Nobody sends a CARE package like Dan Benjamin sends a CARE package.
I imagine you’ve always wondered what happens when I fake-type to Dan.

That Dan’s a sweet little fella.
And I love me a Baby Cable.
The first Back to Work Q&A call-in show records live today at Noon Eastern Time, and you should totally be there.
Hi. I’m 46 years old, and I’m sending angry texts about why someone didn’t send an encoded message to Iron Man.
As you do.
“Trying to talk somebody out of the stuff that they enjoy in life is like trying to talk them out of their faith or their sexuality. It’s a pointless exercise that can never be anything but acrimonious and will only highlight unnecessary amounts of difference about things that ultimately don’t really matter. Buy the steak you like, worship the god you love, neck with the people that you treasure and don’t worry about the numbers.”
Merlin Mann // Taken from Episode #91 of Back To Work (1:07:00-1:07:24)
I am consistently floored at Merlin’s ability to take some aspect of our collective existence that often completely escapes the majority of us and then turn it into something absolutely profound that all at once inspires me and nearly moves me to tears.
Thanks for the amazing compliment, PF. What a wonderful thing to say.
And, yes: I am totally quoting myself on my own site. Because I think the head-shaking thoughts contained in that paragraph maybe four times every day, and, frankly, I am very unlikely to ever put it any better than that.
A drawing in honor of my favorite podcast, Back to Work. I intended to submit this as an entry for their “BULK Bag” newsletter, but I just couldn’t keep it to the required dimensions.
Listen to an episode all the way to the end to get a feel for the show. It’s really good.
Nothing short of sublime. This is an extreme honor, Rob. Very nicely done!
