New York Times columnist David Brooks gives an interesting analysis of research on the traits of CEOs in his column today called In Praise of Dullness. The last paragraph is a zinger at the Obama administration that seemingly comes out of nowhere. Startling for me as a reader (part of the plan, I suppose), quizzical for me as a writer (why not make that point higher in the piece?). The comments section alone is worth the read.
Check out my e-book:
“I don't know why it took me so long, but I found your blog today ... Thanks for expressing your thoughts clearly and authentically. And thanks for wading out into new waters and encouraging me to do the same. It was a refreshing start this morning.”
"I get so much support from your writings - that's why I usually save them for evening reading, when it's quiet and I can think ..."
"Your column changed my life today ... [it] helps me jump into one of my opportunities today with renewed joy."
