Beware of Biographers

Beware of Biographers

A Clear, Condensed View of Creative Obstacles

A Clear, Condensed View of Creative Obstacles

Condensation slows time, simplifies and reduces details, and freezes processes to a small set of steps. All of this gives us a …

The Curse of the Too Early Opportunity

The Curse of the Too Early Opportunity

Obviously, I have nothing against people getting opportunities.  However, let me caution you about a type of opportunity that you might want to pass up.

Don’t Watch Limitless

Don’t Watch Limitless

Your eyes won’t explode but the effect is worse.  Limitless, a 2011 semi-mystery movie, will explode your: will, focus, expectations, and set back your maturity.
