Everyone thinks; it is our nature to do so. But much of our thinking, left to itself, is biased, distorted, partial, uninformed or down-right prejudiced. Yet the quality of our life and that of what we produce, make, or build depends precisely on the quality of our thought. Shoddy thinking is costly, both in money and in quality of life. Excellence in thought, however, must be systematically cultivated.
At some point in our lives, we’ve all practiced some counterproductive learning habits. We’ve sabotaged ourselves without realizing it, and found ourselves stuck. There have been failures we believe have defined our potential. We’ve obsessed over perfect solutions and singular pathways. In frustrated moments we’ve refused help from others, thinking acceptance means weakness. We’ve done this as teachers, students, friends, and parents.
These are not crimes; they’re part of what makes us human. Our counterproductive learning habits usually come from what we observe and hear. We pick things up as children from well-intentioned adults in our lives. In addition, the experiences of others constantly unfold right in front of us. We observe actively, and we remember.
Eventually we come to believe that what we see is how things are, and that it never changes. We know now that this doesn’t have to be the case. We know now that we can create our own experiences. Let’s make them good ones when it comes to learning.
Little Pork Chop is a supersimple web app which allows you to post to Twitter longer messages than the typical 140 characters, by intelligently splitting your communication into multiple, numbered tweets.
To use it, you simply go the Little Porkchop page, type in or paste your message without worrying about length, and, instantly, the app previews for you how it would split into multiple tweets. You make your adjustments and you are set to tweet.
A couple of nice additional touches include:
1) all of the following tweets after the first one in a sequence, are sent as replies to the first, so that the whole set can be read as a single thread,
2) the option to send tweets in reverse chronological order so that they will show up in the Twitter stream in the order you wrote them.
Very useful. Easy. Immediate. 9/10
Little Pork Chop is the work of love of Dave Winer.
This ad campaign revolves around “the two opposing parts of the brain that complement each other”: the left side, responsible for logic and analysis and the creative and intuitive right side. The message is that Mercedes Benz, like the brain, is a combination of opposites that together create technological innovation, breakthrough engineering, inspiring design and passion. It was created by Shalmor Avnon Amichay/Y&R Interactive, Tel Aviv for Mercedes Benz Israel.
The story says:
I am the left brain. I am a scientist. A mathematician. I love the familiar. I categorize. I am accurate. Linear. Analytical. Strategic. I am practical. Always in control. A master of words and language. Realistic. I calculate equations and play with numbers. I am order. I am logic. I know exactly who I am.
I am the right brain. I am creativity. A free spirit. I am passion. Yearning. Sensuality. I am the sound of roaring laughter. I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feet. I am movement. Vivid colors. I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas. I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel. I am everything I wanted to be.
We are witnessing a major shift in the role of supply chain managers. Businesses expect their supply chain and procurement specialists to be shaping business strategy, assessing global security and managing relationships which span across the world.
My spouse has a personal trainer who makes him perform all kinds of healthy practices. One week it's the lateral lift, another week it's the biceps curl. Yesterday the focus was on the bench press, but tomorrow it could be...
Many people wonder why some people are more successful than others, why they seem to manage everything easily and seem to reach goals faster than others. Why they not only master the daily routine but also master upcoming problems with ease.
These people seem to be able to orientate their mind to every situation. Like a good military leader who is able to function not only in safe times but also in times of crisis and combat. Such a person is able to adapt to any situation. Being able to be courageous and powerful, but also calm and reflective when needed.
This is only reached with the combination of two different minds: An open mind that stands for courage and working on things, but also a reflective mind that finds solutions in deep thinking and being calm.
Now you will ask: How can I learn to develop two different minds?

"Perhaps no other word has been as popular in higher education during the past few years as the term “flipped.” As a result, there is no shortage of ideas and opinions about flipped learning environments. Some faculty consider it another way to talk about student-centered learning. Others view flipped classrooms as an entirely new approach to teaching and learning. Still others see flipping as just another instructional fad that will eventually run its course."
