Comments11/05/2017 #19 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMA"Business", said Tom Peters, "Is about people. It's about passion. It's about bold ideas, bold small ideas, or about bold large ideas." I have an Ideas Journal to jot them down as they come to me. I regularly refer to it for additional inspiration. And while an idea may not be viable, at the moment, it could be in the near future. I say don't discard an idea regardless how odd it may seem. I can remember sitting on a beach at 11 years old, sharing a bag of chips with my sister and thinking wouldn't it be great if there was something to keep the bag closed when you've eaten your share and began chatting about it with family. I came up the idea to use paper clips. Et Voila! Not too many years later the 'Chip Clip' was invented. Proving, that even the oddest ideas can be used effectively. Thanks for another interesting article, Ali. As always you make us think.11/05/2017 #18 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#17 I am glad you cleaned your cupboard @Paul Walters and revived a long-forgotten idea. @Gert Scholtz wrote a beautiful buzz on his experiences waiting for the publisher to publish his first book. Valuable things show their value by keeping us waiting for hem.11/05/2017 #17 Paul Walters@Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee Wasting time is for me right up there with sloth and procrastination. However during my time wasting phase I cleared out a long forgotten cupboard and found an idea from 10 years ago. An idea for a book. That book is now a trilogy and two more followed. I am now wasting time writing the next one. Would you be so kind as to write to the publishers and tell them that I have a cold and they should get their promised manuscript soon...well maybe not soon but sometime10/05/2017 #15 Yogesh SukalThank you for informative @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee the ideas which seems not tobe useful may inspire some solution to entirely different problem.
as Einstein proposed general relativity as four dimensional space-time fabric.
extension of same to fifth dimension, Kaluza–Klein theory (KK theory) is a unified field theory of gravitation and electromagnetism built around the idea of a fifth dimension beyond the usual four of space and time. It is considered to be an important precursor to string theory.
and many physicist lost faith and questioning string theory, but in that case these new cases may be ideas for futuristic problem which we are not able to percieve now.10/05/2017 #13 Gert Scholtz@Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee An example of turning a “waste” idea into a valuable one is happening close to me at the moment. A person I know realized that with the rise in coffee shops and coffee consumption, a big amount of ground and filtered coffee is thrown away every day. If the coffee waste is collected, it could be used in the form of coals or brickets to fire up stoves and fireplaces this coming winter. It would help the recycling of waste and save trees usually used for firewood. If this will be viable and will work still remains to be seen…. I thought an interesting way of turning what is literally a “waste” idea into something beneficial.10/05/2017 #12 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#11 You left no mask dear @Sara Jacobovici hiding the reality. Yes, the mask of pre-determining the value of an idea or whatever. Instead of enhancing the value of an idea we tend to have misconception and reject the opportunity for a breakthrough. Your comment resonates very strongly with me.10/05/2017 #11 Sara JacoboviciYou are forcing us to look at our behaviours in a very honest manner @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. We waste time, energy, ideas, relationships, as a result of losing sight; we don't see the value because it is masked by what we have already decided has value. If the two, our expectation and what is taking place, do not fit, then we "trash" it without any hesitation. The individual who is open to seeing the idea for what it is and can be, does what the CEO in your example did Dr. Ali, works the idea from the inside out; finds the fit and enhances the idea's value. Another thing that is often painfully wasted as a result of this tunnel vision, is potential. When an idea or person is not given the opportunity to thrive, not only is its worth in the moment wasted, but its potential for the future.10/05/2017 #10 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#9 You flow with wisdom @Harvey Lloyd. You go with the flow of wisdom. "The main lesson, be present in the moment you find yourself". Also, "but we find opportunity and wisdom by being present".
What Could I say? Your wisdom overwhelms me, Harvey.10/05/2017 #9 Harvey LloydTime can be seen from two contexts, a measurement instrument that we use to tell if we are ahead or behind; Or, a river in which we exist on. If we see time as a measurement then we can only measure it in the sense of not enough or plenty.
