College was a great time.

Like most college graduates, I didn't just walk away from university with an education, I left with an unbelievably deep and meaningful view of the world, influenced greatly by my schoolmates and educators, that I would never have received otherwise.

Which is why I found disturbing the recent news that state legislators withdrew much-needed funding from two South Carolina public universities for assigning "gay-themed" texts to freshman.  Read about it here.

While I understand the point of view that "public" institutions, such as state-funded universities, should consider the opinions of the tax-payers who fund it, I am miffed by the lack of courage demonstrated by our legislators.  Clearly, this move is a power grab by zealots numbering in the minority, and allowing the few to have such influence over the many begs the more frightening question ... what's next?

Steve Jobs 7 Rules of Success

On this Friday, I am revisiting an old blog post that has been in the queue since the passing of Steve Jobs in 2011.  When Jobs passed, the internet was abuzz with the deep and significant impact he made on our lives, from computing to movies to how we communicate today.  He was inspirational to me, and his "7 Rules of Success" have long been a list I look to regularly.  The rules are listed below, and while I had originally lifted the list from an article in Entrepreneur by Carmine Gallo with the expectation to craft my own article around it, that clearly never happened.  So, in the interest of time (although no longer urgency), I hope you find inspiration in this great article below.  Happy Friday, and cheers!

@Inc: The Five Most Destructive Phrases in Business.

Nothing will kill the productivity of a meeting or a business than these five dreadful phrases.  Come to think of it, they are pretty nasty even in a personal context.  Essentially, if you feel you can accomplish something, there shouldn't be any reason you can't ... except yourself.
