Great innovators are seldom born, they often emerge from the pain and ashes of great personal losses. Candy Chang’s Public Art Projects are changing communities everywhere and she says it all began after losing someone she loved, and instead of living in her deep depression, she choose to create an interactive wall on an abandoned house in her neighborhood. The wall provided an anonymous place to help restore perspective and share intimately with neighbors her feelings while remaining an introvert.
This resonated with others and became the “Before I Die project,” which took form when she stenciled the words “Before I die I want to _______.” on a chalkboard wall on an abandoned house in New Orleans. Overnight it became a place for people to pick up a piece of chalk, reflect on their lives and share their personal aspirations in public space. There are now 525 Before I Die walls in over 35 languages and over 70 countries. Read more
The worst advice I’ve ever heard about writing books!
The worst advice I’ve ever heard about writing books begins with the assumption that writing the book is the only reason for the writer to complete the book. Most writers have an idea of what they want to accomplish with their book. Some reasoning is transparent, like entertainment or information. In most cases the author wants their book read by as many people as possible. This brings into play a whole galaxy of “must-do things” that goes beyond finishing the manuscript.
Few people write books just to see their name in print. For those few people, the Internet offers a broad array of publishers and prices, more precisely printers, eager to fulfill the need. However, entertainment and information requires mass penetration of the probable market for whatever the topic covers. In these cases, beginning at the end can be more appropriate. Developing and refining an audience for the book, starts the journey on a successful path.
