About This Class

The idea behind this course is to create a new environment that will pull you naturally towards your goals. 

The people you spend time with have a huge effect on your motivation and whether you keep old habits or adopt new ones.

The problem many people face when they want to change their life in some way is that their friends, colleagues and family hold them back or make it harder for them to stick to their new habits.

One of the easiest ways to counter these forces is to create a role models wall.

This is something that I have used for years to keep all of my role models top of mind. 

It's a simple idea. Find pictures of the faces of each of your role models and start printing them out and posting them on the walls of your bedroom or office.

This course teaches you how to do that, and do it well, but it also takes you through how to choose role models, how to make sure you have role models balanced across the 4 core areas of your life and also how to recognize bias in your role models that may be keeping you blind to certain people.

This course will also show you how to keep your role model images organized in your existing learning project system.

The whole idea of a role model is that they exemplify or model how to play a certain role in life well. 

To learn most effectively, you should get clear on what roles you play in the different areas of your life and then get clear on which role (out of the many each of your role models play in their lives) that you want to model.

Nobody is perfect and nobody has every role in their life completely figured out. Part of what you will learn in this course is how to think about potential role models who have certain qualities you want to model but others you definitely don't want to model. 

You only have so much space in your mind to think about the various people in your life. Use a role models poster wall to start upgrading the people you surround yourself with every day and it will pay off for the rest of your life.

I am the author of "Accelerated Learning for Entrepreneurs" and I have spoken at Harvard University on accelerated learning. 

My interest in the Google suite of cloud applications comes from the amazing ability to work together with other people in realtime and edit the same document together. I started using Google Docs years ago to collaborate on design and business projects and discovered that there were many uses for the Google Drawing app. I later realized that all the same functions were available in Google slides. In effect, each "slide" was like a page in a book, or a separate Google Drawing canvas...but all in the same single Google Slide document.

I constantly had problems with collaborators who were not technically inclined and couldn't understand or use (or even afford to buy) adobe programs, so I ended up making numerous micro-adjustments and sending version after version, which was a tedious process.

One day I was trying my hand at a flat design poster after seeing one that I liked on the city and started to think...I bet I could create this exact design in a Google Drawing. I sat down for half an hour and I did it! 

My mind was racing with all the possibilities.

Many years ago I worked my way up from Newspaper Layout editor to Editor in Chief, and spent many late nights in Adobe Indesign. Once I had proven to myself what was possible, I decided to try a simple newsletter design I would have otherwise used InDesign for, but in Google Slides.

Again, it worked beautifully!

I've been tweaking my methods, learning all the ins and outs of Google Slides over the past year to see how much functionality from Photoshop I could "port over" to Google Slides.

It turns out you can do quite a bit. 

I have been using Photoshop for over 10 years and this recent project with Google Slides has been a great constraint to simplify my designs and do more with less. 

Flat design is where everything is moving, and it's easier than ever to bang out quick designs, work with non-designers and get things done fast by using Google Slides for basic to intermediate designs that you would otherwise need Photoshop or InDesign to do properly.
