I run a software business, I help my wife raise three children, and I like to think. I especially like to think in metaphors—to learn in one area and then apply that knowledge in another area that seems completely unlrelated. Raising children and running a business put everything in my mind to use; in fact, the jobs push me beyond my own capacity sometimes. In this talk, I’ll share some of the ideas that I’ve learned about raising a family from running my business, and vice versa. I’ll talk about why thinking clearly is more important than the right answer, how testing in schools should be more like good software testing, and what I’ve learned about the pursuit of happiness.
