What would Oprah do? 8 (fun!) strategic planning questions.

Dearest Fire Starter, At the end of last year, I gathered Team D to envision the flourishing future of The Desire Map offerings. The point of this jam session was: a) to stir our collective, creative genius; b) build our connection/synergy—and have some fun. From there, we’d map out an actual strategy for the next 18 – 24 months. I sent out some creative questions to get us uncorked. It worked! We generated some beautiful new ideas, a lot of vision clarity, and we knew each other even ...

How to read fiction to build a startup

“The book itself is a curious artefact, not showy in its technology but complex and extremely efficient: a really neat little device, compact, often very pleasant to look at and handle, that can last decades, even centuries. It doesn’t have to be plugged in, activated, or performed by a machine; all it needs is light, a human eye, and a human mind. It is not one of a kind, and it is not ephemeral. It lasts. It is reliable. If a book told you something when you were 15, it will tell it to you aga...

Each month I look forward to seeing the variety of true stories that come to my attention. While I love nonfiction, I don't read everything.

8 Ways to Let Go of Mistakes

No one likes to mess up. But for those of us with a mix of obsessive-compulsive disorder and perfectionism, we can become debilitated by the guilt and regret following a blunder. Our brains are stuck on the stupidity of our actions, rehashing the events as if doing so will change what happened. How do you break free this painful loop of regret? After reading through a dozen self-help books on this topic and talking with people who have learned how to get beyond their errors, I compiled these ei...

The Value of Our Mistakes

None of us like to fail. But some of us find it especially difficult to rebound from a mistake. We beat ourselves up for months, even years, rehashing our blunder.

However, with time, we often discover that our failures are packed full of blessings, that our errors open doors to surprising opportunities. Even if they don’t lead us to fame and fortune, our mistakes make us better people. April Fool’s! Or Not T...

Democrats start to throw their hats, not their ideas, into the ring

“… political campaigns are designed by the same people who sell toothpaste and cars.” – Noam Chomsky As you Democrats load up your clown car for the three-ring circus we call the presidential primaries, the key is to differentiate yourself. Trump did it with the 17 RINO clones against whom he ran. The key for liberals is to take social stands on things about which no one cares — fashionable worries like the plight of illegal immigrants, global warming, toxic masculinity and abolishing the Electo...
