KISS Part One
Have you ever had someone use the acronym KISS? It stands for Keep It Simple, Stupid. Since Envision Partners’ readers obviously aren’t stupid, (proof: you’re reading this aren’t you?!) we’re changing it to Keep It Simple, Silly. This week’s posts are a series of short, but impactful tidbits that will take a TINY amount of time to read, but have a HUGE effect.
Today, we have a recommendation for something else that is short but impactful. As a matter of fact, you can listen to this during your commute and get a jump-start to your personal development for the day!
TED Radio Hour on National Public Radio. This radio summary on NPR combines 3-5 TED talks on a related theme and provides deeper interviews with the presenters to add a different perspective. I am a regular listener because I like combing two or more ideas to form a third, and I get a preview of several TED Talks. One of my favorite shows took on four aspects of collaboration—the power of collaboration in such efforts as Wikipedia and Code for America; crowdsourcing to digitize books through millions of tiny combined efforts; why we choose to collaborate, and what happens when there is too much collaboration at work.
I enjoyed all of the full-length presentations. My new question is what motivates us to make LOLcat videos?
Watch for the second KISS post on Wednesday! That tip will help you set yourself up for a successful (and hopefully stress-free!) holiday season!
