Henry, On Hiring

Do not hire a man Quote from Thoreau

Writing without seeing

Hands down, writing this series of blog posts for Armor Guys website was one of the most technically difficult writing assignments that I completed in 2017. Instantly educating yourself about new technology, processes, or in this case an entirely new material can be a challenge, but it’s exciting too.

If you haven’t heard about Graphene yet, I’m sure you will soon…it has the potential to change everything.

6 fascinating people who own almost nothing | MNN – Mother Nature Network

Met these guys the other night in Portland. Envious -to a point- I gotta think it’ll make finding a spouse pretty difficult. And, good luck to them when they have kids too.

No one can do it all, but we can all do something.

2003 vs. 2013 – The same, but different.

Ten years ago, in 2003, my dad celebrated his 56th birthday today…never thinking for an instant that he’d only get to see one more snowstorm, enjoy one more bloom of the crocus in his yard or laugh at one more birthday party of his (then) four year old grandson.

Now, ten years later, I’ll share a thought and a prayer with him today instead of a phone call or visit.

Yet, still, the snow will fall, soon the crocus will bloom, and thankfully, on this day, we are reminded to always celebrate…life.

If you live the life you have imagined, imagine the life you will live.

US gov’t to air-drop toxic mice on Guam snakes

Some guys have the coolest jobs. “Hey, we need someone to figure out a way to get dead mice to land in trees. Anyone got any ideas?”

“To keep the mice bait from dropping all the way to the ground, where it could be eaten by other animals or attract insects as they rot, researchers have developed a flotation device with streamers designed to catch in the branches of the forest foliage, where the snakes live and feed.” The report says.

Train Stops — University of Phoenix – YouTube

I really like everything about this ad. It really works to put a picture in the minds of its target audience. It’s visually interesting. The music is upbeat and the voiceover is confident, yet friendly and helpful. At the end of the day, we do not go to school for the sake of it…or for the sake on learning, in and of itself. We go to learn things so that we can than go to work and get paid for doing the things that we learned for our employer – or for ourselves as entrepreneurs. I’m also relived that the school’s lawyers and purists didn’t force them to muddy up the message with disclaimers and other small print “past performance does not guarantee future results. we don’t promise you’ll get a job with any of these companies. we don’t really drive trains.” etc. Although, I would not be surprised if future versions of this ad eventually do. After all, CYA in business marketing doesn’t mean Creativity You Actually Enjoy.

Well done Phoenix. Just don’t fly too close to the sun.

The Simple Life

This morning, I was
Reminded, as such.
The key to happiness
Doesn’t take much.
It’s simple to say
But hard if you rush.
Be well, do good work
And keep in touch.

(w/ props to Garrison Keillor)
