Kicked out of Colombia again

As I write this, I’m waiting for my ride to the airport. This is the third emergency trip I’ve taken out of Colombia in the past three weeks. But this time, I can’t return until 2019. My second attempt at applying for an investor visa was reje...

“The user experience design of a product essentially lies between the intentions of the product and the characteristics of your user.”
David Kadavy, Design for Hackers: Reverse Engineering Beauty

“There is one final way that we prevent ourselves from starting, and it’s the strongest and most dangerous force of all. It’s perfectionism, and I’m so grateful I was able to overcome it in that moment. As I said, “I’m glad I decided to just jump into it.”
David Kadavy, The Heart To Start: Win the Inner War & Let Your Art Shine

“My first blog post sucked. My next blog post sucked. I have written dozens and dozens of sucky blog posts, and I can only hope that I will continue to do work that sucks until the day I die. Because it’s in the process of doing that bad work that the good work comes out. Singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran said that he writes four or five songs a day when he’s working on an album. He says, “if you turn a dirty tap on it’s going to flow shit water for a substantial amount of time, and then clean water’s going to start flowing.” Hemingway had a similar philosophy. He said, “I write one page of masterpiece to ninety-one pages of shit.”
David Kadavy, The Heart To Start: Win the Inner War & Let Your Art Shine

“People who truly have control over time always have some in their pocket to give to someone in need. A sense of priorities drives their use of time and it can shift away from the ordinary work that’s easy to justify, in favor of the more ethereal, deeper things that are harder to justify. They protect their time from trivia and idiocy; these people are time rich. They provide themselves with a surplus of time. They might seem to idle, or relax more often than the rest, but that just might be a sign of their mastery, not their incompetence.”
Scott Berkun, Mindfire

“We have advantages. We have a cushion to fall back on. This is abundance. A luxury of place and time. Something rare and wonderful. It's almost historically unprecedented. We must do extraordinary things. We have to. It would be absurd not to.”
Dave Eggers, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius

“We feel that to reveal embarrassing or private things, we have given someone something, that, like a primitive person fearing that a photographer will steal his soul, we identify our secrets, our past and their blotches, with our identity, that revealing our habits or losses or deeds somehow makes one less of oneself. ”
Dave Eggers, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius

“The user experience design of a product essentially lies between the intentions of the product and the characteristics of your user.”
David Kadavy, Design for Hackers: Reverse Engineering Beauty

“Most people don't grow up. Most people age. They find parking spaces, honor their credit cards, get married, have children, and call that maturity. What that is, is aging.”
Maya Angelou
