Life Rewards Doers

About three years ago, I had this crazy notion I couldn’t get out of my head. I wanted to move across the country to Portland, Oregon.Even though I had never been, and had lived on the east coast my whole life, I just knew that this is where I had to be. For an entire year, while I was finishing my master’s degree at Harvard University, I talked to my friends and family about my vision....more

What Could You Do If You Really Tried?

This morning, I ran the Women's Series 5K. I was supposed to run the half marathon, but due to injuries and a lack of training, I couldn't swing it. Even the 5K was grueling since I hadn't had the opportunity to train in three weeks.It was a great seeing so many women (and some men) come out and stretch their physical abilities to raise money for breast cancer research.

The Celestial Trilogy is comprised of Celestial Run (released last year), Celestial Hunt (which premiered in August) and Celestial Rising (which will begin production later this year). ...more

Gifted children and the overachievement fallacy

"All it takes to be gifted is hard work. Those gifted kids are such high achievers; that’s why they do so well in school. Their parents push them; that’s how they’ve gotten so far." Comments like these are pervasive, and overheard in schools, neighborhoods, and online discussions....more
