I have an Uber account I have never used. The one time I tried to use the service, it was disappointing. I think all Uber driver profiles should include photos of the car.

By far and away, if you have more ideas than time but more time than attention, the best way to keep the needle moving forward is to have smarter “defaults” for how your spend your time and energy. Keep choosing the right actions and attitudes until they choose you back.

When I sit down at my desk in the morning, it’s time to write.

There is hot coffee to the left of my keyboard. My keyboard, well, it’s about as clicky and awesome as they come. I put in my earbuds, hit play on the soundtrack, and set a 30 minute timer.

My phone is in Do Not Disturb mode. So is my computer. The outside world can wait. For the next half hour I’m pushing the cursor.

This is my writing routine.

He seemed out of place there surrounded by beach jewelry, scented candles, and baskets of packaged seashells. Dance music over store speakers nearly drowned out his voice. As we followed him through aisles crammed with flip-flops and plastic buckets, I thought sadly how his working in such a place was final evidence that the small town ways had been all but swallowed up by sterile progress.

Most spiritual teachings stress the importance of some kind of practice, be it meditation, prayer, yoga, relaxation, or movement. The important thing is to set aside some time each day to reestablish a deeper connection with our true nature.

I made a delicious Whisky Sour tonight. I improvised on this recipe.

I used the remaining 50ml of our McCallan 15, lemon concentrate, and agave syrup. I added a few drops of orange bitters along with Angostura bitters.

It was delicious!

The Four Tools of Discipline

Whoa!

Truth or reality is avoided when it is painful. We can revise our maps only when we have the discipline to overcome that pain. To have such discipline, we must be totally dedicated to truth. That is to say that we must always hold truth, as best we can determine it, to be more important, more vital to our self-interest, than our comfort. Conversely, we must always consider our personal discomfort relatively unimportant and, indeed, even welcome it in the service of the search for truth.

I think the problem is that the algorithms are biased toward what's important to the people who developed them.

Algorithms rank individuals to determine credit worthiness, desirability for college admissions and employment, and compatibility as dating partners. They encode ideas of what counts as the best schools, neighborhoods, and technologies.
