And live full-out. Starting today. Our ride together will be full of fun, inspiration, and entertainment. But above all else, I promise you, I will be honest.
I owe you that respect. And I still love this place. The restaurants. The pace.
The people. And those hot dogs on the street—incredible. I have zero plans to leave. Salt-of-the-earth-type people. Not perfect. But find me someone who is. The main thing is that they always did the best that they could do. And in my mind, the best you can do is all you can do. Worrying about things beyond your control is a pretty good formula for illness. And most of the things we so concern ourselves with about never actually happen.
I still miss them deeply and not a day goes by that I forget to appreciate them.
In my quieter moments, I sometimes reflect on the fact that we generally take the people we love the most for granted. Until we lose them. Then we take long, silent walks and pray for a second chance to treat them the way they deserved to have been treated. It happens too often, to too many among us. If you are blessed enough to still have your parents, honor them.
Which leadership style is most prevalent in your organization? Why should my team follow my lead?
How can I alter my competencies and behaviors to become this type of leader? If you are able to simply answer those questions then this book may not be for you. If you are like me, this really got you thinking to answer those questions. If that is the case then this is a must read for you. The first question left me stumped. Prior to reading this book, I had assumed that there was only one style that was the best to use while in a leadership position. There actually isn't one way that is better than the others.
There are styles that work better for you and your team. This book lists the three factors that affect which style of leadership is best for you and your team. The most important factors are your team, your task, and your role. Those factors seeming fitting because when I stopped to think about it, they really can change the way you lead. The author of this book then jumps right into three scenarios that will help you see what different types of leadership styles look like. The author does a great job of helping you understand the business and what the team is responsible for.
I really enjoyed this style of reading because it uses such in depth examples. I found the "leadership theories" to be very interesting. Earlier studies tended to focus on who the person was based on their personality while later studies tended to focus on what the person actually did.
A newer way of thinking tends to believe that people can learn how to be an effective leader not that they necessarily have to be born with leadership characteristics.
There are four types of leadership styles. The first style, transactional, is more of a "bossy" role. In this type of role you can fire or reprimand an employee if they do not meet expectations, as they are a paid employee.
You will have to be able to lead your team by telling them what to do. The next style is transformational. Transformational leadership is someone who is a motivator. This style requires that a leader is able to evaluate its team members and can choose the best job to enhance the teams overall effectiveness. This type of leader can get its members to go the extra mile when given a goal. Basically you adapt your style based upon the competency and commitment of your team members.
You will have to ask yourself two questions. What ability does my team have to accomplish the task? How motivated is my team to accomplish the task? The answer to those questions will fit into the "Maturity Levels" model in one of four possible ways. M1 is when your team's skills are lacking, but they are very motivated to achieve the end goal.
No special fonts: convert to outline If you need a special font, you need to make it into a graphic. Sometimes selecting the words and choosing Create Outlines will do it. But the resulting rasterized graphic will likely be a bad size and very pixilated.
Remove all indents: left and right, from lists Lists still do not translate well. All you can do is delete all special indents you set up.
Make it a numbered or bulleted list with no special bullet and let InDesign do the translation. Not good, but anything else requires you to crack the code and set up special CSS rules for the ol and ul tags. Eliminate fancy bullets: from lists You must crack the ePUB and change the CSS to use special bullets—either from dingbat fonts or graphics. Add chapter breaks before a section gets over K Supposedly graphics are not counted here.
But long files with no chapter breaks will not work. You must set up a H1 style headline and specify it as the chapter break. Eliminate all soft returns. You will get rid of all of them when exporting the ePUB.. Soft returns are a real problem when the reader can change fonts and font sizes at will while he or she is reading.
Eliminate all OpenType feature use Nothing can be done about this. Epub and ebook readers do not support OpenType features. The resulting pixilated type is the same problem we have been dealing with throughout this exercise. InDesign 5. The problem, of course, is that the resulting type is very pixilated. In reality, you need to think of a way to design around the need for either tabs or tables. They simply do not work well or translate into ebook limitations.
The only rules you have available are Underline and Strike-through without any customizing allowed. The only problem with that is the lack of spacing control. Plus there is no way to do an overlap so you cannot have a rule as a bar from which the type reverses out to white. You can only use borders on a graphic. The ePUB readers cannot put borders on a frame. If you have type in the frame make it clear enough to work as a Web graphic. Basically that is all ebooks allow.
Now you can use nested styles. For example, I would only change style and color. You can set the export options to automatically open your ePUB after it is exported. If you own an iPad: open the ePUB in it to see how it will look there. It is especially important to check out the graphics and see how they fit. Adjust spacing as well as you possibly can. If you are typographically trained and visually sensitive, this first attempt at an ePUB will be a horrible shock.
The typographic ugliness of HTML after you have so carefully crafted your typography is a major hit to the senses. No kerning, tracking, or careful spacing. All the controls are very crude—displayed on a low resolution screen. Take a deep breath! Now get on with it. This is the reality of ePUB. Now your goal is to make it as easy to read as possible. Make the window narrow enough to be readable and go to it. It is likely that your first attempts will require you to fix several of your styles.
Thankfully, they control the entire document globally because everything is formatted with no local formatting. This is why the use of styles is so critical. Deal with reality Do not hang on to impossible requirements. The more simple you make your typography, the better it will work in this greatly restricted environment.
Just focus on readability: go easy on the bold, italic, and small type. If you have a style set up as a headline, with the keeps set up to start on the next page, the ePUB will start a new chapter when you use that paragraph style. Otherwise, every time H1, H2, or H3 is used you will get a page break. I can then turn on start new page for H1 without affecting H2 or H3. A major problem: Originally, I had two styles mapped to H2 and two styles mapped to H3.
I also chose No Page Number, which also turns off the leader. However, the ePUBs would not validate. I kept getting cryptic messages about TOC entries missing. Practicality rules in these things. You can spend time and money trying to figure out why these things are so or you can publish books.
I publish. As you can see above, this is just partially complete. The important things here are the title, description, and keywords.
You find this dialog in the File menu under the Get Info command It is required to fill out the File Info… description page. You open it at the bottom of the File menu.
They include things like the metadata title must be identical to the copy found on the cover. It must be in title case except for a half dozen or so tiny words. There are several others things like this. Cannot up-sell to a version of the product that is more complete.
Cannot mislead downloaders or misrepresent the ebook Example: An illustrated guide containing no illustrations or pictures. Subtitles are particularly important for differentiating multiple books in a series that share the same title. Improperly formatted HTML tags in the description can cause a garbled description in retail channels.
The first letter of all words in the title and subtitle should be capitalized, except for the following words: a, an, and, for, from, of, or, the, to. The first and last word of the title and subtitle should always be capitalized. Especially at the beginning of the book. Please remember to remove blank pages before converting to ePUB Must have a valid description.
Ex: Do not use the title. If you do not follow all of them precisely, they will not publish your book.
It is a real disappointment that we cannot edit these class rules, but I am strongly hoping that Adobe comes up with something for CS6.
