Learn from my mistakes. Believe me when I say this. If I could trade in all the people who know me in real life to be well into the black right now, I’d do it in a heartbeat…

"Man has produced imbalances not only in nature, but, more fundamentally, in his relations with his fellow man and in the very structure of his society. The imbalances man has produced in the natural world are caused by the imbalances he has produced in the social world."
- Murry Bookchin - ‘Post- Scarcity Anarchism' (1986)

Doing something these days I haven’t done since the days before the mass inception (read “takeover”) of social media and smartphones: listening and watching everything I turn on in its entirety without skipping to the good part. Difficulty level: Hard.





I took a photo every 2 minutes over the span of about 2 hours at a 20 second exposure and animated it all together! This 2 second loop was the result!

10 IMPORTANT HARD BUSINESS TRUTHS I’VE LEARNED IN 15 YRS. (1) Success is less about what you know and more about who you know. (2) Never let anyone think that you are comfortable, keep everyone on edge (3) Being agreeable is more acceptable than keeping it 💯 so when you speak your mind prepare to be marginalized (4) Everything is negotiable (5) Learn to master the byproducts of your opportunities. Jobs are temporary but the business relationships you develop and innovation that you ideate are most important. (6) Corporate America has no moral foundation. The business world is the animal kingdom on steroids. Similarly to nature, everyone and everything is replaceable. (7) You must master the art of being both feared and loved. After several conversations with my wife and a few others, my philosophy has shifted from believing that its better to be feared than loved. However I do think that nice guys live more stressful lives in business so its best to be both feared and loved. JayZ is the perfect example of this perspective. People love his chill personality, but fear his past so there is an implied uncrossable line. (8) Power is a drug. Once you get a fix it’s hard to stop the addiction. Job titles and access are the crack pipes. (9) its more important to look busy than to actually produce results. Meetings are the greatest drains of productivity. (10) Believe none of what you see or read. Everything is curated. #WisdomWednrsday
