Life works on a few laws, observations gleaned from organizational management. Some of these Laws are very useful for every day life. The first one is Metcafe’s Law aka there are too many people on this team! Why didn’t the family know this? etc. Per wikipedia, Metcalfe’s law states that the financial value or influence of… Continue reading Laws of Life
So I messed up and I’m still not sure how. You see, I run this blog and an unrelated product, called GamerSusan. It’s a fun product for board gamers. Think a lazy susan but for board games! You can check that out here, but if you’re not into that, and got an email, or vice… Continue reading Apologies & Clarification
So you’re wondering – why hasn’t this Happy Wisdom guy posted in a while? Well, big news. The HappyWisdom podcast is on the way! We’re tackling the big topics first, starting with faith and modern life. I’m excited to share what I’ve learned along the way, and eventually have some guests. In a highly complex… Continue reading Not Dead Yet!
Did you know you know that there’s a good chance that Plato read Moses? Or that the concept of the Atom predates science by thousands of years? My training is in Engineering and then Organizational Development. We don’t get much into the humanities, so I’ve had to engage the philosophy/theology track on my own. I… Continue reading Philosophy Anyone?
For books that really hit, I’ve decided to process them a little further in my summary, so others can see what’s inside without doing the work. My goal for these is simple – to get people to buy the book. In that spirit, let’s get started. Promise, I’ll keep it short. Indeed, if you want… Continue reading Desire of the Everlasting Hills
The problem with blogs is that they have dates on them. 🙂 It’s 2022! Wow Blogs are a tough business! I know that last year I kinda (well, totally) stopped posting because I decided to focus on two things – my upcoming Kickstarter and my writing. Both are incredible timesinks so, please understand. If you… Continue reading What’s Going On?
This is a ~20′ Reniell Boat with the engine included, and I can get it to you for a low price! Just kidding. I took this picture in downtown Seattle on Elliott Ave, near the campus of Expedia and that cool Amgen Helix bridge that leads to the still-lovely Centennial Park. This part of Seattle… Continue reading Intrinsic Worth
Yeah, it’s been a tough stretch. What it shows is a lack of connection to each other, a loss of that mental model that bonds us to the community and the world. Therefore, we at HappyWisdom have decided that Philosophy is the cure. Philosophy at its best provides a structure and framework to start with. It turns out that our generation isn’t the first to come upon these issues.
It’s safe to say that most of us think 2020 was a rough year, to put it politely. Most of the articles I’ve read are either laced with despair ( 2021 might suck as well, etc. ) or profanity (even for non-profits). HappyWisdomers know better than to fall into these traps of negativity. Yes, we… Continue reading The KALM Way to Put 2020 Behind You
This blog is steadfastly non-political for a reason – it doesn’t seem like a path to happiness, and often is quite the opposite. Yet, when I look at people at these rallies and see their hopeful, smiling faces, I wonder if perhaps this is a road to happiness. Seeing throngs of smiling people, one could… Continue reading Can Politics Make You Happy?
