I just started Relentless: From Good to Great to Unstoppable (amazon affiliate link). The book is written by Tim Grover, the trainer for, among other people, Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant (my thoughts on Kobe vs Jordan). Point being, Grover knows what he’s talking about. There were two quotes within the first few pages I wanted to share quickly: If you’re relentless, there is no halfway, no could or should or maybe.

In short: My motives … Continue reading
Though it’s been several years, I’ve written about news consumption habits before. When it comes to news nowadays, I don’t really consume any of it. At least, not mainstream news. Why? The vast, vast majority of news is in-actionable. If something is ultra important, I’ll hear about it on Twitter or Facebook (or in person). There are only so many hours in the day, and, particularly as a co-founder of a very early stage company, I need to focus my time and energy on initiatives that further my business. If something is not furthering my knowledge, relationships, or business, I view that as part of the time suck economy (more on that here) and choose not … Continue reading
