Quickie post: “Breakthrough”

Hello, Frameshifters! Long time, no talk. Just a quickie post, as I haven't posted in so long, and I had a fascinating experience. I left my 9-to-5 job, I'm full-time working for myself, and my time has been FULL of adventures: creating an updated logo, developing my website, going to networking meetings, having 1-on-1s with… Continue reading Quickie post: “Breakthrough”

Organize (Blueprint for Mastery)

The Thought Police, Part 1

It is intolerable to us that an erroneous thought should exist anywhere in the world, however secret and powerless it may be. 1984 I was having an unexpected conversation with a student the other day. She was clearly upset and I asked her what was going on. She was having trouble with a classmate who… Continue reading The Thought Police, Part 1
