Ten Simple Rules for Lifelong Learning, According to Hamming

Rule 1. Cultivate Lifelong Learning as a “Style of Thinking” That Concentrates on Fundamental Principles Rather Than on Facts
Rule 2. Structure Your Learning to Ride the Information Tsunami Rather Than Drown in It
Rule 3. Be Prepared to Compete and Interact with a Greater and More Rapidly Increasing Number of Scientists Than at Any Time in the Past
Rule 4. Focus on the Future but Don’t Ignore the Past
Rule 5. Look for the Personal Angle
Rule 6. Learn from the Successes of Others
Rule 7. Use Trial and Error to Find the Style of Learning That Suits You
Rule 8. No Matter How Much Advice You Get and How Much Talent You Possess, It Is Still You Who Must Do the Learning and Put in the Time
Rule 9. Have a Vision to Give You a General Direction
Rule 10. Make Your Life Count: Struggle for Excellence

Concept mapping, mind mapping and argument mapping: what are the differences and do they matter?

... However, as this paper will demonstrate, there are clear differences in
each of these mapping tools. This paper offers an outline of the various types of tool available and their advantages and disadvantages. It argues that the choice of mapping tool largely depends on the purpose or aim for which the tool is used and that the tools may well be  onverging to offer educators as yet unrealised and potentially complementary functions....

Use The Springpad Task Notebook To Manage Your Life

Use The Springpad Task Notebook To Manage Your Life | Personal Productivity | Scoop.it

Managing your to-dos is no easy task. You start with a few items and before you know it, you’ve got a long list that you know you can’t (and don’t need to) accomplish in one day. Not to mention that these to-dos span more than one area of your life: some are home related (grocery shopping, cleaning, etc), some are related to your kids (pick-up dance costume, plan birthday party), while others relate to you (pick up dry cleaning) and your work (schedule meeting, finish presentation). 

There’s just so much! And you don’t want to spend all your time figuring out when you’re going to do it all – you just want to get started. After all, what lies at the end of that list is free time, friend time, YOU time! At Springpad, we understand that you want to manage your to-dos – not the other way around. So, we created the Tasks notebook to help you take control of things you need to do and get them done faster.

Useful as a coaching tool.

donhornsby's curator insight, October 25, 2013 7:07 AM

The best decision makers let the situation guide them. The more experience you have with a particular type of decision, the safer it is to go with your intuition, since your subconscious has a wealth of reliable information from which to draw. A professional decorator would have a good instinctive sense of which colors work best for a room, for instance, but if you're a novice like me, it's good to think more analytically.
