Best Practices for Business Cards in the Digital Age
Just had the idea that it would be cool to have a double sided business card. Both sides have the same info, but one is cluttered, no whitespace, single font without bolding or other distinguishing features, essentially increasing cognitive load. It's an example of horrible copy writing. The other side is neat, clean, attractive. And says "There, that's better, isn't it?" or "Shouldn't your company message be as clear as possible?"

How To Stay Motivated in the Trenches | YoungEntrepreneur.com
I believe before these 4 steps, you need to bring a keen outsider into your business and "show them around"... then let the outsider make observations, ideas and comments about your company. That will be enough to get the engine started on your motivation. Have everyone in your company keep notes about everything that got them excited, the ideas they got and things they felt good about.

THEN and only then can you start on the steps listed on this page.

Showcase Of Beautiful Black And White Websites
computech-project = Might be awesome to make the website completely black and white, the theme being "no frills, just great service" or something like that -- also, when we do use color (to attract attention to a particular product or something) it will really, really stand out. Might have to rethink (or tweak) this idea in light of the fact that we plan to use video / pictures on the site.

3JOJo.jpg (JPEG Image, 1370x679 pixels) - Bruce Lee Quote
"Bruce, I can't go five. I'm a helluva lot older than you are and I can't do five."
He said, "When we get to three, we'll shift gears and it's only two more and you'll do it."
"Ok, hell, I'll go for it."

We go into the fourth mile and I'm okay for three or four minutes and then I really begin to give out. I'm tired, my heart's pounding, I cant' go any so I say to him "Bruce if I run any more" - and we're still running "if I run any m liable to have a heart attack and die."
"Then die" It made me so mad that I went the full five miles.

Afterward I said, "Why did you say that?"

He said "because you might as well be dead. Seriously, if you always put limits on what you can do, physical or anything else, it'll spread over into the rest of your life. It'll spread into your work, into your morality, into your entire being. There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. If it kills you, it kills you. A man must constantly exceed his level."

Doctor Learns A Lesson In Care From 6-Year-Old : NPR
"He had a little wristband that had his name, and it said 'no address,' " Greer remembers. "I knew that this man had, at the very least, parents — maybe siblings, a spouse. And we went out to try and find his family.

"And what I saw was a little window into this world of poverty that existed in my backyard, that I didn't even know was there. And then we went out under the bridges, started seeing patients on Tuesday nights."

"When you first came home to tell me about the homeless," Janus said, "I was shocked. Because we live in a suburb, and unless you came downtown, you didn't see it. It wasn't a reality."
