Giving gravity its due

Table Board in the conference room
The picture shows a huge white board placed on a table.

Typically white boards are wall mounted. One person scribbling or doodling and sort-of 'teachering' the people gazing at the board. Now that's more like a mass-media phenomenon. Advertisement bombarded through television and watched haplessly by folks gathered around.

I've tried making white board activities slightly more engaging, slightly more involving by placing it right on the table around which people sit. That way there's very little chance that they are staring at a void. They can't. Besides, working like this creates more proximity (actual physical proximity) between the content/matter and the people sitting around the table. And I've felt that this proximity rubs off positively. It's like everybody sharing the board-space equally; everybody's got a stake.

Lastly, you must've noticed this if you've ever scribbled for a while on a wall-mounted white board, standing. Legs tire. And so does the writing-hand. I've arranged it in a naturally convenient manner; you don't have to fight gravity to raise your writing hand. You don't have to stand and people don't have to stare keeping the heads held high and erect. They can slouch. They can keep the heads down. Work still happens. They are still receiving. They are paying attention.

Try it if you are a meeting-holic team.

David Damron on filling time

Just a few moments back I read this guest post by David Damron (of The Minimalist Path) on ZenHabits. Fantastic read. Simple to apply and see the result for yourself. So, am publishing the same post here. Spread the message far and wide (for it is mighty important) :).

In the post below, forget the word Materialism. It isn't such a 'spiritual' lesson after all; though it could be if you want to take it that way. My point is it might just help you to set some worthy goals for yourself.
