“Take it easy. Nothing you do matters as much as you think. Your greatest achievements aren’t yours at all, they’re accidents and jokes. You’re a puppet, the universe does the work, and it gets the most done when you’re moving the least. Surrender, flow, relax. Don’t be hard on yourself, don’t put pressure on yourself, life is just a chain of experiments and results, and you’ll be perfect when you’re dead.”—Dan Harmon (via nevver)
Jeg har været så heldig, sammen med et par kolleger, Randi Hovmann og Niels Pedersen at hjælpe Folkeskolen, der er en del af DLF, at vinde årets Bordingpris. Prisen er givet for Folkeskolen.dk og bladet Folkeskolen, der har været en fantastisk kunde og samarbejdspartner, - og som naturligvis har fået størstedelen af prisen.
Begrundelse: “Medieprisen til Folkeskolen/Folkeskolen.dk blev givet for en forbilledlig stærk og sammenhængende fornyelse af både fagblad og web-side med en klar målsætning om dagsordensættende temaer og udvidelse af debatten med medlemmerne. Folkeskolen udgives af Danmarks Lærerforening.”
Do not think it worth while to proceed by concealing evidence, for the evidence is sure to come to light.
Never try to discourage thinking for you are sure to succeed.
When you meet with opposition, even if it should be from your husband or your children, endeavor to overcome it by argument and not by authority, for a victory dependent upon authority is unreal and illusory.
Have no respect for the authority of others, for there are always contrary authorities to be found.
Do not use power to suppress opinions you think pernicious, for if you do the opinions will suppress you.
Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric.
Find more pleasure in intelligent dissent than in passive agreement, for, if you value intelligence as you should, the former implies a deeper agreement than the latter.
Be scrupulously truthful, even if the truth is inconvenient, for it is more inconvenient when you try to conceal it.
Do not feel envious of the happiness of those who live in a fool’s paradise, for only a fool will think that it is happiness.
“Decades of research have consistently shown that brainstorming groups think of far fewer ideas than the same number of people who work alone and later pool their ideas.”—Keith Sawyer, Washington University (via magnificentruin)
