Cherishing Found Time
Hurricane Irene is changing my plans. I tend to book myself fairly tightly so when something like this happens, I end up with "found" time. I love this extra time regardless of how I choose to spend it.
Those of you who know me well, know I tend to be productivity focused but I also sometimes choose to use time for recharging (read recreation/socializing etc.)
In my younger years, I would have been highly stressed at a time like this. Now I am not only calm but thankful.
So part of the key for me is to find a creative oasis regardless of where I physically am.
Hatsize was praised by 451Group on their good execution in the cloud.
Some people suffer from distraction when they are on a computer. There is a Google Chrome plugin that allows users to self blog to stay focused.
Loved the site - Humility Imperative. Leaders need more humility. I invest in humble people.
One way I research challenges is by reading every book I can lay my hands on about a topic. Getabstract stole this idea (OK more likely they thought of it at the same time) and brought out the concept of knowledge packs - abstracts around any specific topic. Genius idea.
