I was interviewed 10 days ago for a podcast show called - Today is The Future. Click to listen to the entire conversation on Apple/Google Podcasts.
As you go about your daily blog writing or any form of writing for that matter, be sure to steer clear of these most common grammar mistakes, which are the pitfalls of so many otherwise great writers. When I come across these mistakes, I cringe to read on. Could you be turning readers away with syntax slip-ups? Read along to discover the most common grammar mistakes, and be sure you get these grammar rules right the next time you set out to write!
Letting go sucks. It’s hard. It’s painful. It’s uncomfortable. And usually, when it’s time to let something or someone go, we realize it’s something we probably should have done a while ago. We like to white knuckle as long as possible whether it be our own bad ideas or our own bad hires. But keeping people and ideas beyond their expiration date can destroy morale and the fabric of your company culture. Think about Borders Books. When Amazon came on the scene, Barnes and Noble fortified their online store. Borders meanwhile said, “Let’s keep doing what we’ve always done” which was to focus on their brick and mortar stores. Bye Bye, Borders. This has happened to countless companies. The same old people make the same old decisions not to let go, move on and evolve.
I'll be completely honest and raw in today's post. I'm publishing what I write straight away. No proof-reading for spell check or grammar check. Today's post is short and sweet. I want to share a personal life story about a failure I endured early in my life (or what I assumed was a failure but was, in fact, a turning point.)
Have you ever wondered about our educational system and why it's so tedious and outdated? I mean, it keeps teaching about the same syllabus it taught our grandparents and the people before them. School is a valuable experience for sure for about the first 5 or so years. Once you learn how to read, write and do basic math, you’ve learned 80% of what you need to go out and create your life on your terms. It’s cliche at this point to say that the most important things you learn in life you don’t learn in school. I know in my life, the most important things I’ve learned I had to figure out on my own as an adult. It might look like high school and college are separated by only a few, short, glorious summer months, but the reality is very different. The two are worlds apart! There are so many valuable things that you learn almost immediately after going through the college gates that it’s remarkable. Obvious things that you would never have even considered back in school. And still, even the college falls short about teaching valuable life skills and survival tactics which can be applied in the real world.
