Kindness in Tea Culture

Take it easy, she said. A-Yi, a middle-aged Taiwanese woman, rushed us out the door. Go eat! Enjoy! Thirty seconds earlier we sat at her table and enjoyed the two different teas that she prepared for us. I tried to pay, but she wouldn‘t have it. Take it easy. Odd behavio

How Hard Do I Actually Work?

Once in a while people who meet me give me the feedback that they‘re surprised that I‘m actually a real person who doesn‘t just work 24/7. A challenge of being a public writer is balancing giving useful information versus giving an accurate picture. I think a lot of the

Superhuman 2 Event

As I mentioned before, Superhuman #1 went extremely well. Everyone left not only with actionable steps to reach their goals, but also with connections to some other really great people. I was a little bit exhausted by the end, but it was really a great experience to get

I often get asked how I make friends with so many great people. This is sort of a funny question because I think most people actually don‘t know just how great my friend group is, since they only know a few people who are well known. So in a way, it‘s an ever better ques

How I Spend Time on Cruises
