Oh, I love the Tipping point! In fact, all his books, mostly because I find they are less business focused and more people focused. In other words, they can apply to other areas of my life.

There's a thing the freakonomics guys did recently about how gifted people are really just people who practice one thing a lot. In other words, we could ALL do something well with enough praise and teaching and practice. I don't know if it's true, but it feels true?


I respectfully suggest you go through your list of stuff in your lost luggage and decide for each thing what it will take for you to let that thing go. I lost some luggage (we were mugged on our way to the station) and it wasn't until I'd replaced or otherwise made up for many of the lost items that I felt at peace with the experience.

It might work for you.

Hang in there, life sucks sometimes. And for what it's worth, you're a good writer. I love your blog.
