In this Do Lectures talk, Les McKeown describes the 7 stages every business goes through. Some stages you don’t want to be in. And some you want to stay in forever. This talk was just what I needed on this Monday morning.
Also highly recommend Les’ book titled Share your vision. Inspire others. Achieve the impossible.
Fascinating: what3words is a global addressing system based on a grid of 57 trillion 3mx3m squares. Each square has been allocated a unique, fixed 3 word address.

Format just launched a beautiful new film series called InFrame in collaboration with crazy talented Bas Berkhout. The first film of the series (above) offers a beautiful glimpse into the life of Brooklyn based photographer Jessica Lehrman.
Makes me so happy when good people collaborate. Check out InFrame.
Freitag launched a new backpack called Hazzard. Great simple shape and practical size! I’d totally sport one!
Not familiar with Freitag? All of their bags are made out of super durable and recycled truck tarp and are virtually indestructible. Some of my Freitag bags are 16 years old and still going strong.
