Your Giant Pumpkin

One of my favorite business books is The Pumpkin Plan by Mike Michalowicz. It uses the analogy of growing giant pumpkins and applies it to building a business. The basic idea is to figure out who your best customers or clients are, so you can specifically tailor your business to serving them well. Then ideally you’ll attract more people like them and build a thriving business that’s also a joy to run. Here’s the key though: To grow a giant pumpkin, you need to pluck the smaller pumpkins of...

'Breakfast' macaroni and cheese coming in 2021, says Kraft

Is 'breakfast' macaroni & cheese a thing? What? Kraft says it's a product coming in 2021, unless this is a grotesque food hoax I've somehow fallen for. “Yes please,” or “Just, no”? [ABC News] Excerpt: After hearing that parents would serve their brand of mac & cheese to their children for breakfast, Kraft got in on the act. Kraft is giving away limited-edition Kraft Mac & Cheese Breakfast boxes through Friday. The boxes have special packaging that has "breakfast" written over where it wou...

Pre-Consent in Relationships

One of the most delicious phrases to hear in a sexual encounter is, “You can do whatever you want with me.” Mmmm! That’s a form of pre-consent. In that case it’s perhaps overly broad, and there may be some hidden boundaries to discover along the way, but it really opens the door to less constrained exploration together. Even when pre-consent is more limited, it can speed a connection along towards the more fun and interesting parts. When you’re beginning to explore a new connection with...

Is It Unethical to Have Pets?

Sometimes people ask me about my stance on pets, so I’ll share that in this post. My family had a pet when I was growing up – a rabbit named Cinnamon. Sometimes it roamed freely around the backyard, while other times they kept it in a large cage. I wasn’t the rabbit’s main caregiver. At another time my first wife and I got a kitten. I don’t recall the exact year, but I think it was before we were married. We didn’t have the kitten long though. I found out that I was allergic to cats, so we...

Inviting Disappointment

If you’re active in online discussions, remember to invite discussions on topics that interest you. Don’t just post memes or trivial updates about your life. Don’t just read or respond to other people’s topics. Actually invite discussions to explore and advance what interests you. This may expose a weak social circle or a weak platform. You may feel resistance to inviting such discussions because you know a certain social circle isn’t up to the task. Maybe you’ve tested this a few times...

The Baseline of Order

I live in a gated community with fairly strict standards that all homes have to follow. Anyone who wants to live in the neighborhood must contractually agree to these standards. If anyone falls short of them, they’ll get a letter from the community management association with a request to bring their property up to standard. If they don’t comply, the community association has the authority to fine them and to seek other remedies. We’re not even allowed to park our own cars on the street, only...

Appreciation Density

In the past 11 weeks, I’ve lost an average of 1.15 pounds per week, mainly just by logging what I eat. This simple practice has helped me tweak and adjust my meal choices even though I’m still eating the same foods as I was previously. I’m eating less food in terms of calories, but my current diet is actually more satisfying than before. Since there’s no sense of restriction or deprivation, it’s frictionless to maintain this approach. Let’s say that the appreciation density of a meal is your ...
