From Tim Sanders: Back in 1999, Marcus shared his secret over a mentoring lunch with me in Dallas. "When I need to take time back, I give it away to help young people like you," Marcus said between bites. The point of his message was lost on me. "When you invest time in teaching and sharing, in many cases you'll see profound results quickly. That'll motivate you to find more time to invest." · Go to The Stanley Marcus Jr. system of time management →

From Garr Reynolds at Presentation Zen: Good teachers are like sculptors. They subtract to reveal what is already there. Bruce Lee once said: "It's not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential." This is one of the secrets to mastery, yet much of our work lives or school lives are spent on the unessential. Good teachers and good presenters — indeed, good leaders in general — work hard themselves to "hack away at the unessential" to create environments which foster natural engagement, encourage participation and exploration, and in the end lead to simplicity, clarity, and meaning. · Go to The need for participation, compassion, & community in the classroom (and lecture hall) →
