turns out I'm not the only one saying this.
A great article was just published in the New York Times that gets into the brain physiology that backs up what I advise. Janet Rae-Dupree has the byline and she interviews authors Dawna Markova and business colleague and fellow author M.J. Ryan. Markova wrote "The Open Mind" and Ryan wrote "This Year I Will..." -- both of which are going on my Amazon order list today (so much to read, so little time...). Markova/Ryan make some incisive remarks about USA education, standardized testing, and new habits.
Turns out new habits help you lose weight -- something I didn't know, but I'm betting my new habit of drinking porter style beer doesn't count. Still, I can try.
The article closes with a wonderful quote by Markova "You cannot have innovation unless you are willing and able to move through the unknown and go from curiosity to wonder." Well said Ms. Markova, let me add, AND "take your wonderment, generate some ideas, and get into action."
