Week 6: Us versus The Bad Guys
Where there is story, there is conflict...as we were told in our first lessons about narrative. Inspired by last week’s discussion of and other Bad Guys, it’s time to look at that part of our adventures. The bad guys may change from one chapter to another, one story to another, especially as we learn methods for defeating them. Who/what are the bad guys in your current adventure? How are they causing you undue troubles? What skills might we use (or offer to others) in these conquests?
I hope last week was kind to you and there are good things to report.
--At least 1 walk, 1 stretch session, and 1 weight-lifting session, preferably on 3 different days.
--Follow up on editorial and peer reviews for project (both my own and those assigned to others), especially my own editorial review of contribution by who will soon be on maternity leave.
--Make progress on second individual contribution to curricular project
--Continue morning writing on weekdays I'm at home (1 day on individual contribution, 1 day on reflection for FLC)
--Talk to colleague about possible conference-presentation proposal on curricular project
--Take a day off (Saturday?)
--aim to be in bed by 9 p.m. each night (even if reading)
