What can be done to reduce the appearance of scuffs on natural leather?

February 04, 2019

Natural leather is beautiful, with qualities that only get better with age. That said, just like the best of us, sometimes it gets rubbed the wrong way. When that happens to people, we may get surly for a little while. When it happens to leather, it may get scuffed instead.

So what can be done?

If it's just a surface scuff, there are a couple of things you can do:

  1. If you have a hair dryer, set it to "warm" and heat up the scuffed surface, and then use your fingers/thumb to massage the leather, which should reduce the appearance of the scuff;
  2. You can also (or as well), apply a bit of unscented petroleum jelly to the scuffed area, rubbing it in with circular motions with your fingers. Let it sit for about 10 mins, then wipe off any excess with a clean cloth.

Hopefully that will tone the scuff down to the point where it blends into the irregularities of the natural leather.

With use, the leather should form a nice patina and minor scuffs will add a bit of character.

Your Paper To Do List Is Constraining You
Your Paper To Do List Is Constraining You

January 07, 2019

Paper lists aren't sexy, but they're a simple, highly effective way to maintain focus in a world of unending demands. Using a paper list recognizes that our we can never complete every item on our Master To-Do List, and that if we did, it's likely a sign that we've either set the bar too low, or we don't really have a full grasp of the "open loops" in our life. It equates productivity not with volume of boxes checked, but rather with the impact of the few boxes we do check, liberating us to enjoy the fruits of our efforts, and leaving us with the time and energy to both guiltlessly enjoy life, and ensure we have sustainable energy tomorrow to do it all over again.
