Just found out our friend and neighbor John died. Way too soon (only 10 years older than I). Enjoyed many a wonderful evening at his place. Made a mean martini.

A reminder to make as many of your soons and somedays into right nows and todays as often as you can.

The silence of the blog // Vincent Ritter

You see, I love working on things behind the scenes. I love it because I get to touch a handful of people’s lives in a meaningful way. I don’t need to blog about it… all I need to do is bring myself and deliver what I do. That’s it.

The things one makes can speak for themselves.

Why you need a “WTF Notebook”

Every time I join a new team, I go to the next fresh page, and on top of that page I write: “WTF – [Team Name].” Then I make a note every time I run into something that makes me go “wtf,” and a task every time I come up with something I want to change.

This is brilliant.

I have a similar thing I do from time to time with building a list of things that need to get done around the house. I go to each room, sit down, and simply ask myself, “What’s broken?”

Results in a pretty comprehensive actionable list.
