    One of the ways people sabotage themselves is to get caught up in the belief that life is a binary; you’re good or you’re bad. You’re born naturally skilled with women or you’re not. You’re a nerd.   And sadly when it comes to positive reviews, authors and publishers these days will sometimes pay for fake reviews of the book (a good clue for this is a whole boatload of 5-star reviews posted on the very same day/week the book is released). So look at the aggregate rating the book has received, then read a few 5-star, 3-star, and 1-star.

Journaling your thoughts, decisions, behaviours and results is a great way to keep perspective, stay focused and motivated and to de-emotionalise the change process. It’s also a good way for you .

      I’ve put together this cheat sheet of 50 interesting conversation topics you can use at any time to rekindle the conversation, even if you feel it start to go downhill. You can go over this list before a first date or a party, whenever you need to have a few good . Data champions like Rick Stiggins, Richard DuFour and Nancy Love have done wonderful work with—and for–data. Love’s book Using Data to Improve Learning for All is a well-written and thorough starting point for any teacher wanting to better understand how data can support improvement in their craft.. But it’s not that simple.
