In an effort to help me keep up with everything I post each week, here is my latest “Sunday Summary” of my posts from the week.

Mon, September 25: It intentionally doesn’t scale
While automation and scaling can be great things for growing a business, finding places to do amazing things that can never scale will help you really stand out.

Tue, September 26: Access to knowledge is good, but creating it is better
There are many places that I’m able to access knowledge and learn a great deal, but the time I spend creating knowledge sources of my own is far more valuable.

Wed, September 27: Just pick up the trash
There is likely one thing that your company needs to make sure they always do, and staying focused on that will produce great dividends.

Thu, September 28: USB-C is finally everywhere
With the iPhone 15 finally changing their charging port to USB-C, it’s essentially everywhere now and I love it.

Fri, September 29: Advice is often an average that hides the distribution
Taking advice from others can be a great thing, but remember that advice is often the average direction you should go and knowing the bounds can be very helpful.

Sat, September 30: The muse sees the butt in the chair
Waiting for inspiration will lead to scattered results. If you sit down and do the work, the inspiration will usually find you.

I hope you found some value in this. If you ever have questions, ideas, or disagreements regarding anything I write, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
