Here is your weekly dose of “hmx-journal weekly”, a list of what I’m enjoying, pondering, or working on. Any feedback is welcome. Enjoy.
LOVED THIS ARTICLE…
…not only for the Star Wars reference. Do. Or do not. There is no try.
Resilience is about how you recharge, not how you endure. This is a short article on HBR by Shawn Achor and Michelle Gielan. They write about a common misconception concerning resilience. Tough and robust do not equal resilient.
QUOTE I’M PONDERING OVER
“We see the world, not as it is, but as we are – or, as we are conditioned to see it.”
– Stephen Covey
(I’m listening to Covey’s “7 Habits of Highly Effective People”. He’s churning out a lot of wisdom – very well worth it. See Pygmalion Effect for just one example on how conditioning influences our behavior.)
TED TALK I ENJOYED
Ken Robinson on personalized learning or creating conditions where kids’ natural talents can flourish, titled: Bring the learning revolution!
That’s all I want to leave you with for today. Feel free to forward this email. Have a great week!
