Elizabeth Gilbert Talks about Success, Inspiration, and Genius

“… its exceedingly likely that anything I write from this point forward is going to be judged by the world as the work that came after the freakish success of my last book, right. I should just put it bluntly, cuz we are all sorta friends here now. Its exceedingly likely that my greatest success is behind me. Jesus, what a thought…”

“I’m a mule… even I in my muleishness, even I have brushed up against that thing. And I imagine a lot of you have too. Even I have had work or ideas come through me from a source that I can’t honestly identify. And what is that thing? And how are we to relate to it in a way that will not make us lose our minds, but in fact, might actually keep us sane.”

About benleeson
My name is Ben Leeson. I currently work for a large financial company in IT. I went to school at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration concentrating in HR. Professor William Brown taught me and I enjoyed his classes; even acquiring an appreciation for just about all things HR. I didn’t pursue a job in that field after college but I’ve kept up with it. This blog will further my fascination with all things HR. I hope to grow my knowledge of the area through thoughtful writings and spirited feedback. I will attempt to have a fairly routine style so anyone reading can come to expect certain segments. Please excuse my incorrect grammar and occasional misspelling.
