Getting annoyed

Euen Semple

One of the aims of mindfulness and practicing meditation is to get better at responding to things rather than reacting to them. To take calm, appropriate action when needed rather than to get bent out of shape because things aren't how we expect them to be. This isn't to say that you end up as some chilled out, passive, punch bag for the world.

Fear, and loss of control

Euen Semple

We love the idea that we have control over our lives and the world around us. A lot of work goes into maintaining this fiction. How much time and effort is spent in business attempting to convince ourselves that we know what is going to happen next and the reasons why? But do we? How many ten year, even five year, strategies come to pass as so confidently predicted? How many carefully spreadsheeted cashflow predictions turn out exactly as planned?

A foolish inconsistency

Clark Quinn

Here, a foolish in consistency is the hobgoblin of my little mind. While there are some learnings in here (for me and others), it’s really just getting stuff off my chest. Feel free to move along. This is just a lack of consistency that I suggest is unnecessary and ill-conceived.

" My first thought was always "That depends on whether we screwed up or not" It seemed such a stupid question that I struggled to take the rest of the survey seriously. But how often do we really think about whether our organisations are doing the right thing or not? And do we do anything about it if we feel that they aren't?

Nine Shift

A high school in Idaho is leading the way with a new grading policy. Of course the school board and school officials are meeting resistance from students and parents who have no idea about the research and evidence. But that's ok. Someone has to lead, to try, to fail before new grading finally wins for everyone in society. Here's the story. Rocky Mountain Principal Mike Hirano said the school already had the gears in motion to make these changes.

Foreign Planes Are Prohibited, but Foreign Trains Are Fine?

T ell me if I am wrong here. But my understanding is: -A foreign airline cannot fly from one U.S. city to another U.S. city. -A foreign train company can build and run passenger trains from one U.S. city to another U.S. city. .
