    TOPIC: The Attention Stack

    This week, Dan and Merlin talk about—what?—maybe the attention stack. How what we pay attention to (and, yes spend our time on) can’t help but affect how we see, think, feel, and decide.

    Not happy with any of those things? Start working your way down the stack.

    TOPIC: The Surprising Problems of "Doing What You Love"

    Merlin has some follow up on Agency: be in control of what you give away and why you charge what you charge, and Dan is interested in what happens when you stop loving what you love when you do it as a job.

    There are no guarantees, so don’t mistake the Federalist Papers for Constitutional Law, and if you miss the signs you shouldn’t be sailing, you’ll just end up vomiting in your bucket hat.

    You’re not going suddenly arrive and do what you love. You get there through course correction: look back at all the ugly birdhouses and look ahead for the next step toward building a home.

  8. 5by5 | Back to Work #138: Mindfulness…Whether I Want It or Not

    TOPIC: Informal Background Self-Quantization

    This week Dan & Merlin discuss the merits of self-quantization. Which is fancy way of saying, "Merlin got a new Fitbit."

    Why is anecdotal self-reporting a sucker’s bet? What are the benefits of making your life a little video game? And, why is Merlin’s scale accessing APIs via the internet?

    TOPIC: Etiquette, Intros, and Endorsements

    This week, Dan and Merlin talk about the surprisingly complicated topic of email introductions.

    Who emails whom? Who gets cc’d and for how long? How much homework are we making (or accepting)? And, thorniest of all, how do you ““introduce”” someone you’d reeeeeeally rather not introduce?
