I love music but I don’t want an algorithm to tell me what to listen to.

I carefully curated a 629 song 1990s Spotify playlist. That intense and lengthy experience — seriously, my list is over 45 hours long! — impressed on me why it is better to curate your own life experience rather than rely on an algorithm to do so.

In my new episode…

Tim Horan and Mark LeBusque discuss the benefits of lone wolves, why playing nice isn’t always nice and how we confuse collaboration with compliance on their podcast episode.
Tim Horan and Mark LeBusque.

My recent conversation with Mark LeBusque on his Simply, Practically Human podcast was a breath of fresh air. No B.S., just two lone wolves meeting up to deeply explore what’s on our minds. If you want to listen to us riff on why playing nice isn’t always nice and how most workplaces dress up compliance as collaboration, tune in to our conversation on or below.

Creative people appear messy and illegible to hiring managers who are solely focussed on process.

The hiring process for creative people is broken. That’s because creativity is viewed with suspicion by organizations today.

If a truly creative person slips through the HR department’s filters, it’s because they’ve had to hide their identity. Businesses need creative people but they’d prefer new hires to follow stale processes rather than bring new ideas.

Time for this madness to stop! My new podcast episode is for hiring managers who are prepared to get honest about recruiting talented people.

Blue vs Red politics remind me of the Cola Wars of the 1980s.

I would love to live in a world where we retire the idea of Blue vs Red. The eternal battle between primary colors is a tired concept that’s as dull and unhealthy as the Cola Wars of the 1980s.

The global ‘health crisis’ has infantilized us. We now accept without question the idea that risk can be excised from our lives like an unwelcome tumor by a skilled surgeon.

We are the child who wails in distress when the scoop of delicious ice-cream atop their cone falls into the…

I watched two Netflix documentaries — and

The former features a bunch of ‘experts’ warning us about the very thing they created while the latter features an individual who chose to have his own unmediated experience of the world by befriending an octopus.
