Everyone with a cellphone has dropped it. So why is it when it falls to the ground, it always seems to land screen-side down? I’ll explain the science behind it. Then, human beings have a hard time admitting when they are wrong or that they believe something that isn’t true. Psychologist Carol Tavris, author of the book Mistakes Were Made but Not By Me (http://amzn.to/2Blf7vL) explores this phenomenon and explains how it causes a lot of problems in relationships and what we can do about it. Some people are really good at choosing just the right holiday gift for people while others of us are not. Buying the wrong gift can send the wrong message and land you in trouble. If you are “gift-giving challenged, you’ll want to hear this list of gifts you should never buy anyone. And if you think hard work and dedication are the things that will get you promoted at work, you are wrong. Sure, they are important but moving up requires more than competence, it requires understanding how the game is played. Patty Azzarello, author of the book, Rise: 3 Practical Steps for Advancing Your Career, Standing Out as a Leader, and Liking Your Life (http://amzn.to/2k3BSjz) explains what matters and what doesn’t when it comes to getting ahead on the job.
