5 Things I “Shipped” in 2011


Last year I compiled a short list of things I accomplished in 2010 and I liked the way it turned out so I thought I’d do it again for 2011.

The idea of “shipping” is to get a project as far along as you can and then send it out the door and move on to the next project.

So, here are five of my favorite things I “shipped” in 2011:

  • Completed the Master’s of Communications program at Marquette University and began a full-time position at the Urban Ecology Center.
  • Designed a much needed Case for Support for the Urban Ecology Center. A digital version can be seen here.
  • A “2011 Year in Review” fundraising video for the Urban Ecology Center.
  • Video coverage of the 2011 Teen Adventure Challenge.
  • And, I completed the Oshkosh Area Sprint Triathlon (my first Tri!).

There it is. I’m pretty proud of each of these.

What did you “ship” in 2011?


What I “Shipped” in 2010


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.

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:

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!
