I made a tag for this ongoing goal: 64 posts in 64 days.
Alright so in my last post, this is what I said my next post would be:
My next post: A bunch of notecard drawings and the ideas for the posts.
I’m going to set an interval timer: 5 x 2 minutes
The goal: 5 topics to write about over the next 5 days.
And here… we… go:
Okay so I ended up writing 10 topics to try to narrow things down from. I’ll just re-write the text for easier reading.
- Ray Croc – The Founder
- D. Perell x Seth Godin – Typepad to WordPress
- Lessons from 100 in 100
- Why I use WordPress
- 3 easy meal prep
- Getting slightly back into cooking
- Swings, get-ups
- My podcast habit change
- The Big Picture
- NBA x Hollywood
Then the idea was that I’d actually stick to the intervals and sketch a concept from five of the topics.
Instead I just drew 2. One with a rough animation idea and then spending most time on the second animation idea. (I wasn’t planning to do any of the animation at all initially.)
Definitely failed the batch goal but am happy with one of the animations, so overall it’s a fine outcome.
This is the notecard for “Ray Croc – The Founder”
his blogThis post would be about how I watched “The Founder” last night and how the big reframe became looking at McDonald’s as being in the restaurant business to really being in the real estate business. Lesson: Know what business you’re (really) in.
This is the notecard for “D. Perell x Seth Godin – Typepad to WordPress”
This post would be about Seth Godin’s appearance on David Perell’s podcast (“Seth Godin: Writing every day”). This is the animation I was happy about. I’m trying to convey Seth Godin talking about the importance of location. When he’s got his blog editor UI open, he knows exactly what he’s there for: to write that day’s post. He also mentioned he switched from TypePad to WordPress. I’ll write about how I always return to that idea of writing in the editor.
