Linked: Merlin Mann on The Great Discontent

Over the years, I’ve learned to be a little bit easier on myself while simultaneously trying to be more realistic about what I can actually do. I think a lot about do-ability with whatever silly project I want to do next. I don’t think about whether something is easy or not: I think about what trade-offs I have to accept in order to do it well, on time, and on budget. – Merlin Mann (The Great Discontent)

One of my personal heroes in a great interview.
Read this one on the website, its typography alone is picture-perfect.

And if you really want to do it the right way: filter a Kenya, put on Mogwai’s Mr. Beast and read it on a rainy sunday afternoon.
