TOPIC: Choosing Your Forks.
This week, Dan and Merlin talk about some of the deeper and more slippery issues behind changes in our career and life.
In particular, how do we go from a vague tickle to that feeling of full-blown intolerability that can end up driving a change? Are we looking backward at what we should be doing as we slavishly catalog our many petty aggrievements? Or, do we take two giant steps back and apply a cooler eye to what we really want to do next?
Even before we find our forks in the road, how can we know a big decision might or should be coming our way? And, how do we stay current on that never-ending need to accept and plan for the changes we never could have anticipated?
It's tough at 23, it's super-hard at 30, and, brother, is it ever murder at 50.
Sure, it's a little fruity, but, yeah: you need to write the story you really want to live. Rather than just cobbling together a flattering post-mortem on how you magically ended up where you are.
Hosted by Merlin Mann & Dan Benjamin.

The more we deconstruct and take apart iTunes, the more we come to respect how it cannot exist independent of the system it's a part of. Its scope and scale and its history and future all indicate that there is more to it than just a store and that it might be a platform in its own right. We get into some more details about all these details and talk about where it came from and where we think it will end up.
Hosted by Horace Dediu & Moisés Chiullan.
