How Do You Do?

I am the type of person that likes to hear about how people who are good at what they do do what they do.

English majors, let me have it for that sentence. I deserve it.

I am a fan of Food Network, not for the recipes, but to see professional chefs cook. I enjoy learning from others that are good at what they do.

So, how do you do what you do?

There is not really space here to go into your particular talents or abilities, so let’s focus on tools. What tools do you use to do what you do? Professional, amateur, hobby… up to you. Software, hardware, technology, transportation, resource, whatever.

By the way, preachers: the Bible is NOT a given! Which translation? Study helps? A favorite note-taking technique?

Musicians, here is your chance to talk gear. String gauges, amp settings, plug-ins, patches, pedals, 6 or 7 or 4 or 5 or 8 strings… what’s your pleasure?

  1. I read a lot; in the last few years I’ve tended to do so electronically. But after buying a bunch of books at the Orange Conference, I found myself re-learning former best practices.
    When I read a book, I tend to highlight and annotate them quite a bit–that helps me focus on main points and retain a little more than just reading the text.
    When I finish a book, I usually note inside the front cover that I read it, and the date I completed reading it.
    For books that I might re-reference, I will then flip back through my mark-up and transpose key points onto a 3×5 card that I keep in the book. That way, I can rapidly spin back up on key points.
    Perhaps you now see why I’ve gone electronic whenever possible…search capabilities are so much faster–although somewhat at the cost of outsourcing my direct recollection of detail.

    1. Good thoughts. I always read books with a retractable highlighter and my Bible with a pen and my Moleskine.

      Regarding the electronic reading… Just get your iPad already! 🙂