Seeing time as a river of ever changing opportunities, is a teacher of wisdom. The main lesson, be present in the moment you find yourself.
Consider the fact that if humans didn't exist is time a factor? We created time so that we might understand and measure our world and identify cycles of action. Unfortunately we have also adopted time as a performance indicator within our own intrinsic value. Its part of the equation. When we extricate time from our equation we still set the alarm, attend appointments on time, but we find opportunity and wisdom by being present.
Your post describes the opportunity that was produced as one looked at their existence within time, they were present at the moment the idea birthed.
It's not what you do with time that is important, it's is who you are within it that influences you and those around you.10/05/2017 #7 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#6 It is up to creative minds to find a novel use. Sticky notes was invented to glue cartoon boxes, but it failed the tests. The creative question was in whiich area mild stickiness would be needed? This question lead to sticky notes as one of the most successful commercial applications.10/05/2017 #6 siraj shaik#5 There's nothing goes as "wastes", only thing is the way it's considered. If it's not recyclable it goes as refuse and used as some form. The rejects goes to dumping grounds, either 1- the pits used to fill up (later for serving different purpose) or 2- space provided to collect (where it's sorted processed in segments or left for decay to serve for specific). If one couldn't accomplish, other does it (if the focus is only for returns, it may vary. Else the end source is executed achieving the results. More of the measurable returns comparatives except for resource claimers other all will be same). And the cycle goes on.10/05/2017 #5 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#4 I think our tendency to have a low perspective of wastes is a core problem @siraj shaik. Calling them wastes negatively affects their potential.These wastes have treasures in them and they are awaiting a sharp mind to utilize them. Yes, the factors that you outlined are all important, but I also think we need to upgrade our perspective. Your solar panel example is spot on. I just wonder how it differed from conventional ones.10/05/2017 #4 siraj shaik#1 Informative subject matter well expressed and carries great points to ponder. Just sharing an experience from past - In 1993 tried to start a small unit "solar panel's" under SSI (small scale industries) which can open some employment opportunities and promoting energy efficient methodologies. I don't carry designations nor big status neither riches. It was tough just to get a submission form. In and out of office seeing the concern person with basic info documented file. Since few years it's a big talk of town across about "new tech ways using solar panels (as an alternative efficient energy source), because the talk is delivered by peers and investors doesn't hesitate as well as the policies become flexible to establish. @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee sir If focused onto @debasish majumder comment the factors carry lots of effects and affects that pertains to "Ideas Wastes" (1- Conditions 2- Favourable 3- Potentials 4- Transformation 5- History).10/05/2017 #2 debasish majumdercyanobacteria produced excess Oxygen as waste and an Oxygen catastrophe experienced by the early atmospheric conditions, favorable for life eventually to evolve. so, i guess, waste in any form having the potentials to eventually transformed into either convenience or harmful, depending about the external conditions, such as temperature, heat etc. in accordance to the available situation the waste could be used and that also being determined by the law of history we derive from the past, whether it will be relevant or not. however, wonderful insight sir @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee! enjoyed read and shared. thank you for such lovely share sir.

The proposed budget cuts to all branches of research in the US are being decimated (NIH, NSF, CDC, etc.)...its kind of sickening...what is going on in this ...well it used to be that the ellipsis would be followed by: "This Great Nation".19/04/2017 #27 Gerald Hecht#25 @Melissa Hefferman Hey Melissa...you ALWAYS make me think! I wish you'd do it more often...I'll let you know if I fall and don't have the number for niner-one-one...or if I don't have one of those "thingies" that are marketed to folks like me who tend to not have one of "those thingies" when they fall!19/04/2017 #26 Gerald Hecht#24 @Devesh 🐝 Bhatt Its a REAL lot to think about ...isn't it (especially the more ya think about it)...its hard enough to think about what to make to for dinner!
