By: Sarah Doody // Get my weekly UX newsletter

On 12, Dec 2016 | No Comments | In Personal, User Experience | By Sarah Doody

As the end of the year approaches, I always like to take a quick little inventory of everything that I was able to accomplish. I like to do this because it’s easy to forget about everything we do throughout a year.

Welcome to 2016! This isn’t going to be a blog post about resolutions. The truth is, I don’t like resolutions. Most people make resolutions that are too big to achieve. Then they get discouraged and quit all together.

My EXECUTE Book Review

By: Sarah Doody // Get my weekly UX newsletter

Sometime last year, I saw a tweet about a “must read” book called Execute. So, I went and immediately purchased it. Then, I never read it. Failure to execute. I feel like I do this a lot. I’m not sure I should admit that …

One caveat is that this doesn’t refer to my business at all. Ask any of my clients, I execute! It only applies to things pertaining to me.

Last week, I took a look at the domains I own, and I realized that if I had executed on some of the ideas, I would probably have an amazing business from at least one of them.

Nearly 10 years ago, when I was living in Portland, Oregon my girlfriends and I always went to happy hour. One night, we had the idea to create a happy hour review blog. No one was doing it.

I can’t remember what site this is from (I found it years ago and have kept it in a text file in my archives), but this is an excerpt of an interview with Dave Eggers, a writer and philanthropist. Every now and then I read it, and am always inspired in a new way. I really hope it inspires you too.

On 07, Sep 2012 | No Comments | In Personal | By Sarah Doody

Last week I quit my job. I wasn’t going to write one of these blog posts. But the thing is, I love to write, and above all, I love stories and the power they have to inspire, entertain, and educate. The process of writing – the forced creation and evaluation of your story Keep Reading >
