SpaceX ready to launch NASA astronauts, back on home turf

By MARCIA DUNN CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida — A SpaceX rocket is ready to boost two NASA astronauts into orbit Wednesday, the first launch of Americans from the U.S. in nearly a decade.

Your defining moment

It’s easy to wait for it. The movies have taught us that when the music swells and the chips are down, that’s when leaders arrive and when heroes are made. It turns out, that’s not how it works. Our work is what happens in all the moments. Leadership doesn’t simply appear when the script announces it does: it is the hard work of showing up when we’re not expected to, of seeing what’s possible when few are willing to believe. Your defining moment is whenever you decide it is, and you get a new ch...

A small business isn’t simply a little version of a big business

Fewer meetings, fewer resources, fewer constraints. The biggest advantage that a small business has is that the owner can look customers in the eye. And vice versa. Instead of policies, groupthink and leverage, the way forward for a small business might be the very thing that fueled you in the start: find out what people need and help them get it. Right away. It’s never been easy to be a small business and it’s even more difficult right now. But resilience and flexibility go together. The first ...

Can Remote Work Be Fixed? My Latest Article For The New Yorker

Earlier today, I published my latest article for the New Yorker. It’s titled: Can Remote Work Be Fixed? In this semi-epic long-form essay, I dive into the history of the remote work movement, documenting why, after decades of excitement, it ended up falling short of its potential. I then tackle the big question on a lot of peoples’ mind at the moment: Now that all knowledge workers are forced to work remotely, will we manage to fix these issues? Now that it’s urgent, in other words, can we make...

Quick, No One is Looking, Put These EOS Lip Balms On Your Cheeks

EOS Shea + Shade Color Tinted Lip Balms launched a few months ago and I forgot that I purchased two shades. There they were sitting in my beauty closet all lonely and stuff until I pulled them out this morning and was like, “OOooooo how did I forget about you?” After tearing them open I realized quickly this was going to turn into a Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Cheek Flush situation. I decided against using them on my mouth and instead I whipped out a fiber brush, dipped it into the lip balm...

Black man dies after video shows officer kneeling on neck

By AMY FORLITI MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A black man who died in police custody in Minneapolis was seen on a bystander’s video pleading that he could not breathe as a white officer knelt on his neck during the arrest and kept his knee there for several minutes after the man stopped moving. The death Monday night after a struggle with officers was under investigation by the FBI and state law enforcement authorities. It drew comparisons to the case of Eric Garner, an unarmed black man who died in 2014 in...

Transformation on pandemics: what’s really new?

There’s plenty to do when it comes to real digital innovation in a rush moment, but some good stuff is on the verge of becoming a trend. A lot has been said lately about the potential changes in the world in consequence of pandemics. Mostly when it comes to digital acceleration on all our human relations, I’d be willing to believe that it could be true. However, right after the opening of some countries concerning Covid-19, we’ve seen a rush to physical stores that didn’t last long thoug...

Several people have asked what blogs or other media might be worth turning to after Overlawyered ceases posting this weekend.

It’s also true that a lot of activity that was once on blogs is now on Twitter, and Twitter isn’t for everyone. What are som...

Craftspeople and time

Tell us when you’re going to finish. Tell us if you fall behind. Don’t make us ask. It’s difficult for a small organization or a dedicated craftsperson to run an operation as punctually as a large bureaucracy. After all, the bureaucracy exists mainly to be sure that deadlines are honored and variances are not exceeded. Your customers are aware of this. It’s one reason that they chose you–because you’re doing the work yourself, you’re a person, not an industry. Don’t hide this unless you can hide...
