Now

Here’s what I’m doing now (last updated October 8, 2020):

Projects

I’ve priotized the following projects for the next two months:

  • IMAGINE U – A couple years ago, I was asked “If you could build a Social Innovation program without any constraints, what would you build?” IMAGINE U is my answer – a thought experiment that includes a curriculum, courses, pedagogy and more.
  • Grassroot(s) Garage – A platform dedicated to democratizing and diversifying the change-making space by teaching budding and established social entrepreneurs (outside the traditional enclaves of power) workarounds, hacks, and the beauty of bootstrapping.

Writing

I’m am doing stream of consciousness writing every morning for an hour or so. And, when a story from the stream tells me that it needs to be told, I’ll invest emotionally and temporally into transforming it into a blog.

Reading

I am reading “Journal of a Solitude” by May Sarton and “This is It” by Alan Watts.

Other recent reads include:

  • “Ledger” by Jane Hirshfield
  • “Amateur” by Thomas Page McBee
  • “Gates of Fire” Steven Pressfield
  • “Centering in Pottery, Poetry and the Person” by Mary Caroline Richards (1962)
  • “The Art of Noticing” by Rob Walker

I love getting book suggestions? If you have one, please Contact me and send them my way. Thanks!

Physical Health

I’m working on doing a muscle up….still.

I say “No” to everything else, except…

Doodling, gardening, creating playlists on Spotify, and building my obstacle course (latest additions include atlatl and  axe throwing stations).

(This is a “Now” page – an idea started by Derek Sivers.)
