Thank you for reading. I need a break.

I started this daily list of ideas in December, 2007. And it was fun for a while. But recently it has been more of a burden.

Thank you, Andy Pearson and Kasia Haupt, for the inspiration to do this. I have learned a lot about the creative process and about myself over the past 432 posts. Thank you, Rusty, Patrick, Alex, Ashley, Elizabeth, Erin, Jackie from New Zealand and everyone else I haven’t named, for reading, caring and following this blog.

Now go create something great for yourself. Make us all proud.

I will still post to this page, just not daily. So don't delete the RSS feed if you subscribe, and come back every couple of weeks.

Later,
Dan

Oh, and here is browser use for this blog, as of today:

Don’t make a decision until you absolutely must.

I forget where I heard this. It’s not 100% original.

Approach everyone with lovingkindness, because everyone is carrying some pain.

I can’t claim this as original, only as relevant. I believe it’s a paraphrased Chinese proverb.

“The core skill of innovation is error recovery, not failure avoidance.”

This is a quote from Randy Nelson, Dean of Pixar University.

Be the change you want to see in the world.

Not my line and Not Barack Obama’s. It’s Mahatma Gandhi’s.
