That’s 2,551 days in a row and 2,852 posts (I posted more than one per day), for those keeping track.

Need motivation on a challenging project? Start with this quote.

on January 9, 2018 in Blog

Podcasters ask me for favorite quotes. I answer with the one below a lot. I can’t prove it right, but I find it describes what happens when you act remarkably accurately. It’s the opposite of analyzing and planning without acting. It tells you that however you plan, acting with resolve will create opportunities and resources beyond what you can plan.

You think: keeping them waiting isn’t so bad knowing you had a problem and will be a few minutes late. Whew! That was close. You almost faced results for being late but got out of it. When you’re texting you’ll be late, it feels like a minor get-out-of-jail-free[…] Keep reading →

Curating the daily newsletter

on October 2, 2017 in Blog

A slight policy change that I started recently: instead of posting every post daily, I’m going to curate somewhat and not send out for email every daily post. Some posts I write more for myself or I suspect won’t be as popular. This post, for example, I’m not going to send as a daily newsletter. It will still appear as a blurb in the weekly newsletter and on the blog.[…] Keep reading →
