20 Unusual Things 20 Successful People Do Every Day

20 Unusual Things 20 Successful People Do Every Day | Solutions Development | Scoop.it
Where success is concerned, sometimes the smallest things make the biggest difference.
Laura Malinowski's insight:

Contrasts are not only just on trend, they also make me who I am.

One contrast that I negotiate on a daily basis is between the digital and the real world. In biology class, we are taught that we are all made up of cells. In the digital world, our lives are constructed by pixels and our digital universe is created by a series of ones and zeros. I always found it fascinating that a jpg, a tweet, a video from YouTube, etc. are just combinations of numbers: mere data. I am constantly shuffling between cells and data: being a mother of two kids and trying to master the digital world.

Finding this fine balance is what defines me. Books and magazines make me as do iPads and smartphones. The web has helped me to get in touch and meet new people, but I haven't forgotten my old friends. I love twitter, but I also love a real conversation that escapes a 140 character limit. I love to read fashion blogs but nothing can compete with the tactile touch of a haute couture gown.

 -- Nina Garcia, Creative Director

 

I also send a weekly email to all employees called "Scott's Friday Note" using our software (HTML with pictures, etc) with insights from my travels and meetings along with key metrics, events, partnership, community activities, etc. I haven't missed a Friday Note since we started the program 5 years ago!  Rain or shine!

-- Scott Dorsey, co-founder and CEO, ExactTarget

7 Things Really Resourceful People Do

7 Things Really Resourceful People Do | Solutions Development | Scoop.it
It's nice to be told that you're smart, creative or driven. But if you really want to offer the ultimate compliment to an entrepreneur, the word you're looking for is, resourceful.
Laura Malinowski's insight:

7 Things Really Resourceful People Do: They - bend the rules - look for the common good - don't apologize unnecessarily - burn their ships (nothing focuses the mind and pushes you to look for innovative solutions like realizing you have no Plan B) - adapt and apply other experiences - play a few hands at once (always work on multiple plans) - dare to ask for what they need.
