A cool guy with cool ideas
One of the Blogs I read is written by a guy by the name of Brad Feld. He's a VC in Boulder who I had the pleasure of meeting a few times back when I lived in Colorado. He's a super intelligent guy who is into all sorts of things and definately marches to his own drummer. What I find fascinating and motivating is the way he constantly experiments with how his life is arranged, always looking for a way to get more out of it. He doesn't treat his personal life and his work as disparate elements but as part of a whole to be managed.
As an example of what he does, check out this example of how he's integrated his running and work with a custom treadmill workstation in his office. Now, how many normal companies would ever think of allowing people to do this....we can all dream.
