Hello Merlin, I found your site...

Hello Merlin,

I found your site while googling for ways to be more disciplined at work. It had helped me to improve a lot not only in work but also in personal life. Thanks a lot for that!

My co-workers don't speak english, so I had taken some of the articles I've found usefull and traduce them to spanish for them to read.

I think that's Flaneuse could do so while listening to your podcast, won't get the whole stuff but at least the facts that matter.

The advantage of text over audio for me is that I'm a very fast reader, while listening to a recorded speech I've to keep on the talker's speed and that's frustrating.

Recorded audio is an issue if I'm at work and only has seconds to spare between tasks, but if I'm in Barbados, relaxing by the pool, with my ipod, then Audio recordings can take all the time of the world.

But of course, I'm not in Barbados anymore hehehe.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
