HR Directors, Random Thoughts and Radioactive Atoms

Random thoughts pop into my head from time to time. The trick with random thoughts is capturing them.

Why? Because random thoughts offer you nuggets of wisdom, clarity or even hilarity - if you can capture them.  Capturing random thoughts is easier said than done since they can disappear in a literal blink of the eye.

Ever notice though how every now and then, one just seems to stick around, popping in, popping out, forcing you to pay attention to it?

About a month or so ago, I had a random thought that I just can't shake. There I was walking purposefully down the hall to my office when out of the blue, I started thinking about "half-life." You know as well as I (thank you Wikipedia!) that half-life often describes the decay of discrete entities, such as radioactive atoms.   

Half-life is an interesting word and an interesting concept. What's even more interesting is that this word randomly appeared in my head at the end of a particularly challenging week. Interesting, huh? Yup, interesting enough to get me thinking.

So, what is the half-life of a Director of HR anyway?
