      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. I volunteered on Chicago congressional campaigns and Bill Clinton’s first presidential run. I even ran as a delegate for the Democratic National Convention in 1992.

      Two Simple Steps To Sell Anybody On Your Vision

      Something needs to change, and you think you know how. In other words, you've got a vision, and now you just need to sell it to other people. To help you out, there are two basic facts of psychology you need to know. First, persuading anybody of anything means connecting with what matters to them already.

      My Boss Freaked Out Even Though I Quit Responsibly--But Here's What It Taught Me | Fast Company

      Throughout your career, you’ll have the opportunity to make choices, big and small, easy and hard. At some points you’ll have to decide if you should follow the rules. While I’d typically err on the side of saying you won’t regret it if you do, I’ll also say that even if you do pay your dues and check all the boxes, you could still end up in a place you don’t want to be. Take my story, for example. Many years ago, I managed a small, family-owned restaurant in Brooklyn.

      The "Master Manipulator" Of The Watergate Coverup Is Feeling Déjà Vu

      A clumsy crime that could unravel a giant conspiracy. A paranoid president who lashes out at the media and expresses deep distrust of the intelligence agencies. A top official accused of lying to federal agents. A cover-up that could be worse than the crime. And angry Democrats demanding: "What did the president know? And when did he know it?" This week's headlines are giving John Dean a lot of déjà vu.

      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. Much more often, those folks were simply open to new opportunities from the very beginning—they took chances and learned to embrace what made them unique. But that doesn't mean they wouldn't have done a few things differently.

      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. Of course, that reality doesn't change the fact that for lots of people, teamwork is like pulling teeth. Here's why, and what to do about it. Psychologists know there's a universal human need to belong to groups, but they also know that people aren't always predisposed to working well with each other.

      This story reflects the views of this author, but not necessarily the editorial position of Fast Company. Late last month, a leaked draft of an executive order from the Trump Administration hinted that the Oval Office was considering granting federal contractors a sweeping license to fire or refuse to hire lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people on the basis of religious belief.

      On September 4, 1921, my grandfather arrived in the United States, 17 years old, with just $25 in his pocket. He became a dressmaker, and in 1937 received a patent for what he called "a new, original, and ornamental design for a Dress Ensemble."

He claimed that the actress Elizabeth Taylor once wore the dress it describes in a photo shoot for Seventeen. In many ways, my grandfather was an innovator.
