Scott Galloway on life

I’m currently* a fan** of Scott Galloway (if you’re a HubShots listener you’ll know we’ve featured him a bit lately). This quick 4 minute video is worth watching: Great life advice from @profgalloway “…people who tell you to follow your passion are already rich…” pic.twitter.com/mWQHL5dre2— Vikas Shah MBE (@MrVikas) December 15, 2019 I wish I’d had...

Roxette singer dies

I’m not sure why some deaths hit me harder than others, but the passing of Roxette’s Marie Fredriksson is particularly sad to me. She had an amazingly successful life yes, but a hard and challenging one also. She fought the fight – that is the game life – particularly well, but was forced to leave much too soon. The Guardian has a good obituary. And I only learned a few...

RIP Lil BUB

I am really sad about Lil BUB passing (announced here on Insta).

But I’m so glad she got an obit on the NYT. She deserved it.

Enter the cave

Face your fears
My wife sent me this and it resonated with some stuff I’m working through at the moment.
So I wanted to note it here- to look back on in a year or so.

My home screen

Another iPhone home screen update (purely for my own interest when I look back on this in years to come):

My only change was to remove Fabulous and replace it with Streaks.

And yes, I have an iPhone SE with a tiny screen. And I love it.

Trust the process?

I’ve been thinking about this lately – how to ensure predictable outcomes. Usual wisdom is to follow a proven process. Seth’s post today notes the process versus the outcome – and it reminded me to consider further: Instead of asking, “how did my team do?” we can begin with, “did the system do what it’s supposed to do?” and The process that gets you answers you want most...

How to be an Introvert in an Extrovert World – Award winning book

My wife (Michele Connolly) has won another award for her wonderful book: How To Be An Introvert In An Extrovert World. As always, you can buy the book on Amazon, and if you want to have your say you can leave a review on Goodreads. It really is an excellent read, useful for both introverts and extroverts. And a reminder, if you’re interested in joining a community of quiet, non-threatening...

Better

“Let’s not confuse getting better at stuff with being a better person. One is a much bigger priority than the other.”

From the October 22 note in The Daily Stoic.

Critical thinking time

Last week I flew up to Brisbane to spend the weekend with my business coach and 9 other businesses (who are also working with him). It was an entire weekend away from day to day stuff, and instead concentrating on future stuff – planning how to grow our respective businesses. I’m pretty dubious about group activities like this – it tends to be the blind leading the blind unless...
