Today’s product-of-the-day was an accident. I was thinking originally that I would make a sticker with the explore – learn – build – share mantra on it, which got me thinking about how such stickers might be used. I joked to my friend Ben that maybe I should make a Shepard Fairy-style T-shirt with my [...]
I got pricing information for a first round of notebook prototypes from Papergraphics, my trusty local full-service printing company; they print and bind the various pre-printed planners on Amazon (here’s the European link).

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING SUBJECT MATTER INVOKES MY NEED TO SPELL-OUT THE WORD BS. IT IS A PROBABLY A MEDICAL CONDITION. Today’s product-of-the-day is a refresh of a 2006 form I made, the sales version of the Concrete Goals Tracker (CGT). This embodies the sales process as I’ve come to understand it, based on observation and [...]
