First Paragraph

There was a time when the Constitution was not yet a historical document. There was a time before it had been subjected to the interpretation and reinterpretation of the Supreme Court over the course of hundreds of cases. There was a time when it looked doubtful that the people of the thirteen independent states would agree to a plan for a new federal government that had been produced in secrecy and without legal authorization. 

- From The Accessible Federalist: A Modern English Translation of 16 Key Federalist Papers by S. Adam Seagrave

I once downloaded a PDF I believe from your blog years ago about how to be brilliant. I lost it over the years and wondered if you know what I'm talking about and can repost. I'd like to share it with my team.

As an aside I've been reading your blog for over 15 years, since I was a public accountant, and credit the ideas I learned here a lot with the success I've had since becoming a corporate accountant, now a controller. So in case you sometimes wondered if your work affects anyone, well, it has made a big difference in my life!

Your words mean more than I can say. I am very glad to hear about your advancement!

I will check on the how to be brilliant post. If I can locate it I will repost it next week.

Thanks for reading Execupundit!

Best wishes,
