Going the extra mile is a flawed concept

Emirates Skywards
This trip will be old news by the time this post goes live on May 28.

Going the extra mile is a flawed concept and what to do instead.

This is what the TED Talk covered.

American University of Kuwait (AUK) is the host venue.

The speech is a month away and then a month after the speech, this post gets published. Weird. And cool.

Five Daily Blogs, Seriously?

One week to impossibly impossible

home office
Yesterday morning with the sun shining brightly from the East.
Hey mic and iPhone setup
Couple nights ago i attempted to synch bluetooth devices. Didn’t work. Was still able to record my first rough-draft speech template for an audience of 12, at a senior citizen care facility.

One week to impossibly impossible.

April Fools Day, 2009, remember?

When i do the TED Talk in five weeks, will the world record be official by then? Will i mention it? Guessing no on both questions.

What’s more impossible, getting invited to Kuwait to deliver a TEDx Talk, or setting a world record for most blog posts written by a single author?

Today, March 24, 2019, neither. But had you asked five, 10, 15 years ago, easy answer would have been an emphatic, “Guaranteed impossible!”

Honey, It's For You

Before i die i want to ___________

 

Context from You Tube: In her New Orleans neighborhood, artist and TED Fellow Candy Chang turned an abandoned house into a giant chalkboard asking a fill-in-the-blank question: “Before I die I want to ___.” Her neighbors’ answers — surprising, poignant, funny — became an unexpected mirror for the community. (What’s your answer?)

 

Fill in the blank…

Before i die i want to ___________.

Dreams, dreams, dreams

What if we spent as much effort (time, money, resources) as we invest in technology? What if we spent it on figuring out how to live unafraid of our wildest dreams

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
