8 Benefits of Napping: Why You Need to Nap Everday I’ve detailed elsewhere how hard I worked in law school. But there was another secret to my success that I haven’t mentioned yet: the nap. In law school, I rented a carrel where I kept my books and studied in-between classes.

To Get Honest Feedback, Leaders Need to Ask - Jim Kouzes , and Barry Posner by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner | 8:00 AM February 27, 2014 “The only way to discover your strengths,” wrote Peter Drucker, “is through feedback analysis.” No senior leader would dispute this as a logical matter.

At least that’s what we’ve discovered in our research.

Start a Debt Reduction Plan Since I’ve graduated law school, I’ve been taking a look at the debt Kate and I have accumulated during our time in school. And it isn’t pretty. I hate debt. I hate the feeling of owing another person money. I hate thinking, “Oh good, I have x amount in savings!” Alan Watts Brings Eastern Wisdom to American TV Viewers in 1959 (Complete Episodes) Nearly forty years after his death, the words of Alan Watts still generate excitement. Fans trade them, in the form of texts, radio broadcasts, recorded talks, and television programs, both online and off. The British-born interpreter and popularizer of East Asian Buddhist thought generated most of his media in the San Francisco of the 1950s and 1960s, and his televised lectures, produced for local public station KQED, must have offered many a San Franciscan their very first glimpse of Zen. Now that episodes of his series Eastern Wisdom and Modern Life have made it to YouTube (season one, season two), you can see for yourself that Watts’ then-cutting-edge delivery of this ancient wisdom remains entertaining, informative, and striking in its clarity.
3 Ways to Encourage Employees to Give You More Feedback When you're the boss, bad news, unpleasant as it is, can be incredibly valuable... and incredibly hard to come by. Without knowing what's going wrong in your business, you can't fix things, but employees are generally hesitant to be the bearers of bad news.

Rip Off the Band-Aid! When I was a kid and had a loose tooth, my intimidating grandmother would always ask me if I’d like to have it removed using her patented old school technique. This method involved tying one end of a string to the tooth, the other end to a doorknob, and then slamming the door shut, thus ripping out the tooth with one fell swoop. As an eight-year-old I found this idea pretty terrifying. Actually, as an adult it still kind of gives me the heebie jeebies. But I understand her reasoning—instead of getting a little dull pain every day for a week from jiggling the tooth around, just get it over with and out of your mouth. A sharp, momentary pain or a dull, protracted one.
