Is resurrecting Google’s BookBot the need of the hour?

Everyone in Silicon Valley is trying to design something straight out of the future. We treat science and technology as the end all be all of our issues and rightfully so, but here is an unpopular opinion – do we REALLY need technology in every aspect of our lives to make it better? A decade ago, robots doing all our tasks were just a thing of movies and today we don’t go a day without interacting with a robot – think about it, even if you call a place there is a 99% chance an automated voice ...

All-Access Pass

This blog post is sponsored by but as always, the opinions and experiences expressed in this post are my own. Still feeling a bit depleted following the holiday havoc? The dust has settled and the days of 2020 valiantly soldier on, but something seems to be missing. Plagued by an undefinable emptiness, once spirited conversations suddenly fall flat, marred by a pervasive emptiness. Don’t worry, it’s in your head- It’s simply not in your wine cellar, either! Pouring generous glasses all throug...

Don’t Lose Sight of the Dream

Don’t lose sight of the dream. It sounds cliché, right? But it’s one of those things that we need to remind ourselves of over and over again. I was reminded of the importance of the overarching vision while reading Richard M. Weaver’s Ideas Have Consequences. In it, he says, “logic depends on the dream, and not the dream upon it . . . a waning of the dream results in confusion.” While his language from 1948 might be a bit dated, his ideas are not. What do I mean by dream? I mean the big “why,” t...

The Formula for a Successful Presentation, Part 3

I distinctly remember sitting in a small meeting room with about 20 other people.  A professional church planter had flown in from Colorado to speak to our group. His job was to equip and prepare us to start a new church in our city. I remember a few of his key points, but nearly 7 years later, the main thing I remember is how passionate his delivery was. He practically radiated passion. And it was contagious. In an article for the Harvard Business Review, Curator of TED, Chris Anderson said, “p...
