If you’ve seen me in person, there’s a high chance I had earbuds in. If I’m on my own anywhere, I’ll usually be wearing them and listening to an audiobook. I love listening — usually to science fiction, fantasy, business, personal growth, science or other non-fiction books. Over the last few years, this resulted in me listening to a LOT of books. 72 in 2016, 78 in 2015, 44 in ...

Back in 2005, my mom passed away. During the next year, I went through a bunch of different major life events: managing an estate (albeit small), cleaning out my childhood home, fixing it up, selling it, buying a new house, began dating a woman who would eventually become my wife, and moving in together — all while working my first job out of college.

In early 2016, I was traveling to Amsterdam with Marilyn. She was off working, and I was wandering around the town. Early one morning, I woke up and walked over to Albert Cuyp Market, a street market filled with food, stroopwafels, flowers and many other vendors. Enlarge Like usual when I’m alone, I had my headphones in listening to an audiobook. On this day, I had just started Zero to One: ...

Luggage is one of those things that I somehow acquire more of over time. In the years working at my current job, I’ve received no less than 4 pieces of luggage alone! With how much we travel, it’s been difficult to prune luggage down, as I constantly think “I’ll need this if I go on a trip to…”. Lately, I’ve finally pruned these down to a “single” piece of luggage. The ...

Not to be confused with The Medium is the Massage, but when you see something interesting happen — maybe something funny, maybe a beautiful sight, or a something completely unexpected — what is your immediate reaction to do with that newfound knowledge? Based on the mediums you spend your time, you’ll likely have a completely different answer. For myself, I’ve spent entirely too much of the last few years on Twitter ...

In the past I’ve always done these privately on Evernote, but I recently decided to start doing them in public. If you’re curious to read more about the process, here’s what this process looks like.
