Jerry Del Colliano Jerry Del Colliano's blog:

When you run a mile, two miles seems better.


When you accomplish all your goals in a day, doing even more somehow seems right.


When you win, you want to keep playing.


You get the idea.


But metrics can also be our enemy.


It’s not how physically fit can you get by reaching certain plateaus; it’s how hea...

Kaj Sotala Kaj Sotala's blog:

There’s a lot of blame and guilt in many people’s lives. We often think of people in terms of good or bad, and feel unworthy or miserable if we fail at things we think we should be able to do. When we don’t do quite as well as we could, because we’re tired or unwell or distracted, we blame and be...

I’m excited - I actually like the editorial process, if I’m also anxious and just a little bit daunted. As yet I don’t know the size of the task that lies before me. Wh...

My polytheist friend was both right and wrong. He was right that Nature does not "care" about us. And he was right that making offerings to the earth and singing the praises of Nature do not avert catastrophe or bring down the blessings of Providence. But I think he was also wrong that Nature wor... Read more of this blog post »

Delivering notes to actors can be a dangerous job. Acting is an emotional profession, and hearing that the choices you’ve made aren’t working can sometimes create tensions or hurt feelings.
