Curious Kids: Smiling Is Happiness And Love

When I am mulling over a topic – like I have been about smiling – I often ask the kids for their perspective. Sometimes some genius insight, always delight.

Curious Kids: How To Get Papa Interested In Dog Poop

Lola won some playdough at school yesterday. Her first project: a dog taking a poop. Very refined. First she wanted a photo of it and I obliged, grudgingly. There is a bit too much poop conversation in my house, frankly. Then: “One of those 6-second video Papa!” A Vine video, eh? Suddenly, I’m intrigued! A Vine video needs action, not a 6-second photo, so we caught the dog in action. A satisfying result all round.

The Future Of Work In Action – For 6 Seconds

I took a week off work to do a deeper dive into all my notes and half-baked thoughts that have so far surfaced the TMWK model, but not explained it. it is harder than I thought – so many strands, loose ends, interesting snippets, but uncertainty how to stitch it all together (notwithstanding I put together the TMWK Manifesto…). Synthesis and distillation are key process flows / skills in times of information overload. If it is not simple and evocative (aka F.R.E.S.H.) then it won’t work for me. This Much We Know hard at work in Arizona while family is … Continue reading The Future Of Work In Action – For 6 Seconds
