According to Annie Murphy Paul's website, she is an author, journalist, consultant, and speaker. I know her from articles she has written in the New York Times and from her blog, The Brilliant Blog. However, I would contend that she is not only an author, journalist, consultant, and speaker, but that she is an all-around creator of awesomeness! Her career is dedicated to "helping people understand how we learn and how we can do it better," which she does through her books, articles, and speaking engagements. But what astonishes me the most is that on her Brilliant Blog she has written 75 posts in the month of January alone! Why does she insist on making me look so bad! :)
As she wrote them I took note of posts that resonated with me and have included them below. I encourage you to reflect on how these insights affect your life - at work, at home, with your children, etc - and how you and others around you may benefit from them. Enjoy!
