The kind of work I do is what most people consider part of the creative part of a business, helping to design website content, producing videos and audio, co-producing a conference etc. But I think that just about everybody has to be creative in their workday in order to get things done and stay motivated. Especially those of you who are administrative assistants and executive assistants.
I want to share with you this week a website that is built for people who are in the “creative fields” called The99%.com. It is full of great tips and articles that will help just about anyone who is interested in getting stuff done. We’ve actually written about some other work that has been created by the same individual who started 99%. His name is Scott Belsky and the Office Dynamics team is a big fan of his book Making Ideas Happen and The Action Method.
Just today I saw a really interesting pdf. they created regarding the result to an audit they did called the 2011 Idea Execution Audit. It reveals how most creative people are spending their working hours and the results really do apply to many fields with the most obvious time sucker being e-mail. I have it here for you to download and take a look at.
While some of the articles may be geared towards freelance creative artists a lot of them will be very useful to you. Plus I love how creative the site itself is with the images they use and I find it visually pleasing. I bet at least 99% of you will too!
