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 useful life skills in the research phase, which I'll pick up after finishing my current work-in-progress.
I am also open to a limited number of consulting engagements. If you're starting a business as a solo founder, or working on a large project with a significant degree of ambiguity and uncertainty (like writing a book, completing a creative project, starting a nonprofit, etc.), 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, most notably Microconf Growth and World Domination Summit.
Aside from work, I'm currently enjoying:
- Kettlebell 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.