I remember having points taken off of an English Composition Exam for ending a sentence with a "split infinitive"; all I could think was: "That is something I won't put up with."19/04/2017 #25 Anonymous#22 well, you certainly always make me think, thinking is good. I'm such an idealist, even if The World's not, whatdoyado. I'm learning to shut up more, that's hard for me, I like to converse, I suppose my issue is finding more people who do too, without the spitting. I am now reminding myself not to spit. ;-)19/04/2017 #24 Devesh 🐝 Bhatt#21 legally and logically it is an undeniable statement. It is apt for the Constitution and a basis for seeking justice.
I think i asked a basic question question. Bit more than anyone can chew including me :)
Its really really hard to find the right answer for this, even Gandhi in his Experiments with Truth had to really explore through life changing experiences.
The Framers of the Constitution had life changing experiences.
Maybe such people develop a better perspective.
I think i was just curious and careless. Lot to think about.19/04/2017 #23 Gerald Hecht#15 @Harvey Lloyd oh; well that's continually occurring isn't it; hasn't it always...there is a curator for Merriam-Webster's Dictionary who has a new book out called "The Secret Life of Dictionaries"...I can't think of her name now...I think that it is in the preface that she writes: "American English is the biggest whore of any human language...it takes something from every language it sleeps with, and its slept with them all...and always will." While no expert in American English...sorry, I'm not in a "self-defense thingie"...I meant that "AS AN EXPERT IN AMERICAN ENGLISH"... I advise all humans to make the effort to become comfortable with it...a transcendentally awesome time is guaranteed!!! Keeps you in shape to...it changes faster than Cher or Mick or Beyonce or Lady Gaga, etc...19/04/2017 #22 Gerald Hecht#20 @Melissa Hefferman Yeah, you know in my experience, true experts rarely (if ever) in doing their "expert thing"...i.e., I would not expect an "expert liar" to tell the truth...I would not expect an expert brain surgeon to do a "false procedure"...I don't expect "expert "satirical, social commentary type" comedians to tell jokes. I do however expect chameleons and cuddlefish to change colors as a means of self defense, I expect spitting cobras to spit poison for the same reason, I expect human beings to lie frequently in the course of their daily affairs --also for the same reason.
I suspect that whether it be chameleons, cuddlefish, or humans...an inability to perform these "thingies" would be (as experts in behavior put it)..."bad" and would produce "undesirable results" with regard to the whole "self-defense thingie"
A number of great artists (working in a variety of media) have been credited with having "come up with" the following quote: "Mediocre Artists Borrow, or Make Allusions To The Works of Others...Great Artists, On The Other Hand...Steal.'
Many people are fascinated with this statement, some people are very focused on historical accuracy --making tremendous efforts to trace the true origins of the statement.
Overwhelmingly, artists who (while already acclaimed) make the statement...experience a maintenance/increase in their perceived expertise...publicly making the statement.
I don't know, I remember that for a brief time, during my first semester of college, I had a group of friends who didn't like my style of guitar playing, piano playing, cross harp style of harmonica playing, singing...so I did something about it...it required considerable effort --but I felt that I had to do it...and I did! I got new friends!19/04/2017 #21 Gerald Hecht#19 @Devesh 🐝 Bhatt I can only speak for myself on this...and I agree with you --why would something that is self evident require any elaboration...I can't see how it would --I am also unclear as to how one would add "faux/filler elaboration" to bring the document up to some "agreed upon length" or something.
I wasn't present in Philadelphia when the framers were drafting the original documents...I do have empirical evidence attesting to the expertise in the relevant topics by at least two of those guys; 1) Ben Franklin, 2) Thomas Jefferson...apparently it was their intent to frame (hence "framers", I guess) from an "apriori stDarting point" in which the aforementioned truths were self-evident and then "frame" (or let flow from that) the subsequent logical statements. There really is no other way to make a logical argument of any kind...most people, if attempting to do so, end up producing really awful "poetry" and/or really interesting "word salad" (used here in the Psychiatric sense) --a hallmark symptom in arriving at a differential Dx of some variety of florid psychosis.
