10 Posts of 2009: Turning Points in My Learning and Personal Development

I spent this weekend sifting through my posts and here is my list of top 10 posts of 2009. The exercise itself proved to be very interesting and beneficial for me. I realized that I had forgotten a lot of what I had written in the earlier part of the year. Also, I now feel more confident about answering a number of questions I had raised in my earlier posts. This is, for me, one of my biggest gains.

The list of posts I have selected--not because they are particularly well-written or anything--but because each indicates a turning point in my understanding and learning.

The posts do not focus on any one specific topic, but even as I re-read some of them, I realized that these are reflective in nature with the focus being more on seeking of meaning and the creation of a pattern.

  1. Data, Information, Insight...A Fine Balance!

  2. Dealing with Ambiguity!

  3. Creating Meaning by Exclusion

  4. 5 Minds for The Future and The Conceptual Age

  5. Serenity

  6. Social Networking: As Easy as Pie

  7. Training Must Be Inconsistent!!!

  8. Do people need training on how to learn?

  9. Learning in 2009: My Story

  10. In Response: Accidental Instructional Designers #dl09--Part I  (I always think of this as the post with the maximum comments from people I learn from everyday)

Would love to read your comments...Look forward to learning from all of you.
