Batch Blogging

Almost all of the articles I’ve posted this year – or ever, actually – were written on the same day they were published. It’s been my blogging style for the past 16 years to write and edit posts in a single writing session and then to publish them when they’re complete. This year is unusual because it’s the first year that I’ve made a commitment to publish a new post every day of the year, so up until this point, I’ve been writing every day of the year. Very occasionally I’ve written two post...

Your #1 Priority May Lead You Astray

While it’s good to set goals and establish priorities, there’s a risk when you become myopically focused on a single outcome. Single mindedness can be okay for a while if you’re progressing nicely, but if you’ve gotten stuck and the needle isn’t moving, this stuckness can prevent you from making progress in any area of life. And that can really make you feel trapped or stagnant. Have you ever seen the following issues in yourself or someone else? Still needing to lose weight being used ...

Fragile Habits

Some habits are more fragile than others. Once established, some habits are very delicate. If you miss a day or try to alter them, it’s easy to knock them out of place completely and see them fade out. Other habits are more resilient. You can push and prod them, change them in different ways, and they still stick pretty well. At the extreme they act like borderline addictions – it’s harder to stop doing them than to keep doing them. For me early rising is a relatively fragile habit. I n...

Leveraging the Connections You Have Before You Seek New Ones

Networking tips focus too heavily on getting new connections. The rest is impersonally called ”follow-up.” For many this means: schmooze, try to do business, and if you can’t…next! That’s transactional and frankly it’s sad. As a business owner, you need trustworthy connections and partners. True networking is relationship-building, valuing each encounter, and win–winning. You can do this, and it won’t take much time with the right mindset and tools. Get to know the data and the person behind it...

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...

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...

How Jeff Bezos reinvented himself : A Thread

Jeff Bezos is known for tough decisions he has made all through his life. This thread by Dan who worked closely with Jeff Bezos brings some great insights into the thought process of Jeff. 1/ Learn and adapt. Amazon’s second largest business was decimated when Apple digitized the music industry. CD sales had been important to Amazon, but they were dwarfed by book sales. Jeff took the lessons from iPod/iTunes and applied them to Kindle. 2/ Ignore the “institutional no”. Amazon’s core r...

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...

Why artificial intelligence models are often biased, according to the Google exec who heads Alphabet's internal tech incubator Jigsaw

In early March, The Tory Burch Foundation hosted its Embrace Action 2020 Summit, which saw leaders and entrepreneurs from around the world gather to talk about gender parity and inclusion in the workforce.  At the Summit, Bank of America COO Thomas Montag spoke with former AOL CEO Steve Case, Goldman Sachs Partner Dina Powell, and Tory Burch about how their companies aimed to create a more inclusive industry.  Diane von Furstenberg also spoke at the conference, as did Gloria Steinem, former co...

Sexual and Virtuous

Yesterday Rachelle and I watched an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise where the crew goes into the Dark Mirror universe. This alternative universe shows up in multiple Star Trek series and novels. All the characters have identical looking mirror versions with different personalities and values. It’s a place of violence, belligerence, war, and conquest. Imagine waking up in a reality with all the same people, but almost everyone is openly evil. One way to advance in this world is to kill a supe...

Olympian Terin Humphrey: USA Gymnastics ‘discarded me like I was trash’

In the nearly two decades after she helped the U.S. win its first World Championships team title, Terin Humphrey established herself as one of the most influential figures in American gymnastics. Serving on USA Gymnastics’ three-member selection committee for the Olympic and World Championships team, Humphrey played a key role in shaping what emerged as the greatest dynasty in international gymnastics, perhaps in any Olympic sport, this century. “The Second Most Powerful Woman In Gymnastics,” Gy...

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...

‘Rebuilding Paradise’ Looks At Emotional Toll Of Deadly Fire

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Almost two years since a wildfire swept through his mountain town and virtually wiped it out, Steve “Woody” Culleton got to put the final touches on his new home. Two redwood trees were planted in the ground, a new lawn and stone patio transformed the once barren yard into a green refuge. “We’re happy,” he said. “We’re totally home.” The landscaping marked the final chapter of a long ordeal that was captured in “Rebuilding Paradise,” a new documentary directed by Ron Howard ...

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 ...

Trump faces rare rebuke from GOP for floating election delay

By STEVE PEOPLES | AP National Political Writer NEW YORK — President Donald Trump repeatedly tests the Republican Party’s limits on issues including race, trade and immigration. Now he has struck a boundary. GOP officials from New Hampshire to Mississippi to Iowa quickly pushed back against Trump’s suggestion on Thursday that it might be necessary to delay the November election — which he cannot do without congressional approval — because of the unfounded threat of voter fraud. They reassured vo...

How to Extract 5-10x More Value From Your Personal Growth Investments

We’re used to thinking about “receiving value” as a passive endeavor most of the time. We expect items and services that we purchase to provide value to us. We pay the price up front, and then we feel entitled to just relax and enjoy the value we’ve purchased. It’s easy to expect that if you spend the money, your purchase should cough up its full value to you. I paid for you. Now give me what I’m owed. But only some parts of life work that way, like if you buy and enjoy a nice latte. Buyin...

Misinformation On COVID Is Proving To Be Highly Contagious

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — As the world races to find a vaccine and a treatment for COVID-19, there is seemingly no antidote in sight for the burgeoning outbreak of coronavirus conspiracy theories, hoaxes, anti-mask myths and sham cures. The phenomenon, unfolding largely on social media, escalated this week when President Donald Trump retweeted a false video about an anti-malaria drug being a cure for the virus and it was revealed that Russian intelligence is spreading disinformation about the cris...

Caring vs Pretending to Care

One is a squishy, emotional, heartfelt hug with bright, shining smiles. The other is a grayscale photocopy of a hug photo. Visually they’re both easily identifiable as hugs. Experientially they’re vastly different, and when given, they land very differently with the receiver. Pretending to care can still lead to a contribution, albeit one bereft of dimensionality. Some people may semi-appreciate the gesture, perhaps seeing it as a better than nothing. You may get a few pats on the back,...

Society’s Warning Signs

Las Vegas doesn’t get a lot of rain – about four inches per year – but when it does rain here, it sometimes comes down in torrents. Homeless people have been known to sleep in the city’s drainage areas and have been been washed away and drowned during heavy rains. My ex-wife was involved in coordinating local search teams to find the bodies. I’ve seen signs posted near these drainage areas, warning of the dangers. But some people either don’t read them or ignore them, and they occasionally lo...

Wills Wing Sport 3 Review

Aaron writes: After spending some time getting used to how the Wills Wing Sport 3 flies, as well as discussing the characteristics with others who have flown them, I felt compelled to write up my impressions about it. I have always been a fan of the glider reviews that Dennis Pagen would do for Hang Gliding magazine, and I always put a lot of stock in what he would present. This won’t be in that same vein, however, because there’s only one Dennis Pagen, and I am not him. These ar...

Your Weekly Priority Card

When you have a lot of quarterly goals, it can be tricky to keep them prioritized, especially since priorities can shift as you go through the quarter. So it’s good to have a reliable practice to refocus your attention on your top priorities. One simple practice I’ve been using lately is to create a priority card at the start of each week. It’s just an index card with my top priorities for the week listed on it. I keep it near my desk and normally review it to begin each workday, along with r...
