by Joshua Waldman - Sep, 2015
HOUSE: I love the cranky bastard. During last year’s season finale of the TV show House, though, I learned something … and that is the absolute power our right brain has over our lives. The parallel is drawn between House’s patient, whose right brain doesn’t communicate with his left brain, and his own dissociative hallucinations. The patient’s left hand (right brain) seems to have a mind of its own. His hand throws thi...

by Joshua Waldman - Jun, 2015
My grandmother, who is 86 this year, always told me, “humility was for people who could afford it” and when I was 10, I “couldn’t afford it.” She wanted me to be more confident, brag a little bit. I’m sure she was just a proud grandma, and I love her for it. Now, and only after years of corporate experience, do I finally understand what she meant. Of the many cold hard facts of the work-world, one of them is, “You have...
