Sometimes, when I have a lot of thoughts, but I can't get them into any kind of coherent order, I throw them all into a blog post. Lucky you! Random wrap ups are also a good way to stall when I really should be doing something else, so doubly lucky you, because I am an excellent staller.
1. Do you consider yourself a worrier or an over thinker? This is me to a tee. I can't remember my license plate number without looking at it, but I could tell you what I was wearing during a disastrous encounter over 10 years ago. Disastrous for me is usually of the foot-in-mouth variety. But now scientists say that means over thinkers are creative geniuses. Boom.
2. And because "creative genius" does not remove the over thinking and worrying, here are 5 things that won't be a big deal down the road. Number 4 is a good one for me right now.
3. Have you seen the story about the Laughlin AFB pilots that are being fired for what they've been texting? Interesting. Is this a case of over energetic commanders? Or is there more to the story? Now General Welsh is reviewing the case.
4. Another must-listen pod cast from the TED Radio Hour on the Meaning of Work. The stories on "super chickens" and Steve Shirley I thought were the most interesting - the first being a sad indictment of how we promote in the military (my opinion, not part of the TED talk) and the second being an incredible inspiration for women in technical fields.
Have a great week everyone!
