The challenge of challenging yourself

Forecasting is a fool’s game, but let’s assume that I’m in a decent position for 2015: I like my job and city, am liked back, and my personal life is mildly together.

Stories behind the stories — Feb. 9, 2013

Trying something out because I rarely write anymore but read more widely than ever. In my day job, I deliver the news of the day in several industries. But there’s always the story behind the story — the context, the background, the human interest, or just the fun and silly. Each weekend (I hope!?), I’llContinue reading “Stories behind the stories — Feb. 9, 2013”
