Still thinking about Toms Sachs and his  10 Bullets  since I went to the Space Program: Mars  earlier this summer . I have been trying to live at least half of these bullet points everyday (especially be on time, work to code, and keep a list). It’s helping me to form good habits for doing good work.

creative mornings

I haven’t missed a single Creative Mornings since the day I moved to New York. Each one has brought me inspiration, a kick in the pants and free breakfast. When they decided to kickstart their online archive, I was more than happy to give a few bucks to the cause. If you have ever been to a CM event, watched one of their many videos (including F*** You, Pay Me, a personal favorite) or attempted to run a 33 city series of free monthly events I ask you to considering giving them a little support over at their Kickstarter.

Day one in Cannes was a success: pain au chocolat, beach, baguette & cheese, walking the boardwalk / riding carousels, gnocchi & rosé. Below are a few photos from our first day. Above is the World Trade Center from JFK before takeoff.
