Ok, I lived in Taiwan and Malaysia in the 80s, so wasn’t aware. Were the Valley Girls considered smart? I assume yes bc Silicon Valley has a lot of smart people. Uptalk seems to be growing in popularity when I listen to podcasts.

That makes sense! When you’re not confident in what you say, you may naturally end the statement with a question to hedge against being wrong, being questioned, etc. When I review my podcast before publishing, it feels weird to hear my occasional uptalk.

What did your diversity training teach you about uptalk? I’m trying to understand the point of regularly ending a statement with a rise in intonation. Is this something that is preferred in Canada? I want to try and work on my speaking during quarantine. Thanks

What do you think is the reason why people speak like they are asking a question when making a statement? Uptalk or upspeak they call it. There’s no such thing as uptalk in Mandarin or Spanish. But these are the only other languages I know. What other language is uptalk common?

Freedom is always a good motivator. Staying free is another one. Once you are free, everything becomes self-imposed, due to the freedom to choose. Interesting dilemma.

Social status? I don’t agree. It’s much better being a nobody.

After watching Eurovision Fire Saga, I’d check out Edinburgh, Scotland if I were you. Looks like a lovely place.

Good idea on a mastermind group. Just gotta find the right people. I’d love to find people who want to enjoy life and relax more on something they’ve already spent time building. There is a lot of petal to the metal folks online, and I’m just not there anymore.

When you surpass them, then what? Yes, being smart is overrated. Nice G500 btw. That was the vehicle I bought back in 2003 after MB bought back the distribution rights from a Santa Fe dealer. Fun, but my biggest mistake! It resulted in this rule:

Cool. I have a feeling my commitment is burning other people out. But yes, if you can give your site at least 1-2 years of consistency, growth is an inevitability.

I made a commitment to publish 3X a week for 10 years in 2009. On July 1, 2020 it will be 11 years. My word has been kept. Now I think about what’s next.

What are some ways you trick yourself into not quitting? I’m always looking for motivation to keep on going, no matter what. But obviously, things are tougher nowadays. Being a dad is my greatest motivator, but what else?

Yeah, a little bit of work everyday is a nice cadence. I love to get up early, get something done in order to feel guilt-free doing whatever for the rest of the day. It's like paying yourself first. Whatever money you have left over, enjoy!

Strategically, it’s simply unwise to do biz dev or ask for anything on a Monday, before lunch, or right before closing time. I guess on the positive, if you know these basic rules of sales, you can get far ahead of the masses who don’t.

Why does everything pile up and explode on a Monday? Can we change work culture so that a little bit gets done on the weekend so there isn’t this mad rush? Wednesday is a much better time to ask for things and announce news. Thanks
