May 16

JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "9-5er's Anthem" by Aesop Rock and either "Worker's Song" by The Dropkick Murphys, "Working Class Hero" by John Lennon or "Working Man" by Rush.]

"But why, if you are so clever, do you lie here like a sack and have nothing to show for it?"
-Fyodor Dostoevsky, Crime & Punishment

Most great ideas stay on the couch because, however brilliant they (or their creators) may be, every great idea requires planning and execution if it is to live anywhere in the world outside the mind. Consider Benjamin Franklin, who favored the proverb, "Failing to plan is planning to fail"-- we never would have heard of the guy if he settled for having great ideas instead of actually doing something about them.

With these thoughts in mind, use today's journal entry to describe the steps you're taking to learn/create/build/write the idea(s) you presented on Monday.

1. Journal
2. How to plan
3. Work

1. Post your plan to your blog. Your plan includes:
  • Your goal(s);
  • Any materials/resources/information you require;
  • Your timeline/production schedule, including work you've done so far; and
  • How you will present your finished product to your colleagues.
