Second instincts - a great short slide show from @tamadearshar.es/XAEaV worthy of entry in #the5 todayTamsen McMahon has this great short slide show on the second instinct, that voice inside your head that questions you every once in a while (or more frequently depending upon what you're doing and how close you listen). A great reminder to think before acting while on the job hunt.
That Sense of Overnight Success http://bit.ly/hHE82e me: what creates this doesn't really happen overnight @chrisbrogan shares #the5The work required takes time, lots of time. Mastery takes 10,000 hours. How many hours have you put in for what you want to do? Be realistic, don't be depressed. Focus, execute. Move forward. Patience and persistence count.
Why you need a personal newsletter http://bit.ly/gezFwH me: do you have one? Should I have one? good questions! #the5@cspenn, my other "Chris" buddy, lays out his reasons for a personal newsletter. I keep saying someday, but then that day I guess should be sooner than later!
Introducing the Autism Connects design challenge http://bit.ly/fEbGbG "help autistic people overcome communication challenges" #the5John Elder Robison (@johnrobison) is one I was fortunate to meet at PodCampWesternMA and a few other times since. Spreading the word to help the challenge is a good thing to do. Follow the link, read his essay. Consider taking up the challenge.
Like SoDoKu for Twitter http://bit.ly/hkpqVG me: the framework looks good, I need to try it, will you? let me know, please #the5Last but not least for today, this grid or framework from @ericjnorman looks really good. I'll need to sit with it and try it to know for sure. If you do try, please let me know how it works for you.
With that one to wrap #the5 today, how can we summarize what we found? Is there something in common? Let's go with framework. Tamsen started us with the simply worded slide show, Chris Brogan talked about the work behind overnight success, Christopher Penn laid out the reasons for a personal newsletter, John Robison announces a challenge and Eric provides the actual framework.
What have you learned that you can share today?
