From the Order of Operations Department.
It’s settled. Work-Life Parallel and Gearbox Magazine are merging to become The Gearhead Project.
I’ve spent a few weeks thinking about all the nuts and bolts. How to combine all the content here with the content there and then get all of the above onto a new site. There’s so many moving pieces to this, I wanna spit out my guts and cry about it, as Tiffany would say.
But you know what? That’s a trap.
That’s what happened to #nlgs18.
Here’s the correct order of operations:
1. What difference am I trying to make in people’s lives with this change?
2. How will The Gearhead Project make those differences?
3. What’s the experience I want people to have?
4. How do I deliver that experience?
I’m seeing things a little more clearly now.
PS: If you’ve been reading these things, your advice would be helpful.
