Several years ago, a fascinating, and perhaps compelling, post appeared on San Francisco’s Craigslist titled, “Advice to Young Men from an Old Man.” Michael from A Continuous Lean saved the text, and recently published it on his site.
I, too, offer it without comment, except to say – I don’t agree with everything here, but it does make me think. A lot. It makes me think about the content, but also about the guy who sat down to write this. About how he thought Craigslist was the right place to publish it (if that was indeed its original appearance). About the nature of advice, about email forward-style philosophy, and about publishing anonymously.
Check it out. I’d be curious to know how you react.
