Debugging my frustration: Insecure and impatient.

ok let’s see, what are actually frustrating me now too little time to actually sit down and finish a discussion, understand, decide, execute properly, develop a mature plan things not moving fast enough, needing approval, get people on the same page but also moving too fast at the same time, each week passed so quickly.…

[things I came across] RE:Silos and communication within organisation

want to update / resume this series http://proses.id/problem-solving-challenge/ https://twitter.com/this_hits_home/status/1431407312724324355?s=20 Maybe I’m discrediting myself but I consider of the most high leverage things I’ve done, the hard part was wrangling all the people to talk to one another and documenting. Is “breaking down silos” just talking to people? Why I hate the phrase “breaking down silos”…

What does being rich means to you?

Read this yesterday https://www.collaborativefund.com/blog/the-highest-forms-of-wealth/ Controlling your time and the ability to wake up and say, “I can do whatever I want today.” When money becomes like oxygen: so abundant relative to your needs that you don’t have to think about it despite it being a critical part of your life. A career that allows for…

we’re just tired

it gets better I’ve heard that phrase used a lot in the context of encouraging people struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts, IIRC especially popular in LGBTQ circles. only recently that phrase resonated with me.

Post sabbatical quick reflection

3 full weeks back at work. 15 work days. lost all trace of the natural pace I managed to slowly ease back into. the unhurried life. the unpunctuated life. the life without expectations. poof. the mental bugs are still solved and mental refactors are still holding up. the perspective and energy are still there. haven’t…

Sensory refeeds

Why does digital detox work? The simple explanation is “because social media is bad”. Let’s unpack that. My current take is that digital detox works because (and if) unplugging forced us to 1) engage our other senses and 2) calibrate our perception against reality. Both are somewhat obvious points but let me use this post…

36 soon

I’ll be 36 in 4 months. I think I did well. I did fairly decent job at this thing called life. I didn’t cause any harm to my loved ones’ lives. physically, mentally, emotionally I think I have taken good care of these of those I love and care for. I had some glory, nice…
