Staying Focused on Your Small Charity Project with Lean Canvas

I’m a huge fan of the Lean Canvas.

Lean Canvas is a simple tool that can help you to quickly structure your thoughts for a product or business concept.

I use it all the time as a Product Manager to flesh out potential product ideas. It also comes in handy when a new business idea pops into my head. But Lean Canvas isn’t just for investigating products that make money.

Hey hey, welcome to my newly designed blog! And when I say “newly designed”, I mean I went through the ‘agonising’ process of selecting a completely new theme. Yay for me!

I know I haven’t blogged in awhile – it’s been about 8 months to be exact. I wanted to explain to you what I’ve been up to, and why I haven’t been blogging.

The Ultimate Guide to Planning Your Week Like a Boss

(Featured image photo credit: Unknown via Adobe Spark)

As a blogger and wannabe-entrepreneur, I always have 100 different tasks I want to get done. These often become weekly activities that I need to achieve to grow my blog/business. When I first started blogging, I used my iPhone’s Calendar app to manage my weekly schedule. You might be using a digital calendar too. You might even be keeping it old-school and using paper diaries or calendars. (I ain’t judging – I love x100 paper stationery.) But how much time are you wasting on maintaining these calendars and diaries? How flexible are these tools?

More than three months ago, I started to learn improv acting and gained valuable lessons immediately. When the programme ended, my improv buddies and I were in an awkward phase of not knowing what to do with ourselves with everything that we had just learned. Some of my classmates were content with the fact that they had attempted improv acting, and decided not to pursue it further. The rest of us were eager to grow our improv skills to the next level, but a ‘Level 2’ programme was not yet confirmed to happen.

When I first decided to create a blog, I was aware of WordPress.org. But I was too afraid to go near it – I heard that there would be steep learning curves and that it would require some serious technical knowledge to set it all up. As much as I love technology (and I even work in the technology sector), my brain wasn’t ready to cope with anything new and difficult back then. All I wanted to focus on was creating great content for my new blog. If I knew that it wouldn’t actually be that difficult or technical to set up, I would have opted for WordPress.org to begin with.
