Why Do We Follow Systems Even When it Doesn't Make Sense LiveWorkAnywhere.com

Why do we always follow systems even when it doesn’t make sense? I’m not just talking about business—I’m talking about life. We don’t even realize we are trained, like dogs. To respond, to act. To exist. As I write this, I just went through airport security. I had spent the night at the airport, and my nerves were fried. But … Read More

Bank, Mail, and Ants

Today I was told from Bank of America that my visa card was ‘massively compromised’ and was cut off – rest assured, they sent a new card to my Seattle address… I thought I was being well prepared by notifying the travel department ahead of time.
