Coloring Outside the Lines
Coloring Outside the Lines: Business Thoughts on Creativity, Marketing, and Sales - Made for Success,Jeff Tobe

I listened to the audio book and it was read by the author and Tobe should have hired someone to read this book for him.

 

The book sounds like it was written and read in the early 1990's though Tobe does have his own domain e-mail.

 

The book does have a few funny stories though I cannot recommend this book.

Professor of Something: "Learn Better" by Ulrich Boser
Learn Better: Mastering the Skills for Success in Life, Business, and School, or, How to Become an Expert in Just About Anything - Ulrich Boser

“The act of writing is a good example of metacognition because when we think about composing sentences and paragraphs, we’re often asking ourselves crucial metacognitive questions: Who will be reading this? Will they understand me? What things do I need to explain? This is why writing is often such an effective way to organize one’s thoughts. It forces us to evaluate our arguments and think about ideas. […] some describe writing as a form of “applied metacognition”.

 

In “Learn Better” by Ulrich Boser

 

 

When I was a kid, we played football (the European version; I hate the word soccer) all day and must have been well over 10K hours. None of us got near even semi pro football. My son could do sprint training for 4 hours every night but he's not going to be Usain Bolt. There are thousands of musicians who have put in the practice but they're all on the 9 to 5 as well like myself (well, I’m more on the 08:30 to no-end-in-sight schedule, bit that’s just me being my usual obnoxious self…). Are we supposed to believe a la Gladwell that if we put in 10K hours we’ll become experts at something? I don’t believe this number, and neither does Boser. I think it’s just a number which Gladwell thought would look good in one of his books (I forget which).

 

What about thinking about learning? Is there something there?

 

 

 

If you're into stuff like this, read on.

Who spends their days white-knighting Ivanka Trump?
Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success - Ivanka Trump

I posted a "review" of this nonsense on GR (and I suppose that reposting it here is probably a good idea, since it is possible that GR could delete it as violating their reviews must be about the book not the author "rule").

 

This is really nothing more than my unedited ramblings that someone like Ivanka Trump had the temerity to publish a book called "Rewriting the Rules for Success."

Honey, you didn't "rewrite" anything. In order to need to rewrite the rules for success, that would imply that some sort of rules actually applied to you. Au contraire - you've never been subject to "rules" in your entire life. A better title for this book would be "Billionaire Daughters Who Benefit: Suspending, Evading and Transcending The Rules Via Nepotism, Entitlement and Privilege."

There can be nothing that this woman could possibly say that would be relevant to anyone other than herself, or possibly the other gilded daughters born of platinum vaginas into unimaginable privilege.


It's genuinely hard to be a woman who works. Hell, it's hard to be a person who works. Our society isn't great at supporting families. Ivanka Trump's despicable father and the rest of the Republican leadership is trying to make this worse. That makes the publication of this book an even greater affront to women who work. And women who don't work. And men. Human beings, actually.

Ivanka Trump is the diet coke member of the Trump family - she's sparkly, full of fake sugar and empty calories and is attractively packaged. Fundamentally, though, she is entirely substance free.

 

And now I have some useful idiot claiming that I've personally diminished the integrity of the site, and am not participating properly. Lol.

 

 

WTF.

I’m going to use his idea about vision journals. I loved it. I liked the authors approach to the whole journal concept, and how he created a relationship between journaling and his software platform.
