Khalid , Khalid" As members of Seal Team 6 were clearing the compound that Osama Bin Laden was living in, his son took cover behind a wall. The Seals whispered his name and curiosity got the best of him. He peered around the wall and was shot in the face. #GlobalRecon #SEALs #SealTeam6 #DevGru #OsamaBinLaden #Pakistan #Shooters #Tier1 #NSW #Warriors

I am really sorry for this man and his family… This is a real tragedy…. Not only because this man was killed, but because this hatred directed against Muslims, has reached its peak! These people are not safe anymore! They are suspected of terrorism just because of a few thugs!

People say all these words and bad things to Muslims, but what about themselves?

Trust that the man you see now is a shadow of what lies beneath. If you would, give him the love that will enable him to see it for himself. To a lost soul, such a treasure is worth its weight in gold. Worth its weight in dreams.

I prefer the color blue to any other. The scent of lilacs in your hair is a source of constant torment. I despise figs. Lastly, I will never forget, all the days of my life, the memories of last night—
For nothing, not the sun, not the rain, not even the brightest star in the darkest sky, could begin to compare to the wonder of you.



I’m pleased to announce that The Hustle Economy is out now and available wherever books are sold!

The absurdly prolific Jessica Hagy (of the blog Indexed) and I rounded up a bunch of talented creatives and asked them to share their best wisdom on surviving the gig economy. I edited their words and Jessica illustrated with her signature pithy charts. Now, the book exists! 

It’s a particular thrill to help so many people I admire so much share their insights, and I hope whoever picks up a copy finds something in there that helps them. It remains a challenging economy and the best way I’ve found to navigate that has been asking people like these for advice as often as they’ll let me.
