Daily Overview

When I think of a daily overview, I expect some kind of productivity system where you overview your entire life every day in two easy steps (that secretly break down to twenty steps each and will take up half your day, but only if you're doing it wrong). Turns out it's actually an art project by Benjamin Grant, taking satellite images of the world, documenting what humans have done to change the planet.

Bottoms Up

"It's not the bottom, it's the foundation."

Learn Your Type

I love personality tests! Obviously, they never explain everything about you, but I find it so useful and interesting to learn something new about my tendencies or how my brain works. Here's a new one called 16 Personalities that seems to be a variation on the Myers-Briggs. I rated as a Campaigner (ENFP-T), whereas on the Myers-Briggs I am an ENFJ. You can take the quiz in 12 minutes and then it will email you detailed results. Then let the self-reflection begin!

Easier Said than Done

It's easy to work when you're in the groove and you just have to follow your inspiration. It's hard to work when you don't feel like it. Guess what we have to do more often?

"Inspiration is for amateurs. The rest of us just show up and get work done." - Chuck Close quote
