A very interesting piece on "Radical Candor" and some really good suggestions on how to implement in the workplace. I think this is a large part of the puzzle to creating a creative workplace and to move engaged employees into passionate employees.

Nice article with some hints on how to apply the idea for your own execution.

A creative workplace requires engaged and passionate employees. Given the "permission" not to hide an alternate pursuit helps encourage employee engagement. This would be another reason that employees with "side-hustles" create more value for the company.

It is our last chance as Calgarians to save this big and beautiful park in our city. Thinking about how important these large green spaces are to our quality of life in Calgary, it is hard to imagine our city councillors allowing this area to be turned into more condos/box malls/etc. They say they'll leave some space green but it is the severe slope that is unusable for building anyway. It also happens to be all but unusable for hiking or biking either.

Rented some fatbikes today. Rode nipika trails and around Radium and through the golf course. A nice nighttime finish to a solid fatbiking day.

I'm starting to get serious about a fatbike. I use a 29er single speed currently with spiked tires. It grips great on the sometimes glazed packed snow and ice but fails when the trails are choppy and rutted. The only thing I'm worried about with the day bike is these conditions. Icy seems like the Achilles heel of the fat bike but I have no direct experience. Anybody running spikes on their fat bike? Any problem with running a fat bike in all Calgary winter conditions?

My commute involves some unmaintained pathways as well as paved pathways. I'm also very keen on hitting some mountain bike trails in winter. Anybody have suggestions on the bike and the ties to best suit this desire?

Just found this group and wanted to post. This is from last spring. A shot from 2/3 the way up my switch back path commute. Slushy trails with an awesome view of downtown cowtown.
I'll post some more next week for fun.
