I wasn’t feeding myself. (It’s a metaphor!)

Yesterday I realized I’ve been working so hard and so long on proximity thinking, and lately working on the related Shared Situation Guide and Shared Situations website, that I haven’t been feeding other parts of myself.

And when I wasn’t working on those things, I was working to make enough money to survive. But when’s the last time I did a drawing or painting? I often can’t help taking some photos, but when’s the last time I posted one?

It’s sort of like I’ve been working so hard on feeding other people, with the projects I think could help a lot of people, that I haven’t been feeding myself.

So I took part of yesterday to start preparing a photo to post, which I hope to do soon.

I’m the variety guy, but didn’t have variety. Luckily, there’s a loophole. Maybe I needed the variety of not feeding those parts of me for a while??

Video Intro to the Shared Situation Guide

Here’s a brief video intro to one of my new projects, the Shared Situation Guide. It shows you how to access and start using the guide on your desktop and/or mobile. Your shared situation can be whatever your group is dealing with or considering. You can learn and use it on your own right now if you like, but stay tuned for upcoming online workshops for learning to use the guide!

No Fill Marks?

This short video (3.5 minutes) is for people who own French press coffee makers AS WELL AS designers and anyone interested in innovation and creativity. It also uses a mind map you can explore while learning some proximity thinking at the same time!

New One Minute Overview of Proximity Thinking

I’ve created a one minute overview of proximity thinking, including what it is, why the word “proximity,” and the main parts of the framework.

NOTE — THIS IS A PLAYLIST OF THREE VIDEOS. The first short clip is me introducing the new one minute overview, which will then play next so you can just wait for it to start. Then third, it will play a long video, and if you watch that I highly recommend clicking the FULL-SCREEN button (lower right corner when you hover your mouse over the video).
