Squiggle Cycle

PROLOGUE

“Perception is everything.” — a perceptive someone.

SQUIGGLES

Last night's #caedchat was fun. Q5 piqued my curiosity: What are my professional New Year resolutions? First pass, whatever it is share it with others to increase the chance it'll get done.

Sketch of the cycle of learning and sharing

Learn>Share>Squiggle cycle

@AustinKleon in Show Your Work! describes a learn>teach cycle. I think it should be more about sharing then remaining in contact through the squiggles. Squiggles are the trial and error we experience (orange in image above) on the way to mastery.
CYCLE
Ideally there are two squiggle moments per Learn>Share cycle: yours just after a learning event and the one others have after you share your know-how. 2015 will be different because of new modes of relationship building.

EPILOGUE

Here's the idea:

  1. Learn then share through the squiggles.
  2. Collaborate via social media and professional associations to learn from diverse perspectives.
