On thresholds and discrimination.

It’s not that you just found Paleo, it’s that you’re not sure what to do next. Maybe you’ve been doing Paleo for longer than a month, maybe you just celebrated your first year (mostly) off of gluten, grain, and dairy. You feel good, but you still want to feel better. What do you do now?

On grinding coffee.

If you’re anything like me, you want the best of everything you can buy, touch, taste, smell, and experience.  That means in this case, you’ll want to grind your own coffee fresh for every single cup.  Before you go out and buy a cheap grinder that flogs coffee beans into multivariate oblivion, let’s talk about what your coffee grind objective is.

Systems, lists, and play

There's a list of folks who I pull inspiration from, and in that very listing lies the essence of this idea.  Did those people have systems and lists?  What did those look like, where did they draw the line and stop using linear processes in order to effect their goal, and how did they cultivate that?

Lessons from 2015

Thinking about what advice to give.

What advice would you give your 20 year old self? If you're in your late 30s (like me), your initial reaction might be, "Hey bub, look for the following companies and when they come along, buy their stock: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Uber.
