Hi. I'm Ken Zinser. I do projects, and this is my blog.


There is a relief in admitting that your ambition is no longer that useful.

—Rosie Spinks

I’ve wasted a lot of energy on personal ambition. But achievement never assuaged a feeling that my work isn’t necessary. The world may not need another thing, but it does need another person who derives value from elevating others. I’ve learned that I’d rather be forgotten by a thriving world I helped create than remembered by one drowning in its own self-absorbed dysfunction.

Starting small puts 100% of your energy on solving real problems for real people.

—Justin Jackson, Quit Trying to Attract a Crowd and Just Help People

Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time, and always start with the person nearest you.
