My morning run on the Seine, Paris.

It was 7AM and besides industrial offices and my hotel room, I’ve yet to see much of Paris. SO, I wanted to get out for jog yesterday morning. I did a short trip along the Seine and even ran through the square at the Louvre. Pics below :)

First, kudos to Dave Morin and the product team at Path on a seriously beautiful app. I have no idea whether or not this is going to be their blow out success, but it’s definitely in the right direction.

I’m very curious to see just how quickly people start copying the menu design here above. It’s snappy, simple, ergonomicly perfect, and can fit a variety of options in a small mobile space.

Personally, I’ll be using Path. Hope to see you on there.

Reputation

Last night on my flight from DC back to SF, I spent some time thinking about reputation and it’s many pitfalls…

The conclusion I came to was that spending time pondering what people think of you or how your reputation will be built may be the biggest single waste of time ever, and ironically, it is likely the worst thing you can do to build a strong reputation. Personally, its a curse of mine. I hate it, but I think about it far to often. “How will this action be perceived” is the wrong way to think… instead, it should be approached, “what will this action accomplish”.

In business you’re reputation is build on what you deliver, what you accomplish, and how you execute. You’ll be remember by your actions, how you treat, manage, and reward people. A solid reputation is surely NOT built through spending time wondering, “what does this person think of me”, but rather, “what am I accomplishing”.

You can’t control your luck, but the harder you work, the luckier you get.
