In an effort to help me keep up with everything I post each week, here is my latest “Sunday Summary” of my posts from the week.
Mon, October 30: Design is how it works
Great design is much more than how something looks; it’s more about how it actually works.
Tue, October 31: Nuance doesn’t lead to attention
People don’t respond to well-balanced, nuanced opinions. They respond to hard opinions on the edges, which is why most news personalities are becoming more far-leaning to one side or the other.
Wed, November 1: Knowledge can be power
The key here is “can be”. It’s easy to accrue knowledge for no purpose, but it’s the use of your knowledge that can lead to great things.
Thu, November 2: When creativity helps the most
There’s always a balance between “looking like you belong in your genre” versus “standing out”, and this post has a great example of that.
Fri, November 3: Balance doesn’t mean 50/50
It’s easy to think that “balance” in anything means it should be 50/50, but that’s not true. Balance is important, but it doesn’t need to be equal.
Sat, November 4: Warmth and Competence
To gain trust as a person or a company, you need to show both warmth and competence. Failing on either one will make it very hard for others to trust you.
I hope you found some value in this. If you ever have questions, ideas, or disagreements regarding anything I write, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
