Is This Happening?

As companies grasp to what has worked and what needs to work in order to continue being profitable, the question to ask is, is this happening?

The Almighty List of Lessons

Image

Is a blog but a list of lessons? This post by the founder of Fab, has to be the best comprehensive piece of advice for any technology startup doer out there currently. Sure I disagree with a few of the 90 statements- maybe this is telling and that this current piece of writing is really just what happens to make sense to me.

Goldberg:

Think 5 steps ahead. Very hard to do, but it’s what differentiates great companies from good companies. Think where things are going, what the impact of today’s decisions will be tomorrow. What the chain of events is likely to be. Tough stuff, but so important.

The Book Has Been Changed :)

Image

What was once Telling Time: Strategy for Humanists is now Leading with the Intangible, In Business and Practice. My, ahem, publisher, thought it would a good move knowing where my strengths are. The crowds of people that have waiting for the former will now have to make do with the new and improved format. As I get farther into the writing process, I will share a sample PDF so that you can get a look into the outline of this work. Looking to connect with great minds, drop me a line if you are interested in what I am doing.

After a Hiccup, the Blog is Back

After a minor hosting hiccup, iantyner.com is back! I’ve since switched hosts, which should be better moving forward. Still working on the book, and would love to hear some feedback from you, the reader.

Open Sourcing?

With much progression made in 2011 with my company, it’s a good time to start working on the book. This will probably take up less time than I think – I’ve never written a book, much harder then I ever thought! Slated with a 2013 release, Telling Time will have to be a a major focus though. Thinking about open sourcing some chapters, what do you think?

A Stoic Business Life?

“The secret of all victory lies in the organization of the non-obvious.” – Marcus Aurelius

Image

Having started a company and writing a book, I’d like to think that represents living a Stoic business life. This might seem contradictory as material gains are not part of that religionosophy, but in this unethical world that we live in, it just seemed like the appropriate mantra to live by during the continual entrepreneurial process.

Welcome to My Blog

Image

Welcome! Take a seat and enjoy the ride… this is the outlet where I will be writing about my thoughts of life and business. It will also serve as a scratch pad for my upcoming book, Telling Time – Strategy for Humanists, which is scheduled for a 2013 release.

If at any point, you the reader, feel the need to make a blunt critique or bare the honest truth of any ideas expressed on this blog- do not hesitate to flame me!

As they say, writing begets writing, in that vein I will try to update this log once a week with helpful hints, lessons learned, and teachings that I seek out in my quest of reaching 9th dan and then some. Since my vocabulary is actually fairly limited, I will also make an effort to refer to the old dictionary and thesaurus- if you read a word that seems utterly out of place, now you know why.

With this said, let the blogging begin and hold on because this is just another dogleg only oriented golf course that should be as fun for you as it is for me. Vale.
