I love Seth Godin’s idea of “shipping” projects! Get your projects as far as you can, do your best, and send it out the door. Doesn’t matter if it’s perfect or not, it’s done. Then, you move on to the next project. And guess what, you ship that one too.
If it doesn’t ship, it doesn’t count. – Seth Godin
Godin recently wrote a blog post listing some of the projects he shipped in 2010. Here is my own (far less impressive) list of shipped projects for 2010:
- The SCVNGR Trek at the Urban Ecology Center.
- A Digital Storytelling portfolio site with three stories I’m quite proud of.
- This blog.
- Setting up and maintaining social media channels for the Urban Ecology Center. Like Twitter, Facebook, and Foursquare.
- Video coverage of the Teen Adventure Challenge at the Urban Ecology Center. Like this one, this one, this one, and this one.
There may be a couple of other things that I’m forgetting, but I’m pretty happy with this short list. Here’s to even more “shipping” in 2011!
