How to be polite
I can’t say I’m polite. I’m shy. I need a way to differentiate between not talking a lot and politeness.


How I finally became productive after radically reducing my to-do list
In this four years, I’ve run be-yourself publication on the side. The advice here addresses how to manage side projects. Imagine you have anywhere from half an hour to a couple of hours to yourself after work, and taking care of the kids.


What love isn’t
For the days you’re not sure.


Don’t box yourself with uncertainty. Boundaries are only real if you believe them to be. There is nothing you can’t do so trust in that.
