Take It Tuesday: Business Tips from a Flake
It's time to admit it, folks.
I'm not as productive as I'd like to be.
I sometimes spend hours on the computer and get nothing done (can you say Facebook and Twitter?)
I have great ideas, in fact, I'm a brainstorming machine.
Successful implementation of those ideas is spotty.
It's time to admit it.
I'm a flake.
It's time to re-evaluate (how cliche since it towards the end of the year, but however cliche, it's true.)
So if you are a fellow flake, take heart! There's help at hand! Check out the Complete Flake's Guide to Getting Things Done by Sonia Simone.
After I read Sonia's blog post, I knew I needed to have a compost pile.....
...No, not THAT compost pile!
I mean a place to put all of my good ideas and try to keep it neat somehow. I've got sketchbooks for my design ideas but I needed a place to put the advice and good ideas I got from the web.
Remembering vaguely that one of my friends showed me a notebook program, I googled and found Notebook by Circus Ponies. You can download a 30 day trial for free.
So far, so good. Notebook is where I put the notes for this blog post.
Now, come a little closer to the computer screen...you can whisper....are you a flake too?
