    • Before and after May 22, 2018
      When you put the right idea into the world, people can't unsee it. It changes our narrative. The existence of your product, service or innovation means that everything that compares to it is now treated differently. Once the fax existed, mail seemed slower. Once email was around, the fax seemed hopelessly analog. Of course, these are once-in-a-lifetime […]
    • Unrequested advice, insufficient data, unexplored objectives May 21, 2018
      Your ideas and your feedback are worth more than you know. But you might not be heard if you haven't been invited to chime in. And you'll waste everyone's time if you base your advice on your assumptions, instead of what's actually happening. Mostly, it's entirely possible that the person you're eager to help doesn't believ […]
    • Accessorials cost extra May 20, 2018
      {not a typo} In the trucking industry, they usually don't include the extra charges, unforeseen or not. "Accessorials" not included. Which often leads to surprise down the road for those that don't expect them. Tonu is another useful lesson. "Truck ordered, not used." Of course, when you ordered the truck, you expected to need i […]
    • Mass personalization is a trap May 19, 2018
      Dear seth , Of course I could have sent you a personal letter. A direct 1:1 connection between you and me, thanking you for what you did, or letting you know about my new project, or asking for your attention. Instead, I'm going to hire someone to hand write the envelope in marker, but of course, I'm too busy to do that myself. And I'll use th […]
    • Are you a genius? May 18, 2018
      In the latest episode of my podcast Akimbo, I riff about what it means to be a genius. Hint: You are one.     PS more people are subscribing every day. It's short, free and sometimes fascinating. All the cool kids are doing it. And two other podcasts for you: Reboot, a fine interview with my dear friend Jerry Colonna. Three Boooks, a new podcast and a f […]

    • 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 […]
