This week I was working on a project where I needed to embed file names into a document. Typically, I open the File Properties dialog on Windows and grab the name. I couldn’t see the whole file path and my mouse skills weren’t up to the norm. It’s during these times that you look for Plan B. Sure enough, I had forgotten – copy as path.
Last night, I attended an event where several speakers stressed commitment. While many in the audience nodded in agreement, I cringed. The reaction had nothing to do with the speakers, but how I think the word has lost value. The problem is we often say we’ll do something, but fail in the execution.
