    Faux intimacy

    True connection is a frightening prospect. When you are seen by someone else, really seen, it hurts even more if you’re ultimately rejected. When we connect, we make promises, buy into a different future, engage with another, someone who might let us down (or we might let them down). Far easier, of course, to do something more shallow. A friend on social media is not like a friend in real life.

    "I have fear"

    There’s a common mistranslation that causes us trouble. We say, “I am afraid,” as if the fear is us, forever.

    On being discovered

    Wouldn’t that be great? Great if you could share all your wisdom on a popular podcast, or be featured on Shark Tank?

    Sloppy science

    We can measure it. For decades, every single year, scientists have visited the Galapagos and measured the beaks of a particular species of  finch .

    Questions for the underinformed

    For the jingoistic sign carrier, the impatient shareholder, the late-night goofball and the nascent entrepreneur in search of cash… We’ve heard your rants, your threats, your plans. We understand that you are in a hurry for a simple, dramatic, obvious solution to whatever problem you face.  “And then what happens?” “Has this ever worked before?” “How is this different (or the same) from those times?” “What will you do when it doesn’t work the way you hoped?” Innovation is essential, but innovation isn’t lazy. It takes insight and patience and experience to bring a new solution to an old problem

    Waves are free

    When someone lets you into the flow of traffic, or holds a door, or takes a second to acknowledge you, it’s possible to smile and offer a wave in response. This, of course, costs you nothing. It creates a feeling of connection, which is valuable.

    Seeing and believing

    It turns out that the more you watch TV, the more you believe that the world is dangerous. It turns out TV watchers believe that an astonishing 5% (!) of the population works in law enforcement. And it turns out that the more you watch TV the less optimistic you become. Cultivation theory  helps us understand the enormous power that TV immersion has. Given the overwhelming power of interaction, I’m confident that we’ll discover that internet exposure, particularly to linkbait headlines, comments and invective, will also change what people believe about the world around them

    The taxi or the cruise ship?

    The successful cab owner knows this: Every ride is custom People choose a cab precisely because they can ride alone, on their own terms Empty trips are part of the job, and it’s okay, because the next ride will pay for it. On the other hand, the person who chooses to run a cruise line knows: Every cruise is designed by me, and people sign up precisely because I chose well People choose a cruise ship to be with other people, to benefit from economies of scale and to be part of something Empty trips (or worse, half-empty trips) can put the line out of business It’s pretty easy to get into the cab business. Do a few rides for friends, then list online, or join Lyft, then go full-time.
