    [Personal] Appreciation Is the Magic Glue that Connects
    Have you had the experience of helping another person with a problem and then never hearing whether what you offered was useful? Appreciation is about the whole person, not just about an achievement or reaching a performance goal. So, noticing a personal characteristic is an important part of appreciation, for example, another’s kindness, consistently meeting commitments, generosity, empathy.

    However, there is an advantage to viewing resistance as a personal characteristic. The advantage is that it allows us to give up on the person. Of course, there is also a great danger in viewing resistance as a personal characteristic. The risk is that our view will hold the person in that place. How we view a person becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. We prevent ourselves from ever learning that the person has or could change.

    [Personal] creating resilient knowledge networks
    The personal knowledge mastery framework is a combination of seeking knowledge, making sense of it, and sharing it with others. “Most people treat PKM as if it’s a full suite of skills that everybody now needs to have … But in fact, like most things, different people have different personality types, and different personality profiles in relation to their personal knowledge affinities and capabilities.”

Intellectual craftsmanship, like PKM, is personal. I was recently referred to a most interesting article, Intellectual Craftsmanship , via Nicole Martin who had recently completed my PKM Workshop.

    3 central factors were indicated as influencing reading literacy: personal motivation, social support and technical aspects e.g. Use of a computer and internet searching. This research project aimed to understand the relationship between reading literacy and information literacy. An online survey was distributed via snowball sampling. There was a high correlation between past and present experiences of reading. Respondents were most likely to read alone rather than with a parent.

    This makes our learning personal: felt in our gut. Christian Madsbjerg concludes in his book, Sensemaking : “What are people for? Algorithms can do many things, but they will never actually give a damn. People are for caring.”. How can we understand the complexity of human networks, especially when they are massaged by algorithms that drive our social media? Empathy can put us in other people’s shoes. We can try to understand their perspective.
