The daily SingularityHub is very worthwhile to peruse. Yes, even daily. On 5/26 there’s coverage of the progress/impact of 3D printing in the $10 trillion manufacturing business……currently can print in c. 300 different materials…full color….in mixed media…complexity and personalization come “for free”. Amazing, especially given that only a few years ago, for most of us 3D printing was altogether just a future idea. Look it up and ponder.

Disruptive in Big Health Care, Higher Education, and Finance too, I believe…..

As Spring on Cap Cod gains momentum – a delight after the winter we had – my focus on improving, expanding, & enriching my website continues its major new focus points . Maybe perhaps 6 months old. Maybe perhaps, I’ll be doing this as long as I’m able [ planning on 15 years more – that’s in my long range plan, current version].  Four major thrusts -1] providing a fast improving search function  -2]arranging for your option of adding comments where you’d like  – 3]making the whole site more anticipatory or future oriented, rather than just archival or historical and adding 4] photos with explanatory comments by me, for new LLF facilitators to ponder

I’m thinking this will be 6 more months of intense web building and additions. Then normal creativity for the rest of my years!!

A set of WSJ columnists shared their perceptions on this topic in the WSJ Weekend Edition 5-20 & 21-2015 in the WSJ Magazine, page 38. Their ideas/views are important for any facilitator attempting to bring about more than just what’s on the agenda.

Rayne Baron -“…all of a sudden you can’t control it anymore. You have to stand back and let it take on a life of its own”….

Reggie  Watts – “… definitely about listening, literally listening to everything around you… to the ineffable, the intangible. Everything has its own vibrations”

Theresa Caputo – “…Negative vibes prevent us from seeing things. So I always say to everybody. ‘quiet your mind’  ”
All three points are very relevant to allowing the “Magic” to build in a Leadership Learning Forum, which is, in my opinion, the lead facilitator’s main  responsibility. Get the full article to ponder  and focus on the “Vibes” in your sessions. Or, that aren’t there, if not & perhaps how to engender them?!?
