Write, and you could become influential, famous and fabulously wealthy. While that might happen, writing rarely pays off with any of those rewards. So why write? Peter has written more than a 1,000 articles. During that time he’s stumbled on a few secrets about writing that he was never taught in school. We learn by doing, so that might not be surprising. We also learn more about what we know by writing it down. In this session Peter will explore how to extract the most benefit possible from this solitary act.
All of us take notes. How we learned to do that, though, varies. Our approach has evolved over time, trying to keep up with our need to stay organized and on top of the world around us. Over the past few months, Mark has taken a deep dive into the world of note taking, researching what has revealed itself to be a deep and convoluted rabbit hole. If you strive for organization, this is a webinar that you won’t want to miss.
For the last nine years, we have been sharing our insights about the books that we have connected with, and that have connected with us, over the preceding year. It has become on of our favourite webinars, a sentiment shared by many of our fans. 2021 was a more challenging year than many. We are grateful to reach the end, and to share with you what inspired us along the way.
Naming something gives us power to it. Names add information, but they also constrict our understanding. Names are an abstraction that help and get in the way. If we want to see the world differently, we need to confront how what we call things shapes our perceptions.
Words have power. The words we choose have a great deal of influence on the meaning that we create, and the meaning that we hide. Mark Mullaly looks past labels to explore how they are used—and misused—and what we can to create better meaning.
What if I told you that all problems are illusory figments of our imagination, and all solutions are predetermined based on our perceptions? Weinberg/Gause offered this definition: “A problem is a difference between things as desired and things as perceived.” Join Peter as he delves into the implications of this perspective. That the problems we encounter depend entirely on things we control, what we desire and what we perceive. If you’re looking for an eclectic exploration a little further off the beaten path, this is it.
