Different kind of writing today.
More of a list of things. Not a perminent change to the writing style, but an attempt at trying something new, because – why the hell not.
Anyway, few things:
Here’s a list of thoughts, insights and discoveries I’ve had / come across this week.
- Distractions kill the flow of brilliant work.
- Don’t steal but emulate.
- The secret to success is being able to move on.
Everyone you meet always asks if you have a career, are married, or own a house, as if life was some kind of grocery list. But no one ever asks you if you are happy. — Heath Ledger
All men make mistakes, but a good man yields when he knows his course is wrong, and repairs the evil. The only crime is pride. ― Sophocles
Here’s something cool I found out on Twitter:
Toyota has a decision-making principle called “gemba.”
Instead of depending on hierarchy, the people who are closest to what’s happening make decisions.
Here’s why: Toyota believes that the more hands-on knowledge a decision-maker has, the better their decision will be.

Last thing on this list:
Kurt Cobain was a dark but beautiful soul. I obviously didn’t know him personally, but recently I’ve been revisiting Nirvana.
I can’t help but feel he exhibited complete vulnerability when creating his music.
His lyrics were sometimes beautiful and other times very very dark.
The outcome of his creative mind is tragic. However, 26 years after his death (1 year less than his life span), his creations are still awesome, so much so that they perfectly set the tone for the new batman trailer.
