Episode Overview

In this episode of BizCraft we discuss next steps for Carl & nGen Works, how we all work too hard and time as a commodity.

We talked about:

Carl’s Irrelevance Strategy post:

Micheal Lopp “volatiles and stables

Questions I’m getting, “Why would you do that?”
“Somebody has to be in charge, you can’t just leave.”
“What about when someone needs to get fired, or somebody wants a raise? Who handles that stuff?”
But the big one is “What are you going to do now?”

The Busy Trap link that Daniel Burka recently posted to Facebook.

The goal of the future is full unemployment, so we can play. That’s why we have to destroy the present politico-economic system.” This may sound like the pronouncement of some bong-smoking anarchist, but it was actually Arthur C. Clarke

Then we got into this “Your most valuable asset” post – listen as Carl get’s angry then winds up agreeing with the writer 🙂
