THERE IS NO SPOON

I love it when you call me Big Papi – Reflections on David Ortiz from a Red Sox fan – #thereisnospoonfriday

We knew this was coming, but even as it was announced (formally) yesterday from David Ortiz himself we never really wanted to believe it. Yes – the most clutch and charismatic player in Red Sox history is calling it quits after this upcoming season. Even though Ortiz just turned 40 (an age not many in…

The Top 5 Front Men of All Time – #thereisnospoonfriday

I was on a business trip recently and got in a really cool discussion with someone about who were the best “front men” in music history. What I thought would be a “no-brainer” list was actually much tougher to come by than I thought. We came up with the criteria that no “solo acts” and…

The Red Pill Talent Review – “Ash Vs. Evil Dead” and “Supergirl” – #thereisnospoonfriday

TV has certainly “upped it’s game” the past 10 years or so. From “The Sopranos” to “Breaking Bad” to “Orange is the New Black” to “Game of Thrones” to “The Walking Dead”, TV has almost – ALMOST – pushed its way past movies for the better entertainment value (this is a topic for another post…

Why Long Term stints on a Resume are NOT a bad thing – the latest recruiting bias debunked

A while back, I posted a blog about “Why I Don’t Care About Short Term Stints on a Resume” and the response was all over the place from readers. Some people giving me a “Right on Ed!” and others thinking I just drank a fifth of Jack Daniels when I wrote it, with one person…

The Top 7 Annoying Things People Do When Flying – #Thereisnospoonfriday

I am not someone who enjoys flying (just ask my wife and kids). Every bit of turbulence that hits I get white knuckles and probably freak out everyone sitting near me. Traveling is great when you GET to the destination, but I personally hate with the power of 10,000 Death Stars the “airport experience”. This…

The Top 5 John Lennon Songs of All Time – #thereisnospoonfriday

If you have been reading any of my blogs then you know by now what a massive Beatles fanboy I am. I have tons of memorabilia (if you ask my wife I have WAY too much) and have been raising my 10 year old boy and 7 year old girl to be fans since birth.…

My Top 5 Pump Up Songs of All Time – #thereisnospoonfriday

It has been a crazy week for me schedule wise, so this Friday’s blog post is admittedly a bit hurried. As the weekend is now upon us, we naturally start getting excited for some personal time away from work. One of the things I love doing on a Friday is putting on my headphones and…

Should You Hire a Friend?

As someone who has worked in Recruiting and HR for 20 years now (damn that made me feel old just typing that) I have seen a ton of equally crazy and awesome stuff. When your “product” is people, you can bet there is always something that will happen that will either a) surprise you b)…

The “Mount Rushmore” of Boston Sports – #thereisnospoonfriday

I am an unabashed Boston sports homer. It has been a glorious decade plus now of Boston sports. Each of the big four teams have taken home a championship, and in the cases of the Red Sox and Patriots, several. The rest of the country’s sports fans hate us with the power of 10,000 suns,…

It’s conference season – a look forward and a photographic look back

Its that time of year again – Talent Acquisition conference season. I will be attending a couple this year as is my standard plan. I truly wish I could go to more of these but alas work and schedules don’t allow for it. On a side note – I am truly jealous of what I…
