    1. The Massive Problem with Motivation

      The Massive Problem with Motivation

      Paul Jarvis is a best-selling author and designer. He's worked with Silicon Valley startups, pro-sports athletes, Fortune 500 companies and the world's biggest entrepreneurs. He writes weekly for his popular newsletter and runs an online course on becoming a better freelancer. Motivation is to action as reading about exercise is to being in shape.

    2. The Difference Between Success and Failure

      The Difference Between Success and Failure

      It's all a balancing act. Perched on a tightrope, with high winds, and possibly some large, angry ravens pecking and cawing. I make a living on the internet by being myself and sharing the things I've learned. But I'm also scared to be myself and share the things I've learned. Some days, I don't care about being judged.

      Pizza and the Complications of Running a Business

      We like to complicate things. Product launches, service offerings, websites, pizza... Why do we do this? Sometimes I think it stems from an idea that something needs to be complicated to hold more value. As in, an online course with 34 lessons and 197 bonuses must be more valuable than a course with just seven lessons. Or a book must be more useful if it's 655 pages long instead of just a paltry 243.
