Super cool. Must watch. Tate Modern has released a time-lapse movie showing the building of Herzog & de Meuron's Switch House extension. http://ow.ly/HhKD301xFsA

Think about the chair you are sitting on right now. How well is it designed? Is it optimal? A silly question. Optimal for what? Optimal is relative, and based upon what it is designed for. Perhaps you are sitting on a poorly designed chair. Poorly designed for what? Again, it depends.

Form follows function. How something is designed controls how it behaves and performs. You can tell the purpose of a chair just from looking at it. You know before someone sits on it whether it is wholly appropriate for the person who wants to use it–or not.

The same is true in business. How your business is designed controls how it behaves and performs. The problem is, many entrepreneurs begin business to make money–*not to serve a purpose*.

Design your business as if designing a chair. Read all about it in this weeks installment, The Science of Business- Part 4, Form Follows Function here: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/small-business-experiment-part-4-form-follows-geri-seiberling?trk=hp-feed-article-title-publish

We are discussing the Science of Business in this month's posts.

One of the greatest challenges of being an entrepreneur is to see yourself honestly. Why? Think about it. A person may have great determination to accomplish their goals. But you may be working hard at the wrong things. Devotion to excellence may make you a craftsman, but perfectionism is the enemy of completion. An entrepreneur may be chock full of ideas, but the only ideas that count are the ones that are completed and shipped.

Newton's Third Law of Motion says that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. For every strength that has helped you to become successful in the first place, there is an equal and opposite weakness that will undermine your success when the going gets tough.

In this week's post, find 5 tips to help you keep the balance: The Weakness of Strength: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/small-business-experiment-part-3-weakness-strength-geri-seiberling?published=u

It is a visual poem. It is graphic design. it is typography as visual art. The letters are themselves at a minimum amount of detail. It is 'designed' to engage you to figure out what it says. I find it fascinating and clever.

The story I share today is just one of the days where Murphy's Law prevailed in our small business. The story fortunately has a happy ending, and we did overcome. But yes, crap, and Murphy's Law happens. Murphy's Law is a colloquial way to describe The Law of Entropy–a cosmological constant of the Universe–and a law for which none of us can escape. But smart entrepreneurs will prepare and anticipate at least some of the things that can go wrong. It's called a business plan. We encourage you to at least have a one-pager. . . because if you don't anticipate at least some of the problems that come your way, you will never outlast the barrage of daily life.

If you have a hard time making decisions, you will not get anywhere in business.

All this month we will be talking about how we can harness the techniques of Science and the Laws of the Universe to make our businesses better.

We want to encourage you to think like a scientist. How do you make decisions in your business? Is it all head and no heart? All heart and no head? You've got to have a bit of both. But if you are not using a method to help you make those decisions, you may end up with . . .well. . .. an explosion in the lab.

While you are waiting to read this month's posts, stir up the office a bit. Start thinking like a scientist. Don your lab coat and commence with the mad laughter. Everyone will at least be on their toes, because they will have no clue what will happen next.

Haven't posted for a while. Always feel like I need something worthy of this group. (You guys rock.) And I found one. . .  combining two things I love into one. Graphic Design and the Symphony.

Here's how Hannah Chan-Hartley, the managing editor and musicologist at the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO) helps the audience follow along–a graphical guide to represent the structure of the piece.

Hannah oversees the production of the orchestra’s various printed programs, from designing layouts and writing and editing content, to the creation of its intriguing ‘listening guides’ with graphic designer Gareth Fowler.

In my humble opinion? Fabulous!!!!

I don't know if you love classical music or not. But do you think this would help you understand it better? I studied music in college, and even if I know the piece well, I would like this.

+Geri Seiberling Agreed on all counts — anything that makes the music more approachable is a good thing. Bonus points for making it less stuffy too!

If you haven't been to Back Alley Smoke House yet, you are missing out. Best BBQ meats in the area. You would think you were in the South. Gourmet soups, and the smoked corn muffins could be an entire meal. Great eating, and best kept secret in Central Iowa. I'm going to recommend that Jane and Michael Stern of Roadfood stop by and do a radio show.
