My Epiphany

Almost without exception, the major fears in my life, when pushed through by force or choice, became some of the clearest reasons for success or at least forward momentum, giving me the ability to complete the next project or endeavor that came my way.

Sketchnote activity

To get at the heart of experimentation. Let's do it.
  1. Think of one experiment or project you want to commit to trying this year.
  2. Use the sketchnote techniques we learned to visually represent your idea for an experiment. Use the hexagons and pens in the back of the room to sketch.
  3. Post your sketchnotes of your experiment idea here or on Twitter with the hashtag #IPLZASTX
  4. See what your peers on Twitter are posting. Is there someone you can connect with to jump on this experimentation journey?
