What to Do When You Have to Work with Someone You Don't Like

What to Do When You Have to Work with Someone You Don't Like | Life @ Work | Scoop.it

Jeff*, like me, is a writer, a speaker, and the head of a consulting company. As far as I can tell, he's professional, well respected, capable, honest, and has a popular following. Someone we both know has asked us to collaborate on a project and there's clearly a mutual benefit to our working together.


It all sounds great except for one thing: I don't like Jeff.

Lessons with 9/11: How to live without regret | Life @ Work | Scoop.it

I was at the World Trade Center when it fell. Every year I say to myself that this will be the last post I write about 9/11. And then every year I write another post. So, now I have a whole archive of posts about my story: I was so close to death, from suffocation, that I went through the acceptance process. Then I lived. Now I write about it.

This column will change your life: structured procrastination

This column will change your life: structured procrastination | Life @ Work | Scoop.it

In 1995, the philosophy professor John Perry wrote an essay entitled Structured Procrastination, about harnessing the power of procrastination to get things done. Finally, he's got around to expanding it into a book. (Insert joke here.) Published in the UK next month, it's called The Art Of Procrastination: A Guide To Effective Dawdling, Dallying, Lollygagging And Postponing, and the name of the publisher is... Workman. (Insert joke here.) A word of caution: readers of the online version of this column may be tempted to leave a comment saying "I was going to read this, but I decided to put it off till later." Should you do so, I will personally come round and set fire to your house.


I mean, when I can be bothered.