When it comes to the quality of writing in documents like 1) the "Declaration of Independence" or Abraham Lincoln's reminder of why it was written (along with the document resulting from the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia) some "4 score and 7 years ago" from his delivery of 2) the" Gettysburg Address" on the battlefield of the same name during the American Civil War...you and I both should live to be "so guilty" and to have such "bad habits".
On the other hand, as stated earlier, I was absent from the proceedings --for all I know they in fact did "perceive those truths to be self evident".19/04/2017 #20 AnonymousI'm a fool and know this so yay good for me! I can play piano, which has about as much utility as everything being about American politics/history. Did the rest of history disappear? Just kidding. Really though, I likely rarely understand you though I do perceive you a rare expert in your discipline so I ask you, why do we rarely say what we mean and mean what we say? Innuendos seem to birth many of the pointless arguments in Life. I believe there are experts, and they can teach, they can help, let's try that. And I did read Nichols article, it surely held some truth, some comments seemed to exemplify this, and so I sigh and say, what's the point? Let's learn and do better. No?19/04/2017 #18 Gerald Hecht#7 @Michael O' Neil There is a neurological test called the "mirror tracing thingie" (or something like that, lol)...perhaps the old analog versions are by now updated with apps or studying different knot techniques on You Tube ...I already know one person who failed...FWIW...I've shaved in the shower without a mirror (by feel) for as long as I can remember...decades....I know my face as well as a blind date who is visually impaired.19/04/2017 #17 Gerald Hecht#6 @Ian Weinberg Well, in all seriousness...I suspect you favor a drop stitch when closing the separate layers of dura/pater mater...subarachnoid incisions...let alone violations of sinus/ventricle integrity...I once had a student who swore they knew the technique from having watched it numerous times on a You Tube Video... it was "only" a rhesus monkey...but at least it was alive when I offered him my rejoinder..."okay its all yours"...left the "theater", scrubbed out...and met some mates at the "Deacons"...

You could very well be preserving the true spirit of this area of human endeavor, which would (I've no doubt) be lost to future generations....however few there may be....if they are not following your posts on the subject.19/04/2017 #15 Harvey Lloyd#14 I was really referring to the belief system for humanity at that time was meaningfully or inadvertently included by reference Honesty and integrity are subject to definition. When written they were defined by the belief systems of the age. The systems have now become subverted from the original.
I would not even venture to define this two words in today's culture.19/04/2017 #14 Gerald Hecht#12 @Harvey Lloyd Are you referring to the fact that they were "Deists" (in the original sense of the term (as opposed to the "Time Magazine Brand's" notorious "Is God Dead? Issue"... I think that makes the "Second Sentence of the Declaration of Independence Brand" even more honest, and possessive of even more integrity...the ideal of continual improvement via the wording in the Constitution/Amendments thereto...at their best --do nothing but improve on this, i.e., replacing the word "people" for the word "men"...etc.
To the extent that this endeavor be subverted...the "Framework for the rule of law brand" will have to be removed from my list for having become a brand that is no longer possessive of honesty and integrity.19/04/2017 #13 Gerald Hecht#10 @Gert Scholtz You have hereby been added to my (sadly short) list of honest people --honest with a deep sense of integrity. I don't care about any other brand categories...I saw to today --several times and on both conventional and SM legitimate journalists and their publishers...that the monetary value of the Ivanka Trump brand has increased tremendously over the past several weeks...interestingly she is a part of the current Executive Branch (Presidential) Administration...she works for the Chief Executive/Commander-in-Chief of the United States of America...has an office in the West Wing of the White House...and still has the time and energy to apply her expertise to the quality of her shoes/jewelry/fashion accessories....her name is not in my list.17/04/2017 #12 Harvey Lloyd"...that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Not to get spiritual, but the writers wrote from a standard of belief that is incorporated and limiting the rights to that belief.
In post modern society we no longer have the belief as it was written so equal now means something else. And is described by the individual.
