    When I first interviewed in the building where I now work, I could not help but notice the inspirational quotes that stood out on the walls, in the halls, and in every meeting room – including the room where I sat, résumé in hand.
  • Building Projects (and Relationships) in the Dark

    Reman U is a place for stories. This post is no exception, but I’m going to go slightly off-script and start by telling you the moral to this story: Most businesses hurt their relationships with customers because they don’t apply the same project management skills that they use in the shop when working with them.
    Now the story…

    Growing up, did Mom tell you that you were special? Do you have special skills? Yum, special sauce! Like paying special assessments? Part of a special interest group? Would you like to place a special order?

    Classic book by ‘godfather of personal development’ remains relevant

    I read a lot of books. Or, I should say, I used to read a lot of books. Since the invention of social media (namely, Facebook), I find myself wasting the time that I used to devote to reading a chapter or two of something valuable on looking at pictures of other people’s vacations. No wonder I’ve been uninspired lately.

    I’ve been standing in line for 30 minutes or so by the time I realize I may not get to eat breakfast today. I’m in line for, what I’ve been told, is the most amazing breakfast burrito on the planet. Apparently it’s no secret, because Good Eggs is packed. Imagine a Qdoba or Chipotle but instead of meat, these guys make eggs, potatoes, and vegetables and wrap them up in a giant tortilla. There are three things on the menu: basic, standard and deluxe wrap. And there are 100 people in line to order them at the counter.
