Heart and Business 30: Future Blogs and Thinking Outside the Box

Hello, dear reader, and welcome to the last Heart and Business blog post, for now. I’m still going to write a blog a week on iPad/iPhone apps and games, maybe books and comics, or writing practice. I’ll focus on tips and tricks, reviews, and give my overall opinions on games in the app store. I hope to continue Heart and Business in the future.

Today I want to leave you with this thought: continue to search for inspiration. You can find it in the most unlikely of places. Or YouTube. YouTube works. I was roaming the vast library of videos when I found one about finding board game prototype component. It’s a video by One Thousand XP. They made me rethink the way I approach some of my current endeavors to create board games. Why spend several hours of your life making components when you can buy old ones, for pennies on the dollar, and repurpose them? It made me realize how I tend to seek perfection, even in prototypes for a half-baked concept, and how I could more efficiently approach this process. If you’d like to see the video you can click the links above to check it out and visit the creators’ channel.

Let me know what you think about the future blog direction, feel free to comment below on your thoughts, and follow my Facebook page or Twitter account to receive a notification when the next blog is posted. Have a good day, dear reader!
