I know. Sounds strange. But really, it’s just artsy note-taking of good ideas found in a great piece of writing.
When I found The 99 Percent I think I actually gasped.
You mean there are other creatives like me who brainstorm like crazy and feel sorta smart for a moment and then can’t get a one thing done? Oh yes. Not only do they exist, it appears there are many of us. So many that this lovely old quote “Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration” can be turned into a fantastic website.
Their copy says, “At 99%, Behance‘s think tank, we focus on what happens after inspiration—researching the forces that truly push ideas forward. Our profiles of proven idea makers, action-oriented tips, best-practices sessions, and annual conference are all designed to help you transform ideas from vision to reality.”
99 Percent has a great cornerstone blog post “The 10 Laws of Productivity” that is gold.
Gold worth remembering. I remember what I write down.
And I wanted to see it again w/out just staring at a screen.
And I wanted to think through the ideas more thoughtfully than regular blog scanning.
So I art journaled a blog post. Sort of. The art consists of putting very concrete action steps into dreamy clouds. We must weigh the clouds down a bit to get them to Earth, no?
I plan to do a lot more of these in the future. How do you make sure you remember the really great stuff you read online?
