Communication

Speaking is easy. Communicating is exhausting. Forming the right words in the right sequence to convey a sound message; all so people can immediately forget . Only communicate what is worth repeating.

Where do entrepreneurs come from

Do entrepreneurs see opportunity or do they find a passion in life, developing a skill naturally through interest? Those in fields the economy values become entrepreneurs, those in fields that are not valued become hobbyists. Either results in happiness.

Technology Adoption

Technology is readily adopted by employees if one of the following is true:

  • The task at hand must be accomplished, and the new technology is the only means to accomplish the task–i.e. cannot be circumvented
  • The technology is intuitive and saves people time
  • The technology makes something that people want possible, or is intuitive and quickly creates a want– i.e. if Henry Ford asked people what they wanted, they would have said a faster horse

Less likely reasons for adoption include:

  • The technology decreases error

Setup Python2.7 with VirtualEnv and Powershell on Windows 10

Follow these steps:

1) Download Python2.7 and install for your windows user
2) Download PIP, open command line, change directory(cd) to download directory, execute $>python pip-setup.py
3) Execute $>pip install virtualenv
4) Execute $>pip install virtualenvwrapper-powershell
5) Determine where Powershell saves modules for your user, execute $>Get-ChildItem Env:PSModulePath
6) Open a windows file search and find Virtual module for powershell installed by python “VirtualEnvWrapper.psm1”
7) Create a folder “VirtualEnvWrapper” and save “VirtualEnvWrapper.psm1” in the directory identified in step 5,
filepath example: ..\[directory from step 5]\VirtualEnvWrapper\VirtualEnvWrapper.psm1
8) Set environment path by executing $> [Environment]::SetEnvironmentVariable(“Path”, “$env:Path;C:\Python27″,”User”)
9) Import the module by executing $> Import-Module virtualenvwrapper

Python 2.7 should now be installed, command prompts should now be recognized in Windows Powershell. I created a ctl+alt+T shortcut key to open a Powershell terminal to further mirror Linux.
