- means of sharing body of work (platfor)
- means of getting paid (money)
Ideas for What to Do
- Look for things you create that you could sell.
- Talk to 100 people - offer a free 1/2 hour session of your time.
- Focus instead on making something that matters and connecting with people who get what its' all about.
- Implement the Kanban approach: To Do, Doing, and Done.

- Step two: try out the common thread approach. For each starred item, ask yourself what drew you to this area? Do you see any commonaities amoung your answers? Which values are most important to you? Are there any philosophies that you live by? Things you do? Can you identify any hidden motivations or driving forces behind your choices?
- Step three: try combing unrelated interests. ____interest 1___ for ___audience related to interest 2_____
Make a list of things to give up:
