The big event of the week for me is, unsurprisingly, my move to San Francisco. I’m on the road at present and should be arriving by Sunday afternoon. I can’t wait!
Book I’m reading: Platform by Michael Hyatt – A modern classic of a business book about how to stand out in this overly saturated world.
Trip I’m planning: Monterrey with the wife. I’ve never been and everyone raves about it. The first of many weekend trips around California, no doubt.
Netflix show I’m watching: Dexter… for the millionth time. Plus the great Ken Burns series The West.
Hike I’m planning: Mount Tamalpais in Marin.
Current dream vacation: Southeast Asia—Thailand, Laos, Vietnam.
Current frustration: Driving across the Great Plains. Why so boring?
Blog post to check out:Unemployment Never Sounded So Sweet – it’s my manifesto for my new life in California
Articles I’m reading:

- Elon Musk: The World’s Raddest Man
Podcasts I’m enjoying:
Quote I’m pondering: “The simple willingness to improvise is more vital, in the long run, than research.” – Rolf Potts
Person I’m admiring: Alexander Hamilton (yes, I too have been listening obsessively to the Hamilton soundtrack—I know I’m not the only one)
Secret I don’t want anyone to know about: I’m worried that I’ll be a total failure outside of my Chicago safety bubble.
Goal for next week: Spend some much-needed quality time with my wife in my new San Francisco home!
