Economy: Each of us is affected by the current economic situation. Bob is a sound engineer in LA. He has been forced to declare bankruptcy and has started a blog to document his travel along the path.
Business: One of the key guiding principles that I use in my life (both business and personal) is that your reputation is crucial to your success. You can’t afford to mess up on a project without figuring out how to fix it, possibly at a financial loss, for example. I may be rethinking how often I publicly declare my feelings on reputation management. Freakonomics pointed me to an interesting interview with Bernie Madoff, several years ago.
Writing: As part of this blog writing thing, I have had to find my voice as a writer. I know that some of you feel that I should probably find another one, but I believe that I need to use more of a strong active voice. Cindy has written a good post today on the ways that Eric Holder is using active voice and powerful verbs. I guess I could do worse than to try to emulate him.
