In reality, if you have a supervisor with half a brain, you’re sending the message that you can’t balance your own workload. That’s not good. So if you really have to work through lunch, why not invest in a steering wheel desk? That way you can eat and work in your car. Another interesting way to start conversations, especially with the boss, is to get a ridiculous neck tie. A more gender-neutral suggestion is to invest in a very nice…

    Kate and I went to the Oakland Zoo for the first time this past weekend. We loved the sky ride, which lets you see the animals from above, and also gave you an incredible view of San Francisco. Highly recommended. See the full album on Flickr

    We all start out with dreams and many of us translate those dreams into goals and create a solid plan to achieve them. Then life gets in the way; dealing with a difficult coworker, paying off bills, getting this one project done, and suddenly, our goals look farther away than ever despite our best efforts.
