How to raise a child who listens well | BabyCenter


Being a good listener is critical to your child’s success at school. If he can’t follow directions, whether on the playground (“Pick a partner and pass the ball back and forth across the field”) or in the classroom (“Take out a number 2 pencil and open your test booklets to page 1”) — he’ll have a tough time learning.

7 Resources for Handling Digital Life After Death


Death is a fact of life. When someone dies, they’re no longer physically here, but their digital self lives on. There are more than 5 million accounts on Facebook that are inactive due to death, according to the calculations of BlackBook Media’s Executive Editor Chris Mohney. And that’s just Facebook.

But for others, the thought of leaving digital assets unattended for eternity after death is unthinkable. Luckily, there are a number of services that allow you to delete, update, or transfer account information after you — or someone you care about — is gone.

The future is not in learning…


The future is in how fast you are at unlearning. Dave’s PDF on the Lifecycle of Rules got me thinking more about this. Yes, we’re under pressure to learn more and to learn quickly, but the future goes to those who can unlearn faster than the rest, because you can’t always learn something new until you first let go of something else. And learning to let go of rules is one of the first things we (and our managers) have to learn to be quicker at.
