What I do when I’m not at work

Volunteer at my wife’s school garden, hang out with family, read books, drink wine!

If I weren’t doing this, I’d …

… be a rock star, or some form of inspirational author/artist.

Who I’m following on Twitter

Seven thousand friends, but really Twitter is my source to keep up with a rapidly changing world. Following @rgmcgrath, @tom_peters, @danielburrus

On my desk right now

iPad Mini, two books (Flash Foresight by Daniel Burrus, The End of Competitive Advantage by Rita McGrath), MacBook Pro, ScanSnap scanner, iPhone 5

The best advice I ever got

If it was easy, everybody would do it.
