J. Kelly Hoey - Build Your Dream Network

Jumping right to the random ???? from my inbox, which has a decidedly education / wellness focus this week. Enjoy.

Education is a big helper in getting people being able to change their lives

  • Watch: From Prison Cell to Nike’s C-Suite: The Journey of Larry Miller (HBR)
  • How Embedding Purpose in Learning Is a Game Changer for Students, Educators & Parents (Natalie Chan, Cartier Women’s Initiative Fellow | WEF Davos 50 Delegate)
  • A new start after 60: I was devastated by divorce at 70. But at 102, I know the secrets of a well-lived life (The Guardian)
  • IN the none of this should come as a surprise department…that is, when investments in public infrastructure such as public transit and daycare, SUCK and the equal division of labor on the home front is questionable. We Asked Workers Why They’re Not Coming Back to the Office (WSJ)

New research suggests that, indeed, grown-ups might just be too smart for their own good.

  • Tired Adults May Learn Language like Children Do (Scientific American) with a h/t once again to my ride-or-die Monica Parker for this interesting tidbit (and yes, I shall now take a nap while listening to Duolingo)
  • How to Handle Pressure Like a Pro (If I’m Honest podcast with Julia Landauer) – if anyone can handle pressure it’s Julia, she’s a professional stock car racing driver, so this 18 minutes of pure gold.
  • These 9 words can help you make faster, smarter, better decisions. (37 seconds of stellar advice from Daniel Pink)
  • Do you have a burning question about your health or wellbeing? Every Friday (or pretty much every Friday) my pal Angel Shannon, a nurse practitioner who focuses on women’s integrative health is live on Instagram hosting “Ask Me (Almost) Anything”. And while you’re at it, check out the renew, refresh, reinvent your life retreat she’s planned over 5 glorious days in the quiet oasis of Bacalar, Mexico.
