Increments is a show for technologists about leveraging the in-between moments. Those moments you come up for air, and take a beat.
They say music is about the space between the notes, and just like music - growth happens in those moments between projects. Increments won't always give you answers, but will create the space for you to find them
Episode 106: Frenetic
Someone I know, someone I consider a mentor, recently called me 'frenetic.' And it was a fair criticism - but one I think that could use a little explaining.
Episode 105: The Website
Continuing with the theme of commitments, I wanted to share a story from earlier in my career. In 2007 I launched a website that went viral. It was bigger than I could have imagined, bigger than I'd dreamed, bigger than I'd intended, and demanded more commitment from me than I had prepared to give.

We'll be coming back to the topic of Growth many times throughout, but for now we're pivoting to Season 1 where we'll be talking a bit about fears and vulnerability.
