    • What if scale wasn't the goal? March 28, 2017
      From restaurants to direct mail, there's pressure to be scalable, to be efficient, to create something easily replicated. Which is often used as the reason it's not very good. "Well, we'd like to spend more time/more care/more focus on this, but we need to get bigger." What if you started in the other direction? What would happen if […]
    • Unselling March 27, 2017
      Getting someone to switch to you is totally different from getting someone who's new to the market to start using the solution you offer. Switching means: Admitting I was wrong, and, in many cases, leaving behind some of my identity, because my tribe (as I see them) is using what I used to use. So, if you want to get a BMW motorcycle owner to buy a Harl […]
    • Toward civilization March 26, 2017
      If war has an opposite, it's not peace, it's civilization. (inspired by Ursula LeGuin writing in 1969) Civilization is the foundation of every successful culture. It permits us to live in safety, without being crippled by fear. It's the willingness to discuss our differences, not to fight over them. Civilization is efficient, in that it permit […]
    • Holding your breadth March 25, 2017
      It's tempting to diversify, particularly when it comes to what you offer the world. One more alternative, one more flavor, one more variation. Something for everyone. We get pushed to smooth out the work, make it softer, more widely applicable. More breadth, though, doesn't cause change, and it won't get you noticed. Focus works. A sharp edge […]
    • Seriously vs. personally March 24, 2017
      Professionals take their work seriously. The work matters, the impacts and externalities are real. On the other hand, we can't take it personally. When someone rejects an idea, or if a project doesn't succeed, we've learned a valuable lesson about strategy and about tactics, but it's not a reflection on our worth as a human.         […]

    • 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 […]
