  1. Episode 20: Self Doubt with Merlin Mann — The Nudge

    How can we be sure that we’re on the right track? Doubt is the rust that eats away at our ability, as designers, to be confident that what we’re producing is good and worthwhile.

    In this episode Ross and Josh speak to professional speaking human Merlin Mann about overcoming or, perhaps, embracing self-doubt, to become better producers of quality work. Are we allowed to change our minds and how do we deal with the criticism that results from that?

    TOPIC: The Attention Stack

  9. 5by5 | Back to Work #64: Frozen Poster

    TOPIC: The Surprising Problems of "Doing What You Love"

    Merlin has some follow up on Agency: be in control of what you give away and why you charge what you charge, and Dan is interested in what happens when you stop loving what you love when you do it as a job.

    There are no guarantees, so don’t mistake the Federalist Papers for Constitutional Law, and if you miss the signs you shouldn’t be sailing, you’ll just end up vomiting in your bucket hat.

    You’re not going suddenly arrive and do what you love. You get there through course correction: look back at all the ugly birdhouses and look ahead for the next step toward building a home.
