How to Design a Life – Debbie Millman



"Hard decisions are only hard when you’re in the process of making them.”

This is a great podcast and I suggest that you take the time to listen to the whole interview. However, you can skip to the 5/10 year plan bit straight away (see below).


  • Debbie shares “Your Ten-Year Plan for a Remarkable Life” exercise she modified from Milton Glaser. [1:33:51]

Shut up and Write sessions and next Writing Retreats

Sent on behalf of Professor Maggie Andrews
 
Dear All
 
To provide some support and space for you to make progress with your dissertation writing - whether post-grad or undergraduate we are going to run some Shut Up and Write Sessions between now and Easter - on Wednesdays from 4-6ish in Jenny Lind.  This week and next we are in Jenny Lind JLG012 (Wednesday 15th and 22 February ) .
 
There is a chance to have a cup of tea, a biscuit and chat about of the challenges of writing and how to overcome them – then some space to write.
 
Email if you would like to know more – or just turn up. A number of students found the Shut Up and Write groups helped them make real progress with their dissertations at this vital time of the year
 
There are also two Writing Retreats this term on Saturday 25th of February in Jenny Lind JLG010  and 25th March from 10am-4pm - if possible email maggie.andrews@worc.ac.uk  in advance so we can organize adequate lunch.
 
All the best
 
Maggie
 
Professor of Cultural History
University of Worcester
