Correction Canary

Thu, 02 Mar 2017 20:49:53 +0000

About fifteen years ago now, I was reorganizing how search results are displayed in a popular travel site (one you’ve probably used). The goal of the project was to to increase readability and scannability. To do this, I needed to move a few bits of information around. In my rush to prepare the prototype for…

Switching Costs

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 21:22:55 +0000

In CBS’s world adventure race program ‘The Amazing Race’ there’s a game element called the ‘Detour’. The ‘Detour’ is a team activity requiring completion before continuing on the race itself. Each ‘Detour’ includes two activities – each team needs to select one from an opaque two- or three-word description of each. The goal is to…

Both – or the Underly Deceit of Focus

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 21:20:14 +0000

As I write this, I’m slowly, steadily, recovering from a running injury. Pain so bad in my right knee that it’s painful to walk and stand. A visit to the sports chiropractor diagnosed the problem as a lack of flexibility in my left hip. The right-side of my body continually compensated for this lack of flexibility,…

To a Stronger Second Half

Thu, 05 Jan 2017 21:23:39 +0000

It’s the first week of a January 2017. I’d like to raise a glass of my homebrew to the new year. When I crack open the bottle and pour it gently, perfectly into a glass half the size of the bottle, it’ll be brilliantly clear. So clear you can see the other side of the…

A blank canvas A surgical studio The color of healing The color of health The birthplace of progress The backdrop of achievement The commitment to beginning Again

I am Silver

I am a clean tomorrow reflecting back a soiled today. I am as much a solution as a problem. I am the color of Definitively Solved.

Where are You in Your Calendar?

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 16:37:43 +0000

Your email inbox is one thing. Other than turning the spam filter to 11, having an unguessable address, and or sending everything to dev/null – if you have an email address – it’s going to receive email. Your email inbox is, painfully, for others. You’re calendar is something completely different. Nothing goes on your calendar…

The Before 2020 List

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 15:45:03 +0000

A few years back, when the weather wasn’t conducive for playing kubb outside, I started a mindful meditation practice. It quickly provided me much the same mind calming benefit indoors as kubb does outdoors. After steadily building a daily practice for about a year, my schedule shifted, my priorities shifted. Today my practice is much…

Estimate 2x the 1st Time

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 14:32:17 +0000

Over the weekend, I replaced a broken bulb in my van’s tail lights. The van told me which one was broken. A quick YouTube search told me how to fix it, and a quick Google search told me the part number. Easy. So, I headed to my neighborhood auto parts store and picked up a…
