It’s easy to say “I’m going to do this”, but putting ideas together and onto paper is another story. Do you know that frustration?
I’ve been umming and aahing for a few
days weeks now as to how I’m going to get the ball rolling.
Probably trying to coin words like STEMer to be like corporate book authors wasn’t a good move. Keep it simple, silly!
I’ll have a second go at this anyway. Maybe an action plan* will suffice for now. So this is what I think I should do next on this site:
Make a menu listing the core areas – Home link, the 3 areas affecting nerd success at work, work design lab, ContactDONE Populate internal structure of 3 areas with topics even if they are blank pages e.g. Non-violent communication under INFLUENCE OTHERsToo hard to process – need to rework this Populate blank pages with fundamental questions of analysis like “What is x” “Pros vs Cons” “How does it apply at work” “Case studies”This will work once I know what I’m doing. So paste into new list Review substantial (500? 1000? 2500?) words everyday to start building notes on various sectionsOnly possible if I have 100% clarity, which I don’t right now Power through research and add notes within the relevant sections rather than notecard system (as cool as it is, I’d find it hard) – digital can get messy and hard to track through
Update 2nd December – I’ve figured out where I’m getting unstuck. The why of this content is still weak. I think it’s best to focus on “easier” concepts like “Productive Thinking” then move onto tougher topics
* I suppose there’s also the planner’s curse – plan, but fail to do. Let’s hope not.
