Is it just me or is there a complete void when it comes to a user community for Xyleme? I can't find any learning resources. Most of my searches return results focused on marketing. I'm already using this tool. Anyone know where I can go when I need help?

A great flip on resolutions... look at what's not productive and stop doing it.

My Top 5 4 List
1. Responding like a trained monkey. I'm stealing this from Clark because it's amazing how easily I get sucked in. I like the 90 minute intervals and will definitely start off with that and maybe even push to 2 hours.

2. Cut down meetings. I work remotely so most of my meetings are phone calls. There are days that I pick up the phone at 7:30 am and it's attached to my ear for the next 12 hours. Not much really gets done on days like those.

3. List without action. I've been keeping a list of my ideas for months. I now have pages of possibilities, but I've not taken any action. It's not going to do me any good if I don't try to put any of them into action.

4. Get caught up in the moment. It's easy to swept away by the momentum of a moment, whether it's someone else's drama or a directive from upper management. Usually, with a little distance everything seems clearer, making progress and success more likely.

This might be the best gift idea ever!
Mike Elgan originally shared:
 
View-Master shows your pictures!

Remember the View-Master? Now, a company called Image3D lets you upload your own pictures, and they'll send custom View-Master reels to you in about a week.

If you upload 3D pictures, they'll appear in 3D in the viewer.

The first reel costs $22, and they get cheaper the more you order. For example, a set of 50 reels is $12.50 each and a set of 100 or more is $8 per reel.

For $25, they'll throw in a View-Master itself plus a gift box.

Kudos to LPI on this capability map. It's a thoughtful look at the skills required for workplace learning professionals. I recommend EVERY instructional designer, technologist, or other training professional take a look!
 
The UK-based Learning and Performance Institute (LPI) has today launched a Capability Map for the workplace learning sector. The map will provide a clear definition of skill sets applicable to workplace learning professionals and will have benefits for both individuals and recruiters. For individuals working within workplace learning, the map will provide a way to self assess skills across 9 categories, against 27 pre-defined skills. Users are th...

What I'm learning is that not all instructional designers are necessarily systems thinkers. For those individuals, the content management learning curve is steep. Any one know of any good, basic job aids or documentation to help bridge that gap?

Buying my house was practically a whim, so I'll never be accussed of overthinking something. Professionally, however, where there are more external pressures, I see paralysis by analysis a lot.

My goal is always to find the best solution for right now. I time box decisions, which helps provide additional parameters. I also like to sleep on it--maybe even over the weekend for big decisions. It's always while I'm shampooing my hair or brushing my teeth, that I seem to have a light bulb moment. So, I like to give that an opportunity to happen.

How do you make decisions?
