"Take a simple idea and take it seriously."
I'm Jason Griffing. I created Pillars of Impact to capture, develop, and share ideas that I find interesting. Topics I'm currently exploring include productivity, mindfulness, personal knowledge management, tools for thought, meta-cognition, leadership, and habit creation.
I'm a lifelong learner and believe that curiosity is a superpower. I believe that meaningful growth and personal development only come through hard work and relentless self-examination. I don't believe in shortcuts. But I do believe that with the right ideas and a commitment to getting a little better every day, we can all live more impactful lives. This site is about exploring those ideas.
On a personal note. I am currently employed as the Director of Product at an awesome company called OneVision. We operate in the connected home space, an industry I've called home for close to 15 years. I co-created and co-host a weekly home technology podcast at HomeTech.fm. Our show has been downloaded over half a million times and regularly features some of the biggest names in the business.
I am a devoted husband; I've been with my wife for ten years, married for seven. We have two amazing children who push me to be a better person in ways I never imagined possible. When I'm not working or hanging out with my kids, I enjoy reading, writing, and fly fishing.
