    • Valuing hygiene factors August 21, 2017
      A hygiene factor is something you miss when it's gone, but barely notice when it's there. Clean sheets at a hotel, for example. The base salary at a job. Your title. Every time you add one of these factors to consumer or employee expectation, you've signed up for a lifetime of providing that benefit. You've made it more difficult for the […]
    • Preparing (for the test of time) August 20, 2017
      We have a word for the fruitless search for perfect: perfectionism. And we have a word for what we do when we dumb something down to get approval: the committee. But what do we call it when we work to make something important? Something that will last? And be worth the effort? It's tempting to treat things as disposable, to call it a temporary fix, to d […]
    • The problem with direct experience August 19, 2017
      "I'll know it when I see it," or perhaps, "I'll see it when I know it..." We're hardwired to believe and understand the things we can actually experience. That's why no one argues about Newton's laws, but most people panic or shrug when confronted with dark matter, Heisenberg or quarks. We're often good at ac […]
    • Faux intimacy August 18, 2017
      True connection is a frightening prospect. When you are seen by someone else, really seen, it hurts even more if you're ultimately rejected. When we connect, we make promises, buy into a different future, engage with another, someone who might let us down (or we might let them down). Far easier, of course, to do something more shallow. A friend on socia […]
    • "I have fear" August 17, 2017
      There's a common mistranslation that causes us trouble. We say, "I am afraid," as if the fear is us, forever. We don't say, "I am a fever" or "I am a sore foot." No, in those cases, we acknowledge that it's a temporary condition, something we have, at least for now, but won't have forever. "Right now, I […]

    • Menace October 2, 2013
      Power is intoxicating. Everyone loves having the ability to make their decisions into reality — to think "this should be something that happens," and then actually be able to make that thing happen. It is also dangerous. And it is especially dangerous when applied to four-year-olds. Four-year-olds lack the experience to wield power responsibly. The […]
    • Depression Part Two May 9, 2013
      I remember being endlessly entertained by the adventures of my toys. Some days they died repeated, violent deaths, other days they traveled to space or discussed my swim lessons and how I absolutely should be allowed in the deep end of the pool, especially since I was such a talented doggy-paddler. I didn't understand why it was fun for me, it just was. […]
    • Pre-Post Transition Post May 9, 2013
      This isn't a real post. I'm going to post the real post tomorrow. But it feels like there should be some sort of intermediate thing to prepare everyone for the abrupt change of speed ahead. Here's a picture of an airplane. I realize that airplanes don't look like that, but this has been a hard year for me and learning how to draw planes a […]
