I was excited for this session, mainly because doing stuff and being happy are two major challenges! Roy Christopher gave a laid back presentation that basically went through some ideas on how to keep your focus and try and stay happy while actually getting things done.
Roy covers a lot of the information that was in his presentation on his own blog right here so we won’t go over all of that however some of the things we really took away from the session:
- Roy was a competitive Rubik’s Cube Player (established geek cred for sure!)
- Find people who have done what you want to do and emulate them
- Feed and water your mentors- let people know you respect them and why
- Save your own story
- Keep a journal
- Keep a promise file
- Get organized
- Trust your curiosity
Many thanks to the folks at Raise and Geekend 2010.
