Unrealistic Ridiculous Expectations in the Workplace

There aren’t many things more frustrating than having to follow the directions of someone who has no idea what they’re talking about.

It’s never easy telling someone with little knowledge of a field that their ideas are literally impossible.

This problem is exacerbated by the fact that most people are unwilling to accept the idea that what they want can’t be done, even though they were the ones who asked your expert opinion in the first place.


You better take a second look at the CTA map.

Thrillist Chicago published the first CTA Bar Map and it’s brilliant. .

Sam Tsui - Make It Up

Sam Tsui has to be one of my favorite YouTube artists - hands down. Both Sam and his buddy Kurt Hugo Schneider have been at this for over 5 years. From the spine tingling arrangements, creative musical engeneering to the out of this world videos.  

This is Make It Up … also known as my theme song. lol.  If you notice, it’s all done in one continuous shot. It’s a fun original song, and great CD! It’s friggin’ awesome watching as this community of YouTube artists start to grow and I can’t wait to see what’s next.
