I threw away a few of my minibooks last month.
I don’t regret it.
Have you started time-consuming projects like minibooks, and later realized the project is not as meaningful and inspiring as you once thought?
- Just because you were inspired to do something at one time, doesn’t mean it will stay inspiring.
- Just because you started something, doesn’t mean you have to finish it.
- Just because you finished something, doesn’t mean you are stuck with it.
Not everything is equally valuable and not everything is worth keeping always and forever.
But not every less-valuable minibook is utterly meaningless and should be thrown out, either.
What do you do with the projects that have lost their glow, both the finished and the unfinished?
Realizing I needed to free some space (and some peace of mind) I evaluated each one of my minibooks. Minibooks are bulky, hard to store, and more prone to damage, right?
In addition to the few mini’s I tossed away, I also found these:
- unfinished minibooks that have meaningful parts, but are not meaningful as a whole and aren’t worth finishing
- completed minibooks that have meaningful content but are not very sturdy in their current form
Do you have some like this?
It is okay to change directions.
I decided to change directions with these last two types and re-purpose them or reformat them into something different. I did this for 3 different minibooks in a video we released last night. In this video you’ll see 3 different options for what you can do if you have minibooks that are a nuisance in their current form, not as sturdy as you’d like, are not something you want to finish, or are only partially worth the space they’re taking.
