Weaknesses

I was researching this post on Google and found that most of the articles and information in the top 10 results for “what are my weaknesses” relate to interview questions for a job.  This is interesting to me, because it seems that this is really the only time when people actually think or consider their […]

Reflecting on the past year #reverb10

I have been seeing a bunch of links on Twitter and Facebook about #reverb10 (257 people recently on Twitter). From the #Reverb10 website: Reverb 10 is an annual event and online initiative to reflect on your year and manifest what’s next. The end of the year is an opportunity to reflect on what’s happened, and […]

Response to The Approach: Life Edition – How I Approach People

The first story of an approach that I can remember was when I was in the fourth grade and walked right up to one of the sixth grade teachers and asked him for something (I cannot remember what it was anymore).  The reason I remember this is not because it was out of the ordinary […]

I constantly was thinking up new schemes to make money, whether that was a lemonade stand or pre-stamping all of my grandmother’s envelopes for her business.  This is just the way I work, always trying to get a little more out of what I […]

Matt’s Response: Planning Your Future

I have to agree with Tony’s statements about how “Dreamlining” is a dumb phrase.  It is so stereotypically Disney to “wish upon a star” and hope that everything will work out.  This is great if you are a tiny animated mouse (whether Mickey or Fievel), but you are a human and reality is a bitch.  […]

That’s Totally Gay

Tony Kimberly: Can I ask you a weird question? Matt Bernier: sure Tony Kimberly: What’s important to you? Matt Bernier: What do you mean by that? Tony Kimberly: Uhh, in the long run, in life. What’s important to you. Tony Kimberly: I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching and deciding what I want out […]

Challenge: What’s Important To You?

This challenge is as simple as its title and as difficult as realizing where you really want your journey to end up. Answer the following: What is important to you? OR What do you want out of your life? Bonus if you can use more than just a couple catch-phrase words to describe what you […]
