About This Class

Everyone makes mistakes.

Everyone has failures.

But what do you make out of those mistakes? 

Out of those failures?

Do you learn from them?

Do you really learn from them?

What I mean by that is...how long does it take for you to forget what you learned?

How many times have you found yourself making the same mistake over and over again?

That's what this system is designed to solve. 

It's designed to be a single place where you eventually will have years worth of data on all the mistakes you make, big and small.

But it's not just a place to store mistakes.

You could just as easily call this a "solutions" journal.

This thing....it's not just about mistakes and solutions... it's also a place to analyze both your mistake and brainstorm multiple solution options.

Over time, you will be able to come back and look at both the mistakes you've made and the solutions you've come up with to solve them.

We all have a lot going on.

It's really easy to make a mistake and forget about it hours or days later.

Sometimes you have a solution in mind, sometimes you don't.

Failure can happen because you didn't know what to do, or because you knew what to do but didn't have the will or motivation to do it.

The mistake most people make is that once they make a mistake or have a failure, then never do anything about it.

They never address the issue.

And often times the problem, as well as the solution, have to do with the systems you have operating in your life. 

So when you let a problem fester, you opening up yourself to a lot of other related and down stream problems.

The mistakes journal also has a mechanism for you to track the progress on the solution to each mistake so you know if the solution has been implemented or not.

One mistake may cost you a little, it may cost you a lot.

But a lot of little mistakes also cost you a lot.

Especially when you are making the same mistakes over and over and over again.

Over the course of the next new months and years, you should expect to save hundreds if not thousands of dollars worth of your own time, money, energy and opportunity cost by keeping an organized mistakes journal. 

See you inside,

Timothy

Author of "Accelerated Learning for Entrepreneurs"

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.
