      The Principle of Reciprocity Can Work for You

      Quid pro quo is a noun that means something given or received for something else, which is very close to its original Latin meaning of something for something. Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster repeatedly used the term in conversation as Foster's character, FBI agent Clarice Starling, interviewed Hannibal Lecter (Hopkins) in 1991's Oscar-winning The Silence of the Lambs. This famous film relationship, which also garnered each of them an Academy Award for Best Actor and Best Actress, respectively, was based on the principle of reciprocity. Obviously, reciprocity paid off for these two stars and their on-screen personas, and it can pay dividends for you, too, if handled in the proper manner.  ...Read More

      The Importance of Following Through

      Nearly two weeks ago, an armed teenager walked into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, and killed seventeen people.  Over a month before this massacre took place, the Federal Bureau of Investigation received information from a concerned citizen identifying the killer as dangerous based on the facts that he was armed, had previously exhibited violent behaviors, and was making threatening comments online.  This tip came into the FBI Public Access Line and should have been forwarded to the Miami Field Office for further investigation, but it never was.  The FBI's failure to follow through with protocol, coupled with failures by the Broward County Sheriff's Office, allowed for the loss of many innocent lives. ...Read More

      In 2004, theoretical physicist and former ABC News science correspondent Michael Guillen wrote Can a Smart Person Believe in God? This thought-provoking book offers some insightful comments about the importance of spirituality in people’s lives. Guillen contends that there are two important and distinct qualities to human existence. The first quality, Intelligence Quotient, is well known to people and is understood to refer to our abilities to solve problems, analyze situations, and acquire knowledge. The second quality, which is lesser known and often rejected or ignored, is Spiritual Quotient. Spiritual Quotient, or SQ, refers to our abilities to perceive nonphysical aspects of reality. When working in tandem, IQ and SQ give one the heightened ability to solve complex physical and metaphysical problems through spiritual consciousness and conviction. Our life journeys are enhanced when we seek both a higher level of IQ and SQ.  ...Read More
