One of my favorite leadership strategies regarding team member empowerment is to simply allow staffers, especially new ones, the room and the leverage to make decisions (and mistakes).
To do this you simply need to say two very important yet powerful words:
Take a look friends. You’re some of the first to ever see it.
Couldn’t be more stoked!
Too legit to quit. Have a great Friday folks!
Celebrating someone’s life is a great reason to gather. It’s a great reason to take the time, travel the distance, and hug someone you haven’t seen in what feels like ages.
Part of what makes grief so potent is that it’s often done alone. This doesn’t have to be the case, though.
Grieving together is always better and it can even be beautiful.
My grandmother’s passing is a reminder of how short our lives really are and yet how full they can be when lived well.
Seeing my family, my friends, and some of the folks that I love the most made me smile endlessly.
What a good reason to gather.
These girls will not stop growing. I’ve asked them to stop, repeatedly, but, they are not listening to me.
I’ve been told this is normal, though.

Hey folks! It’s been too long!
Wanted to give a brief update and then some neat things to chew on, even if you’re not a Cryptonaut, we wanted to share some progress on the native iOS app that we’re building!
First, here are some never-before-seen concepts of the brand that we were building out. These aren’t final, of course.
As I mentioned, we typically share this with the Cryptonauts, but, today… bonus time! Everyone’s a winner!
And here’s a screenshot (or two) around our development progress:
Onwards and upwards!
I haven’t read
any commentaries on the new and recent Twitter change regarding the increase of characters per tweet (140 chars to now 280 chars) but I already have an opinion.
And… that doesn’t mean that my opinion is very good, but, I share a few candid thoughts this morning via my vlog
We are moving. Again.
But, at least we’re staying in San Francisco and the Bay Area… as I love it here more than most of the places that I’ve lived. In fact, there’s only one place in the world that compares and that is Tokyo, Japan.
Some of us have lived long enough to begin to recognize the clear patterns in our lives.
In other words, we’ve understood that life is cyclical and that it tends to repeat itself and that, for whatever reason, our own lives seem to have distinct and specific and special patterns.

The person who is the star of previous era is often the last one to adapt to change, the last one to yield to logic of a strategic inflection point and tends to fall harder than most.
Inspiration is for amateurs. Everyone else
shows up to work. A professional has professional habits, which necessarily include showing up to work, especially when you don’t feel like it.
