New job

Big news for me....I have recently accepted a job with Wyndham Worldwide in Parsippany NJ. It has been a bit crazy the last two weeks, but also very exciting. My last day at KPMG is 10/1, which is my birthday btw. I am excited about my new role as an instructional designer and working with the new team. Also, this job is only 5 miles away (substantially closer than KPMG which is 42). So there is a decent amount of time I will get back in the day. However, I have to mention that I will sincerely miss my friends at KPMG. They are some of the best people I have ever known and I hope that we still keep in touch. Brief shout out: I love you everyone!

Being Wrong

I just finished this book and wanted to say that it was quite good. It is not a lame self help book, but rather a systematic look at everyone's troubled relationship to wrongness. I would highly recommend it.

For an exercise in wrongness, please try the following the next time you are mistaken about something. Don't worry it should be soon :) Admit to yourself and others that you were wrong, period. Do not say you were wrong but or explain how you were almost right. Just, I was wrong. It is surprisingly empowering.
