If you've followed this blog much at all, you are aware of my need for an addendum. And so, January brought with it a new tagline: Try again in 2010.
However, trying again in 2010 is not so much about getting the guy as it is about returning to the real me. Or, more accurately, the me I've kept hidden. My blogs are lengthier and a smidge more serious. I wear vests and oxford shirts. I say "no" with far less guilt to parties and phone calls. I wear heels because being on the taller end shouldn't preclude me from sporting cute shoes. And if I see a bouquet of flowers I like, I buy them because buying yourself flowers doesn't make you lame. (okay, I may be trying to convince myself of this last point).
All this is to say, I decided that beginning March 1st I would thoughtfully read one business or leadership book a month, one theology book a month and take one online class a month. Ideally I would have a literary classic thrown in there, but man do I hate reading the classics. I still blame my high-school literature teacher for this.
Now I have 24 lectures on Game Theory from Yale University to look forward to! By the end of this month, I hope to converse on such ideas as dominance, backward induction, Nash equilibrium, evolutionary stability, commitment, credibility, asymmetric information, adverse selection, and signaling.
Somehow, I do not think I will be invited to many more parties....
