Who are we writing for?

who are we writing for, is it an audience or a machine?

We seem to have lost the art of writing, certainly the art of writing for humans to read.  As Seth Godin writes today on his blog post ‘More and more, we create our work to be read by a machine’ and he’s right, we have lost that power to inform in a language that we can understand. We either write for 140 characters, 550 characters or something that can be read by a spider.

Make a list

a great day to get that notebook out and make a list of all the things you want to achieve this week, which are the most important and which require more thinking space than others....  List them in order and then critically DO THEM!!!!!   A Little Bit... A little bit...

You cannot do anything unless you have a customer

You cannot do anything unless you have a customer

Remember
You cannot do anything unless you have a ‘CUSTOMER’
Start by recognising that your true job is to create a customer (not your solution).
Now a customer is someone / somebody / something that gives you an exchange for the item you have produced so not just money but could be funding / barter – as long as it has a value that YOU consider the item is worth…. but unless someone else other than you think’s that what you do is important then you don’t have a viable product…

Derail yourself!

Derail yourself!
Tracks are useful to follow when you don’t have the flow….. loose the tracks, break-free… DERAIL yourself!!!! 

The Journey is not the solution

The Journey is not the solution

I know we seem to be putting out a number of ideas and thoughts over the last week or so but what we are trying to do is to get you into a new way of thinking about your creative output. We are not trying to change the output but to make you aware that you need to think about why you are doing something what you are doing in each case, how that fits in with your why and how you (the action plan) are you going to get to the end of that project – to the what) Because we have seen far too many times people (as people have ideas not organisations) have a great idea or start on a great project but completely forget about the solution (the why and the what), they get so me consumed by the process, the journey that they never make it to the end of the project, therefore they never satisfy their what or their why and by default they don’t satisfy themselves or the people they are doing it for… . why do something if it doesn’t have an impact?

Multitasking

Multitasking Multitasking doesn't work!!!!! Honest.... it doesn't...and to prove it... 🙂 Contrary to what some people believe, multi-tasking is rarely an effective way to be productive, especially not when it comes to mentally taxing work. Not only that, but it's...
