What I’m Doing Now…

This page is inspired by Derek Sivers' /now page movement.  It's where I post what I'm currently working on, learning, reading, yadda yadda yadda.
Tuesday, January 21, 2020

Now working on:

  • Working on some new business initiatives
  • Designing an e-commerce website
  • Updating the WellnessVR site to accommodate some exciting updates to our product.

Now learning/practicing:

  • This might be a little crazy, but I’m taking Wes Bos’s Beginner Javascript, AND Superhi’s Advanced CSS & Javascript & Javascript for Designers. A Javascript trifecta! I’m hoping that absorbing the information from three different sources at the same time will help cement the learning. My goal is not only to up my web dev game but also to up my After Effects expressions game.
  • Attempting to draw every day

Trouble Boys: The True Story of The Replacements by Bob Mehr

Building a Story Brand by Donald Miller

Been meaning to read this one for a while now, too, and was inspired to do so when a client mentioned it.

The Long Shining Waters by Danielle Sosin

My fiction book of the moment, LSW is “three stories whose characters are separated by centuries and circumstance, yet connected across time by a shared geography.”

Now watching:

Season Three of Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Now listening to:

Now pondering:

The stupidest possible creative act is still a creative act. On the spectrum of creative work, the difference between the mediocre and the good is vast. Mediocrity is, however, still on the spectrum; you can move from mediocre to good in increments. The real gap is between doing nothing and doing something.
