Garr Reynolds/Presentations
Before you even open up PowerPoint, sit down and really think about the day of your presentation. What is the real purpose of your talk? Why is it that you were asked to speak? Before you begin to formulate the content of your presentation, you need to ask yourself many basic questions with an eye to becoming the best possible presenter for that particular audience. Who is the audience? What are their backgrounds? What is the purpose of the event? Is it to inspire? Why were you asked to speak? What are their expectations of you? Where is it? Find out everything you can about the location and logistics of the venue. When is it? Do you have enough time to prepare? No matter how great your delivery, or how professional and beautiful your supporting visuals, if your presentation is not based on solid content, you can not succeed. Do not fall into the trap of thinking that in order for your audience to understand anything, you must tell them everything. Simple does not mean stupid.

The 27 Principles to Teaching Yourself Anything (aka The Self-Guided Education Manifesto + PDF download “I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.” —Mark Twain Note: This post is intentionally long. It’s meant to be our compass for learning the skills that matter in the world and throwing theory out the window. Read it. At the end of this post I’ve even provided two free PDF downloads to further guide you towards learning what matters (one is a list of over 30 of the best online resources for creating your own passion-filled curriculum). Enter the Unofficial Self-Guided Education Manifesto… Last week’s article on The Birth of Self-Guided Education caught like wildfire. When that happens, I know a topic deserves some respect. Many of last week’s comments blew my mind. Living Legends create their own education. The truth of the matter is every Living Legend (whether they dropped out of high school or got a couple PhD’s) took their education and their learning into their own hands. So without further ado… 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. “90% of my education was outside of the classroom.” 7.

Psychologie des Dialogmarketings | Tipps, Trends, wissenschaftliche Ergebnisse zu Offline-, Mobile- und Onlinemarketing denkfaul.de Was soll man noch sagen. Da wird immer noch diskutiert, ob denn Griechenland ein Problem darstelle, und Japan und die USA (und gelegfentlich auch Großbritannien) sollten doch zuerst ihre eigenen Schulden betrachten. Dabei sollten doch diejenigen, die das behaupten, erst einmal die unterschiedlichen Strickmuster der jeweiligen Schuldenstrukturen untersuchen, bevor sie sich zu solchen Äußerungen hinreißen lassen. Heute war in einem Online-Videokommentar zu hören, dass zu bedenken sei, dass 600 der 730 Millionen, die an Griechenland fließen sollen, aus Zentralbank-Gewinnen stammten. Unter anderem deshalb sei jegliche Empörung unangebracht. Ach. Einerseits begegnen wir hier der Illusion des mehrfach vorhandenen Kapitals. An dieser Stelle scheint noch ein moralisches Argument Einzug zu halten. Das klingt im ersten Moment plausibel, ist aber heikel. Einerseits steht hier den Gewinnen auch ein Risiko gegenüber. Und jetzt denken Sie von diesem Punkt aus zurück. Genau. Nein.

33 Conspiracy Theories That Turned Out To Be True Most people can’t resist getting the details on the latest conspiracy theories, no matter how far-fetched they may seem. At the same time, many people quickly denounce any conspiracy theory as untrue … and sometimes as unpatriotic or just plain ridiculous. Lets not forget all of the thousands of conspiracies out of Wall Street like Bernie Madoff and many others to commit fraud and extortion, among many crimes of conspiracy. USA Today reports that over 75% of personal ads in the paper and on craigslist are married couples posing as single for a one night affair. When someone knocks on your door to sell you a set of knives or phone cards, anything for that matter, do they have a profit motive? What is conspiracy other than just a scary way of saying “alternative agenda”? When 2 friends go to a bar and begin to plan their wingman approach on 2 girls they see at the bar, how often are they planning on lying to those girls? To many, conspiracy theories are just human nature. 1. 2. 4. 5. 7.

Appropriate sharing « Don't be a frog! I need to pee! That’s maybe a bit too straight forward, isn’t it? As a kid we would share our wants and needs as open as this. But as we develop we get to know how to appropriately share our feelings and needs to save others from the uncomfortable TMI feeling we sometimes get when someone tells us things we didn’t really need or want to know. So seems that when this is a basic thing to learn alongside with sharing, we might want to take a look at how to share information online. If we all state what we do and what we need like it was suggested in the last blog post, we should do also this appropriately. “Share in a way that people will want to listen.” If I share something with you that you are not interested in, then I have wasted my time. If I walk up to you in the street going “I like to have anal sex!” “How do we share then???” How to share information successfully Let’s talk about the two main topics which are important for us to be shared. 1. 2.
