Things That Light Up My Life

This is a geeky instructional designer moment. But here it is.

What's been lighting up my life this week is when I hear a Subject Matter Expert say, "Let's cut that. Let's go with your Less is More."

It's music to my ears.

(With another client, however, I've had the exact opposite experience. That SME wants more content, wants more explanation, wants more jargon. Can't win 'em all, but I'll keep trying.)

What geeky instructional design moment have you had lately? What's rocking your world?

You ARE a geek! :-)

What's lighting up my life this week is "Beyond Bullet Points" which I'm using to structure the PPT that I'm going to use for my webinar on time management next month. I'm having fun taking more of a story-telling/visual approach to the topic, which frankly bores me to tears, but is what the client wants. I highly recommend the book!

Thanks for the inspiration, Michele.

I assume you're referring to Cliff Atkinson's Beyond Bullet Points?

I haven't checked that one out, but I've heard good things.
