I wanted to share some quick snippets from New Cliches with all of you. They’re short and sweet, but a little longer than my usual zuckerisms. However, I think they deploy the same sardonic humor.
In other news, I have an entrepreneurial announcement to make soon, so stay tuned! Exciting things are happening behind the scenes.
My very short piece, titled Bargain Basement Sanity:
There has only been one psychotherapist I have respected because he guaranteed meaningful, measurable results from his therapy.
His bottom line was this:
‘Therapy will cost you $10,000 and one hour of your day, five days a week, for five years. In that time, your income will increase in direct proportion to how much better you will function. So, I can guarantee that, in the long run, my fees cost nothing.’
And another short piece for good measure! This one is called, Between Battles:
Paul was my favorite sparring partner in business, and I took great pleasure in poking at his weak points. So, when I called him to wish him Happy Hanukkah, naturally, he was suspicious.
‘What do you want from me now?’
‘Nothing—just to wish you a Happy Hanukkah.’
‘Bullshit. What are you trying to bug me about now?’
‘Maybe the biggest bug of all is not to bug you about anything.’
