Longest stretch of quietness I’ve had since launching the blog a couple of months ago. I’ve been a touch buried in “critical paths” and critical path work. I love this post by Seth Godin: Understanding critical path
The longest string of dependent, non-compressible tasks is the critical path.
Badass Backpacks has several things we’re working to ship, so we have several critical paths all happening at the same time. Whew… busy. Bag production, still wrapping up. Website development, underway. Establishing our identity, always evolving. 🙂 I’ll keep posting updates here as inch along our critical path to ship.
Seth Godin and the #altMBA
I am so amazingly thankful for all of the ideas and observations that Seth Godin has shared in his work and in his writing. He has had a profound impact on the way I go about my own work. Which is why I am over-the-moon-ecstatic to announce that I’ll be participating Seth Godin’s altMBA workshop in the January 2016 session! The altMBA is an intense one-month workshop created by Seth Godin and his team, directed by Winnie Kao. I’ll be participating in the altMBA with Badass Backpacks on my mind, and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for the January session. Given what I’ve learned from Seth’s work already, I can only imagine that there will be plenty of important questions to ask, and plenty of important work to get done. I’ll give some altMBA shout outs on this blog once it gets underway. Kick off will be on Jan 11. While they say over and over that we will be intentionally drinking from a fire hose — I am smiling ear-to-ear with excitement and anticipation. I think it will be a great thing for the critical path we are walking on and dreaming of creating with Badass Backpacks. I can’t wait to get started!
