Wonderful share here via  @Kenneth Mikkelsen.  


I dared to dream a few years back and lately I am feeling like the character hanging from the tree limb who is about to fall and hanging on for dear life.  


I will continue with my strategy and hope I can hang on.

"At this point, the evidence suggests many of us remain suspicious of any firm that, say, allows its employees to play foosball or shoot hoops during work hours.

 

But our enduring cynicism may also have its roots in traditional beliefs about leadership effectiveness.

 

Many of us have been taught that it’s actually desirable to have some worker unhappiness. The idea is that keeping people under some constant tension actually is a more powerful driver of productivity.

 

There’s also the concern that when employees are cared for to any extent they’re likely to get soft in the middle--so sufficiently sated that motivation to work hard and produce is spoiled. "

 

Check out this article for evidence that suggests that our enduring cynicism  and thought patterns are wrong...

(From the article): According to a 1997 article in the San Francisco Chronicle, many business leaders dismissed Moskowitz’s earliest list of “Best Places To Work” and derided it as being “a ’beauty contest’ that didn’t matter to anyone outside of corporate personnel departments.” But Moskowitz, and soon after, Dodson, have gone on to prove that the leaders at organizations which ensure employees feel valued, supported, developed, and rewarded are the most enlightened. They inspire a greatly expanded bottom line and set an example for all to follow in this 21st century.

10 Ways 3D Printing Can Be Used In Education | Knowledge Broker | Scoop.it

A 3D printer works by “printing” objects–but instead of using ink, it uses more substantive materials–plastics, metal, rubber, and the like. It scans an object–or takes an existing scan of an object–and slices it into layers it can then convert into a physical object.
