  • How I Keep Creating

    My friend Chris asked how you keep writing. I don’t find this question hard. How do you keep doing anything you find valuable, you schedule time to do it. I keep writing by scheduling time to write almost every day of the week. There is no secret. Inspiration isn’t the key. Sit down and write […]

  • We Should Have Salary Transparency

    I think that salary transparency is important and the only reason companies could really want to hide it is to keep employees from knowing they get paid less. Especially women.

  • 4 Tips to Plan Your Online Course

  • Stopping Selective Memory – You’re Not A Hero

    In The Shock Doctrine – The Rise of Disaster Capitalism Naomi Klein points out that Jeffery Sachs has a selective memory about his role in Russia’s economic meltdown and corruption after the collapse of the Soviet Union1.

  • What about Lefties Lenovo?

    I recently talked about The Color of Law and today someone pointed out the real effects of racial discrimination in housing by sharing the video below in my Discord Channel.

  • Don’t Go Entirely Paperless

    Jamie talks about one of the issues with buying into any system, going overboard. When I was going paperless with Evernote, my experiment was to see if I could go completely paperless, so everything went into Evernote. But I found that 80% of the paper I scanned I never looked at again, even years later.…

  • Why Problems Are Easier to Solve at Night

    Jamie says problem solving seems easier at night and he’s right. In part this is because our default mode network gets to engage at night and it only engages when we are doing nothing in particular that requires focus. We’re so busy today that the only time we don’t have some podcast playing, or music,…

  • Not Excited about the iPad Anymore

    Matt has a good video questioning the excitement around the iPad now. I’ve moved to Final Cut Pro from LumaFusion recently so my iPad usage has dropped in the last 3 months. If Final Cut and all the assets were available on iPad then I’d be using my iPad still instead of macOS. I still…
