I've said before that something I really need to focus on is being a little more "tortoise" and a little less "hare". Small, but daily, steps forward can go a long way.
Here are somethings I did this week to take a few more tiny strides forward:
- Picked up a copy of the The Intellectual Devotional. Read one short page per day, and be 365 pages smarter a year from now. Or at least be that much better at trivial pursuit.
- Started a module of the Watershed Academy Web from the EPA. I worked through the Introduction to Watershed Planning module. If you are really ambitious, complete a series of the free modules, pass the self tests and receive a certificate. More info here.
- Watched an EPA NPDES webcast. I started at the beginning:Stormwater 101: The Basics. There is a huge selection of archived webcasts to choose from, and an upcoming series on Green BMPs.
I've spent the past two days in our Waltham office digging deeper into our hydrology and hydraulics programs. I haven't had a lot of opportunity to explore the office, but what I have seen is pleasant. It's modern, bright, airy and just has a good "feel".
If you haven't heard about our LEED certified AEC Headquarters building, you should watch the AEC Keynote from Autodesk University this year. The "Trapelo Road" story begins around minute 80 or so.
