Gantt charts are a symptom of a disease. They're like an alcoholic's first DUI. But if you're a startup with a product/engineering team of 5, they're like an alcoholic's first DUI at 16.

I need to not care

As I drove to my chiropractor a driver next to be appeared to be changing lanes into me. I honked. They didn't move, still 10 to 15 percent in my lane, they just stayed in that position. A block later they would suddenly veer left into a parking lot to...

Bullets

I'm listening to Chuck Palahniuk's Consider This. It makes me want to write, just like Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird did. It's more tactical, so it makes me think about the unfinished drafts, the first drafts, the second drafts all sitting around taunting me. I listen to it in the...

Getting it from all the sides
Everything falling down

From Morning Pages

I've thought more about Cal Newport's lifestyle-centric planning lately after a segment in his podcast. I have to think really high level and vague about that lifestyle to do it, as the realities of my current situation--family, house, all the costs associated with both--make it hard to imagine a simpler...

Progress on...

De-Googling has stalled or backtracked. Overall: the inertia + the fact that I don't care enough is making the cost-benefit analysis on this project fall below threshold

Imagining

I like my GP doctor. For some reason, I imagine her husband as a high-school math teacher. Maybe at a private school. Or an accountant.

Traffic in Dallas has become absurd. It feels like everyone is really not in a hurry or in an extreme hurry. I imagine each of...

The Passion, 2001

It was a strange time, 2001. It was even stranger in the city. Nowhere else could you find such a diversity of things and people smashed into such a small geographic location. The variety of smells, sights, tastes, and feelings made for a strange integration unlike any other experience available...

Opportunistic Bullshit Economy

Jenny woke up with something new (to her) on the brain. She swung her legs gingerly out from under the duvet and spread her toes on the hardwoods. With a brief detour to press the coffeemaker’s β€œon” button, she settled at the computer. The Idea Copyright Database website was in...
