Only The Curious Will Survive

July 31, 2020 | Tags: , , ,

This post is going to sound a bit dark for an optimist like me, but remember—optimism is about accepting a changed world; happiness isn’t a requirement. Few of us will forget 2020: a global health pandemic, a reckoning on racism, online learning for our children, online work for us, and yes, murder hornets. Just halfway […] Read More

Join us on August 8th

July 28, 2020

In May, we announced that we had acquired the assets, talents and expertise of Ecoprint in an effort to shift our print and experiential manufacturing operations towards sustainability. Through our work with Ecoprint, we are learning more about a broad spectrum of environmental concerns, as well as concrete ways for each of us to improve […] Read More

You’re as healthy as your friends are

July 17, 2020

Assorted wisdom for keeping a business open during COVID I’ve written extensively on our work experiences outside the office. I thought it would be helpful to share what we’ve learned through our efforts to keep the printing, mailing and fulfillment operations running smoothly. At the end of March, I asked a group of senior managers […] Read More

Preparing Ourselves for Change

July 2, 2020

My wife is passionate about her alma mater. This week, she was texting friends about booking a house near campus for next year’s reunion weekend. “Really?” I asked. Her college is working on a plan to return students to campus in stages this fall. They plan to provide individual dorm rooms to each student and […] Read More

Race and Us

June 5, 2020

Over the past week, I’ve been talking with family, friends and coworkers about racial equity. The recent video evidence presented has been overwhelming. George Floyd being suffocated by a white police officer, Ahmaud Arbery being shot and killed while jogging through a white residential neighborhood and the racist harassment of Christian Cooper as he was […] Read More

Time to get back to the office?

May 22, 2020

It seems like months ago that our school system decided to close for 10 days in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19. Ah yes, that actually was months ago. Over the past three weeks, I’ve enjoyed telling stories about working from home, getting some fresh air in Rock Creek Park and most recently, […] Read More

How does this end?

May 15, 2020

This question came up at our dinner table last week. Home-cooked meal number 67, to be exact. We’ve been skirting the subject, as discussing the realities of the coming months only adds to our stressful living situation. But it now seems that my family is coming to terms with our COVID future. February-like normalcy isn’t […] Read More

Finding New Ways to Connect from Afar

May 12, 2020

Like you, many of us have been working from home over the last two months. Some of us have small children at home, some of us are in isolation, some of us have seven grown (or nearly grown) family members living under one roof. This is all to say that, no matter the situation, WFH […] Read More

The Air Seems Cleaner Right?

May 7, 2020

My house is crowded these days. I have a small office (closet) where I remotely run our business. My wife and daughters are also working remotely on all the other flat surfaces in the house. I have a son finishing up a semester of college from his bedroom and twin boys who are pretending to […] Read More

A Time for Optimism

April 30, 2020

We are in desperate need of optimism today. I believe it could save us. Now, I’m not talking about blissful ignorance or feelings of hopefulness towards future events. We need the kind of optimism focused on the half empty glass in front of us. The one that needs filling. We need optimism focused on today—not […] Read More
