Makebelieve Help, Old Butchers, and Figuring Out Who You Are (For Now)
Merlin Mann | Oct 22 2009
Here's a video I made about a video I made. Consequently, it's also about writing a book, fake self-help, the long road to developing expertise, and the ups and downs of repeatedly asking the world to tell you who you are.
The video is long. As usual. This is how it works.
I'd had this fancy idea that I'd do a DFW-style dump of annotations about what I talk about over these 40 minutes, and I might add that later, but for now here's all you need to know:
Dish soap cleans dishes; Stuart Brown says everybody needs Play; Rands has a cave where he doesn't multitask; The Dreyfus Model has five stages; Andy Hunt wants you to Think & Learn Pragmatically; my pal, Sean Hussey helped me figure some of this stuff out.
And, oh, what the heck. Here's how to supercharge your zen turbocharger with "5 Surprising House Hacks!" [even more NSFW]
