A few months back I was attending a meeting where our company’s VP of HR was addressing us on staying focused. He talked about or strategic focus and how all our department projects roll up into the overall strategy. Same corporate speak I’ve head before, but this time he introduced a phrase; “Be here now.”
He went on to explain that it means to focus ‘here’ and ‘now’ and not to worry about what failures or mistakes we made rather learn from them, and not to worry about deadlines and outcomes rather plan for them.
I just returned from the eLearning Guild’s Annual Gathering and as with every conference I have a full head of info to decipher and a renewed sense of energy…or should I say a ‘focus.’
I was pleasantly rewarded with many great comments from my presentation at AG09 and am humbled at the overall interest. With that, I’m working on an outline to write up more tutorials and articles on visual design and graphic communication. This is my “Be Here Now.”
Here’s a birds-eye view of an outline of upcoming posts: (in no particular order)
1. Reverse Engineer Written Language back into Graphic Language
2. Elements of an Image
3. An Object is First a Shape
4. Effective use of silhouettes in eLearning
5. Building a Reusable Image Library
6. Image types: Difference between .jpg, .gif, .png
That’s a good start, eh?
