Happy New Year

Submitted by donna on 1 January, 2016 - 11:49

Good morning 2016.

Look! There's 12 fresh shiny months stretched out before us. They are all filled with the promise of productivity, purpose and progress. 

New year's day is a great day to be reflective about the year ahead. It's not so much about planning, but more about pre-planning.

It's a holiday, so the usual noise of the day to day, go go go, has been hushed. 

I like the ideas in this post on mindful.org, with tips on achieving more, by doing less.

I especially liked the idea of applying "MED" to everything. 

The “minimum effective dose” (MED) is the lowest dose of a pharmaceutical that spurs a clinically significant change in health or well-being. Look for the MED in everything: work, sleep, meditation, blogging frequency, checking email, school volunteering, homework help, date nights.

May your 2016 be great!

You can see Peter and me sitting in the bottom right in orange. And behind us? That's our team.  

Drupal is built by a global community, and the 3,300 people at DrupalCon PDX are only a small sample of the power behind Drupal.

Sponsoring BarCamp Melbourne

Submitted by donna on 18 July, 2012 - 11:39

BarCamp Melbourne takes place in just 10 days. Creative Contingencies has thrown some coins in the hat to sponsor the event and help ensure it's free for attendees.  Would-be BarCampers do have to pay $10 up front to secure their place, as spots are limited. Too often, people sign up, but don't show up. A small financial commitment seems to work to reduce the number of no-shows. If attendees do turn up, they get a refund, or the option to donate their fee to a carbon offset scheme.
