Mindset of Great Achievers

It's often difficult to get much needed space from your busy work schedule to gain a clearer perspective on your career.

Does Your Job Stress or Energize You

This quote by Simon Sinek, author of the popular business strategy book “Start with Why” and its related TED talk, showed up on my facebook page this morning and it resonated with me so much that I felt compelled to share my thoughts.
