“Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.” – Warren Buffet
Dr. Julie Silver is a giant among medical practitioners. As an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School, Silver has published several award-winning books and is the Chief Editor of Books at Harvard Health Publications, the consumer health publishing brand of Harvard Medical School.
But Silver is known for more than her accomplishments, she’s known as an overcomer. At age 30, Silver found herself on the other side of medicine—as a patient instead of a physician—when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her story from surgery through radiation, chemo, and rehab is now the backbone of her identity.
Maybe it’s the color of the room you’re sitting in.
Color psychology is something that has fascinated people for decades. Artists and interior designers have long believed that colors can dramatically affect moods and emotions, and color marketing has become a hot topic in marketing, art, design, and print. As Pablo Picasso once remarked, “Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions.”
For more than a decade, Dr. Daniel Simons and his colleagues studied a form of invisibility known as inattentional blindness.
In the best-known demonstration, Simons showed a video and asked people to count how many times basketball players in white shirts passed a ball. After 30 seconds, a woman in a gorilla suit sauntered into the scene, faced the camera, thumped her chest and walked away. Half the viewers missed her. In fact, some people looked right at the gorilla and did not see it.
Airbnb is one of the most iconic names for startup success in our generation, quickly becoming one of the world’s fastest-growing companies with over 80 million reservations booked per year through their service.
A considerable part of Airbnb’s marketing strategy includes its responsiveness to both customers and hosts. The company regularly surveys hosts and guests and makes this a priority in their business.
If people can age with class, Harlene Goodrich should be considered a maestro of maturity.
Goodrich, age 81, is a former schoolteacher who lives in Seal Beach, CA. Goodrich returned to school at age 50 to get her master’s degree and has since published a children’s book and won several playwriting contests. Despite serious back and knee surgery in the past decade, Goodrich didn’t shrink back from traveling to Washington, DC, at age 79 to participate in a national protest march.
