Resources to Be a Better Noticer

In last week’s Mash-Up, I shared Bill Keaggy’s excellent TED talkHow to Find Attention, Mindfulness, and Creativity in the Ordinary.  

Here’s a great post from Austin Kleon that breaks down the talk and cites other recourses to help you become a better noticer. 

Why do I keep sharing stuff about noticing? Great storytellers are great noticers. The more you notice, the easier it is to find great stories.

❤️ this article by my pal Adam Kreitman about a website redesign gone wrong. He and his partners turned their ugly old website into a spiffy new website. And the results were NOT pretty. 

A cautionary tale about websites and marketing assumptions. And (as is always the case with Adam’s posts or emails) an entertaining read!
