9,999 pieces of crap

I like the way Tom Webster thinks. In his latest newsletter, he talks about the “fail forward” mentality.

Here’s a phrase that’s used to promote failing fast

Edison made 10,000 failed versions of the light bulb.

Here’s what it should be

Edison made 9,999 crappy lightbulbs and shipped 1.

The WordPress Yo-Yo

It’s that time again. Github and gitpages you’ve been great. But I’m lazy. Lazier than lazy lately.

So it’s time to head on back to wordpress. I’ll be doing this slowly. So chances are, this site will flicker and flub, maybe even a blorp to a final kapow!

Thanks for all the fish.

My Personality (2020 Edition)

The past year has been a tough one. Let’s distract myself for a moment to see how my personality test holds up to last years.

Your type is: INFP

“Questor”. High capacity for caring. Emotional face to the world. High sense of honor derived from internal values. 4.4% of total population.

Introverted (I) 67.74% / Extroverted (E) 32.26%
Intuitive (N) 82.14% / Sensing (S) 17.86%
Feeling (F) 73.33% / Thinking (T) 26.67%
Perceiving (P) 80% / Judging (J) 20%

Type 1 Orderliness |||||| 30%
Type 2 Helpfulness |||||||||||||||||| 73%
Type 3 Image Awareness |||||||||||||| 53%
Type 4 Individuality |||||||||||||||||| 80%
Type 5 Rationality |||||||||| 33%
Type 6 Cautiousness |||| 16%
Type 7 Adventurousness ||||||||||||||| 66%
Type 8 Aggressiveness |||||||||||| 46%
Type 9 Calmness |||||||||||||||||| 73%

Your main type is Type 4

Your variant stacking is spsxso

type score type behavior motivation
4 24 I must be unique/different to survive.
2 22 I must be helpful and caring to survive.
9 22 I must maintain peace/calm to survive.
7 20 I must be fun and entertained to survive.
3 16 I must be impressive and attractive to survive.

High level – still INFP Type 4 with the same variant. Lower level – I seemed to have taken some of my rationality and replaced with aggressiveness.
I think we all are feeling it. That – and my kid is 2. You try and survive that without a little more aggressiveness.

If you’re curious about yours, this was made using the Jung+Enneagram test.

Testing Netlify CMS

Testing a netlify cms post. There’s a few things I’m still wrapping my head around. But interesting so far.

Update: Well that was interesting. Did some strange post not found. But after refresh worked. Does it always do that?

Update 2020-09-08: Never used Netlify for this, so not as interesting as I thought.

Hat’s off to all producers

Hat’s off to all of those who create.

I commend all of you who produce something with any form of regularity.

It’s my weakness.

You do it through all the excuses. Through exhaustion. Through nervousness.
Through repetition. Through drinks with friends. Through desires to binge watch. Through child vomit.
Through partners to-do’s. Through bill payments. Through little voices inside your head. Through sickness.
Through happiness. Through fear. Through success. Through confusion. Through it all.

You hit publish.
