by Jonah Lehrer, c.2012, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt The painting you hung on the wall near your desk relaxes you. Looking at it reminds you of a happy memory, and you wonder how the artist managed to create such a vivid emotion with colored goo. It’s pretty amazing, and it makes you wish you could paint like […]

by David Wolman, c.2012, Da Capo It was hardly worth picking up. Yep, there was once a time when that penny you spotted on the pavement was worth something more than just one cent. You could buy lots of things for a penny back then, and saving them was rewarding on many levels. Now they’re […]

by Susan Cain c.2012, Crown You had to go, so you did — kicking and screaming. Really, you must admit that it was nice of the boss to host the holiday party. In these tough economic times, she didn’t have to do it. She paid for food, a band, even door prizes. Everybody seemed to […]

By James Livingston The bill for the holiday spending spree came the other day, delivered by an industrial-sized forklift. Okay, not quite, but it sure seemed like it. That bill was thick, it had too many numbers to the left of the decimal point, and you’re feeling somewhat ashamed. You should be saving money, not […]

by James A. Roberts Your financial goals for the next year are set.

by Susan E. Reed Your customer base is changing. You’ve been noticing it for the past few years: the face of your average client isn’t what it used to be, not surprisingly. These new customers are savvier, they’re men and women of all age groups, they’re smart about where they shop, and they look like […]

by Philip Galanes Every year, you’re faced with a quandary. Missing the office holiday party is not an option. You have to go, no question. But attending is filled with potential trouble.

by Susan Wilson Solovic with Ellen R. Kadin, foreword by Edie Weiner You’re not going to do it anymore. You’re not going to haul your carcass out of bed at 5 o’dark in the morning, throw down some coffee and dash out the door so you can make it look like you slept at your desk. […]

by Cathy Davidson, performed by Laural Merlington The phone rang. You were interrupted, but you barely noticed. That’s because you were looking online for information on a project due that afternoon. You were also eating lunch when you answered the phone at the same time you replied to a colleague’s email at the same time […]
