    Gamble House

    My wife and I visited the Gamble House during a recent trip to California. The house has been maintained close to its original early 1900's appearance. The craftmanship of the home and the furnishings is superb. Regardless of the behavior of the company today, in the early 20th century the...

    Disappointing woodworking class

    Gonzalo, If I were in your shoes I'd feel exactly the same way. I'd rather hear bad news quickly and directly, with enough time to change my plans, than hear nothing. Much like the experience I described with the supplier I drove 2 hours to see. I'd rather have been told when I made the...

I've also seen people who as they become more successful are able to control the "ego" dimension of fame but do experience difficulty managing their increasing time commitments effectively. In many instances they say yes to too many requests and...
