  1. Stephen M. R. Covey – Trust: The One Thing That Changes Everything – Scar Tissue Podcast | With Fabian Di Marco

    Stephen M. R. Covey is the bestselling author of The SPEED of Trust—The One Thing That Changes Everything. He is the former CEO of Covey Leadership Center, which, under his management, became the largest leadership development company in the world worth over $160m. Stephen personally led the strategy that propelled his father’s book, Dr. Stephen R. Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, to become one of the two most influential business books of the 20th Century, according to CEO Magazine. In this episode, we talk about the importance of trust for leaders and people who lead.

     

    Topics we cover

    Lessons from the merger: the merger between the Covey business and Franklin Quest didn’t initially go so well. It was through this experience Stephen learned the importance of ‘trust’. 

    The importance of trust:  Trust is delivering on the promises you make, and leaders must go first. Without trust, people lose faith, expectations are never met, and deliverables slow down, affecting your bottom line. However, with trust, there’s less micro-management and more effective collaboration, meaning a faster more agile relationship, team or organisation, and a more innovative one. 

    Living life in crescendo. Stephen’s views, beliefs and principles for life and the echoes of his father.

  2. Jamie Pride – A Survivor’s Guide To Being An Entrepreneur – Scar Tissue Podcast | With Fabian Di Marco

    This is the episode every entrepreneur needs to hear. Jamie Pride, the former CEO of RealEstate.com.au, author and founder of 6 tech start-ups, most notably ‘REFIND’, once a listed $200m business that came crashing down, gives his guide to founder-fitness. This is both a personal story of triumph and a tactical playbook for a longer happier career as an entrepreneur. 

    What I Learned

    Entrepreneurs, particularly in Australia, are burning out and becoming depressed because:

    Entrepreneurs self-identify with their business. They sacrifice so much of themselves for the business that when the business is a success, they feel like a success, and when the business is a failure, they feel like a failure. There’s too much linkage between self-worth and business outcome.

    In Australia, there’s a stigma around failing, unlike in the US where it’s a right of passage.

    Entrepreneurs are surrounded by curated social media where everybody is ‘crushing it’ – so when they do fail, they feel like the only ones failing.

    How to build longevity as an entrepreneur:

    Reframe your thinking about your business and career from a sprint to a marathon. You need to build for sustainability.

    Don’t think about your business as your only shot and that it has to be a success.

    Make sure your business is aligned to your values and your purpose. The purpose is more sustainable than passion, especially when the chips are down in tough periods, it’ll make you more willing to weather the storm.

    Build capacity – and then build a business on top of that.

    Physical capacity: if you’re not well, you won’t be able to deal with the stress

    Mental capacity: your ability to manage your day, your productivity habits and how long you can hold your attention for

    Emotional capacity: how do you create headspace? How well do you question your bias, beliefs & bullshit?

    Once a founder has focused on the three areas of capacity, they typically exhibit these three key traits which contribute to a better founder and an improved chance of success:

    They become more self-aware: which makes them more investible, more coachable and they can build better relationships

    They’re going to be more adaptable: able to change with the different conditions and circumstances

    They’re going to be more resistant: they’ll have the ability to get back up and get back up faster.

    The goal should be to enjoy what you do every day – rather than constantly looking to escape. Escapism is a burnout effect that many corporate executives and entrepreneurs face. Working in stints of time with a view to ‘take a break’ in the horizon. If you’re enjoying what you’re doing, and you feel nourished by it – there’s no need to seek the escape from it.

    To implement these foundations you need rituals and routines. For example, what you do in the morning will set the routine for the rest of your day (tip: set a digital sunrise – no email or social until 2hrs after you wake up).

    The three most common issues founder seek help with are co-founder relationships, investor relationships and managing team relationships.

    The real fear for entrepreneurs is not the failure or losing money, it’s disappointing other people, especially people who made sacrifices for them. It’s important to have open conversations with these people from the beginning, especially your family – because you can’t succeed if your fighting about your business at home.

    All good entrepreneurs have three core characteristics; empathy, curiosity and dissatisfaction.

    For the last 12 years, John Gruber’s tracked the modern era of Apple on Daring Fireball, his personal web site turned full-time job. Bootstrapped with reader contributions and shirt sales, John’s thoughtful approach to sponsorship allowed him to remain fiercely independent, while working on projects like Markdown, The Talk Show, and Vesper, his minimalist note-taking app.

  5. Cabel Sasser, Panic - XOXO Festival (2013)

    Ostensibly, Panic makes Apple software, like the award-winning Transmit, Coda, and Status Board. But how many Apple software developers team up with the creator of Katamari Damacy to print and sell their official t-shirts, or manufacture a series of deadly accurate Atari 2600 boxes for non-existent games? Cofounder Cabel Sasser shares the unique story of how Panic stayed independent at all costs, as well as some of the challenges along the way.

  6. The World-Wide Work

    Presented by Ethan Marcotte at New Adventures, 24th January 2019, Nottingham, UK. These days, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. The tech industry is facing a veritable raft of ethical, moral, and political crises. Automation and industrialisation are reshaping our world. And sitting in the middle of all that? You and me. We’re digital designers, we’re developers, we’re product owners. But each day, our work is changing — more quickly than it ever has before. Here’s the question we have to ask ourselves: what do we want that change to be? In this talk, we’ll look at some of the challenges facing our industry, and ask ourselves: what kind of work do we want to do? Our website has a page dedicated to Ethan’s talk with related resources, reading list, and other material. newadventuresconf.com/2019/coverage/ethan/ Twitter links: twitter.com/beep twitter.com/naconf Our next event is Thursday 23rd January, 2020.

  8. Rendering on the Web: Performance Implications of Application Architecture (Google I/O ’19)

    One of the core values of the web is its accessibility: the same medium can be used to deliver content that adapts to different devices, capabilities and connection types. This variability needs to be factored into every architectural decision that is made. Luckily, frameworks are here to help.This talk will showcase upcoming framework features that reduce the impact of architectural constraints and potentially improve performance beyond what is possible today.

  9. !!Con 2019- Tail Call Optimization: The Musical!! by Anjana Vakil & Natalia Margolis

    !!Con 2019- Tail Call Optimization: The Musical!! by Anjana Vakil & Natalia Margolis

    “Stack overflow”! “Maximum call stack size exceeded”!! “Too much recursion”!!!

    You may have seen errors like these thrown when you attempt to run a deeply recursive function. Computers can be so dramatic! But what’s the conflict, exactly, between recursion and call stacks? And is there any hope for resolving it into a happy ending? In this musical talk we’ll see why recursion poses a problem for the finite-memory call stack in our language runtime (we’ll use a JavaScript engine as an example), and learn how “Tail Call Optimization” (TCO) - a particularly cool implementation feature of some engines - lets us get around that problem, when paired with so-called “tail-recursive” functions. We’ll sing our way through the meaning of these terms to explore how TCO messes with the call stack (in a useful way!), as we mess with the lyrics to some of our favorite animated musical songs (in a nerdy way!).
