Time for a SETT update. Let's eat our dessert first and start with the big news-- my good friend and really sharp tech entrerpreneur, Daniel Odio, is officially the first person to switch to SETT. He's been incredibly supportive and helpful ever since we began working on SETT, so it made sense to have him be the first to use it.
Eventually we'll open SETT up and everyone will be able to use it, but I wanted to hand pick the first few bloggers to make sure that I had people whose blogs I'd be happy to promote. DanielOdio.com is one of those blogs.
Daniel is one of really very few people I'd call a champion. I have no exact definition for the word, but it's basically a cross between being a total hustler who's always getting stuff done, and being an awesome person. Daniel is one of the most resourceful and industrious people I've met, as well as being one of the kindest and most proactively friends people I've known.
I used to dislike to work. I saw how most people lived their lives, slogging through work that they hated, and I was determined not to fall into that trap. I made the mistake of generalizing, lumping all work together in the same bucket.
Since then, things have changed. In terms of monumental personal life changes, becoming a hard worker is the most recent one I've undergone. About a year ago, for reasons I touched on in this post, I decided that it was imperative for me to become a hard worker. I didn't do it because I had suddenly fallen in love with work, but rather because I had began to feel as though I was behind. And believe me, it wasn't love at first sight.
