Frederick E. Allen, Forbes Staff


With the year approaching its end, we found ourselves this week looking at endings, or at least windings down. Scott Davis identified “Five Brands Most Likely to Be Gone by 2015.” Rahim Kananiopined that “If the Future of CNN Is Donald Trump, the Future of CNN Is a Funeral.” Adam Hartung explained “Why the Postal Service Is Going Out of Business,” which isn’t for the reasons you’d think (at least if you’re most of us). AndSusan Adams rounded up the year’s biggest executive goodbyes in “Steve Jobs, Jon Corzine Among 2011”²s Biggest CEO Departures.” Also looking tough times in the eye,Peter Bregman talked about “When Nothing Works,” John Kotter discussed“Bad Words, Bad Outcomes,” and Steve Denning asked, “Innovation: Should We Just Let the Mastodons Die?”

But we’re supposed to be merrily donning our party hats right about now, aren’t we? Well, yes, but careful there, too. Susan Adams reminded us of“How Not to Behave at the Christmas Party,” and Jacquelyn Smith added that“Employees Want a Bonus, Not a Holiday Party.”

In company news this week, Rahim Kanani found“Target on Track to Give $1 Billion for Education by 2015.” He also gave us “An Interview With Dell’s Procurement Director on Environmental Sustainability.” Sasha Galbraith talked to “Bayer CropScience’s Sandra Peterson: Successful Woman CEO Navigates in a Man’s World.” Allen Adamson noted that “General Mills Knows Every Package Tells a Story, and It Had Better Be a Good One.”

On the employment front, Erika Morphy revealed“Five Cities for Job Seekers to Try That Aren’t in North Dakota.” Glenn Llopis offered a cautionary “Five Reasons Self-Promotion Is Your Path to Career Demotion.” Susan Adams listed “The Best Big American Companies for LGBT Employees,” and Jacquelyn Smith ranked “The Best Cities for Sales Jobs.” If none of that gets you closer to what you’re looking for, perhaps you’re seeking nothing less than Susan’s “How to Get Paid to Do Nothing.” Oh, but you want to change your life, too? Todd Essig suggests “Five Books to Help You Make the Most of Living.”

Make the most of all the much, much more, beyond all this, that we offer you, too, by checking out the constantly changing and updating array of riches atForbes Leadership. It even beats doing nothing.
