I'm reading an interesting book called The Likeability Factor by Tim Sanders, and if you're looking for a simple way to "get ahead" at work, home, or on the social scene, check it out. The premise is simple: be honestly and genuinely friendly and helpful. There are four elements to likeability.

1. Friendliness
2. Relevance
3. Empathy
4. Realness

You can't truly have one without the previous; they build upon one another. The subtitle of the book is "How to Boost your L-Factor & Achieve your Life's Dreams," and it's worth a look.

In other news, I've had a chance to read most of this book because I've been recovering from a weekend in Las Vegas. Eight of us made the trip, most of us lost money, but I think we all had a great time. If you're headed down soon and looking for a great place to have dinner, try Bautista's Hole in the Wall. The wine is free and it comes in carafes.
