What You’re Currently Doing May Not Take You Where You Want to Go.

Have you ever felt like the super-successful are just incredibly lucky?

Do you still have a dream burning in you to be financially independent?

Why do some people catch all the breaks, get promoted, seem happier and healthier?

“You need to work harder!”

“The secret is getting more education. Go back to school.”

“Just be a suck-up at work to get ahead.”

But then you see that someone who doesn’t work as hard gets that management job.

You don’t have the time or money to get another degree.

And there’s no way you’re kissing up to the boss if that’s what it takes.

Maybe you’ve set some goals and then missed them. You’ve probably heard:

Yeah, great. You buckle down and try again, but something doesn’t seem right.

I know. I’ve been there. Read on to hear my story, of how I started with next to nothing and learned success from the bottom up.

You weren’t dedicated. You lack organizational skills. You need a system.

P icture yourself driving on a winding, country road. Suddenly, a disheveled man jumps onto the road. He looks like he’s been in an accident, bleeding, panting from exertion, running in your direction. “Stop!” he calls out. “The bridge ahead is out! I wrecked my car and jumped out in time. I ran back to warn other drivers!”

What do you do? Do you keep driving along and ignore the warning? Of course not!

You stop. Not many of us would want to fly down a highway risking our lives after a warning like that one.

Many years ago, I heard a speaker share that story. It was a humorous way to get the point across about warnings. That same point is relevant today.

Hey, You!

Let me be that man in the highway, waving to you, trying to flag you down along the journey of life. I’m saying, “Don’t make these mistakes!” with the hope you will heed the warning and successfully make it to your intended destination. There are secrets that can propel you forward.

You Can Access the Wisdom of the Most Successful!

I started with no money and no magical idea. When I was very young, I worked as a busboy in a small restaurant. I watched drunks at the bar blow their paychecks. I saw others grow businesses by the millions each year. Same place, different story.

It was like that at home, too. I tell that story in the preface of my book.

Why did some succeed and others fail?

It became the study of my life, my passion.

When I finished my degree, I was buried in debt and unsure of what to do next. I didn’t even consider happiness and fulfillment.

All of the wisdom gleaned from a successful and wide-ranging leadership career, from decades of studying leadership psychology, and from over 1,000 interviews with the most successful people in life and business is packed into his new book. He wants everyone to avoid the most common mistakes that hold people back from becoming successful change agents and leaders. This powerful story is packed with wisdom that will help you discover and follow your personal purpose, push beyond your perceived capabilities, and achieve more than you ever dreamed possible!

N aïve. When I started as a busboy, I didn’t even know what the job was. I thought I would be working on a bus. And beyond that, when I went to school, I was clueless how to succeed.

Maybe your story is like mine:

Not only did I not have a silver spoon, I was a bit jealous of anyone who did.

So how did I go from that humble start to where I am?

Long BEFORE I was a CEO, I was financially secure. With no inheritance. I learned to become debt-free with enough money to do what I want to do, not what I have to do.

How did I:

Get promoted faster than others on my team?

July 30 – August 11

This two-week program is for advanced students who are committed to serious study in their discipline. While students participate in the Sun Valley Youth Orchestra, much of the work focuses on chamber ensemble experiences. Students in this program work directly with Sun Valley Summer Symphony musicians, guest artists, and conductors. Recent guest artists include Itzak Perlman, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Jennifer Koh, Joyce Yang, Time for Three, Deborah Voigt, Midori, Renee Fleming, Audra McDonald, and Thomas Hampson. Students should possess a curiosity and desire to work in small ensembles where peer and faculty critique is encouraged and appreciated. Audition tapes are required for all applicants at this level and should represent students as leaders among their peers.

The Work

The first week focuses on chamber music and small ensemble performance opportunities. String students will be placed in appropriate chamber ensembles. In addition to master classes, discussions, and coaching time with professional musicians, each chamber group will have ample time to work together to develop a sense of ensemble and prepare material for performance. Much of this work will be performed at the end of the project. In the second week, students also will participate in the Sun Valley Youth Orchestra rehearsals while remaining committed to their small ensemble work.

Special Opportunities and Performances

During the 2018 Institute, many guest artists will interact with our Encounter students. Pianists Yefim Bronfman and David Fung will be performing, as will soprano Celine Byrne and baritone Hugh Russell . Associate conductor, Sameer Patel, leads the Chamber Orchestra. Additionally, students will interact with various musicians from the Sun Valley Summer Symphony in special discussions and master classes. The Encounter culminates in several performance opportunities that celebrate the contributions of each student to the program and represent the level and breadth of work of the program.

