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.

The Art of presentation #4 (we need to improve our presentations !)

95% of presentations are boring. Everybody use PowerPoint few people know how to use it.

This post is number 4 to introduce you a very good serie of slides written Eduardo S. de la Fuente .

If you do presentations, you should read this carefully.

If you missed previous posts, they are here, here and  here.

In this fourth edition, you’ll learn :

  • “there are 2 types of speakers : those that are nervous and those that are liars”
  • you must rehearse, rehearse, rehearse, ..
  • deliver your message during the first minute.

Relax, breath and enjoy !

Welcome to all Norwegian! (yesterday, 72% of visitors of this blog have connected from Norway)

Yesterday something strange happened.

72% of visitors of this blog have connected from Norway.

On a normal day, main connected countries are France and US.

I’m not sure what happened.

All this visitors came to see an old post “5 iconic images… in 3D” about which I sent a tweet yesterday morning

Is it because of the topic ?

Is it because by luck this tweet has been put on a homepage?

Was it just a robot ?

If you have an idea, or if you connect from Norway, feel free to leave me a comment here !

 


  

The rise and fall of personal computing

Changes are occuring faster and faster in tech world.

I love this chart from asymco.com, because it shows in 1 page this acceleration.

The Y scale is a logarithmic scale and even like this we can see that Android and iPad growth is just crasy compare to the whole history.

It shows also very well ho ;obile devices are boo;ing and are now more important than traditionnal personnal computing devices (PC, Mac).

Where will it stop ?
