Which book should I read next?

January 31, 2015

I want to read more in 2015, and I’ll give myself a B- so far. I basically spent January finishing off a few books that I had slacked off on over the years, and I’m just about finished with the last one: Creativity, Inc. It’s just about time for me to pick the next one. Below are books […]

No to-do system can be a substitute for discipline

January 28, 2015

I’ve been analyzing various to-do processes and applications for some time. Here are just some recent examples of things I’ve written about in this vein. But I’ve come to an important realization lately: No system is going to make you more productive. It’s your mindset and your ability to be disciplined that allow you to get […]

5 startup questions I was asked at the Founders Institute event last night

January 22, 2015

Last night I spoke at a Founders Institute meetup located at FortyFour, a digital agency that a few friends of mine run.

My Serial verdict

January 15, 2015

Alright, I have to weigh in on Serial (the greatest podcast ever). If you haven’t listened to Serial yet, put down your Palm Pilot and download it immediately! Plus, the rest of this won’t make any sense ;) I’ve had discussions with a lot of my friends about who they think killed Hae Min Lee, and […]

Let’s abolish voicemail, who’s coming with me?

January 12, 2015

I feel like Jerry Maguire when he’s leaving the firm for the last time: I really despise voicemail. It’s a huge hassle and there are better ways to leave someone a message these days. In lieu of just deleting voicemail altogether (that seems kind of harsh), I just changed my voicemail to this: Hi, sorry […]

I’ve switched to the iPhone 6+! The why and how of it.

January 9, 2015

Ah, here we go. I’m back to the iPhone. To recap… I was an initial iPhone guy, even at times a self-proclaimed Apple Fanboy. Then as Android started improving, I become Google-curious. Then a year ago I switched over to Android after I fell in love with the Nexus 5. And for the last year, […]

How I learned about Stuart Scott and what it means for the future of media

January 7, 2015

Stuart Scott was a broadcaster at ESPN. Arguably one of the best, I remember him as the guy who always got the Jordan interviews. Therefore, he was my guy. Sadly, he lost his battle with cancer this weekend. He will be missed. The way I found out about his passing was I think indicative of […]

Here’s an awesome, heart warming initiative #reimagineatl

January 4, 2015

One thing I’ve learned over the past several years as I’ve spent more time studying and supporting non-profits, is that awareness of an issue is a huge barrier. The more people are exposed to things, the more they understand the problems in the world and feel compelled to help. I went through an intense, eye-opening experience […]

Hm, feels like time for some resolutions

December 29, 2014

Yep, Christmas is over and New Years is fast approaching, so it feels like the right time for some resolutions for 2015. Side note: This drives my wife nuts, but I get equally as excited about the holiday season coming as I do with the holiday season ending. And not because I don’t completely enjoy the […]

Let’s help the Boys & Girls Club! Oh, and I met Shaq.

December 17, 2014

This post is a long time coming. Ever since my good friend took a job at the Boys & Girls Club (donate!), my eyes have been opened to the wonderful things they do at that organization. I knew peripherally with B&GC did, but wasn’t fully aware of how awesome this organization was. And then I […]
