Use ChipIn to Pay as a Group

Use ChipIn to Pay as a Group

In office life, there’s the constant thrum of someone raising money through selling cookies, or collecting a few dollars for a baby shower, or a few more for someone’s 10 year anniversary at the company. It’s easy to give and receive money for these because you’re all in the same place. Sunil comes over and collects a few Euros, and then goes to see Ramesh and Shashi. Soon, the task is complete.

But what about situations where you’re not all in the same place? What about circumstances where the money to be collected is for a cause. Maybe you need a better, more targeted tip jar.

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
