mess of a world?

№ 218. An MBA Can't Help in Your Career?!

"During meetings, my fellow managers who have MBAs often talk, if not brag about what they know about management buzzwords and theories. When I hear them bragging and counter-bragging with one another, I feel belittled as I can’t contribute much during our discussions. I hesitate to give my two cents’ worth as I don’t want to telegraph my ignorance.

№ 215. Daily Habits of Successful People

My T.R.A.N.S.C.R.I.P.T. / notes. Killing time and trying to be quasi-productive.

Aristotle said that 95% of what we do is the result of habits. Make good habits your masters.

№ 214. A Day in the Life

"I’ve always told myself to treat it like a 9-to-5 job. You just go do it. It doesn’t matter whether you’re feeling good that day. I don’t think writers or artists can afford to have a “creative temperament” or to wait for inspiration to descend. You have to simply sit there and make yourself do it. And over the years that’s a discipline I really developed. I can sit down at my desk every day and do my work, never give myself permission not to do it. Once your mind understands that it has no excuses, it’s remarkable how it begins to play along." (Harvard Business Review)
