Community Update #14: Boards, boxes, and heresy

Here are some interesting and inspiring things we’ve come across lately.

Hildy Gottlieb reviews The Usual Error

Our friend Hildy interviewed us about The Usual Error. She talks about how she applies it when talking with boards and also in her personal life. There’s a blog post and an audio interview right here.

A short story about ladders, boxes, and possibility

This story is beautiful and inspiring. It’s kind of like Cath Duncan‘s version of the Freak Revolution Manifesto.

Kyeli’s heretical thoughts on productivity

Kyeli and 35 other productive heretics share their advice in this post, 36 Secrets the Productivity Gurus Won’t Tell You (But Our Heretics Will), by Ali Hale and Thursday Bram.

Fascinating and inspiring.

How great leaders inspire action

This TEDx talk by Simon Sinek was fodder for some great conversation between me and Kyeli about why we’re so passionate about the Freak Revolution, and why people resonate with what we have to say. It explains what Apple, the Wright Brothers, and Martin Luther King all have in common.
