These are some links I ran across this week that I enjoyed and found somewhat inspiring. Two of them are design blogs, one of them is a couple’s blog, and the other is one by a book cover designer. I like his projects and his attitude (see the side note about How to Design a Book Cover). The last link is information from the Harvard Business Blog about how you can increase productivity when you’re on a deadline. Applies particularly to people who are self-employed or do freelance work.

This is great! I may need to get this tattooed on my forehead though.

3. Avoid the curse of the “final push.” Scope and sequence a project so that each part is shorter than the one that precedes it. Feeling the work units shrink as you go gives you a tangible sense of progress and speeds you toward the end. When you leave the long parts for last, you’re more likely to get worn out before you finish. Besides, if you’re “dead at the deadline,” those other projects you’re juggling will stagnate.

I always dread the last day because that’s usually the busiest. But it doesn’t have to be! :p