Good stuff. I enjoyed.17/04/2017 #10 Gert Scholtz@Gerald Hecht Certainly when it comes to the medical profession I would seek out expert advice, and not only one expert but a few. But you know that already because of the valuable advice you have given me. Of myself I can only say I am an expert at not being an expert :). Thanks Gerald.

Comments06/03/2017 #52 Laura Mikolaitis"If thoughts are negative and they become a little bit more negative everyday then something damaging might become catastrophically damaging in the future." - Excellent connection, @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee View more"If thoughts are negative and they become a little bit more negative everyday then something damaging might become catastrophically damaging in the future." - Excellent connection, @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. This is an insightful post and offers a good dose of perspective that can be applied to the many tiers of life. Having found myself in the pool of negativity, I can attest to the ill effects of constantly swimming in its waters. Sometimes swimming against the tide can be exhausting and it may mean finding new ways to get to the other side. The same with our thoughts. If we continually think negative thoughts, then our actions and effects thereof may also be negative. But when we dip our toes into a new body of water and start to feel the positive effects of doing so, then we can slowly swim more comfortably and explore new shores.
Time doesn't wait for us, that is for sure. And even the best-laid plans aren't always on solid footing. We have the ability to change and hopefully the self-awareness to be able to recognize when the tides of change are necessary. It can be a slow and arduous process, but like you've said "Remember what is small today and manageable could become huge and very impacting tomorrow. Don't wait for the tide of time to drown you." How true. Excellent insight, Ali. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and Deming's Funnel experience - very interesting. Close25/02/2017 #49 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#47 @Paul Walters- very interesting idea- we may live the moment, but crowd our future. We see same thing happening everywhere. We may live the moment, but crowd our future. Yes, we may spend all our earnings today, but then we shall have our future crowded with demands that we can't meet. WOW! I feel this ideas can be expanded on a lot.25/02/2017 #48 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#46 @Cyndi wilkins- so, based on your comment the supply and demand of time define the price of time. This is a special case as the supply of time is only 24 hours a day. So, demand increases and supply decreases from a fixed amount. THis is similar case to land. The supply of land is mostly constant (we may fill sea water to make more land) and the demand is always increasing. The result is bursting of land prices in many countries.25/02/2017 #47 Paul Walters@Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee Once again a gem of a piece! After living on a tropical island for the last five years I discovered something from the Balinese. They live not for today but for the moment!!! Their philosophy is that , yesterday is gone and tomorrow is a mystery so live for the moment. All well and good and a philosophy I truly admire but perhaps the town planners should abandon this practise as with the increasing amount of traffic on the roads there is not a lot of 'forward planning' Oh well I guess we cant have it all!24/02/2017 #45 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#44 Great observations are there in your comment. I loved the way you dear @John Rylance described the mirrors as possibilities of problems may attack us from all directions and the need to keep the mirrors clean. Yes, time doesn't move linearly if we consider it as a river.24/02/2017 #44 John RylanceTides ebb and flow, there are high and low tides, for this reason it might be a mistake to assume the tide of time is a constant forward movement. The flotsam and jetsam of life can stay with us, it may go never to return, or we may need to ensure we deal with it successfully if it does return. To pick up on your analogy of car mirrors, we need them all, problems or good things can come at us from any angle, so we need to see in all directions, so that we can embrace or reject them accordingly.
Yes we can't go back in time, but we can (with rear mirrors) stop the past catching up with us.24/02/2017 #43 Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#42 @Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMA- your quote of the profound comment of Abraham Lincoln is spot on. It says a lot. Blindness to see tomorrow is a recipe for disaster on the personal and business levels is true as you rightly mentioned in your comment.24/02/2017 #42 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMAYour comment, Ali, "If we only take the value of the present time things may look quite different from the future. When the future arrives it shall leave little room for correction" has value not only in our personal lives but in our businesses. Time after time we've seen companies planning only for profits today; failing to see the 'big picture' of tomorrow when those plans could eventually topple their organization. Abraham Lincoln said "You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today".

You start swimming upward
To stay afloat
To enjoy the present time
To plan for usefulness of the time
Time available in the Now and the future.
