Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. (Albert Einstein) This is one of my favorite quotes because it is so simple yet so true. Easier to say than do, but try to stop occasionally and ask yourself if you're making this mistake...in your job search, at your current position, in your relationship, with your kids, whatever is most relevant to your life. Recognizing that you're doing it is definitely the hardest part, once you've taken notice you can consciously make an effort to do something different. I'm not a fan of New Year's resolutions, so let's just call this an Idea for the New Year. Here's to a great 2009!
