How do I: Check wifi

We all use wifi. Some countries believe access to it is actually a civil right.

Ever wonder how to find a wifi hotspot in any area?

Try http://google.com/maps and search for “free wifi near me”

How do you check the strength of the wifi signal?

You can run a free test to measure the strength of any internet connection including wifi by visiting http://speedtest.net

Speedtest  has an app too.

How do I: find out a personality profile

 

cranium-2028555_1280

 

Ever wonder if there is a way to classify different personalities?

There are few tests for this. According to the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), there are 16 personality profiles.

Over 10 years ago, I took this insightful personality testing along with all of my fellow co-workers at the time.

This month, I took this personality testing again, and my profile has not changed to this day.

What is your personality profile?

Find out for free at https://www.16personalities.com/

You will be surprised by the concrete, accurate description of who you are and why you do things the way you do. You can ask others to find out their profile for free as well.

Best books consumed in the past few years

Writers get better by writing more and reading more. Some writers will purposely read outside from their genre to learn something else.

Here are a few of the best books I have read in the past three years:
Principles: Life and Work by Ray Dalio

Radical Candor: Be a Kick-Ass Boss Without Losing Your Humanity
by Kim Scott

 

by Adam Morgan, Mark Barden

Before taking the altMBA, this was one of the books we were mailed and asked to read prior to the month-long course. Found the reframing of constraints from limitations to advantages very helpful with their models and real-world examples.

Sprint: How to Solve Big Problems and Test New Ideas in Just Five Days 
by Jake Knapp

Went to the book launch for this book, read this book, suggested a number of startups use this model to help them, led a 5-day workshop to use this Sprint process and it was very fruitful use of our time to resolve big challenges for those startups.
