From Round to Square (and back)

For The Emperor's Teacher, scroll down (↓) to "Topics." It's the management book that will rock the world (and break the vase, as you will see). Click or paste the following link for a recent profile of the project:

A new post appears every day at 12:05* (CDT). There's more, though. Take a look at the right-hand side of the page for over four years of material (2,000 posts and growing) from Seinfeld and country music to every single day of the Chinese lunar calendar...translated. Look here ↓ and explore a little. It will take you all the way down the page...from round to square (and back again).
*Occasionally I will leave a long post up for thirty-six hours, and post a shorter entry at noon the next day.

[b] Quoi...RF
What is a complete and fulfilling human life? Do we ever feel that something is lacking? What is it (gluten...)?

This cartoon nails the je ne sais quoi at work in thinking about completeness.

Maybe we need less sugar, fat, and gluten. Maybe we need more respect...and a stronger moral compass.

The rest is history (and theory).
