  • it fool you A Colonel of Wisdom My recent grade school reunion reminds me of the importance of community and why sometimes change can be so difficult Because youre the leader Jack Layton continued to lead even when it got really hard You must too What kind of f kery is this Be careful not to squeeze to death your golden goose lessons from the untimely death of Amy Winehouse Domo Arigato Mr Roboto Why Styx should have stuck to what they did best and what it means for organizations changing everywhere When even the medium isnt the message Got something to say So say it Don t muddle it with cutsie designs messed up metaphors or imagery that doesn t make sense Why I hate Spam The problem with blogs fraudsters posing as genuine commentators 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Recent Posts What do dreams actually mean Help us fight human trafficking and then you realize you re a liar too and what to do to fix it I don t wanna know What ever happened to class Recent Comments Mel on I don t wanna know Kiran on Let me go Archives March 2015
