1. “Winging it” is not a plan and a horrible strategy. (By @LYSNation)

2. To get the desired effect, go positive. Fear and intimidation is not a long-term solution. (By @LYSNation)

4. Best thing I heard today.  Stop fighting the wind and adjust your sail. (By @blitzkrieg607)

5. Most leaders heavily underestimate the amount of reiteration of the vision and message that any change requires. (By DCulberhouse)

6. Critical writing is the best vehicle for communicating critical thinking! (By @LYSNation)

7. The definition of critical writing is writing that forces cognition and connection. It’s not the length that matters, it’s the thinking. (By @LYSNation)

8. Greg Abbott says he was obligated to defend school funding lawsuit. I can buy that, but was he obligated to appeal the state’s loss? (By @txschoolsupe)

9. Your minimum “safe” savings rate for retirement… 16.6% of annual income. – Dr. W. Pfau (By @LYSNation)
