Book and Brunch (and BarCamp Philly Hangover Recovery)

Another Book & Brunch!

Yes, it's back!

The Book

Switch by Heath and Heath

From Amazon:

Why is it so hard to make lasting changes in our companies, in our communities, and in our own lives?

The primary obstacle is a conflict that’s built into our brains, say Chip and Dan Heath, authors of the critically acclaimed bestseller Made to Stick. Psychologists have discovered that our minds are ruled by two different systems—the rational mind and the emotional mind—that compete for control. The rational mind wants a great beach body; the emotional mind wants that Oreo cookie. The rational mind wants to change something at work; the emotional mind loves the comfort of the existing routine. This tension can doom a change effort—but if it is overcome, change can come quickly.

Thanks Audrey Troutt for the recommendation!

The Brunch

Mi Lah!

They can handle our group, and it's in Center City. We'll be better about ordering early this time.

BarCamp is the day before, so many of us might be nursing hangovers. Nothing brunch can't cure!

 

Standard rules:

1. Read the book if you can, but it's not a deal breaker

2. BYOB

3. Profit -- er -- have fun!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
