Now I know that more than four of you have read whatever you're going to and have put Aha! aside. If you've called it quits, no harm done but please complete the survey at http://www.surveyshare.com/s/AYAKU3B
An editor told me he hates the title Aha! 75 Ways to Work Smarter. He says the number 75 is good for click-beta on blog posts but sounds schlocky as a book title. What do you think? What should I name the book?
Feel free add others names. (Polls here are limited to five items.)
I found the template very useful, +Jay Cross ! It is a wonderful self-reflection and self-analysis tool. I am going to share with my daughter too. We can revisit these parameters at regular intervals to do a self-check as well as gauge if we have changed/our purposes have evolved over a period of time. Thanks for creating this.
Working on new cover design. (My designer flaked out.)
From the copy on the back:
Learn from experience without instructors or classrooms. It’s Aha! learning.
Work smarter and have more impact Learn faster and remember more Learn out loud and embrace openness Make sound learning practices into lifelong habits Co-create knowledge with colleagues Plan how to achieve your growth goals Learn to be the person you aspire to be
Any MailChimp experts in the community who can lend me a hand?
I can't figure out why Mail Chimp is not delivering my Automated campaign. It's supposed to send a email one, two, three weeks after people begin Aha! I can't seem to trigger the first set of emails. They sit there, await 50 people on the list.
Damn. I can''t wait for this community to grow to a decent size so I'd get lots of volunteers when I make a request like this. "I store my knowledge in my friends" but a critical mass of them have yet to join us. (II do intend to make lots of friends here.)
By the way, 80 people are reviewing Aha! now so I expect a mountain of feedback and suggestions.
I spent the day cleaning up the text and tightening up the structure.. Aha! is getting more polished.
It's like a tomb in here. I know, I know. Summer. Kids. Vacations. Trips.
But do me a favor and say something here. Decloak.
A major point of the book is that you learn by really doing stuff, like posting a hello or a tip. Tell us about your experience with your new Apple Watch.
You'll find that a vibrant community pays back handsomely. But not until you come out of the closet. And you certainly won't understand the book if you don't experience the experiments it challenges you to take. .
I'm in Budapest and then on to Croatia, Slovenia and beloved Italy for the next few weeks and was hoping to have time to contribute. Lots of things to say because so many things are actually going on around all of us. Will get back in the saddle anon.
Travelling, by the way, is one brilliant way of learning about learning! If one has the humility to learn -of course, or just expand awareness, as well as the ability to dodge, or at least put in perspective the official lessons tourists are bombarded with.
