Outside looking in

We love the opportunity to pass judgment on others, and the voyeuristic excitement of seeing the highs and lows of someone who is living in the limelight.

Too many toys

Thinking about those mink eyelashes made me think about my own possessions. Hmm. What do I own that's more expensive than Oprah's eyelashes?

Build up, tear down

The rich and successful give us something to aspire to, and we love them for it. But they also remind us of what we are not, and we hate them for that.

Flaunt it if you want to

There are as many ways of coping with the 'embarrassment of riches' as there are personalities.

Don't begrudge the rich

These very wealthy folks are just human beings. As long as their indulgences are not harmful to others, they should be viewed as just that -- perks of the rich and famous.

Hitting the highlife

Oprah may have her days, but who doesn't? I have a lot of tolerance for someone whose benevolence is as far-reaching as hers.

Not the girl next door

Let's be clear: Oprah is absolutely nothing like you (no offense) or anyone you know.

Cleaning house

For any leader, making the big change takes courage and guts. But without the risk, nothing changes.

One goal

Coach Bruce Boudreau epitomizes the hard-working, low-key coach who can great performances from players who aren't necessarily the most renowned in the league.

Motivating winners

Garfinckle's, Woodward & Lothrop, Hechts and Hechinger all failed because their business models could not change with the times.

Accept only victory

Losing year after year often happens because the same people decide year after year that 'business as usual' is acceptable.

Disconnecting

I just can't let work go. So I definitely don't follow what I think is the best solution or healthiest practice -- vacation, without a laptop.
