Loving Sagmeister’s new site, and his sugar type makes my heart sing.

Here is his list of “Things I have Learned in my Life So Far”.

  1. Helping other people helps me.
  2. Having guts always works out for me.
  3. Thinking that life will be better in the future is stupid. I have to live now.
  4. Organising a charity group is surprisingly easy.
  5. Being not truthful always works against me.
  6. Everything I do always comes back to me.
  7. Assuming is stifling.
  8. Drugs feel great in the beginning and become a drag later on.
  9. Over time I get used to everything and start taking for granted.
  10. Money does not make me happy.
  11. My dreams have no meaning.
  12. Keeping a diary supports personal development.
  13. Trying to look good limits my life.
  14. Material luxuries are best enjoyed in small doses.
  15. Worrying solves nothing.
  16. Complaining is silly. Either act or forget.
  17. Everybody thinks they are right.
  18. If I want to explore a new direction professionally, it is helpful to try it out for myself first.
  19. Low expectations are a good strategy.
  20. Everybody who is honest is interesting.

WE SO PUMPED to be part of a knowledge exchange talk on Connecting Appalachia! With amazing people from Alabama and Vintage Theater in Clarksburg, and in the back stage room of @claycenter ! Sharin ideas on how we make connections within Appalachia, and between Appalachian and the World. Proximity and closeness breeds idea sharing and ideation. It’s something we take for granted in urban areas, where we are vertically stacked on top of eachother, and something we have to purposefully cultivate and manifest in rural America. So grateful for National Consortium for Placemaking, @tamarackfoundation, and all your partners for pulling us together the past two days at #cpls Appalachia! Monday morning we’ll be doing a brain download on all we’ve learned and all the inspiring folks we’ve met. #lookingatappalachia #connectingappalachia #creativeplacemaking @cpl_summit

SO MANY FOLKS from all over Appalachia tourin our Elk City neighborhood during this Creative Placemaking Leadership Summit: Appalachia !!! Thanks to the corners of West Virginia to Alabama to Georgia for letting us show you around our little neighborhood. We’re tackling everything from temporary art installs to unconventional workforce dev to mixed use space to creative financing to eyes on the street over here and there is always more to learn. Did you know that Elk City was originally its own city, until it was annexed into Charleston? Or that about half our west side building stock is considered abandoned? Learned that from our neighborhood planner today. Pumped for more workshops tomorrow at the @claycenter - hope to 👀 you there!! #elkcity #makeshop #creativeplacemaking #lookingatappalachia #cpls #gotowv @charlestonwv
