The results are coming in already. People are participating in the What I Learned in 2006 Group Writing Project. I want to make sure I highlight every post properly, so here’s an early batch of contributors:
- David Maister tells us he needs to stop changing his mind. David’s right on the money. It’s easy to get distracted and unfocused with too many ideas and things going on at once. Being able to filter ideas, stay focused, and “freeze the design” are essential to success.
- Sarah K. opens up about her experience giving birth to a baby girl. Her daughter was born on December 25, 2005 (happy birthday!) and Sarah’s had a year chock full of powerful, emotional experiences.
- Andrew Garrett gives us the rundown of what he learned in 2006. From the positive to the negative, Andrew covers the gamut of experiences, many of which I know others have dealt with. Business relationships, personal relationships, internal discovery…
- Karen Wallace takes the list approach as well, running through 30 things she learned in 2006 What a list! She does an awesome job at getting to the heart of this project – her list is overflowing with personal insight, passion and inspiration.
- Heidi Miller has a list of 10 things she’s learned this year. She’s got a great list. For entrepreneurs/business folk there are some gems in there that you can instantly learn from (and Heidi’s done all the hard work for you!) Check out #3, #6 and #10.
This is the first set of posts for the group writing project. More are on the way!
You can participate too! Write a post about what you learned in 2006. Link back here. I’ll donate $5 to charity and you could win great prizes.
