Wandering Into Wisdom

This blog chronicles the knowledge, insight and wisdom I encounter every day as a leadership consultant, executive coach, educator, father, friend and citizen. This site is dedicated to my father, Louis (Jack) Laughlin, who passed on to me an appreciation for wisdom. A special thanks to my friend Isaac Cheifetz, a businessman and journalist, who helped me understand the value of blogs and encouraged me to write one.

Not Ignorant

The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance - it is the illusion of knowledge.
- Daniel J. Boorstin


"The job of a newspaper is to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable."
