Cube 61 – How to Get Things Done

 You have a dream. You might or might now know what it is, but there is something that you deep down want to do.

This cube deals with starting out on a path to achieve your dream, or getting things done (GTD). No matter if it is skysurfing, building a company, making a podcast or other art.

It takes the short Ted Talk by Matt Cutts (you can view below) and part of the book Linchpin by Seth Godin. Seth presents a plan, Matt does too, but you might see then after the same general steps, or you might not. That’s for you to decide.

Starting Questions:

  1. Does Matt Cutts follow the steps that Seth Godin spelled out? Do you?
  2. How do you find a balance between starting & finishing (the two sides people have the most issue with)?

Cube32 – How to Game Google ?!?!?

Many people obsess about their rankings in Google searches. Maybe instead of spending time and lots of energy on SEO and other dark arts, look at what Google says they care about.

In this cube, Matt Cutts, Chief Google WebSpam Executioner, tells what Google is looking for, and moving towards.

 

Over a year after this cube from This Week in Google 30, the same message has come from Google over and over & they are more effective at the things they have talked about.

 

Now, compare what you think about vs what Google thinks about.
