Setting the Stage
0:35 – 5:28
How I’ve been infusing some roughness into a fairly polished product.
- The latest resource I’ve been working on at Verbal To Visual: Build an Online Course with Sketchnotes – I’ve been enjoying maintaining a conversational tone within the lessons I’m creating.
- Where does the work that you currently do fit along the rough-to-polished spectrum?
The Variables at Play
5:28 – 10:32
The things that contribute to (and result from) where your work lives on the rough-to-polished spectrum: time, energy, quality, and impact.
10:32 – 16:45
The way in which I try to have a balanced approach by taking on some projects that live on the rough side, and others that live on the polished side of this spectrum.
- On the rough side: this weekly podcast and the regular videos and sketchnotes I share at Verbal To Visual .
- On the polished side: the courses I make, and future essays (and maybe even a book or two!) that I plan to write.
- Relevant post: The Best Way to Learn Something? Make a Lot of Pots.
