Fun Reading for Friday the 13th

No Comments | by KeAnne Hoeg |

Do you suffer from friggatriskaidekaphobia? Or perhaps paraskevidekatriaphobia? Those unpronouncable words are fancy ways of saying that you fear Friday the 13th.  It's estimated that almost a billion dollars in business is lost on Friday the 13th due to millions fearing the day so much they avoid their normal routines.  Granted, my source for this information is Wikipedia, so I invite you to take that data with a big pinch of salt.  Nevertheless, historically, Friday was considered an unlucky day and one on which it was unwise to start a journey or begin a new project. 

That wisdom jives with my feelings about Friday!  So, in the spirit of preventing you from starting work that might not go well, I'm suggesting a few interesting articles I stumbled across this week. 

May your Friday the 13th be painless.  Let me know what you think of the articles and if you have found any thought-provoking articles this week.
