  1. 1. PRESENTED BY : SINDOOR
  2. 2. • Scott Belsky is an American entrepreneur and best-selling author. • Best known for co-creating the online portfolio platform, Behance, Inc. In 2010. • Behance is a platform to showcase and discover photography, graphic design, illustration, and fashion.
  3. 3. • A probable solution • Anything that may simplify a complex problem • An alternate method • Anything that may maximize output
  4. 4. We have so many great ideas, but most of them never see the light of day
  5. 5. • The reason is that our own creative habits get in the way.
  6. 6. Avoid a “Reactionary Workflow”
  7. 7. • Schedule “windows of non-stimulation” every day. • To aggregate all messages in a central location. • Learn to say NO !.
  8. 8. Segment Projects To Three Primary Elements Action Steps Backburner Items Reference Items
  9. 9. Action steps are tasks that can be articulated succinctly and begin with verbs. Backburner items are ideas that come up during brainstorming or while on the run and that are not actionable but may be later on. The articles, notes and other stuff that collect around you. Action Steps Backburner Items Reference Items
  10. 10. Measure Meetings With Action Steps • Meetings are extremely expensive considering the cost of time and interruptions they represent. • Beware of “posting meetings” or meeting “just because it’s Monday.” • A meeting that ends without any action steps should have been a voice mail or email.
  11. 11. Reduce Your Insecurity Work Insecurity work is stuff we do that • has no definable outcome, • does not move the ball forward in any way and • takes up so much time that we can do it multiple times a day without realizing it.
  12. 12. • Becoming self-aware. Identify the insecurity work in your daily life. • The second step is to establish guidelines and rituals for yourself that create discipline. • The third step, if applicable, is to delegate your insecurity tasks to a less insecure colleague, who can review the data periodically and report any concerns.
  13. 13. Most ideas are abandoned at what we can call the “project plateau”: the point when creative excitement wanes and the pain of deadlines and project management becomes burdensome.
  14. 14. • Room 1: Rampant idea generation without any restraints. • Room 2: Aggregate and organize ideas generated in room. • Room 3: Critical review.
  15. 15. • “What doesn’t make sense with our current plan?”
  16. 16. • What external conditions may explain the failure? • What internal factors may have compromised your judgment • Are there any gems in the unintended outcome?”
  17. 17. • Show your ideas some respect, and spend some energy improving how you execute. • If not for you, do it for everyone else who will benefit from your ideas once they actually see the light of it and only then you can taste SUCCEES
