Fear is a Friend Who’s Misunderstood

Fear is a Friend Who’s Misunderstood

I was listening to the radio the other day, and a John Mayer song came on. I was struck by one line in the song: fear is a friend who’s misunderstood. I don’t usually get huge psychological insights from John Mayer, but I thought this line was particularly deep. I...

Move Forward in Humility

This post is Part 12 in a 12-part blog series on humility and growth. (If you missed the first post, you can find it here.) We all want to grow and be better. We all have things in our life that we would like to change or be different. But sometimes, try as we might,...

Have you ever had something in your life you wanted to start doing, or stop doing, but you just couldn’t seem to make the change? Or maybe you were able to ‘white-knuckle’ it for awhile, but you haven’t been able to sustain the change. This can be a very frustrating...
Follow Your Own Advice

Follow Your Own Advice

Why is it so difficult to follow your own advice? I dealt with this problem the other day. I have a rule for my graduate students called the 10-minute rule. Basically, the rule says that if you are working on a project, and you get stuck for more than 10 minutes, you...
