Commonplace Guides

Feature image for Commonplace Guides

Commonplace Guides are in-depth, actionable handbooks on topics that I normally cover on this site.

While Commonplace typically explores many of these ideas, they tend to be spread out over the publication history of the blog. These guides will present a unified, up-to-date synthesis of all of my thinking and experimentation over time.

I intend for the guides to be updated continually, as new research is uncovered, or when I verify certain ideas through practice.

Most chapters of most guides will be exclusive to members. Sign up for a membership to gain access today.
