"You can do this, you can make your kids educational life worth living, rather dreading every Fall." ~ @JohnPapola youtube.com/watch?v=Ijp5mt…
No team can reach its full potential without humble, open, honest, "Wrong, not bad." attitudes... These attitudes flow down from the top. #PlankOuttaYourOwnEye #ServantLeadership
In a crowd of libertarians... "Who's pro-choice?" ...about 1/2 the hands go up... "Who's pro-life?" ...about 1/2 the hands go up... "Who believes the 9th Amendment indicates that unenumerated rights are still Constitutional rights?" ...every hand shoots into the air.
"First" drafts should never be read by anyone other than the author and the author's co-authors / editors / teachers. Basic principle in every area of writing.
Personal political philosophy is too often framed by “If I Ran The Zoo” thinking... When it should be firmly grounded on “If THEY Ran The Zoo” thinking.

*Commercial Science rises a bit higher when there are objective feedback loops involved, e.g. Did the missile hit the target? Did the pavement hold up for 10 years?
Quality of Knowledge by Source: #1 Commercial Science Distant #2 Academic Science Far Distant #3 Popular Science Prominence of Knowledge by Source in Public Policy: #1 Popular Science Far Distant #2 Academic Science So Distant As To Be Barely On The List #3 Commercial Science*
A great measure of business system quality is the ratio: (Answers to Daily Questions Derived From Systems) / (Answers to Daily Questions Derived From Interrupting Team Members) We should strive for a 1.0 on this KPI
How much would you support your local institution of "higher education" or your alma mater (monetarily or otherwise) if they did not house your favorite sports teams? How much do these teams crowd out private, pro-sports entertainment alternatives?

DALL-E is crazy impressive. But I’m getting a feel for what it can and can’t do, and there are some quite noticeable limitations you won’t see on the curated publicised examples (including my own). So, 8 limitations of DALL-E, a thread: (also, have a #dalle koala doing magic)

Practicing Discipline Delegation enables action, enables accountability, and makes our teams far more effective.
When: By when does this need to be done? Is there any other time details that are relevant to this task?
Where: Is there a place, tool, or software related to this task?
What: What is the specific objective to be accomplished?
Who: Who is doing the task and is there anyone else related to it?
In delegation, most of us owe our employees far more than we give. Next time you are assigning a task ask yourself: Who? What? Where? When?
Trust wins the day in the market, delivering on your promises engenders trust, delivering your promises is a function of the systems you build. Go build your systems!
Be a company that systematizes the processing, organization, and execution of client requests in such an airtight manner that YOU are trusted in a unique way.
“When people with whom you interact notice that without fail you receive, process, and organize in an airtight manner the exchanges and agreements they have with you, they begin to trust you in a unique way." ~ David Allen
One of the secrets of the market is that clients don’t care if you “overdeliver” or offer “unique” services; clients want partners who will do what they said they would, ON time, ON budget.
But you must be humble that you will never know your value to your client as well as they know it themselves. Never let your pride to trump your responsibility to simply deliver as agreed.
You have a critical responsibility to understand your value proposition, that offer of exchange you make with clients, as best as you can and to improve that understanding over time.
1 Corinthians 13 says, “For we know in part”, that’s you with your product or service. You only have at best a hazy understanding of the value your company is delivering for a customer.
Value is complex, nuanced, and subjective… The person who best understands what your product or service truly delivers is the customer on the other end of the transaction.
The core value of every business is that they are promise fulfillment machines... It does not matter what product you make or service you provide, your value is produced when you deliver as agreed, whatever that agreement was.
So I'm back after a while and my first post is bad mouthing @QuickBooks (deservedly)... Promise to be back to regularly scheduled optimistic entrepreneurship shortly.
Quickbooks just swapped my send invoice button with a "send and fund" button where they skim 3% of my revenue. #SuperShady #CrossSaleFail I want to take my business somewhere that doesn't make my accounting feel like constantly fending off peddlers in a flea market. Suggestions?
1) Twitter can ban whoever they want. 2) Banning Trump is not helpful in preventing populist movement from becoming more alienated and extreme. 2) B/c Twitter didn’t wait until he was out off office, they’ll be hard pressed to explain why Ayotollah and other tyrants can tweet.

Is Atlas about to shrug off the Republican Party? Has Atlas realized he can?
Wow... Guess who’s rising on my “Failure to read the room” list? 🤦 P.S. No one needs to “believe the administrative class”. But trusting the universal results of dozens of court challenges seems epistemically prudent.twitter.com/mises/status/1…V
“War is politics by other means” the oft paraphrased Clausewitz quote is almost the opposite of the truth... That politics is war by other means. We saw today the despicable result of abandoning our political institutions, leaving us only the alternative of violent conflict.
This is violent mob rule which has no place in our constitutional republic. twitter.com/brianstelter/s…
Just evacuated my office in Cannon due to a nearby threat. Now we’re seeing protesters assaulting Capitol Police. This is wrong. This is not who we are. I’m heartbroken for our nation today.

Academics absurdly labeling equal opportunity offender @TheLouPerez and others as “far right radicals”... “...the type of analysis you’d have to be living in an echo chamber to come up with.” wsj.com/articles/how-i…
Covid Derangement Syndrome by Don Boudreaux: To eliminate Covid, no resource expenditure is too great; no amount of freedom is too much to crush; no amount of tyranny is too much to tolerate. Nothing matters as much as minimizing Covid deaths. It’s what humanity now exists to do.

How much interest journalists should have in these anomalies seems to decrease significantly from 1 to 3.
1) Biden was the beneficiary of a supernatural miracle 2) Biden was the beneficiary of widespread election conspiracy that includes both Democratic and Republican election officials and judges 3) Biden was the beneficiary of a historically divisive incumbent
Occam’s Razor... Any one of the following three options could theoretically produce the supposed statistical anomalies we saw in the 2020 presidential election. Which is most plausible?
The biggest untold story of 2020 is that Moderna took just 48 hours in Jan to develop a 95% effective vaccine. It then took 11 months for vaccinations to begin — largely because of huge regulatory burdens. Millions have died as a result. We cannot ever wait this long again.

Congress just spent $900,000,000 to make everyone angry. The free market would have found a cheaper way to do that.

"If Western societies are compared to a theoretical equalitarian utopia in which prejudice doesn’t exist, then, yes, they remain racist and misogynistic. But compared to the rest of the planet, Western societies are the freest and most inclusive today" quillette.com/2020/12/22/a-p…
