Project: Create a Doodle about "25 Hours in a Day"

For this month's project, we're asking you to show us—with a doodle, of course—what you would do with an extra hour.


Welcome to the latest edition of the GOOD Doodles project. Hopefully you had a chance to check out last month's project, a "Day in Another City," which yielded some amazing submissions.

For this month's project, dubbed "25 Hours in a Day," we're asking you to imagine that an hour has been added to each day, 30 hours to each month, 360 to each year. Sure you could always add an hour to your day by cutting back on something. But what if you didn't have to? What if tomorrow all of a sudden you had an extra hour to play with? What would you do?



the OBJECTIVE
Create a doodle that tells us about how you would use an extra hour each day.

the ASSIGNMENT
The doodle can be as broad or as specific as you wish. Would you do anything drastically different, or just spend more time doing the same? Would you do something good for the world? Improve yourself?

the REQUIREMENTS
Submit you doodle here. It can be in any image format, but ideally it should be high enough resolution that it can be printed at 300 dpi. We prefer images that are taller versus wider (the above was a 6:8 ratio). There are numerous methods for creating visual notes whether through digital means (tablets, digital sketchpads, etc.) or tangible methods such as using a Moleskine. Regardless of your choice, please ensure the images are as clean as possible. Feel free to include a brief summary of your illustration. We’ll take submissions now through January 31.

We'll be awarding the best overall doodle with a GOOD T-shirt and free subscription (or gift subscription) based on overall quality of illustration, relevance to the theme, and clarity and flow.

We'll share some of the submissions with upcoming update posts.

When the iPhone 11 debuted on September 10, it was met with less enthusiasm than the usual iPhone release. A lot of techies are holding off purchasing the latest gadget until Apple releases a phone with 5G technology.

Major US phone carriers have yet to build out the infrastructure necessary to provide a consistent 5G experience, so Apple didn't feel it necessary to integrate the technology into its latest iPhone.

A dramatic new feature on the iPhone 11 Pro is its three camera lenses. The three lenses give users the the original wide, plus ultrawide and telephoto options.

We often dismiss our dreams as nonsensical dispatches from the mind while we're deep asleep. But recent research proves that our dreams can definitely affect our waking lives.

People often dream about their significant others and studies show it actually affects how we behave towads them the next day.

"A lot of people don't pay attention to their dreams and are unaware of the impact they have on their state of mind," said Dylan Selterman, psychology lecturer at the University of Maryland, says according to The Huffington Post. "Now we have evidence that there is this association."

It's fun to go to a party, talk to strangers, and try to guess where they're from just by their accents and use of language. It's called 'soda' on the East Coast and 'pop' in the Midwest, right? Well, it looks like a new study has been able to determine where a Humpback whale has been and who he's been hanging out with during his awesome travels just from his song.

There is no shortage of proposals from the, um, what's the word for it… huge, group of Democratic presidential candidates this year. But one may stand out from the pack as being not just bold but also necessary; during a CNN town hall about climate change Andrew Yang proposed a "green amendment" to the constitution.
