Now

I read Shawn Blanc’s Now page, which refers to Derek Sivers Now page, so I’ll put mine up periodically.

I’ve added a category called Now so I can find the blog posts again, and a page called Then, to find the old Now posts.

This Now post is dated 11 November, 2017

Thinking about
Recruiting, training, and how to propagate a good company culture across locations so you get siblings instead of clones. I would like to see offices that incorporate the best of the local area and the home office culture.

Stimuli and input
Chewed through “The Rook” by Daniel O’Malley to get a fiction fix. I stopped listening to Robin Dreeke’s “The Code of Trust” because the superlatives about his code didn’t feel justified and I felt like the book was getting arrogant in its delivery. Finally finished Seneca’s “Letters from a Stoic” in paper, it is on my re-read list.

Craft and unnecessary creating
I am a weaver! Got a 20in Ashford Knitter’s loom with a 7.5 dent heddle and I’m experimenting with different gauges of yarn in the warp and weft. Christmas knitting is completed.

Exercise and health
This year I have gone from not being able to do proper pushups, to doing 20 of them, now I’m working on pushups from my fists with knees on the ground. That feels like progress. I’m also ten pounds lighter than on August 2nd when I started experimenting with a mostly Paleo diet.
