Triumphs & Fails

  • Carol's Triumph: Her college freshman son, majoring in computer science, called mom to ask for comp-sci help!
  • Ben's Fail: R&D effort exposed that he doesn't remember how to start a new project any more.   
  • Tim's Triumph: He turned in the paperwork to get his team their raises on time.
  • Adam's Triumph: Testing on a new platform for his giant application has reached 100%, and a looming deadline may actually be met.


Notes & Links

  • We are not medical professionals! If you need help, talk to your primary care physician.
  • Sisyphus
  • Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs
  • Adam's waterproof Bluetooth shower speaker recommendation. This one isn't particularly special. There are dozens of different cheap Chinese speakers that look just like it. He's had three over the years, but they're all plenty decent.
  • The Spoon Theory by Christine Miserandino
  • TED Talk: Your elusive creative genius by Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love.
  • Chuck Close: Inspiration is for amateurs - the rest of us just show up and get to work. And the belief that things will grow out of the activity itself and that you will - through work - bump into other possibilities and kick open other doors that you would never have dreamt of if you were just sitting around looking for a great "art idea". And the belief that process, in a sense, is liberating and that you don't have to reinvent the wheel every day. Today, you know what you'll do, you could be doing what you were doing yesterday, and tomorrow you are gonna do what you did today, and at least for a certain period of time you can just work. If you hang in there, you will get somewhere.
