Rebuilding after the 2008

Rebuilding after the 2008 "Great Recession"

April 23, 2020

For Cassandra Essick, Employee Engagement Associate at Siegfried, the chaotic events of the past few weeks have reminded her of her struggle through 2008 and her journey back to enjoyable normalcy. The similarities between these two seismic events are striking, but Cassandra promises it will get better: “Even though it’s bad right now, and it might get worse before it gets better, my experiences in 2008 and others’ experiences throughout history show it will get better.”

How to overcome the "forgetting curve" and improve your memory

April 9, 2020

Even now, 20 years later, I remember that Nickelodeon was on Channel 39. I convinced myself that detail was important, and I managed to retain it. However, other information I’ve learned has slipped away as if it was never there in the first place. Much of my memory, like yours, falls victim to the forgetting curve.

Why you can't let comparison steal your joy

March 12, 2020

It’s a natural instinct to compare yourself to other people, from when you were very young to now. Does that kid have better toys? Did Aaron get a higher score on that test? Why didn’t I get accepted to that college too? I just got a new job, but my friend still has a better one.

Bah, humbug! Simple lessons from holiday classics

December 20, 2019

Ah, it’s that time of year! Jingle bells are jingling, carolers are singing, and grocery stores everywhere have a line.

There’s only one weekend left before Christmas, and it’s a perfect time to sit down with your friends and family and watch a holiday classic or two. Maybe It’s a Wonderful Life, or How the Grinch Stole Christmas (one or all of the versions), or Elf. One of our favorite things about holiday movies? There’s always some kind of lesson we can learn.
