10 Reasons Why You Should Care About Public Speaking
Whenever I hear someone say something to the effect of "I don't need to learn how to give a speech" they may as well be scraping their nails down a blackboard. When most people think of public speaking, they cringe. They associate it with doing something they loathe or relate it to professions they loathe such as politicians, instructors or sales professionals.  The bottom line is that you should care about public speaking because out of all the skills out there that you can improve, you'll get the most mileage out of improving your public speaking skills.

How to Deal With Bullies
Being bullied is one of the worst things that can happen to a human being. If you or someone close to you has ever been bullied, you know how unpleasant an experience it can be. It eats away at our self-esteem, our self image and can lead to depression and even violence in cases where victims are pushed over the edge.

Overconfidence - It Hurt Hillary and It Can Hurt You
In one of the most exciting and interesting primary contests in recent memories, there have been many surprises but also several mistakes. Fred Thompson showed us that being fashionably late doesn't bode well with voters. John Edwards showed us that claiming to fight for the poor while living in a house with nearly three quarters of an acre of living space won't get you elected. Rudy Giuliani showed us that you have to actually compete to get elected. Even frontrunners John McCain and Barack Obama made some mistakes, but they were able to overcome them.  The big question is whether or not Hillary Clinton can overcome her big mistake: overconfidence.

The Power of Expectations
Often, it's not the end result that matters - instead it's the end result compared to the expectations. It started out with sports: one person would say that a team won and another would reply back with "yeah, but did they cover the spread?" Now, we've seen it play out in politics with the New Hampshire primary - had Barack Obama not surged to a double digit lead in the polls leading up to the vote, the results would have helped his campaign instead of giving Hillary Clinton all the positive media coverage.

The Danger of Small Decisions
Each day, we make decisions that shape our lives. These can be big decisions such as to change careers, start a business or get an advanced degree or they can be as small as deciding what to focus on at a particular moment. "The devil is in the details" rings especially true here because too many ineffective small decisions can creep up on you and throw you off course.

George Bush's Last Day
Assuming he completes his second term, President Bush will leave office on January 20th, 2009. I learned this upon closer inspection of a date I've seen prominently displayed on several bumper stickers over the last few months.

A Walk Up the Mountain
On May 29th, 1953, Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay became the first people to return from the summit of Mount Everest. Accomplishing this feat took planning - they didn't just take a walk outside and end up at the top of the world's tallest mountain.
