Hell-Bent on Destruction

I see some of the stuff my one-year-old does, and I think…

As sweet and cute as she is, angelic at times, there’s something in her that just… Has to DESTROY everything it touches.

Done with her food? She doesn’t just stop eating it – she authoritatively chucks it on the ground.

She can’t let me get above three stacks high in blocks before she proceeds to knock them down and gnaw on them.

Think she’s just petting the puppy? Maybe so, until she gets the hankering to grip and pull the pup’s hair until it yelps.

When she’s riding on the backpack, she’s all good until she decides to start boxing my ears and laughing maniacally.

Makes me wonder…

Are we humans designed to be a little… Destructive?

Marketers vs. Experts

I just read this from Eben Pagan, and it's the best definition of marketing I've heard in awhile... Marketing is fulfilling the needs of another person. Nothing slimy about it. Thing is, marketers get this (good ones do, anyways). "Experts", on … [Continue reading]

Go A Level Deeper (Or More)

When you're trying to learn something, it's natural to study the experts. The gurus. The people who are the loudest in that field at that time. Makes sense. But I propose going one (or more) level deeper... Study their teachers. I like to do … [Continue reading]
