It’s a little scary, if not also inspired.

I think my cerebellum just fused.

The consensus among some of my most trusted advisors is I should reach out to my most engaged supporters, asking them what they think I should be doing with The Gearhead Project.

It’s a great idea, but what if I reach out to the dozen or so people whose opinions I trust the most, and they generally suggest I do things I’ve no interest in doing?

Because that’s what’s been happening so far.

It’s a little scary, if not also inspired.

You gotta make your own excitement

OMG. I am so bored.

It’s easy to get caught in a rut; to lose interest in the day to day hustle and grind.

But hey—the devil’s in the details. If you want it, you gotta saddle up and ride.

Instead of looking for new hotness elsewhere, consider looking within. You know where you are better than any place else, right? You should be able to figure this out.

Come up with a way to improve something. Try solving an old problem in a new way.

This is a crazy important skill.

And if you don’t get at least minimally competent in it, you’re just going in circles.

My most ambitious undertaking yet: #nlgs18 starts TODAY

Perfection is the enemy of done.

In the last month, I’ve bought an LMS, finalized a list of 50 summer activities, expanded it to almost 60, installed a forum, connected that forum to the LMS, spent a full week troubleshooting login/permissions issues, and lost track of everything I’ve done regarding email list segmentation.

And I just sent an email to… to… shit. I don’t even know how many people have signed up to play as I type this just before midnight last night. Guess we’ll find out.

If you’re a gearhead like us, I think you’ll enjoy this game. It’s the most ambitious thing I’ve ever done online. It’s going to run all summer long—three months—and it starts today.