You see yourself drowning
You identify what's dragging you
Whats causing the weight
So you shake it off
You plan and swim against it

If someone is on the planet, we should respect their right to participate in their own life. Structures and rules should be about fairness in access to space, resources, and community.
How we get to this stage is really to see the hurt of all these wounds, forgive and move on, and then grow a new generation of humans who aren't taught to judge in the open and explicit way we currently conduct our society.

I would have missed it as the feed is supersonic these days and anything posted in the Western Hemisphere is likely to get overlooked unless it is shared during my day. Always fascinated by the minds of artists. But for me, an artist can be technically brilliant, but just like singers, if they don't have soul, their voice/canvas will be will not be engaging. Looking through Mr. Poulin's artwork, I am taken in by the warmth. Absolutely delightful. The book sounds interesting indeed. I spent my early years reading books that provoked thought, upset, and disrupted. These days I prefer books that take me on a journey, like being a passenger in Disney's Small World. So no offence dear Bernard Poulin, I am however tempted by your Colored Pencil Techniques series!09/01/2017 #3 CityVP 🐝 ManjitI was drawn in by the metacogntive attraction of the title of this buzz and then the graphic. Once I got reading, I noticed the word "nude" and I checked back a little for a moment thinking, I hope this is not bait and switch.
No worries, this was a delight to read from top to bottom. While this buzz is about the authors book, the attraction for me here is the worldview of an artist. There is a chasm between the "studio world" and the "other world's".
When it comes to "encouragement", I will draw a quick distinction in my own mind between the artist and the anarchist. The artist absolutely consumes and eats the object of their art - they pull from the very fabric of life, and so the artist takes in a lot to emit a little art. We only see the end product and not what went into the end product that is art.
The anarchist is different, she or he does not want rules to be imposed on them and does not want to be told what to do, which for me is interesting in that there is a relationship that exists between the anarchist and art - one is about creating rules, which kind of paradoxical considering anarchists don't believe in rules - and so it seems that there is a split in the world of anarchists - but the link back to art is the paradoxical.
So now I observe this buzz, just like a painting - a metacognition of Bernard Poulin. This observation is not for me one between the studio and the other worlds, it is the observation of many worlds I observe. I more am more than delighted to welcome Bernard to beBee, as I am delighted @Dean Owen lead me to Lyon Brave, likewise I welcome hearing Dean's observations regarding Bernard's buzz.08/01/2017 #2 Pamela 🐝 WilliamsI'm with Deb, intriguing Bernard. I'm an observer (and I do stare, but try not to get caught). I like to go to a local park and just observe people, try to decipher their expressions and overheard conversations. Ever notice how you can tell which ones are actually thinking, contemplating and those that just seem to walk through the world oblivious of all that is going on around them?
In actuality I'm told I think too much...which never made sense to me.08/01/2017 #1 Deb 🐝 HelfrichThinking my own thinks is my definition of success - it says so right on my website. Along with the fact that I suspect that the meaning of life is to learn to use our own thinking equipment.

Comments09/12/2016 #21 Anonymous#14 In fact, lines and circles are two dimensions. If you add a third dimension to a circle, it becomes a globe. Definetly, we learn in "globe" mode, as we get information from all possible directions. When attending a training, you get not only what is taught, as well the lecturer attitude, the atmosphere, the others' attitude, comments, our own previous knowledge.30/11/2016 #15 Renée 🐝 CormierHmm. I might be somewhere in the middle. A little of both, maybe? I definitely like things to be as uncomplicated as possible and people who natter on endlessly without making a concise point get on my nerves. My spacial perception is terrible and too many details and steps confuse me. Having said that, I can be very resourceful, a great problem solver, independent thinker and very entrepreneurial. What's your opinion, @Graham🐝 Edwards? I think Graham learns in circles.30/11/2016 #14 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#13 Interesting that you brought up maps, @Susan 🐝 Rooks, as I used the words globe and continent-shaped. I think circular learning is more about learning things spatially, in relationship, via representation. And linear directions are certainly part of the ease of recalling some of the most ridiculous things.
