Short Thank Yous and Feedback - Experimental

Thanks for the kind words :).
I have gained a lot from your sharing on this forum too.
Especially your well-thought-out reviews.
Those take a lot of time, and, as such, I appreciate them a lot.
Not forgetting your advice on my own personal situations too.

Your stories motivate me too :).
It shows what's possible in challenging situations.

Thank you Matthew and Ali for the precious feedback on logos / graphics.

And by the way, Ali, you could think if something graphics-related could become a calling / profession / business for you.
You do seem to have a talent for design-related stuff, including picture storytelling, and matching designs to brands and products.

Have you read the forum guidelines for effective communication already?

Always a pleasure Lucio.

I think Ali can certainly build a design-related business for a living.
He seemed to spin up so many good designs so quickly in such a short time.

Thanks to Ali and Lucio for the advice on the business partnership interaction.
It helped a lot.

I think we said this already, but this skill/innate ability of yours is something you might want to keep in mind for work / passion / entrepreneurial endeavor.

Thank you for saying that, Lucio, and same to Matthew. I saw both your notes on this and it means a lot to read.

That said, when it comes to most of these graphic designs I've done, a solid 90-95% of the work is already done for me by Canva's features and templates.

So, it would be the creative genius of Canva that gets most of the credit, I only do my best to adapt their material to TPM. And, if it turns out that you happen to like what I made, that would be more luck than anything else.

P.S.:

Hope you have better experiences with designers in the future, Lucio. It'll be a great day for TPM when you find a reliable professional who's more than a mere "monkey on a typewriter" as you put it.

It may seem pushy to say this, but Ali is probably not giving himself enough credit.

I think using powerful tools that can achieve fast results is a skill in itself.
Figuring what is needed for the end result is also really important.
Also, adapting current things to achieve the intended result is smart because one is not re-inventing the wheel.

But I'm sure Ali has many other pursuits so design may not be his priority at the moment.

Thank you for all of the "thank you's" in this thread guys, it really encourages me to keep doing what I can.

That said, of course, all credit goes to Kolenda for that feedback. All of the strategies are his, and I'm only the messenger.

This is starting a positive cycle of me wanting to thank you more.
You did all the heavy lifting man.

Thank you to Lucio for the advice so far.
Making the quiz questions does bring me new ways of looking at things.
Like when to use the "You" and the "I" in drawing boundaries.

Thank you for the thank you Matthew 🙂

As a quick off-topic, which quiz questions?
Are you referring to the new "assignment" section in PU?

I wanted to give a triple thank you but that may go out of control :).

Are you referring to the Materials section of Power University?
The links point to Monster Campaigns links but are not working.

Crowdsourcing Forum Examples for Quizzes

I am talking about the above project of making quizzes or training materials to supplement the more classroom-based nature of Power University.
It will focus on training the "feel" after people have the framework in mind for power dynamics.

Since we both thought it's a good idea, I went ahead to start working on it.

Thanks to Lucio for the detailed explanation in the other thread on covert power moves of thank you and sorry!

I see what Lucio means that the whole history and overview should be taken into account.
