Monday Morning Meeting
MMMs are dependable story time. Every–okay, most–Monday mornings when you sit at your desktop or laptop or phone or iPad or Kindle or Nook and power up, you’ll find a new True Story. You’ll “meet” someone or something. You might learn something; you might learn nothing. But at least you won’t have been in an actual Monday morning meeting.
I’ll write other days, too, probably Thursday or Friday. But Monday will be date morning.
I like the idea of coming together to learn and talk. About anything. As a child, my second-favorite day of the year was the first day of school. (My first favorite was the July morning my family left every year for a resort in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. But even that six-hour car ride was a meeting.)
In my Big Ideas brain, one true story at a time we can move closer to some sort of sync. Not just tolerance, but sync. Through stories, we learn from each other, increase our awareness, and, I hope, our empathy.
Plus, I’m pretty Type-A, so organization is cool.
Thanks for reading.
