If reading were an Olympic sport I’d get the gold. Here are some of my favorite blog reads from the last few weeks. Good reads from around the web to help you build your business.
Designer Cameron Moll shares how he starts creative projects (print, web, video, promo campaigns).
- “Short answer: It varies. Pretty widely.”
Read now if: thinking that there’s a “right” way to start creative projects is keeping you from moving forward. (pssst: there’s no right way to get started!).
An oldie, but goodie from programmer Derek Sivers.
“Dream the big dream of everything your site/service/company might be some day, and write it all down.
But then think of the bare minimum that would make you happy, and people would find useful.”
Read now if: you are getting ready to start a big project (app development, website, course/membership site) and need to figure out exactly what the project looks like and what kind of technical or other support you need.
Artist Mars Dorian breaks down his system for consistently improving his craft.
- “If you listen to interviews with engineers and other technical minded people, you hear the same stories. Back in the day, they’d take apart their grandma’s radio just to see how it work. They’d dismantle a computer to see what each piece of hardware did. Learning by dissecting.”
Read now if: you are committed to being the best at your craft, whether it’s coaching, consulting, or art.
