If you want to boost your productivity, focus, creativity, or sanity, you need to leave your desk and take a walk.

Looking for some creative inspiration? Scientists at Stanford suggest going for a walk—whether indoors or outdoors, in a green space or on a treadmill—to give your creativity a boost. Compared to sitting, they found any form of walking could increase creative thinking by about 60%.

"We’re not saying walking can turn you into Michelangelo," said researcher Marily Oppezzo. "But it could help you at the beginning stages of creativity."

I remember that one day when my whole city got together as one. Black, white, pastors, youth, elderly, and disabled. We marched for greatness, we marched for justice, we marched for love, we marched for peace. We made history, and the entire world showed us love. We proved so many non-believers wrong. Lets not stop here though. This is just the beginning. ShowLoveShareLove. 
FOREVER MIKE BROWN! Keep smiling over us.

"I couldn’t sit at home and watch this unfold on the internet anymore. Walking down to W. Florissant, we were met by the police who were blocking off the street threatening to arrest all who did not leave the premises. We could see the SWAT Team approaching the protesters as they pushed us down the street. Fought back tears in utter disbelief the entire time. Still hopeful that some good will come from all this"  #dontshoot

One thing you will hear often in business is “do one thing and do it well.” It’s true. You may also hear something about picking a target market. That is definitely true as well. But UX actually works the opposite way.

Doing UX for everyone is easy. Selling to everyone is difficult.

Big Thanks to Chris K with the STL WP org for inviting me to post about one of my favorite plugins, Advanced Custom Fields

“Don’t wait for permission to make something that’s interesting or amusing to you. Just do it now. Don’t wait. Find a story idea, start making it, give yourself a deadline, show it to people who’ll give you notes to make it better. Don’t wait till you’re older, or in some better job than you have now. Don’t wait for anything. Don’t wait till some magical story idea drops into your lap. That’s not where ideas come from. Go looking for an idea and it’ll show up. Begin now. Be a fucking soldier about it and be tough.”

Quick tip for things to do immediately post-interview:

When I come out of an interview, I jot down the things I remember as being my favorite moments. For an hour-long interview usually it’s just four or five moments, but if out I’m reporting all day, I’ll spend over an hour at night typing out every favorite thing that happened. This is handier than you might think. Often this short list of favorite things will provide the backbone to the structure to my story.

Let me start by going back about a 18 months… After a couple years of “job hopping” and trying to find the “right thing” for me, I had finally landed at a creative recruiting and staffing company. After 3, maybe 4 months of what I consider to be the most stressful, frustrating working experience…
