Love Isn't Just For Lovers, Or Valentine's Day

February has been co-opted by the Valentine’s Day People of America so that as soon as the holidays are over, stores everywhere put out their red and pink heart displays and start selling the love to the masses. There’s nothing wrong with this, of course, but at times it almost feels like Valentine’…

How To Make Your Commute Work For You

Commutes are almost universally derided as one of the worst parts of our days. Whether it’s on our way to work or on the way home, a bad commute is soul-crushing and not an unheard of or unreasonable reason to look for another job. There are a few things about commutes that make them…

Bill Murray Quotes To Live By This Groundhog Day

We have Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, New Years, and good old-fashioned vacation. Everyone is cheerful, work slows, and the positive vibes are flowing. It’s great, but it’s also the cause of one of the…

In An Era Of Excess, Less Is More

We live in a culture of excess. Everyday we’re bombarded with advertisements and copy points telling us that we need more.
