The Distrustful Generation Much has been written of late about the Millennial Generation. Much has been made about some of the data concerning their social behavior. “But the most dire social problem is that Millennials don’t trust their neighbors.

See what you think.
Seven Principles for Setting Goals That Work “How do you make change happen? More than that, how do you make the right change happen? When there is a gap between what is and what you want to be, how do you cross that gap?” This is a guest post by Matt Perman on Michael Hyatt’s blog. This is a good read that will cause you to think about your leadership role and goals in a new way.
