From Round to Square (and back)

For The Emperor's Teacher, scroll down (↓) to "Topics." It's the management book that will rock the world (and break the vase, as you will see). Click or paste the following link for a recent profile of the project:

A new post appears every day at 12:05* (CDT). There's more, though. Take a look at the right-hand side of the page for over four years of material (2,000 posts and growing) from Seinfeld and country music to every single day of the Chinese lunar calendar...translated. Look here ↓ and explore a little. It will take you all the way down the page...from round to square (and back again).
*Occasionally I will leave a long post up for thirty-six hours, and post a shorter entry at noon the next day.

[a] The sign says it all...RL
So every day during my daily workout, I have to take a brief "quiz," a little "test." It adds up to twenty-percent of the grade, though, and that is hardly insignificant for a middle-aged rider. Every day, after ninety minutes of cycling, I face the tiny monster, and then power (this is how I like to imagine it) up its steep back. The day (or two) before a rest day, I sometimes have to weave a bit where the "back" arches a little even beyond twenty.

This is not hors catégorie by a longshot, but it is definitely my little daily quiz. 

Twenty percent.

I sure wish it looked like the photo every day... Seems like five-, six-, percent from here...
