  • Cleaned up my obsidian database a bit. Starting to turn into something.

  • Just sent a new edition of the learn create share newsletter out with a new creative challenge. Now time to record a sketchnote video!

  • What is an idea from a productivity book you’ve found helpful?

    I remember next actions being fantastic for helping teenage me break through procrastination. Tasks that seemed so massive could be broken into chunks and then I just had to do the next step.

  • I still want @gr36 to write a productivity blog/series of post and call it “Gregging Things Done”.*

    *Also applies to other Gregs. Feel free to steal.

  • 🔗 Kings of Leon Will Be the First Band to Release an Album as an NFT

    🔗 Kings of Leon Will Be the First Band to Release an Album as an NFT The band is actually dropping three types of tokens as part of a series called “NFT Yourself,” people involved in the project tells Rolling Stone.

  • Do I need to interrupt them?

    I communicate with my team through a combination of real-time messaging and email. Before I send a message, I try to ask myself “Do I need to interrupt them?”. I say try because sometimes I forget to reflect on this point (sometimes because I DO need to interrupt them). Most of the time, … read more

  • This may be the best image i’ve ever made for a blog post. also I hate drawing hands.

  • It’s amazing how no one objected to our messages about a social media initative for our internal company party, for Valentines day, for clean your desk day, for earth day (coming)…but when it comes to international women’s day, we didn’t follow the right procedure and that’s why people are upset…it’s almost like it’s the cause they object to…I’m sure they just “forgot” to complain about the other things. I mean…they’re not sexist, they have friends who are women.

  • If a consultant doesn’t use the word leverage at least once an email…are they really a consultant?

  • Currently catching up on CJ Chilvers site. Really like his new simple design and was surprised that it’s a squarespace site not Ghost. I wonder whether his issues with transferring posts to MB had to do with using Squarespace?

  • There is a Ben Gibbard’s signature guitar… I now have a new dream guitar (it’s not really my dream guitar, but I do want it.)

  • I would do a how it started how it’s going thing but I had to trade in my UK driving licence to get this one.

  • Oh boy! Mobile apps are coming to obsidian. I’d bet you’d have to use (and pay) obsidian sync but as long as the files are still plain text, this is an easy “shut up and take my subscription.”

  • I always intend to take a before and after haircut photo… today I actual took one!

  • After seven years of learning Polish, I still sometimes use the wrong gender adjective endings.
    My two-year-old daughter just corrected me.
    So how’s your Friday going.

  • I’m so done with Unsplash images.
    I really hate seeing the same images over and over again as well as these prestine pictures of minimalist desktops. I vow to only use photos I take for my blog from now on.

    Thank you for listening to my TED talk.

  • Yesterday’s walk with my daughter.

  • A return to time blocking

    Back when I was a teacher, I was a huge believer in time blocking: planning your day and marking certain hours for certain activities. It made total sense for me back then. I knew when I’d be in a class, I could estimate my travel times, and setting boundaries on lesson planning helped … read more

  • I recorded some test footage with my new light today. It is a massive improvement over my previous lighting. Just trying to work out some practical issues for my next sketchnote video.

  • The test run of SPS has been fantastic! Basecamp was the perfect choice, in fact, I couldn’t have picked a better platform and I didn’t! Time for the next step.

  • Billionaire most likely to own a volcano base…Jeff Besos or Elon Musk?

  • So tired from a day at work. Hope you are all doing well my micro friends.

  • Principles I say I live by: only as complicated as needed.
    Principles I actually live by: oh look at this new shiny! I will love it and use it for ever and it shall be mine. (A few weeks pass) urgh, new shiny isn’t shiny anymore and is so complicated…but new new shiny on the other hand…

  • Just found a second hand “duckie” lens (70-200mm. Perfect for pictures of the ducks) and it made me wonder. What are some other non-proper but very discriptive names for camera lenses? Other suggestion

    • street photography lens - 35mm
    • the Bruce Guilden lens - 28mm
    • the Bresson - 50mm
  • I bought a couple of years of web hosting which runs out in June… I have no idea what I’ll do when it runs out. I’m sure the prices have gone up so maybe I should migrate…maybe move away from WordPress…maybe let go of those sites (Hey, remember iPad Guild?)
