“Continuity gives us roots; change gives us branches, letting us stretch and grow and reach new heights.” — Pauline R. Kezer
You will notice a different look and feel to the newsletter this week.
Earlier this year, I became unsatisfied with a few key things.
- My website did not represent the current state of the work I was doing for my various clients. I wanted to showcase my customers’ results.
- The whole website look and feel needed a good refresh. The changes over time just didn’t mesh well together!
- Most importantly, I was finding that the underlying technology and the way I was using it was slowing me down.
These are challenges many of my clients have faced in their work as well. Design and implementation need to be regularly revisited in order to maintain quality and value.
I looked at my website and stared across a chasm to what I knew would be better for my current and future clients as well as more effective for me. I stared with a bit of fear because I knew it would be hard work Since I was excited for the changes, I was also impatient with the time that would be required to implement them.
As with any paradigm shift, I would gain some new things and also lose the convenience of familiarity while I made the jump.
Over the last few months, I have been working with my webmaster to re-envision both the technology we use and how we represent the work I do.
With this newsletter, I jumped between mountains and I am scrambling up the side of a new one.
You will see my website has a new look and feel and new content. Let me know what you think.
You may also notice that many of the previous newsletters, and some other previous content, hasn’t made it to the new site yet. The key word is yet; they are coming back. In many cases, they will be coming back with improvements!
I know that the new design and technologies will enable me to move faster.
To lead with speed, sometimes you need to invest in the engine!
Yours in the calm pursuit of excellence,
