When Are You Available? Breaking the Back of Meeting Request Loops | Digital Lizard, LLC

One of the things I hate most, as an entrepreneur and modern knowledge worker, is the never ending trouble of scheduling meetings. Meetings themselves are a death nail of productivity, to be sure, but that’s a whole other topic....

The Warrior's Journey: J Jones

Warriors give of themselves, bear witness to atrocity, and press on in the face of adversity and danger. They do so with the distant yet omnipresent hope that this war will be the last, theirs alone, and that their sons will never learn what they themselves know. But there is always another war, another reach across borders which necessitates boots on the ground. Still they stand ready to visit violence on those who would do them and their countrymen harm. 

However briefly, we regularly enjoy that brief fleeting moment, when the Superpower and its enemies stand around reloading; what Thomas Jefferson called peace. In these times, which are upon us with the end of the war in Iraq and the near conclusion of the Afghan campaign, we take stock. We bury our dead, patch our wounds, and begin the process of healing. Sadly, it is then that we begin to recognize those social problems that were hidden for so many years behind gun smoke and chest-beating. 

At the end of any given day in America, 53 veterans have died awaiting a decision on their VA disability claims and 22 have taken their own lives, while over 300,000 sleep on the streets and in shelters throughout the land they gave so much to defend. This is not a tale of valor and bloodshed, but a damage assessment of the aftermath. It is a description of the greatest free society that has ever existed in human history, as seen by one of the men who broke their own bodies to ensure that it remained as such.
