Mr. Grip

April 7, 2018 at 05:24AM Fix worn and stripped screw holesI work in an independent hardware store that carries a plethora of interesting items that Home Depot and Lowes will not. Mr. Grip is by far my favorite dohicky. It provides you with a way to keep a stripped out screw screwed in. Essentially Mr. Grips are little metal strips that are perforated much like the fine side of a cheese grater. If you cut off a strip as long as your screw, then fold it over like a taco, you can jam it down into the hole that has become stripped out. Simply run the screw back in next to the strip and, presto, the screw holds like new. Our bathroom door is held up with nothing but these. Works in metal, wood and even cheap particle board.-- Brad Thompson04/7/18

Calendly/Mark hard to reach places/Website status check

April 8, 2018 at 05:24AM Recomendo: issue no. 89Free calendar scheduling
I use Calendly to manage Kevin’s calendar. Calendly connects to Google calendar, blocks off the times you are busy and creates a unique and permanent url to share so people can self-schedule. The scheduled event is then automatically added to your Google calendar. There is a basic, free plan that does this and paid plans with more features. — CDLong-nosed precision marker
In my workshop I use a Dixon needle-nosed marker for maximum accuracy. This is like a wire-thin sharpie that can reach deep into holes or tug close along edges to make a thin indelible line or dot. The handle is fat for your grip, but the business end is only 2mm wide and several inches long (like a hummingbird beak) making it perfect for precision marks on fabric, plastics, metals and wood. This Dixon is a slightly cheaper version of a similar Pica brand marker recommended by Adam Savage. — KKWebsite statu…

Why even bother to think about strategy?

April 10, 2018 at 07:24AM There's confusion between tactics and strategy. It's easy to get tied up in semantic knots as you work to figure out the distinction. It's worth it, though, because strategy can save you when tactics fail.If a tactic fails, you should consider abandoning it.But that doesn't mean that there's something wrong with your strategy. Your strategy is what you keep doing even after you walk away from a tactic.A real estate broker could decide that her goal is to get more listings.And her strategy is to achieve that by becoming the most trusted person in town.There are then 100 tactics she can use to earn that trust. She can coordinate events, sponsor teams, host community meetings in her office, sponsor the local baseball team, be transparent about her earnings, hire countless summer interns at a fair wage, run seminars at the local library, etc. ...It doesn't matter if one or two or five of the tactic…

Russia orders immediate block of Telegram messaging app

April 13, 2018 at 05:15AM A Russian court has ruled that messaging app Telegram must be blocked in the country. The ruling follows months of battles between Telegram and Roskomnadzor, Russia’s telecommunications watchdog. Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) wants to access user data from Telegram through the sharing of encryption keys, but Telegram has refused to comply even after a court ruling.Russian news agency Tass reports that the messaging service will be “blocked immediately” following the latest court ruling, and that the ban will be in place until Telegram provides decryption keys to the FSB. It’s not clear how immediate the ban will be, though. The Financial Times reports that the ban will likely take place once Telegram has exhausted the appeals process over the next month.Russia implemented strict anti-terrorism laws in 2016, which required messaging services to provide authorities with the ability to decrypt messages. Telegram has…

Clickbaity entrepreneur advice sites love their lists of “80,000 productivity hacks for busy entrepreneurs.” They paddle around in the shallow end of the pool because they’re scared to dive into the things that are actually holding entrepreneurs back.At GrowthLab, we harbor no such anxieties. We’re here to tell you: all of the productivity tips in the world won’t help if you’re actually suffering from something deeper: burnout.Numbers don’t lie: burnout is a problem that entrepreneurs have to face. Last week, the Harvard Business Review published the findings of a study on burnout in entrepreneurs showing that 25% of entrepreneurs felt “moderately burned out,” and that 3% felt “strongly burned out.” That’s more than a quarter of people you might think would be more motivated and energized than anybody — who are experiencing things like cynicism, detachment, and disillusionment instead.We asked some Zero to Launch students t…

What will change when millennials lead?

April 13, 2018 at 09:12PM A reporter emailed me to set up a call to talk about millennials. There was a time in my life when I would have ignored the email. I’m tired of talking about millennials. But now that I’m home with kids, I say yes to reporters so I have someone interesting to talk to.This one asked me about how millennials will change leadership. She wanted a quote about David Solomon – quintessential BS-laden story that millennials eat up. He’s the CEO-in-waiting at Goldman Sachs who is also a DJ and walked his kids to school. And then I remembered the other reason I don’t do calls with journalists: I go on tirades.Walked his kids to school! So devoted!Really, how do people believe this crap. Here’s what it’s like to be a millionaire and walk your kids to school: someone else wakes them up and gets them ready. And then there’s a car service to pick you up at the school and drive you to work.In the past you got a gold medal for…
