Greetings from sunny Southern California and the last day of my vacation (it’s been unseasonably hot … but it’s still hard to complain). Thanks for letting me have last week off, I truly needed the break.
But now, alas, it’s time to jump on a plane back home. Enjoy this week’s issue while I’m up in the air!
I Could Kale Less
“If you’re like me and aren’t a huge fan of kale, but try to choke down kale salads for the reported nutritional oomph they provide, here are 10 other greens that pack a bigger nutritional punch than kale. Find out which ones have more essential nutrients than the so-called Queen of Greens.”
Touch My Coffee and I’ll Cut You
Will you build a tolerance to caffeine if you drink coffee every day? Does coffee trigger cortisol release? Most importantly, do you care?
Zen and the Art of Palmolive
“After a stressful day at work, some of us may might hit the gym, have a glass of wine or simply settle down in front of the TV in order to calm the mind. But why not try washing the dishes instead? No, really. According to a new study, dishwashing can boost mental well-being.”
Tell Me a (Profitable) Story
Storytelling skills are the secret key behind many a career or entrepreneurial success, um, story. But rather than listen to buzzword pundits, I like to go to the entertainment industry. One approach that worked for me was to study screenwriting, but here’s a way to whet your appetite in a minute and a half.
Apple Pay More?
This article argues that Wall Street could be underestimating Apple’s potential for growth. Despite being a committed Apple fanboy, I’m starting to think that the real innovation in phones is happening at Samsung. But what do I know … that’s why I’m not currently in the stock market.
More Debit than Credit
“When you consider the tremendous convenience credit cards offer, it should be no surprise that consumers end up paying a hefty price to add convenience to their lives. In many cases, though, the price is higher than it should be.”
Love Hurts So Good
“All love stories are frustration stories … To fall in love is to be reminded of a frustration that you didn’t know you had (of one’s formative frustrations, and of one’s attempted self-cures for them); you wanted someone, you felt deprived of something, and then it seems to be there. And what is renewed in that experience is an intensity of frustration, and an intensity of satisfaction.”
Master of Disguise
“You don’t belong here. You’re not good enough. You got lucky. They’re going to realize you aren’t that smart. Ever heard this voice in your head? You’re far from alone. It’s called impostor syndrome.”
Anger is an Energy
“So how can we reap the benefits of anger without succumbing to its dangers? Forgiveness. Sounds simple but research shows there is a lot to it.”
