The home of Uncommon Sense: Providing Clarity, Promoting Intelligence


2024 is now here, and some of you may have already blown off your initial New Year’s Resolutions. If so, I urge you to course-correct immediately and adopt a mind-set based on determination, seriousness, and commitment. I myself have embraced new habits that are bringing me great results, and I intend to continue to live by some disciplined practices.

This leads to the Self-Development column, which will explore a variety of ways you can contribute to others through the enhancement of your unique gifts and talents.

In The Elephant in the Room column, I share an excerpt from Dennis Prager of the Foreword he wrote to a book called The Diversity Con. I share Prager’s Foreword because today is Martin Luther King day, and King was all about character, not skin color. Prager’s words parallel that noble ideal.

In the From Ara’s Journal column I explore the sensitive topic on having regrets.

Want to sound smart? Want to present yourself as learned and elegant in your choice of words? The World of Words column will come through for you.

OK, let’s get started.
