"Quick tips on giving research presentations"

Environmental Economics

Andrew Gelman: So, if I have any general advice on presentations, let me give it here. And here’s what Hal Stern told me before I presented my first professional talk: Don’t try to blow them away, it’s enough to just present what you did.

Settle into the Present Moment, wherever you Are.

Elephant Journal

That’s all well and good, but we need to remember that the only point of practicing meditation is to make our lives into a meditation to be grounded in our experience and connected with the present moment through our daily life. Meditation practice is a different thing.

Past Mistakes, Present Opportunities.

Elephant Journal

One thing I didn''t realize is that learning from past mistakes often means being put in similar or even identical situations to ones that have caught us in the past. We need to use the lessons we''ve learned in those situations to help us now. So it''s not about avoiding situations where we might make mistakes. That''s next to impossible, since every chance we take means more opportunities to make mistakes. And sometimes, making a mistake isn''t the worst thing.
