Sudare sette camicie

Sweating through seven shirts… That was the definition of work when work was the same thing as physical labor. For many of us, the physical labor is no longer the way we add value. And it’s tempting to imagine that we simply have to show up for the coffee. But it’s still called work. Adding value isn’t easy. As soon as it is, everyone will do it, and our participation becomes less useful.

How to Create Your Own Private Community with WordPress

Many of our readers have told us that they find large social media platforms exhausting, and for good reason. There are very few places where people can find niche communities that match their interests without being bombarded by advertisements and dark tactics to get them addicted. This is a massive opportunity for website owners. Whether you sell products or services, teach online courses,

Kazoo lessons

Knowledge and technique used to be closely guarded secrets. Admission to the guild was reserved for a few, and crafts like typesetting, plumbing and medicine were off limits to most folks. One of the reasons for the explosion in productivity and innovation in the last century is that more tools and leverage are available to more people than ever before. But, along the way, we began to prize tools

Blame your tools

Blame the clients. And blame the conditions. But then, you’re on the hook to get better tools, find better clients and work in better conditions. It’s not convenient, but it’s possible. If it’s not worth the effort, we can simply accept what we’ve chosen and get back to work.

Can you draw it on a graph?

Explain it with quadrants? Translate it into Spanish? It’s easy to memorize a few words that purport to explain something, but all they do is relabel it.

That’s why most graphs aren’t any good. They’re made by folks who don’

The paradox of lessons

The people most likely to sign up for coaching or additional learning are the folks who are already good at their craft. “I’m terrible at this,” can lead to, “and I don’t want to be reminded of it.” Or perhaps, “I don’t want to waste their time,” or, “I’m never going to get better.” When it’s possible to get better, embracing mediocrity isn’t a useful strategy. I’d rather have a surgeon who regul

Cat and mouse games

I hope that most of us would agree that driving 50 mph in a school zone where little kids cross the street is a significant safety problem.

Avoiding the trap questions

A trick question is designed to fool us into proposing the wrong answer (example below). A trap question, on the other hand, stops the train completely. A trap question demands an answer, and the answer will paralyze us and keep us from the work at hand. “Yes, but how many followers does your brand have on Insta?” is a trap question. So is, “Are you sure you’re prepared enough for the talk you ha
