I saw this via a Facebook friend and thought this is a really excellent piece of advice for teachers, too.

The way we move about in the world really shouldn't be all that different from one setting to another, if we are living with and as integrity.
Some of my best lessons in what it means to hold space for people came from a palliative care nurse.

I always thought if I could get my son to 25, he would be OK. Not sure if AEA falls under intentional or unintentional injuries, but it hardly matters now. He would be so annoyed to have done something so common. He thought he was invincible.

I think it should count as unintended. People walk up to the edges of cliffs all the time for the thrill, but they never really mean to go over

One of my favorite holidays. Because we need more of this kind of holiday!

"Representatives from Evergreen told commissioners they’d met with members of the surrounding Elmhurst neighborhood 20 times for the proposal. That might have been reflected in the relatively few people who spoke in opposition, relative to most other recent infill projects in Sacramento."

YA THINK??

​A new mixed-use project got the green light Thursday night for a part of Sacramento where such projects haven’t been common, at Stockton and T streets.

Shocked, I say. Shocked.

I wonder if the #cityofsacramento  will ever learn this lesson. Transparency makes EVERYTHING better.

This is a bit disingenuous, as our graduation rate begs to differ. I understand getting people in the door, and there is a goal to increase enrollment so we can get budget dollars. But I have to wonder how many people drop out because they didn't know it was going to take so long and be so challenging to go to college and hold down a job, as most of our students do. I also wonder if we would have lower initial enrollment, but greater retention.

I can't swear it's not in my local campus's system at all. There is HR-sponsored PD for "all employees" that is of a general nature. Required stuff such as anti-harassment training, security training, driving tutorial so we can get reimbursed for driving our vehicles on state travel. There is the occasional—semi-annual?—outside presenter paid for by our TLA (Center for Teaching, Learning, and Assessment). Through a serendipitous fluke, they "found" some money to send our First Year Program Coordinator to an actual First Year conference. They often—but not always—find a way for tenure-track faculty to present at a conference that can be shown to be directly related to getting tenure.

There is supposed to be a budgeted amount (rumored at $400 per annum) per faculty member that we can call on for individual PD. Can't prove it by me. I've been authorized some travel here and there over 15 years, for which I'm grateful, but no pattern I can ascertain, and it always seemed like a HUGE FAVOR from the department, not an expectation that faculty would benefit from PD or that the campus thought it was a good idea.

Hmm. I wonder where #GTD  would fit into this. I like the fact that she embeds different tools into the styles, giving a hint as to what might work for you. There are a few I want to check out. Anyone tried #Redbooth ? Sounds almost too good to be true!
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to productivity.

You're welcome! I find that a bit clunky, but otherwise, you can't be sure people are getting the notification.

Blue Canyon. The place the TV news crews like to use as a backdrop when it's snowing really hard in the winter. Sounds pretty damn good right about now.

OK, +George Station, I actually found a slightly larger image of this, due to your prompting. When searching at first, there was only one size: small. But I looked at the "visually similar" images and there was another. A few click-throughs later, I found it in a bigger size on a blog! No idea who owns this image. Likely they are fine with it being shared, since it's everywhere.

See what I'm saying about it being directly applicable? This is what our students need. They work hard thinking all day long. They often have the cognitive load of poverty, in addition to working and school and family. They need something they can do NOW. Often, they are their only cheerleaders. Dang, I am going to miss that job. I loved working with them on this mindset.

Our comments crossed in the ether (I posted this shortly before I saw yours about literally hating the Holmes image) but at least we both used the word design. I'd provide prompts like these if asked, but probably in a different format.
