There’s other reasons why successful people pay attention to their dreams, and learn how to interpret the sometimes cryptic messages to choose a course of action. Great inventors and scientists such as Edison and Einstein often took naps to cultivate ideas for challenging problems.
While “sleeping on it” may not sound productive to some, with time and practice, it can become quite a revelation for those willing to open their minds to other possibilities!

We often hear people refer to the power of Now, but have you ever heard about the power of YET? In this powerful TedTalk, Dr. Carol Dweck, one of the foremost researchers in educational psychology, discusses how to provide children with the opportunity to succeed through the power and process of YET.
We owe it to all of our children to give them the skills that will empower them to solve problems, any problems. Problem solving skills and perseverence will be the most highly sought after skills in the near distant future when these children inherit a world filled with challenges not of their making.
If you are a parent, teacher, or influencer, I urge you to watch this short clip so you can understand how simple it is to transform learning and students so all of them can succeed!
“…when we survey those with and without college degrees, we find significant personal benefits accrue to those who have college degrees. In its Trends in Higher Education Series, Education Pays, The College Board documents the rewards to individuals: higher job satisfaction, less chance of unemployment, potential for higher earnings, greater social mobility, and better health – leading to a higher quality of life in general.”
— Eileen K. O’Leary, Assistant Vice President and Director of Student Financial Assistance, Stonehill College
While the cost of a college education has gone up by over 50% in the past decade, it is still a good investment if you are seeking a career that requires a college degree.
What I particularly like about this editorial from Eileen O’Leary is that she also asks her readers to consider the value-added aspects of having a college degree, discussing how our society as a whole benefits from its citizens being educated:
civic involvement and votes rates are higher among those with college degrees
regional economies are stronger
tax revenues are higher where educational attainment is higher
overall unemployment is lower
retirement plan contributions are higher
poverty rates are lower
health insurance coverage is stronger
public assistance participation rates are lower
One of my mentors said it the best: When the water rises, so do all the boats.
When we focus on helping others to achieve their greatest potential, it helps everyone!
Empowering others through education is still one of the most effective ways we have to inspire positive change on a large scale that is beneficial to all.
I have been urging my students to create LinkedIn profiles since 2010.
This feature by Viveka von Rosen, author of LinkedIn Marketing: An Hour a Day and founder of LinkedIntoBusiness.com in the current issue of Forbes magazine is by far one of the most comprehensive and practical articles on how to best use this piece of social media real estate to your advantage.
LinkedIn has added a number of new media features, so even if you have created an account, this may be a good time to re-evaluate your profile. Adding a picture and showcasing some of your work is easy and immediately adds to your marketability.
That added value speaks volumes to recruiters, and could help you get a foot in the door!
