Reflecting on 2022: Exploring, Growing, and Writing

As a year comes to a close I try to round up and reflect a bit on this unit of time. This year marks a milestone in that reflective practice itself, now being the 10th year I have written one of these posts. You can see my reflections at the end of 2021, 2020,  2019,  2018,   2017, 20152014, 2013, and 2012.

I’m a big fan of metacognition, so I get a lot out of taking time to round up, reflect, a

“Innovation is discovery at the intersection of what’s desirable, viable, and feasible.”
Trevor Owens, The Lean Enterprise: How Corporations Can Innovate Like Startups

“How Do You Choose Which Projects to Support? How Do You Prioritize? That’s a problem we look forward to having. We look for who’s most ready to build an MVP. Sometimes it’s very clear what a team aims to build and the issue is having time or support to do it. Those teams are perfect for us to help. On the other hand, we can usually see when someone has an idea that hasn’t really been thought through. Sometimes we recommended that they sign up for LeanStartIN, a two-day internal event where they get help designing their business model and running lean experiments that don’t involve coding. At the end of that experience, they’re usually in a much better place to know what they want to build and test. More than 100 teams have gone through it, and they’ve been successful to the tune of generating $20 million in new revenue in eight months.”
Trevor Owens, The Lean Enterprise: How Corporations Can Innovate Like Startups

“When you wake up in the morning, tell yourself: the people I deal with today will be meddling, ungrateful, arrogant, dishonest, jealous and surly. They are like this because they can't tell good from evil. But I have seen the beauty of good, and the ugliness of evil, and have recognized that the wrongdoer has a nature related to my own - not of the same blood and birth, but the same mind, and possessing a share of the divine. And so none of them can hurt me. No one can implicate me in ugliness. Nor can I feel angry at my relative, or hate him. We were born to work together like feet, hands and eyes, like the two rows of teeth, upper and lower. To obstruct each other is unnatural. To feel anger at someone, to turn your back on him: these are unnatural.”
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
