1/ "On his hands and knees he waits. He imagines soft voices and smiles. The slam of a car boot startles him; his eyes burst open, wide, light pours in, his body assesses for signs of an attack. The gate swings open, four small wheels roll along the path; a deafening war cry." Image
2/ It is @ChildlessWeek in September & I have contributed to it over the past couple of years. By sharing my experiences I have found connection, I have been heard & found a sense of belonging. The process of creating stories & art, has been helpful in my healing & acceptance.
3/ I recommend submitting your experiences, they can be anonymous - the more our voices are heard, the less invisible we become, not only to others, but also ourselves.

The above is an extract from Dancing under rainbows - the agony of not being able to have a child,

The #Universe is neither sphere nor flat. It's a #torus. Therefore, there is no up, down, right, or left in our universe.
When you stretch forth your hands into the #future, why do they reach the #past?

There is no time. There is only "Eternal Here&Now"

What NASA recently discovered was not a #Paralleluniverse, but a previous cosmic cycle. There, time seems to roll back.

At the end of our current reality is the "#EventHorizon" at the heart of the double torus.
This is the dawning of the #AgeOfAquarius.

Time is just an illusion.

The second law of thermodynamics is wrong.

What we know as #gravity is just our imagination.

NASA is also hiding #PlasmaCosmology.

All creation is "in the right direction" through the torus universe.

This arrived today. The book is an attempt to present a historically-embedded account of western childhood and how the co-constitutive logics of capital and motherhood have shaped its modern understanding. @VSLIIMA

#childhood #education #motherhood Image
"Situated at the confluence of children's nature and childhood's nurture, mothers are those who most often held personally responsible for navigating the dense undergrowth of competing and confusing narratives and expectations of childhood." #childhood
"Three elements- childhood's pliability, maternal accountability for children and children's subjecthood- entangle and tussle with one another in a variety of ways to produce a 'moral architecture' of childhood."

#creativity tip
Break knowledge into the parts that make it up. Aim for 100 or more, from rocks to food to cells to stars. Learn something about each. Anything.
When thinking of new uses for objects, go through every part in turn & come up with at least 1 answer for that area
As a start, follow the #100daysofknowledge posts and it will give you a good foundation
You can list each area, draw them into a map, make them into a work of art, sew them onto a scarf, print them on a t-shirt, anything that will help you remember them but leave the door open for always adding

Data surfaced by LinkedIn from 20+ million jobs revealed the 15 most in-demand soft & hard skills. The study looked at the skills that are in highest demand (based on hiring rate) relative to the supply of people who have those skills.
The top 5 most in-demand soft skills are:

#1 #Creativity

Connecting dots—that are seemingly unrelated—to generate original, useful solutions is an incredibly valuable skill in every employee, regardless of what industry or country you’re doing business in.
#2 #Persuasion

Persuasion is convincing others to buy into your idea or a different way of doing things to build consensus or make a decision. It’s one of the most powerful communication skills for all employees to have in their skillset.

Over the past few weeks of #covid19 confinement - or #shelteringinplace as they say in the US - we have been able to witness (and sometimes support) a number of organizations in their move to #remotework
We believe our experience with implementing #NWoW - #futureofwork in North America - is a helpful lens in seeing both the challenges and changes organizations face when switching to #remotework... some observations:
Organizations that are technologically well-equipped for #remotework before #covid19 were obviously advantaged, but... it was much easier for organizations that were already culturally fit/ready! #orgculture

#MerchantsofInstamojo

If you are looking for vibrant, symmetrical, larger than life artwork, head to Annada Menon's Instamojo online store.
The 27-year-old artist from Pune picked up the brush at a very young age, and there was no turning back since.

(1/3)
#MondayMotivation
Annada creates alluring art and to make it useful for her customers, she creates them on objects of utility, like coasters and notebooks. She also customizes her #art for customers, while keeping her artistic individuality alive!

(2/3)
#Womenpreneurs #entrerpreneurs
She uses Instamojo to collect payments in bulk from her customers for large orders, and needless to say, we played a small role in helping Annada keep her #creativity alive whilst running a full-time #business.

Let’s talk about #contentmarketing.

We all know that content is king right? Have the right content and eventually you will be successful is something that I think a lot of people have taken to heart.

If you are a small to mid sized business owner the idea that you can just
#create amazing content that will drive more customers to your #business right off the bat, Is a pipe dream. It is a very easy trap to fall into and one that can become a killer of time and profit. I tend to reference @garyvee a lot in my recent tweets as he is kind of a wiz with
Content marketing online. He knows how and what drives engagement. He also has a #mediafirm backing up everything he produces, making it easier to release the various pieces of #content that is produced. If you are not in the media business, this really isn’t possible.

Rant incoming.

Anyone can do #marketing.

This is a true statement. Anyone can do marketing. Other true statements.

Anyone can cook.
Anyone can draw.
Anyone can plumb a bathroom.

But would you rather spend the time learning to do it properly or pay someone who knows what
they are doing so you can concentrate on what you know how to do best?

#marketing is a skill that a lot of people claim to have but few people actually master. Most of marketing is actually planning. I find more actual marketers are project managing campaigns than they are
rather than posting things to social media.

#marketing is not selling, but it does touch on some of the same skills. A good marketer will show your product or service in a way that gets people interested, making the job of your sales team that much easier.

Any can make a sale.

🧵Thread on some rather obscure quotes from Alex F. Osborn classic. #Brainstorming turns 80 and there are too many misconceptions and plainly inaccuracies about this technique.

Here we go...
"In any idea finding effort, the first step is to get set, to establish a "working mood". There are ways to pull ourselves up by our bootstrap, and highly #creative people consciously use these ways"

(Idea finding, interesting choice of verb)
To evaluate ideas "we should enlist the judgment of others. The surest method of evaluation is to put our ideas to test. And the task of thinking up the best way to test is a creative challenge in itself"

(Evaluation = creative task)

On defining #creativity @rexjung :

Distinct from #intelligence – a superhighway; #creativity as a slow meandering process down dirt road / side road

Must be both #novel and @useful – beyond simple #utility – something #new within a social context. Unexpected links ✨🤓✨

The capacity to compartmentalize may be an overlooked important psychological construct with positive implications for subjective #wellbeing #ThursdayThoughts
It may be related to the capacity for #play, one of the most under-appreciated activities to enhance subjective #happiness & adaptation.

What are you reading over the holidays? I'm reading 'A Man of Misconceptions: the Life of an Eccentric in an Age of Change' by John Glassie. The eccentric being Athanasius Kircher, 17th century priest and scientist.
Did you know that the book Galileo published his telescopic observations in was called 'Starry Messenger'?
"For (17th century scholar) Pico, magic was 'the practical part of natural science,' and also the 'noblest part.'" ~ from 'A Man of Misconceptions' by John Glassie
