This is so painful 'cos of how true it is in larger organizations across geographies & industries. Likely hurts, but it is helpful to reflect where I/you are in this chart. #selfawareness For a CxO, an outright rejection of this cartoon is a sign of how true it is 4 their org.
With return to work, and all these people stopping by my office... Thinking of putting this signboard outside my door to ensure I'm greeting each person optimally... (PS: Wait for that last dude, he's something else.) Source: Pattrawan Laosombut: is.gd/IE55bI
Does this happen to you... I'm reading through my old newsletters and thinking.... Good god, these are terrible. How did 50k people sign up for this? #impostersyndrome
I recommend getting out of the office during lunch. Grab some food (thai tofu curry, jasmine rice) and go walk around. I had lunch with geese today, then walked around the campus. So pretty. (I love the new bike racks!)
Micro-loans are a great way to support people for whom relatively modest for us funds can have a transformative impact. I use Kiva, I invite you to consider it as well: is.gd/iSsQeu My recent loans are for women entrepreneurs (higher halo vs. men) in Cambodia & Peru.

#twitterhelp Problem to solve: Keep in sync files btwn 2 laptops that are at diff locations. What's the simplest answer? Tried to hook a drive to my Asus ZenWiFi AX6600 to use as common source, but errors, confusion. Hooked a cheap NAS to home network, laptop won't "discover."
#presentationtips 1. PowerPoint does not suck, you do. To improve, fix the right problem. 2. You are the story, not the slides. Good luck!
#digital #Merchandising Don't be like my beloved @VanMoof, and make me do math for every row when comparing the S5 with the S3. This is hard for customers... Lowers conversion rates...

. People in a professional environment who operate without considering Karma, scare me.
68,000,000,000! We see the heartbreaking broken buildings and infrastructure in Ukraine. But, this chart takes that to a whole additional devastating level. $68 billion in losses, and, sadly, counting. (Plus irreplaceable loss of life.) : ( Details: is.gd/tiglnm
People with good high school & university grades get a sweet boost in their first job, first comp package. You'd be surprised how 3-5 years in, neither is predictive of professional success. Even less of happiness. So cheer up. You have a lifetime to be successful & be happy.

I'm so excited about what Ryan and his team are building with @culdesac! twitter.com/ryanmjohnson/s…
$1.60 for one banana is capitalism, ok fine. But if I'm hungry at the San Diego Airport, why would you only stock super unripe bananas? Are they only there to make the $6 small muffins appealing?
There is an inverse relationship between advertising that wins awards and advertising that delivers business results. Award-winning advertising is solving for vanity of a few. Effective advertising is solving for normal people. #nowyouknow
When I ride my bike 25 kms to work, my @fitbit records approx 55 Heart Points from the exercise. This morning I did a keynote, and after the hour my Fitbit Versa3 had recorded 48 Heart Points. Think keynotes are not super stressful and sap you physically? Think again. :)
If one is doing an early morning keynote... A view this WOW is relaxing... #letsgo

Professionalism is so nice. I just recorded a podcast, and the individual sent me this @CoggleIt sketch that laid out clearly flow of the podcast, areas to explore etc. In the live recording, we did not cover it all, jumped around. Still. So great to have the sketch to guide.
As Analysts mature, these five skills separate the decent from the great: 1. Knowledge seeking. 2. Persuasion. 3. Storytelling. 4. Courage. 5. Resilience. None analytical. All human. Data's good, but all it is a starting point on the journey to ensure it matters. #thinkdiff
It is a little ding on @Microsoft's brand that after upgrading to @Windows 11, I've to spend the next 30 minutes uninstalling crap they snuck in during the upgrade. If it's a clean install, ok. You did not know I don't like this crap. Why do you torture a loyal user, MSFT? Why?
Every analyst believes in the mantra "Give me insights or give me nothing!" I'm saying: Stop providing insights. All you are doing is telling leadership: "Water is wet." Switch to providing "out-of-sights!" Change the game. My new post on Occam's Razor: zqi.me/outofsights
On my Sat morning bike rides, 38 kms, I come to a screeching halt when I see a sharp object on the road and pick it up. A flat tire for anyone is such a hassle. This morning's modest haul... #karma
God, I love this man! Go @BetoORourke GO!!! (Yes. I realize a D governor in a R legislature can do little. But. Tone at the top matters.) twitter.com/BetoORourke/st…
To eliminate a car, seriously started riding my bike to work in March. Stats: 22 of 24 days 702 kilometers One way until the 17th, then both ways. Switched to a used lightly powered KBO Hurricane on 3/28. Not loving single speed, rest good. (Thanks to @ryanmjohnson for advice!)
There's lots wrong with this slide, but one thing in particular is super wrong. Can you spot it? If you had to fix it, could you? Check ur inbox: "TMAI #303: Rules for Influential Data Stories | Part 2." Stories convert data into action. [Sub? Premium: zqi.me/signuptmai]
It is pretty wonderful that while no-masks have been ok in our county for almost a month... Most people are wearing masks in our county. Also true at my employer, @Google, most employees wearing masks being respectful. PS: If I were reborn as a store, it would likely be @REI!
The fast-fashion company you've never heard of that is the world top apparel seller... Shein: us.shein.com 2k to 10k individual styles added to its app Each Day. No stores, just 6k factories unified as one. 2020 revenues: $10 bil! t.ly/X5g9l
America successfully arrives to the 18th century... : (
Every successful person: “All you need to do is discover your passion. Everything else is easy after that.” Every other person: “That's it? Just, passion? The one deeply hidden, hard to discover thing that 99.99997% of people never figure out in their lifetime? That's all?”
Thanks for your brilliant idea... #innovationreality
When we blame our phones for sucking up all our time and being a drain on us... We are ignoring the root cause of the problem: Us. #hellomirror
I was asked q: "What is your advice for someone who feels stuck in their job/career?" In the 15 secs I had to answer, I said: "Go talk to someone who dislikes you. They will tell you some new things, some that might come as a shock to you. All worth reflecting." #movingup
98% of the great analysis dies on a PowerPoint slide. And, it is all down to operator error (you!). My latest newsletter: "TMAI #302: 😇 Rules for Influential Data Stories" Test how good you are, by reading the web version here:is.gd/qKbpkvy #tellstoriesdontpukedataaL
I saw @CoryBooker speak in person, chatted with him after. He really is exactly like this. Powerful. Emotive. Intelligent. #history twitter.com/TIME/status/15…
The Russian Embassy in Finland signed up for my Marketing & Analytics newsletter. I'm not exactly sure how to process this. : ) Good for them?

3 things to try in trying situations... "Here's what I'm solving for, what about you?" "Here's what I see from my lens. What am I missing?" "I hate the situation we are in, but I respect you. Can we start again?" 1 Assumptions. 2 Incomplete Info. 3 The other is not the enemy.
Three things to try in trying situations... "Here's what I'm solving for, what about you?" "I have incomplete data, from that lens, here's what I see. What am I missing?" "I hate the situation we find ourselves in, but I respect you. Can we start again?" #betterlife
It is extraordinarily difficult to collect data, process it, report it, analyze it and find insights. It is a near-death experience for an Analyst. And yet, the end of that journey is just step one. I don't want data. I want change delivered to the business. #ourteamhatesme
