There’s Always a New Trick to Learn

"The great thing about a world record is that it gives meaning to a mundane task.

I don’t worry too much about people emulating me because people who have the get-up-and-go to do something like this usually have the common sense to know when something's going wrong.! It's a good time to be an inventor. If people want to learn to do something, they can easily get the information where before it was quite hard.

There’s always a new trick to learn. There’s always something you can do bigger and better."

One Week from Today: “Born for This” Goes Into the World!

cgoperabook - 7 One day I’ll drink less coffee... but it won’t be anytime soon.

Over the past few weeks I’ve had my passport locked in a drawer, and I haven’t allowed myself to purchase any plane tickets that cross an ocean. Am I tired of seeing the world? Nope. I’ll actually be on the road to 30 cities starting very soon, but they’re all in the U.S. and Canada.

In exactly seven days, my new book Born for This will launch into the world.

14682770213_d9fdfb489a_k There are fewer than 100 days until my new book, Born for This, goes out into the world. This probably sounds like a long time for some people, but as an author it feels like it's right around the corner.

The purpose of the book is to help people find the work they were meant to do. To reach a worldwide, engaged audience during the launch period, I'll need a lot of help!

That's why I’m starting a private group for a special group of readers who’d like to be part of the launch planning. Join me and let's do something fun!

52-Week Art Project Creates Illustrative Postcards About Life

Workspace3 Who doesn't like getting hand-written postcards?

Designers Giorgia Lupi + Stefanie Posavec were living parallel lives as expats in London and Brooklyn when they decided to start a year-long postcard project.

Each week, they sent each other a postcard—but not just any postcards. As artists who work with data, each postcard illustrates a particular type of data about their lives.

After all 52 weeks, the project recently ended. You can see a few of the postcards below, or more on their site.
