The First Day of The Rest of My Life

Hello, World! I'm hoping this will be the first of many posts on this site, which I intend to use to document my journey as an entrepreneur, technologist, hobby astronomer and world traveler.

I've attempted blogging a couple of times in the past, but I failed to find a good rhythm and enough content to keep the site fresh. This time around is different; I've now got enough completed projects under my belt and a bunch of ongoing interests. I'm certain these topics will be of some help to others.

Accordingly, in the coming months I'll be writing about an eclectic collection of topics, including:

  • Astronomy planning and weather prediction
  • Home automation using devices that are compatible with Apple's HomeKit
  • Scripts that make me more productive on my Mac
  • My OmniFocus setup and quarterly PDF planner
  • My approach to building powerful presentations
  • My home and mobile office setups
  • How I take notes during meeetings and follow-up on action items
  • How I maintain a personal wiki and organize project support material
  • How I'm working to kill procrastination
  • Best practices for conducting Mastermind groups
  • Using Mathematica to analyze business data and build data and context-rich reports

These are just a few of the things I'm excited to write about. In the mean time, pardom the virtual dust as I work to get this site ready to document the rest of my life.
