I've been thinking a lot about friction lately. Especially as I'm working from home and have more distractions than ever before.

Friction is simply a tool in our toolbox. Are you using it to your advantage?

⏫ We should increase friction in the things we want to stop doing. (example: move distracting apps to a distant page and folder on your phone).

⏬ We should decrease friction for the things we want to do more (example: I've started putting a book next to my bed so I read more often).

These ideas are not my own :) Thanks to Nir Eyal and his book, Indistractible, for helping me think about this.

Beautiful things can take a long time to build.

Spent the last few days at Glacier National Park in Montana. What did I Learn?

- God is majestic and all powerful. I was filled with awe seeing some of his large creations up close.
- Beauty takes a long time to build. The mountains of Glacier National Park began forming 170 million years... if God can be this patient with his creations, maybe I can be a little more patient with the businesses I’m building.
- Connecting with nature brings clarity. As we enjoyed the beautiful landscapes, I disconnected from a lot of life’s stresses. It was really nice, and I’m coming back with more clarity and direction.

What did you do/learn this weekend?

My first business was an absolute failure...

❌ My first business was an absolute failure... 🚫

I grew up in a large family. My Dad, a small business owner and entrepreneur, taught me to work hard and dream big. I remember some of my favorite moments with him were talking about business or coming up with new business ideas.

⚡️ When I was 16, I started a business with a goal to sell and install wind turbines and solar panels. I contacted a manufacturer, and even became an official reseller.

😩 I didn’t sell one wind turbine or solar panel.

🙌🏻 That said, I learned valuable skills. I built a website for my little business. Admittedly, it wasn't a great website, but that was the start to the path that I'm still on today.

🤔 Was it really a failure? I guess it depends on how you define success and failure. What metrics do you use to measure them?

Tell me about some of your "failures"! 👇🏻
