Kinyungu

read less, think more

About

I read too much and think too little.  I also learn by writing. So, I started this blog. My current obsessions are:

  • Starting Businesses – I love the challenge of building something sustaining from scratch. I love the chaos and fluidity, and how the first few steps are the most important ones. I love that many entrepreneurs take the wrong first steps and still make a dramatic impact.
  • Being Present – I call it SPF40 – I want to live Still, Present, and Focused (and I just turned 40) . I need to apply this SPF40 sunscreen to protect myself from being distracted.  Being present also allows me to see the future more clearly.
  • Living in Kenya – We’re from Chicago, but we’re living in Kenya. Cross-cultural living is crazy, challenging, and awesome.

By the way, “Kinyungu”is a nickname that my friend Njoki gave me. In Kikuyu, it means “big pot.” Hopefully she meant that I had lots of good stuff to share. Or that I eat a lot.
