Failure To Learn

Scribblisms "Failure to Succeed" "Sab Will" "Rainbow English School"My latest Scribblism is delightfully simple yet timelessly profound.

Even in writing those words above, I ask myself, can there still be anyone who doesn’t agree that making mistakes is OK; a perfectly natural and, indeed, essential part of the learning process.

But then I remember back to my school days when corporal punishment – i.e. teachers HITTING children – was still occasionally performed – yes, I’m that old – and I realise that a dim view of ‘getting things wrong’ is not so far away, even in relatively advanced countries.

Like Father, Love Son

FILE UNDER: Photography ~ Self-portraits

My artistically-inclined self-portrait project, or documented slow demise, if you prefer, started quite a few years ago now, and well before the selfie crazy, I hasten to add.

You’d have to go waayyy back into the archives to discover its origins and I’m sure I’ve gone on about the philosophy behind it elsewhere far too much already so I’ll try not to bore you here with more ruminations…

Mind Mapping & Creativity Days in Paris!

FILE UNDER: Courses ~ Mind Mapping / Creativity

mind mapping course creativity Paris "Sab Will"HEY, this is pure publicity, but if I can’t do it on my own blog, then where can I do it, right?

So, COME TO MY MIND MAPPING & CREATIVITY courses in Paris, they’ll be amazing and look, if you book one day you get the other one FREE – yes!

Mind Mapping & Creativity Courses in Paris !

2nd Course FREE only in September & October

Both days are in French but my English is ok too…

They WILL be amazing; sorry, said that already.

Half of the course input is inspired by my Very Official Qualifications in Mind Mapping and Applied Innovation from the ThinkBuzan/OpenGenius team who I trained with last year in the UK.

The other half comes from my own experience and ideas – yep, I have those too – and I have to say I’m EXTREMELY excited about it!

Words & Pics Nos.106-112

FILE UNDER: Fun English Lessons ~ Words & Pics

Hot on the heels of my latest batch of 10 Quick Quizzes, I thought I’d sort out the latest week of WordPics. I’m up to 112 now, can you imagine, I’ll be able to publish a dictionary soon!

What be WordPics?  Well, they be a word or expression with a definition and a little personal text, accompanied by one of my pictures and an audio recording of it all to listen to, too.

In fact, to be quite transparent about this, the words, stories and definitions are directly inspired by the photos, as a way of combining my images and word work in a fun way.

Quick Quizzes Nos. 41-50

FILE UNDER: Fun English Lessons ~ Quick Quiz

"Fun English Lessons" "Quick Quiz" 41-51Poor old Fun English Lessons has suffered from neglect recently, but it’s far from being a dead duck!

Priorities, inspiration and sometimes a frightful lack of organisation are to blame, my friends, so there you have it; the truth is out at last.

Anyway, I’m very fond of my Quick Quiz series and I’ll publish the latest batch of 10 here as and when it appears – posting a message for each little quiz question (and cool image, of course) would probably be overkill!

Rainbow Teaching & Learning Values

July 29

FILE UNDER: Rainbow English School ~ Mind Maps

"Rainbow Teaching Learning Values" "Mind Map Mad"My Rainbow Teaching and Learning Values mind map took me quite a while and even some research with is a bit rare for me as I tend to produce things quickly and spontaneously.

The rough-and-ready approach wasn’t possible here though because I had to look at the emotions and associations people link to specific colours in some detail.

I’d already thought about this in an article over on Creative Business Mind called Blue For You so the foundations were there, I just needed to put it into a learning-friendly form.

GREAT NEWS! 🇬🇧 English and 🇫🇷 French versions are available and I’m now looking for a friendly 🇪🇸 Spanish-speaker for obvious reasons…

Empty To Open

FILE UNDER: Rainbow English School ~ Scribblisms

"Sabbisms Empty to Open" "Sab Lab" "Rainbow English School"In my Scribblisms series, I have fun re-purposing amazing things said by enlightened people and adding a few words of my own too.

The theme of these pieces is education but you’ll also see similar items on creativity in professional and personal life in my Sabisms series with possibly Dodoisms and Frabulisms to follow down the line, but we’ll see.
