Jon Krakauer’s book “Into the Wild” is being released as a movie. It’s one of my favorite books, I wonder if the movie version will preserve what, to me, was one of it’s main points: Don’t ever give up and slip into neutral, the bridge across the river may be just a few hundred more feet around the next bend.
Don’t plan ahead. At least not way ahead. It is becoming more and more clear that the long-range plan I was taught to do in graduate business school is a waste of time for the entrepreneur and small business owner, regardless of what the Small Business Administration has been teaching since 1954. If long-range planning worked, we’d have a planned economy and not a market economy.
Critics claim that
Denver public school reform is being guided by "policy wonks" enamored of "preprogrammed curricula" and "the latest fads."That gives the upcoming Denver school board election greater significance than most – it is a referendum, in effect, on the past two years under the leadership of Superintendent Michael Bennet, as well as his plans for the future.
Because the November Denver school board election is so important, all of us here in Denver should all attend at least one of the school hearings that have been scheduled around the city. http://www.rockymountainnews.com/drmn/local/article/0,1299,DRMN_15_5704413,00.html
