THE PLAGUE OF PERFECTION

When I notice a minor typo in an email I’ve just sent, I have to continually tell myself to let it go. When I find a typo in a social media post, I immediately edit it. These things don’t really matter, but I still want to get them right. I think about these small mistakes - Read More -

FOR A TABLE TO EXIST

For a table to exist, we need wood, a carpenter, time, skillfulness, and many other causes. And each of these causes needs other causes in order to be. The wood needs the forest, the sunshine, the rain, and so on. The carpenter needs his parents, breakfast, fresh air, and so on. And each of these - Read More -

After I titled my last post (rain love), I had an automatic reaction to create this one :) As it sometimes happens, I had the title and many ideas, but wanted to find an image to pull it all together.

TO BE TRULY FREE

Strange things happen when you’ve been up all night (it’s 4am in China) working on branding strategy while chewing gum (thanks mom/dad!) and eating kale chips (I miss Whole Foods!).
