On Starting

Starting a Project is Thrilling There’s something about that moment – the moment we finally write our ideas on paper – that’s both invigorating and scary. We move from day-dreaming to actualizing and everything seems at once entirely possible and wholly reachable. The goals we set not only excite us by their grandeur, but by the thought of actually reaching them. The moment you write your ideas...

5 Things You MUST Do To Ship Your Project Successfully

Doing the Work I’ve been busy recently… Very busy.

Keep Fighting

When I was a sophomore in college, I tried to do something I wasn’t sure I could do. I decided to compete in the Brigade Open Boxing Tournament. The Brigade Open is an annual event at West Point.  It’s a chance for anyone to enter the ring and compete for a title belt.  It’s open to all students, but the winners are almost always those on the boxing team.

Overcoming Fear and Disrupting the Status Quo

The Creative Process Some days, I know exactly what to write, what to build, and what to develop. Every so often, I’m hit with a rush of ideas as I’m driving home, reading a book, or going for a long run.  The ideas are clear and I know exactly what I need to say, build, or write.

Goal Setting and Closing Doors

A Pause The beginning of every year starts with reflection. We reflect on the past year, on what we’ve done (or not done), on what we’re proud of (or not so proud of), and how we intend to make this year better. When we reflect, it’s common to see a multitude of failures: failure to start, failure to finish, failure to ship.  Sometimes it hurts to think about.  Of course, with the right resolve...

asymmetric goal setting and creating your own luck

We deal with uncertainty, randomness, and luck every day. Every project we undertake is, by its nature, an uncertain endeavor (because it hasn’t been done before – if it had, it would be certain, and there’d be nothing to start). Uncertainty means we can fail. But it also means we can succeed – that there is the potential for success infused in every endeavor, right from the start. If...

audacious goals

  Two months ago I started this website and made a commitment to myself to publish three times a week: Monday, Wednesday and Friday.   The goal for every blog post is simple: to inspire and motivate you (the reader) to create your life’s work.
