The medical world is highly invested in labels. While it is certainly practical to be able to identify and categorize diseases, it becomes attractive for practitioners to jump to a trendy diagnosis.

Alan Cohen > What It’s Really For

I was stunned to see the long line of customers waiting in front of the rental car desk. As I counted 50 people and just a few agents to service them, I realized I would be here for at least an hour. Never again will I rent from this company.

Alan Cohen > Guess Who’s Coming to Christmas Dinner

For a few hours each month, all of these people rise above their social identities and come together as equals on the same playing field. What a model for how good it can get if we let it!

Alan Cohen > How to Get Santa to Deliver

My Australian client Meg was tired of her corporate job and wished she could create a layoff with a generous severance package.

This was her idea of creating a treasure map toward her ideal scenario.