I have always had a great sense of direction, probably good since I traveled so much as a consultant, but I shun maps and the existence of GPS is outside my world right now. Even something like getting in an elevator and knowing which way to turn when I got to my floor. It floored me when colleagues would have to walk out and look in order to know which way to go.
I think I learn in 3-D. Back to spatial learning. I also love to pace while talking.
Finally, the newish work on embodied cognition is very self-evident to me, I think precisely because I don't learn in a straight line.30/11/2016 #13 Susan 🐝 RooksWell, @Elizabeth Bailey, you've given us quite a question! Thank you!
I am pretty sure I think in circles; until the last few years no one would have ever called me organized. Straight lines were not for me! And although yes, I'm more organized . . . I am sure others might walk into my small place and wince. The one time straight line thinking works for me is with maps, especially trying to get to a place I've never been before. I don't much like getting anywhere late, so I like to go simply from here to there with a minimum of fuss.
Otherwise, I'm fine with being spontaneous and wandering around -- in my thinking and in my doing.30/11/2016 #12 Elizabeth Bailey#8 I'm glad you enjoyed it @Donna-Luisa Eversley I think, like your teachers, it took me a while to understand it was just a difference in people. Most likely if circle / image learning was mainstream those of us who learn by words and straight lines would be the ones finding it tough.30/11/2016 #8 Donna-Luisa Eversley@Elizabeth Bailey...I learn in circles, and growing up it was hard as my teachers tried to get me on the straight line. I'm also a picture learner and images are easier than words. I can do the lines and words now, but it took me a long time to accept my differences were great and did not make me less of a person.
Thanks for this.30/11/2016 #6 Lisa 🐝 GallagherInteresting @Elizabeth Bailey. I think I'm a mix of both. I'm scattered at times, spontaneous and I can usually learn from fragments of my past if it's something that just makes sense. On the other hand, I need facts, I'm a hands on learner first and foremost. However, there are certain things that I need step by step instruction. I guess it just depends on the circumstance I'm facing.30/11/2016 #4 Deb 🐝 HelfrichVery circular learner right here, @Elizabeth Bailey. Although I represent it a bit more like what I know right now is the 'globe', if I sit in a class, I wait to hear the entire lecture, get the entire scope of the new information, and then I integrate the whole of the new info into my world. I simply do not understand asking questions during the process.
Once something is integrated, I have a map to retrieve it. Maybe it could be said I learn in continent shaped chunks, rather than train tracks. I do very much agree with your statement "they seem to be able to remember all these odd unrelated pieces of information and when they've got enough of them just put them together with an amazing grasp of the subject"
They may strictly speaking be unrelated bits of info, but I learn the relationships, rather than the facts, and that leads to a quicker emergence of a 'concept.'30/11/2016 #3 David B. GrinbergThanks for such an interesting and thought-provoking post, Liz. I think the best outcome is to possess some combination of thinking in straight lines AND circles. I don't think this has to be an either/or choice, although I'm sure most people excel at one over the other. If not, then at least know what you excel at, in addition to your limitations. Then, as you suggest, seek out assistance and guidance as needed.

Comments28/10/2016 #2 Maureen McCannSam, I love that you wrote about this topic and gave your hive the tools to be able to do this themselves.
This week I had the opportunity to introduce a number of people to one another using the strategy you used in the above example. Connecting professionals to one another can have mutual benefit for the two people you are connecting, and for you, the connector.
When you can demonstrate a willingness and an openness to bring people together, you signal to others that you see the potential and opportunity in connecting others.
To use an example from my line of work: When a job seeker turns down a job but recommends a qualified professional instead, that job seeker connects the two and if there's a match, has helped both secure their separate needs. (Even if there isn't a match, both appreciate the good will). If there is a match, the employer has found someone to fill their need and the job seeker has a job. Now both feel very positive about the connector and chances are good, they'll look for ways to help return the favor.
