Day 8: Come in Good Faith If you’ve been enjoying/tolerating this blog for any length of time, you know that I did indeed go to law school, for all of the wrong reasons(…hmm, doesn’t that sound like a horrible country-western song?

Why not You?

If nothing else, if I could get all my clients/humans everywhere to understand that perfection is one of the biggest time-wasters… I’d be (somewhat) satisfied.

(Skeptical? AND those are just two for example; I could find hundreds more.)That’s not to say…

I was tempted to write something about Wendi Deng Murdoch kicking some serious ass yesterday at the parliamentary hearings in London, when that poor schnook protester tried to throw a pie in her hubby’s face…booya! As that boy learned the very hard way, Wendi is not about to let her man get punked! Hell no, son.…

I’ve been thinking a lot recently about the importance of self-confidence, and how damaging the lack of self-confidence can be on ones’s ability to make and sustain the hard choices necessary to success…and that formed a link in my mind with the phenomenon of the “scambloggers:” some (understandably) pissed-off men and women who blog about…
