Dr. Carl Jung - Deep in Contemplation.

Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes. ” – Carl Jung

In 1957, Carl Gustav Jung sat down to write his life story in a work that would later be known as “Memories, Dreams and Reflections.”  If you have time over the course of the next year to read this book, I highly recommend it as it gives a look inside the mind of a man who many of us can relate to and will be able to learn from for many years to come. It’s quite amazing that a man who grew up in such a different time might find commonality in people reading his memoirs in 2009. It makes one think, just how will you be remembered and what will your life story, your reflections consist of?  How will the world remember, you? Read more…

When the Art of Text post went up a few months ago, I hadn’t realized that there was a deeper, underlying issue that was bubbling up beneath the surface. While texting is certainly “newer” technology, it was really the result of over a decades worth of communication that was slowly moving towards a new direction.  What may surprise many is that it was the corporate world in the 90s that brought computers into our homes. While kids had Nintendo and Sega, purchasing a $2,000 plus computer was a luxury that only the adults could afford. Read more…

In the days of William Wallace, courtship was a much more difficult task.  In addition to keeping up with all of the latest Twitter feeds on the most up-to-date chivalrous tactics, one must also had known how to ride a horse, handle a sword, speak several different languages, and lead a revolutionary army against an imposing neighboring government! Thankfully, over the centuries, many of these tactics have fallen by the wayside, however a few still remain. Read more…

The night would be remembered forever…

We had spent hours setting up the basement of our off campus housing in the fall semester of 2001. After throwing parties for months now,  it was now an art – we knew all the key components for a ridiculous night – a DJ, black lights, beer pong tables set upstairs surrounded with couches, trash cans full of the cheapest beer you can find within 20 miles of College Park, Maryland, and depending on who you knew, a smorgasbord of substances that might leave you face down in bed until 4pm the next day.

All Glory Is Fleeting, Part II – An Exclusive Interview with Robert Greene

(Editorial Note: Be sure to read Part I of this interview)

Ethan Bishop:  In Lesson 7 – Know Your Environment from the Inside – Out; Connection; you state that to succeed in life and business, you must first connect with your audience and build outwards instead of starting with your idea and finding your audience. That seems like obvious advice yet so many organizations fail at this simple concept. What are some ways that leaders can keep themselves “connected” with the audience? As we continue to rise within our respective social groups and organizations, how can we retain the ability to make confident decisions whilst still keeping our “audience” in mind? Read more…
