I’ve gotten way behind on things with too much travel and a lot of soccer work. Here are some links I’ve been accumulating that are worthwhile for most of you.
Greg McMillan has been busy recording what he calls “Deminars. Here’s number 4 “Online Process Control Lab Access and Use” and number 5, “PID Tuning for Self-Regulating Processes“.
Jim Cahill has a number of interesting posts at Emerson Process Experts: “Organizational Change and Process Analytical Technology and Quality by Design” ; Details of a “New WirelessHart Book” ; and “More Thoughts on Executing IEC 61511 Process Safety Projects“.
Leo Babauta has a good ZenHabits post on “The No. 1 Habit of Highly Creative People” (Note: I’ve practiced the habit, when does the creativity kick in?)
Doug Wysockey-Johnson has a blog named for the organization he heads–Lumunos. Here he riffs on the Fulghum essay, “Everything I Needed To Know I Learned in Kindergarten.” (and a little of Jeff Foxworthy’s You know you’re a redneck…”) with You are Powerful When You… A couple of examples: Help someone, try something that is hard to do. There’s more.
I saw this great quote on Business Insider, “I try to buy stock in businesses that are so wonderful that an idiot can run them. Because sooner or later, one will,” Warren Buffet.
Jason Falls at Social Media Explorer lists “25 Simple Ways to Earn Trust.”
Another one from Business Insider is “How Andreessen Horowitz Evaluates CEOs“.
Three good posts from the Lean guys at Evolving Excellence. How safety and quality go together, “No Such Thing As Selective Excellence” ; “Outsourcing Actually Lowers Profits” ; when are you giving away secrets, or it’s in the execution, stupid — “We’re Not Making Chicken Here“.
And finally, I’m getting close to buying an iPad. Just got one for my wife so she can read books on it (she says). I’ll try it. But Michael Hyatt here talks about how he’s using it to take notes in meetings.
Gary, thanks for sharing the Emerson Process Experts posts with your readers. I hope you survive the heat of Phoenix this week.
Take it easy, Jim
I, too, am a big fan of Evernote and have been using it for several years now. Recent versions have added very useful features, so if you’re a past user it may be worth another look.
I was thrilled when the iPad version became available and use this version and device the most often.
The synchronization across all devices is truly the most useful feature of all. If I’m out with only my iPhone, I still have access to all of my notes.
