Join a start up. You'll learn even more about yourself, at a faster pace, in an environment where the stress level reasonably matches the impact you're making.

While its gonna suck for your sleep, + 1's are a good way to find what you're passionate about. Back when I was on a project I loathed, I stumbled upon a team writing a white paper about something I'm truly passionate about. Now I'm about to be published as the lead editor for a topic that genuinely excites me.

Anyone know of anything (books, sites, etc) that is helpful for generating tactical or “360” executions for a concept? It’s my weakest skill and I want to work on it.

I need to change a column of text. The text in the column currently is a ranking we used for sales data ex. Tier 1, Tier 2, etc. and I need to change it to Small medium or large. There are 8 tiers that are condensing down 4, so I was hoping to use OR or something so I wouldn't have to write 8 parts in the function since there are repeats (Both tier 1 and 2 should put out "large). However, thats not working. Any help?
