What I'm Doing Now

I'm currently drafting a new book about completing important projects under conditions of variability, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity. The style is very different from my previous work.

I also have books on single-founder entrepreneurship and creativity/problem-solving in the research phase, which I'll pick up after finishing my current work-in-progress.

I'm currently open to a very limited number of consulting engagements. If you're starting a new business or working on a large project with a significant degree of ambiguity and uncertainty, I'd be happy to advise. Use this link to schedule a call.

In order to focus on my current projects, I'm not taking on public speaking engagements, and I'm limiting business travel to a few annual events.

Aside from work, I'm currently enjoying:

  • Kettlebell training and steel mace training for general strength and well-being.
  • Aikido, to improve balance, coordination, and proprioceptive skills. I'm currently 5th kyu (USAF), studying under Victor Hung Sensei, Aikido of Colorado.
  • Web application programming, so I can build a "robot army" of useful systems for my business.
  • Tabletop roleplaying games, most notably organizing a monthly Dungeons & Dragons group (I'm the DM, currently running a homebrew 5th edition campaign for five friends) and playing No Thank You Evil! with my family.


This is a "Now" page. Fun tidbit: a few years ago, Derek Sivers saw my old contact/status page, liked it, riffed on it, turned it into his own thing, and started a little movement. I liked his idea better than my own, so now my contact page has turned into a Now page. It's funny how ideas grow, shift, change, and improve over time – it's one of my favorite things about the internet.

Did you know both of my books are available as audiobooks? Think of them as very inexpensive course versions of the book. They're perennial bestsellers on Audible.com, and The Personal MBA was recently honored at the Audie Awards, the "Grammys" of the audiobook industry.

Even better: you can get one of my audiobooks for free if you don't yet subscribe to Audible. Click here for details.
