the choice between money and meaning

Let me put that even more simply. You’re going to need to apply not just the following professional skills — entrepreneurship; “networking,” pluck and drive, strategic thinking, leadership, branding and marketing — but also the following human capacities: a stubborn refusal to obey the dictates of the status quo, an unwavering empathy, a healthy disrespect for the naysayers, the humility of the servant and the pride of the master artisan, a persevering sense of grace, a heaping spoonful of that most dangerously unpredictable of substances, love, and, finally, the unflinching belief in a better tomorrow that those have always had who dust their saddles off, dig their spurs in, and forge ahead into the great unknown. -Umair Haque (props to rita t for tuning me into this blog)

the times? they are a’changin’

Your horoscope for October 9, 2012   Don’t try to fit yourself into a mold of something that you simply don’t belong in, Johna. It could be that you have gone through a major transformation lately in which you have gone from being a square peg to a round peg. Other people might still be trying to push you through the square hole. Don’t let them. Let people know that it upsets you when they continue to treat you differently than who you really are and how you want to be treated.
