Mostyska, Ukraine – The Field Hospital In The Middle Of A War Zone

My grandmother survived the German invasion of her small town of Mostyska (then Poland, now Ukraine). Many of her friends and family were murdered there. My family built a monument there to remember them… Once again, Mostyska is at war… But instead of being ground zero for death, Mostyska is now ground zero for life. It hosts an Israeli field hospital to treat those escaping …

How I Start My Day

Every morning I use a basic journaling routine to start my day. When I fire up my computer, the first thing I do is open my note-taking tool and copy/paste in my daily template. That template looks like this: *** Today’s Date – November 30th, 2021 Gratitudes The first thing I’m grateful for today. This could be something small like.. I’m grateful for this hot …

The Power of Perspective

This is one of my favorite times of the year. When people start asking questions like, “what are you doing for New Years?” it brings into focus the fact that the year is almost over. And then, inevitably, I think…..How did the year go? How do I feel about the year ahead? Whenever I zoom out and ask those more macro questions…I keep zooming out…I …

Retooling AI For The Workplace

There was once a vision to put a personal computer in every home. Many companies today have a similar vision, which is putting a personal AI assistant for work in everyone’s hands. Think of it as a “Jarvis for Work” of sorts, except Jarvis will have cousins that each specialize in their own, unique vertical.

My Grandfather’s Last Birthday

My grandfather recently turned 96ish…and that will be the last birthday he ever has. This morning he passed away. But the days leading up to this morning he was able to spend time with his 3 children, 8 grandkids, cousins, oldest friends from Europe and newer friends from America.
