Life Got trapped in JFK airport because of the snow. Finally made it back to Colombia though! And have the first weekend to myself with no planes in... I am not sure how long. Making myself at home and catching up on things, mainly. It's nice to be still. Went to the Museum of Contemporary Art in ...

AirBnB Travel Tip

Credit: Wikipedia

I stay in AirBnBs a lot (referral link), and my strategy is as follows: Filter on the things I care about (entire place, washing machine, location). Pick 2-3 that would be fine. Message them expressing an interest, asking a question, and saying something along the lines of "as it's a longer stay, are you open to giving me a ...

2016: Scale

Apophysis 3D fractal ball

For 2016, I chose the word “scale”. Couple of reasons for this: As a new manager, I feel like this is the biggest thing I need to work on. I really want to focus on projects that have the best ROI. Scale, to me, means eliminating the good-but-not-great. What does “scale” look like? How do I make 10 other ...

Life Orienting myself in Medellin - just before I leave again! Managed to get a gym membership etc. The apartment I was staying in was too big, and I didn't have hot water for a couple of days which was stressful. (more life updates on wherethehelliscate.com) Work Great! I mean. Busy. Stressful. But great! I like my job and ...

2015: Ship

For 2015, I chose the word ship. I did this for a couple of reasons: Taking some “time out” can easily turn into achieving nothing. It was important to me that I had something to show for my time. I wanted to bias towards putting stuff out there. I am very achievement oriented, and this gave me achievements ...

Start a Project. Kill a Project.

The Last Postcards (sent from Paris, Jan 3 2015)

I have been enjoying everyone's year in review posts, and reading what they hope to achieve over the next year. I love the enthusiasm and the new projects starting, but one thing I love even more is when I see people defining what they will do less of in 2016. For myself, I set my self a limit of ...

Life In Paris for New Year's, came for some solitude and culture. I'm enjoying the break from the intensity and that other people are also on a break and making a point to connect with friends online, if not IRL! Nice to get back into the gym again, too! Trying to figure out how one packs to ...
