Awhile back, Chase Reeves made an excellent desktop image out of the hypothetical title for Merlin Mann‘s book. “Cut the bullshit. Do the hard stuff. Start making things you love.” I’m really not an inspirational phrase kind of guy. I don’t have pictures hanging in my office of bald eagles with quotes underneath them. Nevertheless, this phrase just resonates with me and Chase used a vintage hand plane which pushes even more of my buttons. I still find myself setting it as my desktop when I start losing my way. Chase was even nice enough to make a gray version for me.
