• Managing your time

    I had the good fortune to look at my calendar this morning and see that I had zero scheduled commitments for the day. I generally try to keep my schedule light, but it’s rare to have a weekday where nothing is scheduled. I tweeted my excitement, and my friend Harper replied asking me how I did it. I thought it was a red herring at first, but looking through my schedule over the past six months I realize I’ve done a better job managing my time. (more)

  • Planning exercise

    Over the weekend I took to Excel to try and plot out the next 20 years.

  • Buying Facebook fans for 36 cents

    I finally took the time to set up a website, Facebook page and Twitter account for Judge Chiropractic, my father’s business. As you can see from the site, it’s pretty bare bones but does a nice job of covering the basics for a local business (services offered, hours of operation, address, contact information, and an about section for the business). If you search for “Judge Chiropractic” you’ll see that the site already shows up in the first page of the Google search results, ranking #8. I was pretty excited to see this as it has only been up for a week (perhaps that points to value of a domain that directly matches your search term). Equally interesting to see the Facebook page sitting two spots higher (#6) in the search results. (more)

  • Biking to Milwaukee from Chicago

    I noticed a post a few weeks back regarding Chicago’s stated ambition to be the best big city in America for cycling. I just love the message there, and thought it made sense to share with my cycling friends on Facebook. There was some immediate snark from a few non-cycling friends (not surprising), but in general everyone is excited to see big plans come together. (more)
