After six full months of creating visual quotes for Observation Paper, the 29 posted in May brings the total to 189. Also in May, I took advantage of an invite from Michael Schechter to write a post for bettermess.com by capturing learnings from this daily quote endeavor which forced me to define what’s the point of this habit:
To consume enough high-quality information every day to discover at least one quote, idea, or thought worth sharing; and then to present it in a visually compelling way.
Ironically, the most noted post from May was the more “traditional deep-thoughts-from-famous-dead-people format” saying from Walt Disney. I still count it as a timely, relevant quote because I heard it on recent episode of Back to Work. The second most noted was this distinction between training and education from Ben Ponder.
