    Most Psychological Research is BS.

    I could write up a summary of this, but I think the article is succinct enough: Most Psychology Research Is BS – Jason Hreha – Medium Key takeaway: There's a bit of context here. If you're familiar with the book Thinking, Fast and Slow, you know of the concept of social priming. It's been...

    YCombinator Startup School

    I haven't been on in a while, but I wanted to share this with people. Paul Graham's incubator, Y Combinator, is running a free 10-week course on the pragmatics of running a start up. It's called Start Up School, and it's located at Startup School. One of thing I found interesting in the first...

    Work life balance myth.

    http://www.alexstjohn.com/WP/2016/05/16/strange-times-wage-slaves/ Most important point, look at the people who are highly successful, like Gates, Musk, Buffet, and Jobs. For them, there is no work/life balance, there is no sense of sacrifice. They only work on things they truly believe in...

    Being the alpha and taking charge of your life.

    Taken from http://www.artofmanliness.com/2016/04/24/how-to-really-be-alpha-like-the-wolf/ Some food for thought for those familiar with the Star Wars series, who's the alpha male? The emperor or Yoda?

    Get away from the wall.

    Taken from Hacker News, https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=11518795. The only thing that stops you from stepping away from the wall, from living the life YOU want to live, is to do the one thing that most people only dream about, but never do: start. Put one foot in front of the other.

    QuitN6 Course Review

    Not sure where to put this, but I decided to try out Matt Stone's QuitN6 course. I'll use this thread to post my thoughts on it. I actually got this course so my wife and I could work through it, so she gets an idea of the stuff that occupies my brain. The first lesson is short, a 20 minute...

    What you need to learn before you start a business

    We see a lot of people asking what do they need to learn before launching a business. On one side, we have people saying you don't need to learn anything. On the other hand, we see people listing out skills, like writing code, writing sales copy, branding, SEO, etc. Putting myself out there, I...

    WEB/DIGITAL Good HN thread

    For those who don't know, Hacker News is a link sharing and discussion site (similar to Reddit) run by Y Combinator, which is a seed accelerator started by Paul Graham. By it's nature, it's great place for the intersection between technology and entrepreneurship. (I spend way too much time...

    EXECUTION My Progress

    My last plan didn't work out as I had hoped, but I did learn some things that are helping me with new plan. Most important was patience. So, this is what I am currently working on. Some elements of it are fastlane, some are slowlane, but the goal is put me into a position where I want to be...

    A Primer on Nietzsche

    It might be an observation bias at play, but I've noticed that Nietzsche is becoming an influential thinker in this community, in no small part to his concepts of the ubermensch. Reading his works are great, but they can be a bit overwhelming for people who are busy. Given that, I thought I'd...

    Dealing with competition

    Thought I'd share this one, since I know people tend to not act out of fear of competition: http://www.johndcook.com/blog/2015/11/30/overestimating-the-competition/ Don't worry about what someone else is doing, focus on what you

    EXECUTION My Execution Plan

    I've been listening to episode 46 of the SPI podcast where Pat interviews Dane Maxwell. During that interview, Dane mentions how he'll find the top 10 listings on Google for a particular market, and then send out a 3 sentence email to the owners of those business asking for information on their...

    Possible Idea

    My wife and I sometimes find ourselves at the end of the day, looking to make a meal, but not knowing what to make given the ingredients we have. I was considering building an tool that would offer up a selection of recipes given a set of ingredients or a desired time. Over time, if this has...

    INTRO Hello!

    Hello everyone, I'd like to introduce myself to the community. My story isn't particularly interesting; it's a standard slowlane story. My parents weren't very rich, but they weren't very poor. They were able to provide for my brother and me, send us to private schools, and even help us through...
