What I’m Doing Now

This is a Now Page. I last updated it on May 23, 2021.

If you can contribute to anything I’m doing here, send me an email.

1) Building Tread Athletics

I spend the majority of my time working on, in, and thinking about Tread Athletics.

At the moment, my top priority is recruiting and hiring.

Not everyone’s a great fit for Tread, but you might be. Apply and find out.

2) Writing

Back in April, I suspended my weekly newsletter, Monday Morning Edge.

I don’t have a timeline on when it’ll be back, nor do I want one. The next phase of my newsletter will be ready when it is, and you can sign up here if you want to be a part of it.

3) Reading

I’m a fairly voracious reader and have a particular interest in systems theory, history, certain strains of philosophy, good business books (of which there are few), among others.

I’m thinking about putting together a reading page like Ribbonfarm’s. We’ll see if/when I get to it.

4) Learning to Say No

I once read that early on, you should say yes to as many opportunities as possible to help luck find you.

I’ve said yes for a long time. Now, it’s time to start saying no.

My basic rule (which I’m free to break): if it doesn’t make Tread better, the answer’s no.

I don’t like telling people no, but paradoxically, I can help more people by protecting my yes’.

So if I tell you no, I’m sorry. But at least now you understand.
