Character Discipline and Friendships

Posted on June 1st, 2020

I wrote the following note to one of my graduating seniors I coached this past year. I suggest it’s good encouragement to all of us as we navigate transitions and seek to live life well.


Remain at your core the high quality person of character that you are.
Be considerate, friendly, poised, curious, clever, fun.
Practice healthy disciplines—physically, mentally, spiritually.
Treasure good friendships—sage wisdom from mentors, young men that you can pass along inspiration and challenge, and with a few true friends whom you can truly know and be known by in life’s journey.

Where I draw creative inspiration from

Posted on February 3rd, 2020

*List out any books, websites, forums or meet-ups that you draw creative inspiration from. These don’t necessarily need to be design related.

I answered this question recently. I thought it was a good question so I copy/pasted both the question and my immediate response:

Herding Tigers, Creativity Inc, Tribal Leadership, HBR, Hidden Brain, 99% Invisible, Story Conference, backpacking in mountains, traveling and walking a new city, cooking and/or eating tasty food, etc.

Cultivate the Awareness of Beauty

Posted on July 22nd, 2018

"The definition of an artist is: One who cultivates the awareness of beauty."
—Sen. John Russcon (1836)

This was shared with me by a man who found me after the service where I was recognized and announced that I was leaving. He wished to share this with me as a thank you and an encouragement to continue cultivating. I am grateful for so many amazing words and gestures from people who thanked me and wished me well.
