What I’m Playing
- Of course, more Advanced Squad Leader with Doug. We are in the middle of a German / Dutch early war campaign.
- I played Combat Commander: Europe with my young friend Peter who just shipped off for US Army basic training.
- I taught newbie friend Spence how to play Twilight Struggle and it has reignited the flame for me to play more on my iPad. I also tricked out my 1ed box with some foam core inserts I built.
What I’m Contemplating
- The Senior Engineer’s Guide to Helping Others Make Decisions – Outstanding article here with memorable examples about how we lead (and don’t lead) folks that we are mentoring.
- The Product Manager’s Essential Reading List for 2018 – Can’t argue with most of these, though Gödel, Escher, Bach is a bit of a stretch.
- These 13 Exercises Will Prepare You for Work’s Toughest Situations
- Meet the People Who Listen to Podcasts at Super-Fast Speeds – Raises hand. I use the Overcast app and listen at 2x speed to most of my podcasts. The app allows for podcast-specific settings which is nice for ones that often involve non-native English speakers like Rough Translation.
