      It's easy to assume that the most successful people are expert planners who knew exactly where they wanted to be at each point in their career. That's rarely the case.

      My Quarter-Life Career Crisis Didn’t Kill Me—It Taught Me How To Pivot

      Growing up, my girl crushes swung between Judy Blume and Eleanor Roosevelt. I gravitated toward irreverent women who had stories to tell and history to make. Maybe because of this, I felt destined for a career in politics. As a campus activist at Northwestern University, I geeked out to all things political.

      A Psychologist Finally Explains Why You Hate Teamwork So Much

      There's no way around it: Every significant human accomplishment is the result of coordinated group behavior—people working together to achieve a common goal.

He became a dressmaker, and in 1937 received a patent for what he called "a new, original, and ornamental design for a Dress Ensemble."
