I have tremendous respect for the work of @davidrock101 and @maryfslaughter of the @NeuroLeadership Institute. Read their piece on why learning needs to be effortful in order to be effective. https://t.co/6Wf0HDwz9f

Many of us are taking time off from work during the summer. If that is the case for you, I strongly encourage you to find ways to connect and bond with family. A balanced life is key to achievement in other aspects of life.
