HIERARCHY – There is a plan.
HIPPO = Hierarchy, Input, Parse, Process, Output.
INPUT: SPRIG sources
Scanning (Barbara Sher)
Ideas from Facebook
Clipped into Evernote Inbox aka “Millpond/Reservoir” aka GTD Writing Inbox
PARSE: Tag & Bag = *A.PACT. (Outline with prompts)
Examine notes in the Inbox one at a time.
What is this? (GTD)
Is this an Anchor that I can build a post around?
MBA Test = Solution? Problem? Reputable? Interesting? God?
SPRIG: Provides solution? Intense, widespread problem?
Reputable – respectable? Market Interesting? God related?
No – Then “catch and release” – throw it back into the pond.
(On Jan 1 all library items are moved to an Evernote local notebook on the primary machine; no longer synced)
Yes – then Parse with A.PACT tags.
A. Add Anchor Tag.
P Project (Blog=WIP_Evernote notebook)
A Author/source – optional.
(a. for book authors,
? for common web sources – Inc, Forbes, etc.)
C Category Destination (blog category)
T Topic tags (t., h. prefix) – Optional
Bag: Move to Anchor_ Notebook in blog Work In Progress Stack WIP
PROCESS – Write Basic Draft = NIFTY
Rule: Edit in Evernote, Mirror Copy to Blog
Note has quote, initial thoughts: QNQS
Insert project template.
Fill in blanks.
Tune up – polish and troubleshoot.
Yes: Ready to Publish by copying to blog?
OUTPUT – Four Streams of Output =
Four Blogs, starting local (across the street) and moving outward: CRAWL
Church: Kinmundy.Wordpress.com = a more effective specific local church.
RealityDisciplines.com = more effective individuals, starting with me.
AmbidextrousChurch.com = more effective churches.
WesleyUpdated.com = connect Wesley original sources with modern insights.
Lamentations – divorce, abuse, addictions, mental illness …
For future consideration, too personal and difficult to consider now.
Each blog has projects which correspond to categories and subcategories on the blog.
RAD CYCLE: This rewriting & revision loop fulfills the MBA purpose:
“to add value to information from a variety of sources (input -> process),
to provide innovative spoken and written solutions (product/output)
for intense and widespread human problems (market)
in harmony with God’s will (evaluative process)
and validated/vindicated in the marketplace.” (fruit and fruitful harvest).
Posts “evolve” until they are mature and considered complete.
