Goodies! For Listeners of Melissa Dinwiddie…

by | Jun 21, 2017

Oooh! Hello!

I really enjoyed chatting with Melissa Dinwiddie about these ideas. She and I chat regularly, as we are accountability buddies, but it was fun to do a deeper dive on productivity. Both of struggle with the conventional notions of productivity.

Maybe you do, too.

I’m assuming you’re here because you just checked out our chat on her podcast: episode 114 of Live Creative Now, “Productivity for Inaction Heroes“. If you haven’t heard it yet, go check it out, and subscribe to her podcast on iTunes or on Stitcher.

Anyway, I’m so glad you’re here!

Are you here because you feel like an Inaction Hero? Want to do good, but wondering what you’ve been doing all day? Feel like you can never find a productivity system that fits? Tired of trying to meet a standard that doesn’t seem to prioritize what you value?

You might be creating in space that isn’t defined by an industrial or Production Model of value creation.

I’ve left some goodies for you.

Below are a couple of downloadable PDFs. They will give you an expanded outline of the Value Creation models we talked about in the podcast. I’ve also added a handout that you can use to organize your thinking about how you tend to create value in the world.

I’m still developing the ideas I discussed with Melissa.  I would love to hear your feedback and thoughts about productivity as it relates to the way you work and show up in the world.

And if you want me to keep you posted, please do subscribe to my blog. I have a number of posts planned on this topic, so I’d love to share them with you.

An Overview of Value Creation Models: How Do You Create YOUR Value? 

This overview gives a little more information about the ideas we discussed in the podcast.  I also recently spoke about these ideas on June 11 at the Vancouver Mini Maker Faire in Vancouver, BC. I wrote a fairly detailed post here.

Personally, I’ll think you’ll need a bigger sheet of paper. But hey, maybe you write with a very fine pen. Maybe you could glue the sheet to your wall, and write on your walls with a marker. I take no responsibility for your indelible choices.

Anyway, if you want a way to organize your brainstorming about the kinds of things you do and how they fit into the various models, here’s a sheet you can use.

I’m happy you came by. And please, consider subscribing to keep in touch!
