You’ll Never Make Up For Your Past

3765c625
For most of my life, I tried to "get back to" an imagined time where I felt like I was at this incredible pinnacle. I can name every point in my life where I felt I'd reached new heights: Summer '93, Summer '96, Summer '98, Summer '00, Summer '02, Spring '08, Fall '10, and a surreal two-year stretch between Summer '14 and Spring '16. At each peak, ...

Isn't it great when good writing advice overlaps with good overall advice to life? ​ I'll take specificity as an example. One thing that makes a piece really great to read is when the writer uses specifics well. ​ So, instead of writing… ​  The boy loved going to Grandma's house. ​ She writes… ​  Every time the boy saw that...

Leonardo da Vinci: How to See the World Like Nobody Else

72l_nlax1zq-flash-bros
In late 2017, Salvator Mundi , one of Leonardo da Vinci's paintings, sold for $450.3 million. ​ For a child born out of wedlock in the 15th century, that's quite an accomplishment. And yet, many would argue that this isn't even close to being his greatest contribution to humanity. ​ When the word "Renaissance" is spoken, no one comes to mind faster...

Founding Myths are Pernicious Propaganda

pexels-photo-397219
Every startup has its founding myth, the story that it uses to help draw in and motivate employees, customers, and investors. In most cases, those myths were cultured years after the company's founding, and bear little relationship to reality. When you dig deeply into a company's true origins, what initially looked like the product of far-sighted g...

Don’t waste your time with passion

photo-1420393000485-4697383da9ec
This was not the first dinner with a hopeful startup founder seeking my advice that would come to a point like this. Nor the last. ​ I knew I would have to explain it another way.

Why Science Is Wrong

photo-1430965914765-930206c18c13
In 1894, Albert Michelson predicted that there were no discoveries left to be made in physics. ​ He's remembered as the first American to win the Nobel Prize in the field, and he wasn't the only one to think so.

Why your programmers just want to code
