Nothing

I have nothing to give. I have nothing to give you. I have nothing to give you but my love. I have nothing to give you but my love and devotion. I have nothing to give you but my love, devotion, and my attention. I have nothing to give you but my love, devotion, attention, […]

Real Writers

Have you ever wanted something so bad, like SO BAD, but you just couldn’t figure out how to get started? I mean, like if they just had a tutorial or something, but even that’s not working, and you just want into the club so hard? I’ve been there. Barrier to Entry I wanted to make […]

Goals and Focus

I’ve talked ad nauseum over the years about goals, personal development, and what I think it takes to achieve goals. I’ve talked about a willingness to be terrible in the beginning, the decision to dedicate time to getting better, and the elimination of distractions in the pursuit of improvement. One thing I struggle with, and […]

Forever

If you and I had forever, would we use it wisely? Would we, knowing that we had the time, plan ahead, get and stay ahead? Would we slow our lives down, end the mad rush to be on time, make the best use of time, stop feeling the press of its weight on our shoulders […]

Christmas Music

Well, it’s that time of year. I’ve been mucking around on the guitar and I finally got comfortable with “What Child Is This?” to record both parts and mix them together. There’s some awkwardness, and my timing isn’t as good as it probably should be but I hit all the notes right finally. Lemme know […]

Job Hunting

This is one of those catch-up posts where, normally, I’d apologize for not posting more often, wring my hands, and hope that you’ll forgive me. But it turns out that I’m not worried so much anymore about posting on a schedule or making sure that I have something up. I don’t really know how many […]

Books of 2015

I’m not possessed of enough free time to go over all the books I read this year. There are like 67 of them or something, and I don’t really feel like it. I’d rather be reading books than to write about all of them. Frankly, some of them aren’t worth it. But I wanted to […]

Cutting My Losses

Have you ever had a brain fart of such magnitude that you worry you were hit on the head and didn’t notice, or maybe there’s something pressing on your brain and you experience periodic memory loss? My mother-in-law calls them senior’s moments, but I don’t think I’m old enough for that yet. Taking a Spin […]

Me and the Double-B

A Brief History of Time Robb Reid (a.k.a, the Double-B) and I have worked together on and off since 2008, and on the auspicious occasion of his first day at a new job, I figured that I would chronicle our adventures together. 2008 – A Meeting of the Minds I started at Haemonetics, after leaving […]

Attrition

2005 Sean had just started up his blog, Earl’s blog was going strong, and I decided to throw my hat into the ring as well. I’d been doing some reading, and In The Now seemed like a good name. Kim joined in the fun, as did Rob and Krista. There was a strong community of […]
