Always best at the beginning, right?


This past weekend I attended my very first Maine Romance Writers Retreat and conference in Portland, Maine.  I was not only lucky enough to be a participant, but a presenter as well. What a won...

Robert J. Shiller Robert J. Shiller's blog:
Practically no one, outside of computer science departments, can explain how cryptocurrencies work, and that mystery creates an aura of exclusivity, gives the new money glamour, and fills devotees with revolutionary zeal. None of this is new, and, as with past monetary innovations, a seemingly co... Read more of this blog post »

Ryan Holiday Ryan Holiday's blog:

The vast majority of successful people who ever lived are people you’ve never heard of. If we are to drill down further and consider happy successful people, it’s almost certain that we haven’t heard of them.


The reason for that is something called the survivorship bias. Only a very small number o...

My dad called… I was distracted. I should always remember that having half an eye on Buddy (even if it looks like he’s sitting down and drawing nicely) is not enough. He needs two eyes on him at all times. Always two!

Sitting on the banks of the Song River, the rural town might seem serene now. But Vang Vieng has seen a tumultuous 15 years, evolving from an agricultural community to a hedonistic party capital when it was “discovered” by Western shoestring travelers in the late 1990s. Excessive drinking, drugs,... Read more of this blog post »

I was very glad to be visiting the Charleston branch of the family this weekend (photos below), but also sorry that it meant I’d miss the fantastic rose petal shower at the Cathedral of St. Paul here in Birmingham.

One of the things that surprised me when researching Deep Work was how rare it was to find examples of smart people talking coherently about the process of effective thinking.

His answer is great. It also got me thinking about something else I would add to what John says: that visible miracles are reminders of the reality of greater invisible m...
