Back to Work #228: Tibet's Next Top Buddha

July 7, 2015 at 2:15PM • 1 hour 18 minutes

TOPIC: What kind of "perfect" can you tolerate?

This week, Dan and Merlin have a big week. A huge week.

Opening with a thank you to generous listeners, the boys then proceed to tackle some FU on the complicated world of H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III (he is recognized!).

Next up is some preliminary discussion on Pando's recent hit piece on Tony Hsieh, his weird edict for Holacracy at Zappos, and his strange and checkered history with theoretically transforming downtown Las Vegas.

Moving forward, "Merlin's Concern" about his bizarre lightning cable problem is addressed and assigned to further research by the Fun Bunch.

Finally, the meat of the episode is served in an extended meditation on whether and when "perfect is the enemy of good"—and how that concept maybe relates to aspects of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy.

Hosted by Merlin Mann & Dan Benjamin.

July 7, 2015 at 2:00PM • 1 hour 32 minutes

This week, we talk about change and some of the things that means for photographers in a market that never seems to stop. How do you view your own work and are there ways that viewing it differently could lead in new or exciting directions? Also, an interesting discussion around the NY Times article we teased last week with Cindy Sherman and Laurie Simmons. Larry Sultan is our Photographer of the Week.

Hosted by Bill Wadman & Jeffery Saddoris.
