CLIFTON STRENGTHS:

INPUT #4 – I am scanning and noticing information in my environment.
This is how information enters my intellectual system. The door.
Problem: I am flooded/overwhelmed with unprocessed information.

LEARNER #1 – I process this information as a Learner – this is Process #1.
Word of Knowledge.
Output: A quote + what I learned – both in the form of ideas. Truth, “what to know”
Problem: What am I learning? (Not much … I think it’s come to a halt, or a trickle.)

STRATEGIC #2 – I apply this information to my life and the life of others. This is Process #2.
Word of Wisdom: application to life … “what to do”
Output: What can be done?

The lesson is improved.
INDIVIDUALIZATION #3 (customized for me first)
CONNECTEDNESS #5 – connect with others, drawing into community.

Tools

QNQS Format + a bottom block for metainformation
Project templates developed
One point made per post.
Reported in the post title, number in order, and dated.

Tasks

  1. Organize posts into projects (in a page), and chapters into categories.
  2. Create a misc remainder project bin for all other posts. Usually in draft form.

Blogging 301: 2022 Plans

The issue in reality is drawing a tribe of readers … an audience. Consequently, my issue on whether to retire or not, how to pull the life support plug or not, is one of marketing and potential.

Identify projects as separate categories + one bin of unsorted posts

Group posts into these projects
Projects are either topical bins … idea buffet … or potential Kindle books.
