On Becoming a Finder

Single red tulup in a field of yellows

Over the past few years, I have made a subtle, yet powerful shift in my thinking; instead of being a “seeker”, always looking for things, I have become a “finder”. This has opened me up to some of the deepest learning of my 49 years on this planet. So, with the idea of being a “finder” in mind, I logged onto my Diigo account and typed in tags such as “AHA”, “Powerful” and “WOW”. (My tagging skills are not fully developed, yet somehow in tune with my life as a finder.) The “finds” seemed to rest neatly in the “for administrator” category, so below are a few gems for administrators…or anyone interested in re-imagining learning in a time where it is no longer optional to do so. Enjoy!
