Because I want to write. I love to write. And I’ve been told too many times that if I want to write, then I should write
Who are you? My name is Daniel Rieger. I’m a husband and a knowledge worker. I’m happy to share more about myself with you if you contact me directly. You can read about my career and education on LinkedIn. So far, I’ve successfully resisted Facebook and Twitter. Daniel, why are you writing this blog? Because I want to write. I love to write. And I’ve been told too many times that if I want to write, then I should write. Daniel, what are you going to write about? Just about everything. I’ll focus on practical ideas related to work in the modern world. Sometimes my discussion will include personal life. Daniel, why would you write about professional life and personal life? Well, I don’t think you can separate them. I love analysis, but I’m a big believer in a holistic approach to just about everything. In general, I think analysis should serve comprehension of the whole – for the purpose at hand. So although I plan on exploring practical ideas that center around work in the modern world, I can’t in good conscience dissociate a conversation about work from a conversation about who and what we are – unique and valuable human beings. If my writing on this blog is strictly applicable to work, then I suspect they lack integrity, and I encourage you to approach them with skepticism. Obviously, the context of personal life is different than the context of professional life. So we behave differently at home and at work. However, I believe that principles that are meaningful and good can be thoughtfully and effectively applied at home and at work. Daniel, what should I expect from your writing? You should expect opinions, considerations, research, analysis, observations, and recommendations. My writing should display integrity and practical value. If you think I’ve written something lacking integrity or value, I hope you to say so. Daniel, what aren’t you going to discuss? I don’t plan on discussing family trips, birthdays, and events – though I’m sure they will occasionally sneak into my discussion if they’re relevant. This isn’t a personal blog.
