How to Win Friends and Influence People [Book Review]

Since it first hit the shelves in 1936, How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie, has been the definitive text in the world of influence and interpersonal dynamics. The only other book even remotely in the same league as How to Win Friends is perhaps...

Monday Motivation #3 (Baz Luhrmann)

Today's video to get you psyched to tackle your week comes straight out of the '90's! So buckle up, baby, we're dusting off the Delorean. :   Now scamper down to the comments and tell me your favorite chunk of popcorn advice. Maybe it's from the video, maybe it's...

The Psychology of Failure

Failing Is Necessary Nobody likes failing. Some people claim to love it, but I remain unconvinced that they are in fact entirely human. As such, their opinions should be taken with the highest degree of skepticism. But here’s the thing, regardless of how you feel...

Rothfuss vs Sanderson Style [Writing Workshop]

Rothfuss vs Sanderson Style I found myself in a particularly heated debate the other night (which shouldn’t come as a surprise considering I host a podcast alongside some friends that is entirely focused on the fine art of debate/argument) about the relative merits of...

Deep Work [Book Review]

You might’ve noticed by now that I’m super into books about productivity and human behavior. I’ve got some pretty severe ADHD lurking up in my skull, and I figured out pretty early in life that the key to my personal productivity was almost entirely dependent on my...

Monday Motivation #2 (Alan Watts)

Here we are, my friends, another beginning, another opportunity, another Monday. Now today, we're not just cranking the psyche system to 11 and getting all sorts of spastic motivated. I'm not your spin instructor, and you don't need me showering you with spittle as I...

Criticism is an Anal Probe. (Writing Workshop)

Into the Digital Catacombs We Go I went full Indiana Jones on my writing hard drive this morning. Plumbing the depths of your old content never fails to enlighten. It's also good if you're in need of a good cringefest (gotta keep those facial muscles nice and tone,...

Necrotech [Book Review]

Street thug Riko has some serious issues—memories wiped, reputation tanked, girlfriend turned into a tech-fueled zombie. And the only people who can help are the mercenaries who think she screwed them over. In an apathetic society devoid of ethics or regulation, where...

The Sequel Nearly Broke Me

<<<The Sequel Nearly Broke Me>>> I nterested to hear the story of how Mind Breach, the long awaited sequel to Time Heist, nearly broke my heart and soul? Curious to see how close I came to full-blown insanity? Perhaps you're struggling with an...

Monday Motivation #1 (Simon Sinek)

Time to perk up, folks, Monday has arrived. Yeah, yeah, I know, Mondays are rough. You partied hard (or went into complete couch potato mode) this weekend and the last thing you want to do is putter into work for another week of drudgery. I get it. I do. Truly. But...

4 Ways to Take Control of Your Life

Welcome to the world of fragmented attention. Let’s face it, we’re screwed. We’re deep inside a digital age that has reduced our attention spans to the equivalent of a high-functioning goldfish. From the moment we slide our slabs of meat out of bed in the morning, to...

Stranger Things 2 Trailer

Stranger Things splashed down last year on Netflix and made all sorts of waves. It's an impressive mix of nostalgic throw-back to a simpler time when life was spent nerding out in the basement with a handful of close buddies, coupled with the sort of paranormal horror...

Kill your darlings. Kill’em dead. (Writing Workshop)

My hard-drive is littered with carcasses. It’s a literary graveyard. Overflowing with the remains of sweet, beautiful little darlings cut down in the prime of their lives. And with every darling I’ve ever butchered, I died a little inside. Some of you will understand...
