These are notes to myself. If you discover them and find them useful I would love to hear from you. Most of these are related to travel I did, books I read, or tech notes for Matomo and the LAMP stack.

Booknotes 7 Simple Steps by Jessica Hagy


Evan Genest says

I wish I had known about this book when I was a mentor of tenth graders. Back then I was too focused on teaching chemistry. I could have added this sort of coaching and pep talks and reached a totally different part of my audience.

There's great Growth Mindset tips in this book, concretized. I'm putting all the nuggets here now. Surely I will get a chance to use these in a coaching situation.
