If you love something, set it free. If it comes back…

hourglass I’ve been heads-down at a conference these past several days, so I’ve been quiet here on the blog (though I’ve been active on Twitter, as some of you may have seen).  I have some pent-up posts that I’ll be writing up in the next few days.  My nice, long plane ride ahead tomorrow would be ideal for that, wouldn’t it?  Some of the items in the hopper:

  • Interesting thoughts after attending a talk by Stephen M. R. Covey on “The Speed of Trust” – not just the book, but the awesome concepts underlying the book.
  • A review of a radically improved version of the Netcentrics “Getting Things Done” add-in for Outlook.
  • A couple of gadget-related reviews, and a couple of other books.

In the mean time, you might enjoy my latest post on the newly re-designed “Joyful Jubilant Learning” site about “Early Abandonment and Boomerangs” (hint – it’s sort of about social media, sort of about gadgets, and may strike a nerve with you).

So what does the title of this post mean?  It’s an obscure connection to the “Early Abandonment and Boomerangs” metaphor.  At least they connect in my mind.  If they don’t connect for you, forget I said that, and just enjoy the other post…
