“All men’s natures are alike – it’s their habits that carry them far apart.”
One of the books I committed to reading during the month of February is The Habit Factor by Martin Grunburg. After finishing it, I would highly recommend it. The above quote is just a glimpse into the kind of thinking that is reflected in this book which focuses on finding a way to achieve goals to their full potential through habit. Habit, as defined by the Webster Dictionary, is a usual way of behaving: something that a person does often in a regular and repeated way.
Now, these habits can deter you from doing what you really want to accomplish or they can help you in achieving success in your life. It’s all about figuring out which tasks in planning your goals can become habits. Doing this will move these tasks from being cognitive to reflexive allowing these goals to be achieved with less effort.
Through nearly 3,000 years of philosophy and success literature, The Habit Factor shows you how to bring these focused habits into your life so you can get from point A to point B without distraction. The book takes you on a “mind bending adventure of insight and application” as it explores the deepest mysteries of habit. Empowering the reader, the book also introducing an innovative process designed to help you create and align your habits to achieve your goals more quickly than before.

House Education and the Workforce Committee Chairman John Kline (R-MN) and Subcommittee on Higher Education and Workforce Training Chairwoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) today sent a letter to President Barack Obama seeking information on his plans to use executive authority to advance the administration’s preferred higher education policies.
Chairman Kline said, “Last summer we successfully worked with the Senate and the administration to enact a new law that cuts student loan interest rates and provides stability for borrowers. Through the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act, we have an opportunity to build upon that bipartisan accomplishment and develop comprehensive policies to strengthen the nation’s higher education system for future generations. But we need the president to be an ally in that effort – not obstruct legislative progress with executive actions and reckless rulemakings.”
“The president needs to work with Congress so that we can bring the higher education community together and find common ground as we reauthorize the Higher Education Act this year. Unfortunately, we are off to a difficult start,” Rep. Foxx said. “The president’s repeated threats to circumvent Congress and the failure of his Department of Education to submit any plan or goals for the reauthorization are worrisome indicators. It’s my hope that they will come to the table and help us forge bipartisan solutions to the pressing issues we face in higher education.”
In the letter, Chairman Kline and Rep. Foxx write:
As we continue moving forward with our efforts to reauthorize the Higher Education Act, we hope to work in partnership with the administration to craft policies that will strengthen the law for students, families, teachers, and college leaders. However, your recent threats to circumvent Congress are a major obstacle in this process… We are disappointed the administration would threaten to subvert Congress on higher education policy... Instead, the department continues to propose prescriptive, one-size-fits-all policies that not only ignore the realities of our nation’s diverse higher education system, but are also strongly opposed by many higher education stakeholders.
The leaders request a briefing from the White House Domestic Policy Council later this month on the administration’s plans for future executive actions, as well as additional summits with higher education stakeholders.

The U.S. Small Business Administration's Office of Advocacy (Advocacy) submits the following comments on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA’s) Proposed Occupational Exposure to Respirable Crystalline Silica Rule. OSHA’s proposed rule would establish a new permissible exposure limit (PEL) and action level for respirable crystalline silica and impose a host of ancillary requirements, such as exposure assessments, medical monitoring, engineering and work practice controls, personal protective equipment, respiratory protection (when engineering and work practice controls are insufficient to meet the PEL), training, and recordkeeping. A more detailed discussion of the proposed rule is provided below.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Senator John Thune (R-SD), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, today introduced bipartisan legislation (S. 2026) to exempt Olympic and Paralympic medalists from being taxed by the Internal Revenue Service on the medals and cash prizes they win at the Olympics.
“Too often the U.S. tax code punishes success and no place is that more evident than the taxing of successful Olympic and Paralympic athletes,” said Thune. “Most countries not only compensate their Olympic and Paralympic at...

House Education and the Workforce Committee Chairman John Kline (R-MN) issued the following statement after President Obama signed an executive order affecting federal contractor employees:
The president’s failed policies are crushing working families with high unemployment, rising health care costs, and stagnant wages. We need commonsense solutions that will create jobs and raise the wages of all Americans, not just a select few – and the president's action fails on both counts. Despite the president’s executive political ploys, House Republicans will continue to advance responsible reforms that help improve the lives of all working families.