WordPress post revisions are a helpful core feature that let you quickly view previous versions of your posts or pages, as well as see what changes have been made and restore one of those previous versions, if desired.

In this article, we will cover everything that you need to know about WordPress post revisions. In addition to learning what revisions are and how they function, you’ll also learn how to:

How WordPress post revisions work

Here’s how revisions function by default in WordPress:

by default

Every time that you save a draft or publish/update a post, WordPress saves a copy of how the post looked at that exact moment as a revision.

You can always go back in and access that specific revision to view it or restore it to the current version of your post. It’s there forever .

Additionally, each revision also tracks which user made the changes and when, which is helpful for keeping track of who’s doing what with your content.

Revisions are connected to another feature called autosaves . By default, WordPress will save a copy of your content every 60 seconds while you’re editing it ( this saved copy is overwritten every 60 seconds – there can only ever be one autosave for each user ).


This is to help you avoid losing your content in the event of a browser crash or lost Internet connection.

You can also access autosaves using the revision interface. Autosaves are labeled Autosave and are marked with red text, though, which makes them stand out from regular revisions.


To access revisions for your post, look for the Revisions option under Publish in the WordPress editor. Then, click the Browse link.

Revisions Publish Browse

Note, this option will only show up after you have at least two different versions of the post. If you’ve never edited the post before, you won’t see it :

In the Revisions interface, you can use the slider to move between different revisions. Each time you move the slider, you’ll see:

As you drag the slider, you’ll also see:

There’s also helpful color-coding to indicate the specific changes that were made between each revision. For example:

By dragging the slider, you can compare two revisions but only in sequential order .

If I were designing an algorithm that was going to scrape the web and highlight stories at the top of Google, I might blacklist some sites to make sure it’s not littered with bullshit. And the first site I would probably pick would be 4chan, an entirely anonymous, user-generated, virtually unmoderated forum with a track record of astroturfing and spreading hate. The problem is not that an inaccurate 4chan post appeared in the top stories module, as Google’s statement says, it’s that a 4chan post even appeared at all.

Meanwhile, the company’s statement cast responsibility on an algorithm as if it were an autonomous force. And while algorithms like the ones that govern Google’s search engine have gotten sophisticated and complicated, Google still has full and complete control over them.

This shortcoming is often on display at Google and elsewhere when there is a traumatic breaking news event. Over on Facebook’s “trending” section, algorithmically compiled stories for the shooting includes an article from a Russian propaganda outlet, Sputnik, incorrectly saying that the FBI had connected the shooter to ISIS (in fact, the FBI said the opposite ). Facebook may not have intended for its algorithm to be surfacing false information from Russian state-owned news outlets, but that doesn’t mean it is the algorithm’s fault. The algorithm merely executes. No one other than Facebook decides what it does.

Right now, FB's trending topic page for the Las Vegas shooting features two (2) posts from a Russian propaganda outlet.

The only reasonable conclusion at this point is that tech companies like Google and Facebook do not care about fixing this. Based on Google’s statements it does not appear that the company plans to prevent 4chan from popping up in its top stories module in the future. Instead it defers to the vagaries of its algorithms, as if doing anything proactive would be interfering with their sacred work. “There are trillions of searches on Google every year. In fact, 15 percent of searches we see every day are new. Before the 4chan story broke, there wasn’t much surfacing about [geary danley], and so we weren’t showing a Top Stories section for this set of queries. So when the fresh 4chan story broke, it triggered Top Stories which unfortunately led to this inaccurate result,” the company said in an email. The wording from Google here is strange, as 4chan has no news stories, only threads populated with the images and musings of 4chan users.

The passive language used here is all the more disingenuous given that Google made a conscious choice in recent years to start endorsing certain search results over others. Traditionally, the company acted like a reference; you asked for resources, it provided them to you and let you work out answers yourself. If I searched for “flat earth” on Google, I will immediately find many communities and information for flat earth truthers. That is Search working as intended, and there is an implicit understanding by people who use it that some of the results may not be credible. But when Google decides to highlight stories at the top of its page, it is attaching an aura of credibility to them. Special categories including the Top stories module as well as the featured snippets and “Knowledge Graph” excerpts attempt to save you time by directing you to a more curated result, or provide a direct answer to questions without the need to dive into search results at all. When these curated answers are wrong, Google often points to low search volume, which means too little data for the algorithm to come up with a good result.
