10 Till 6

Time well wasted is time well misspent: 10 Till 6 - Your work day almost over, your restless mind wanders as you sit futzing with your cell phone and debating calzone or pad thai for dinner, while re-reading 5 times the same useless post on TMZ about another drunken reality star giving their Pomeranian a Mohawk, or botox, or both. And still you wonder why your parents are so disappointed in you?

Rather than perpetuate your career decline, spend a few minutes expanding your normally limited horizons and check out what other more interesting and talented professionals are doing with their lives. Learn something. Get inspired. You can update your Facebook later – deep down you know no one really cares anyway.

Casually Uninformed

From the publisher of AWN comes a blog designed to provide you a nominal amount of information on subjects slightly relevant so you can quickly learn just enough in order not technically to be “lying” when asked in conversation if you’ve heard anything about said subjects. We all strive to be "casually uninformed" - some more successfully than others. We know just enough to nod our heads and avoid looking clueless. I've gotten by that way for years. Maybe this blog can help you get there too. If you've got comments, questions or the need to hurl some choice invectives, you can contact me at dsarto at awn dot com.
