Dream in Years but SHIP daily

1. How to think about your life.

DJ Patil, a former US Chief Data Scientist used to have these four lines written in a card.

“Dream in Years, Plan in Months, Evaluate weekly, Ship Daily”

Dream in Years: Think long-term and imagine the life you want to live. 

Plan in Months: Break your Multi year dreams into small, actionable monthly “Rocks”

Evaluate Weekly: See if you are hitting your weekly milestones to conquer your monthly rocks. If not, switch. 

Ship Daily: Make Progress Daily on your goals. Make and “ship” measurable progress Daily on your goals. 

I found this framework extremely useful.

2. 10 TIPs for Creating Characters

Here’s a video I made on 10 TIPs for Creating Characters Explained under 5mins, that would radically help your character design process.

3. Favourite Quote of the Week

“People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.”

– Steve Jobs

That’s it for this week folks.
See you in the next one 🙂

Best,
Kesh.
