Tips on Living

  • Living a Good Life. Here’s a set of things about how to be a better person and live a good life. My favorites are Randy Pausch and Brene Brown but there’s a healthy helping of David Allen and Stephen Covey in there too.
  • Tips and Tricks. Things to start doing, stop doing, and “How-To” items like “Start getting your friends to put down their phones,” “Stop refrigerating your butter,” and “How to Have More Fun on Roller Coasters.”
  • Fun Mental Models. Any good Almanac needs some clever ideas to help its readers get through their lives. I’ve realized that many of my favorite ideas are all named after people. Some are are useful, others are just fun.
  • Lessons from My Grandparents. My grandparents taught me so many lessons. This is my homage to them.
