The last few months have been challenging. The responsibilities of running the teams at Honestly and having significant roles at LOFT and CrewPay, have forced me to be better at thinking. It sounds crazy, I know, learning how to think right. I always thought I was pretty good at it, but most of my decisions were made at the surface level.

I’ve always marveled out how true software and computer programmers are able to think 3 or 4 moves and hours, days, weeks ahead with any input.
I wouldn’t say I’m good at it yet, but second-order and third-order thinking is where I’m investing some personal development time. I’ve found this blog helpful if you’re interested:
