This morning I’m thinking hard about solving the audience-centered design problem for my personal website, and the best way to present my advertising portfolio which isn’t public yet.
I do not want a static profile. I want a two-way reader-friendly, minimalist platform which enables me to share insightful lessons and stories from my life and work, which could be helpful to many creative professionals around the world. I started my publishing journey way back in 2005, and there’s a goldmine of life + business insights there.
I need to sit down and write that content thinking book which I promised to write based on my Content Manifesto for Startups & Brands (2013), and a content + design / marketing blog for global audiences. Basically, there is a lot to figure out while contemplating and writing about designing business and technology solutions to solve difficult, real world problems, persisting and probable.
Science fiction is one of the immediate, effective and intimate modes of identifying, exploring and coming up with possible solutions for present and future problems. The challenge for world leaders and social entrepreneurs is to apply lessons/insights from orderly fiction in the chaotic world. How do I connect these dots of interests and strengths for business and social impact?
“Think in decades,” a business mentor once told me. My wild and roaring twenties are nearly over. It’s time to lay the ground for 30s to come, and try to lead by example.
Thank you for being with me in this exploration of self and the world! <3
