Change… It Won’t Kill You! | Life @ Work | Scoop.it
One of the things that we fear most in life is change. The greatest change we know of is from life to death and often times we relate to change as though it’s death itself. No wonder change is so scary! We get accustomed to things being a certain way, we want them to stay the same and we hold on for dear life. We know what we like and we like what we know. We each have our comfort zone and whether we realize it or not, many of our decisions and actions are intended to keep us there and maintain the status quo. As the old saying goes, “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it”.

Take a Tour of the Miniature Version of Hogwarts

Take a Tour of the Miniature Version of Hogwarts | Life @ Work | Scoop.it
Relatively few films can claim the lucrative after-life that is destined for the Harry Potter saga. The fact that the eight-movie cycle concluded last summer will, of course, not deter Warner Bros. from profiting off the franchise for years, perhaps even generations to come.

But the theme park aside, which is admittedly kind of cool, we’re guardedly excited about the movie studio’s latest ploy to get Potter-philes to reach back into their savings: a tour of the giant scale model of Hogwarts castle.
