Thursday Thingy: The 2011 Overture (cont'd) plus new video

SHARE Thursday Thingy: The 2011 Overture (cont'd) plus new video

As I sat down to edit the video that would become our collaborative “2011 Overture,” I became overwhelmed by the number of “movements” (piece of advice) that were sent in. So many great ones, and such a wide range. But just too many to include in a short video (if I wanted you all-- or anyone-- to actually watch it).

So here’s the next step. We’ve set up this fun and easy form for you to choose your favorites; you can check as many (or as few) as you’d like. And then in no time, thanks to Google Docs, I’ll have a tally sheet...and this will really help me bring the video to life. Cool?

Here it is:

The 2011 Overture: selection of “movements”

And now just for fun, here’s a new 1-minute video inspired by the eloquent and oh-so-convincing language of Spam.

I call this piece:

See you Monday (btw, any other Reality Check anecdotes? and Kate-- I loved your response/comment!)
