If you’re using powerpoint, you must see this video.

I love this video by Don McMillian about bad powerpoint presentations or about how to write better powerpoint presentations.

I especially like the example about graphs to present datas…

If you are using powerpoint, you must watch this !

 

On this topic, you can also read the series of posts about  “The Art of presentation”  part 1part2part3 and part4.


  

My new social Workflow (thanks @tacanderson !)

I read all posts written by Tac Anderson on his blog newcommbiz.

Last wednesday Tac published a very interesting post about his new social workflow.

This post is very good because it’s very clear, concrete and explains everything about Tac’s organisation on social medias ( to publish posts on his blogs, Twitter, facebook, to share good links, …).

I let you read it for further details.

Based on this, I’ve improved and updated my own system.

The main changes are :

  1. I’ve created a new blog on tumblr : lmaulight.
    I’ll post on this blog all the links I share : my own blog posts and other good posts I find.
    I’ll also post photos I take (not sure what I’ll do with path).
    If you want to follow everything about me , just follow it !
  2. I’ve also decided to use diigo.
    Diigo seems to be more than a bookmarking tool, but for a start I’ll use it just for this purpose : it will collect all the good links I find and help me to retrieve them.
    Later I’ll see if I can do more with it.
To implement this, I use ifttt.com and buffer as recommended by Tac.
I’ve not yet implemented a facebook page. I’m thinking about it, but not decided yet…
I hope to see you on my blogs soon !
What do you thonk about it ? Any idea ? Any comment ?

My best photos : Jump in the swimming pool

I took this photo in Singapore.

I like the movement, the energy.

This post is part of a serie of posts in which I present my best photos. All of them have been taken by me. The quality is not professional of course, but I love them. You can find all the posts here.

To succeed, you need to fail !

As you know, I’m reading a lot of things aroound innovation.

1 key thing I’ve understood is that to be good in innovation, you must take risk, and fail.

A good example is google.

Google laucnhes many product, some have huge success, but some are also big failure.

This nice infographics shows this.

A key number : in 12 years, google launched 251 products, 90 have been cancelled !


  

The growth of social media : key numbers

This infographic is very nice.

It presents a lot of significant numbers about social media.


  

My experience with ZTD / Week 5 results (3 MITs per day) : 78 % success !

Pasture Juniper  (Juniperus communis ssp. depressa)

This is the report #5 of my experimental implementation of  Zen To Done the productivity methodology by Leo Babauta.

As a reminder, the first habit I’ve decided to implement is to define every morning the 3 Most Important Topics (MITs) I want / need / commit to achieve during the day.

During week #1, the success rate has been 52 % (11/21) , during week #2, it has been 47% (9/19), and during week #3, a total failure (6%), week #4 had been better : 59% success !

Here’re the results of week #5 :

 

  • 3 MITs for the week : Did I defined 3 MITs  ? :  YES,  How many did I achieve : 3/3
  •  Day 1 (February 13th) : Did I defined 3 MITs ? : YES, How many did I achieve :3/3
  • Day 2  (February 14th) : Did I define 3 MITs ? : YES, How many did I achieve : 3/3
  • Day 3 (February 15th) : Did I define 3 MITs ? : YES, How many did I achieve : 1/3
  • Day 4 (February 16th) :Did I define 3 MITs ? : YES, How many did I achieve : 2/3
  • Day 5 (February 17th) : Did I define 3 MITs ? : Yes, How many did I achieve : 2/3
  • Total : I’ve defined the MITs everyday, I’ve achieved  14/18 (78%).

 What are  my conclusions ?

  • 14/18  is a better  result compare to last week and is my best result ever!
  • As decided last week, I’ve improved my routine, and I’ve defined the 3 MITs  before starting my day, everyday.
  • defining MITs everyday really helped me to be (at least feel) efficient !

Next week will be avacation week, so I’ll not try to apply this routine everyday. It will be an off week.

I’ll start again the week after, the objective will be to keep a good level of success, I’ll not try to implement a new routine.

Looking for a calendar excel template : compact calendar is for you.

Français : Saint-Véran - Cadran solaire

I was looking for a template to construct in excel a calendar to plan my travels during the full year.

The good template is not easy to do as they are many ways to represent a calendar !

Finally I found the very good “compact calendar” proposed by David Seah.

David proposes nicely done excel and pdf templates that are configurable and present 1 year (or 16 months) on 1 single A4 page.

I like it because it’s simple, well designed, and very easy to use.

I let you have a look at it, I hope it helps.
