What if the “presenter” for each meeting, selected the chapter??
Each presenter could create a new topic, (like “Book club meeting Feb 28”) and then tell everyone what they’ve picked. Everyone would then have time to read it in advance. Conversations and discussion before and after the meeting can live on in that topic…
@Annie and @ChristiCassidy - it is very EASY for me to send them tomorrow by UPS - much faster than US Post from here so you should both have by Thursday, more likely Wednesday, better tracking etc. Thanks so much for letting me do this!
@AnnieP@craigconstantine - I really don’t want to rush either and would like to come away with a sense that I truly OWN the concepts and have absorbed the principles enough to live The Practice. A chapter a month would be 16+ years. Maybe we should decide how long we want to spend on the book. Interest might diminish if too long. Can we find a sweet spot? Examples ONLY: if we say 6 months, then the math puts it at around 33 Chapters a month (8 to 9 a week). If we say 8 months - 25 a month, 6 a week - 10 Months, 20 a month, 4 a week etc. At this point, I am leaning towards 10 months - 10 meetings. NOT for every book but this one is so rich. If we come to an easy mutual understanding, should we add this to the Launch Post as a proposal or a starting framework?
Just because the assignment is , for example sake, 10 chapters, it will be up to the presenter to decide what they want to focus on. Likewise, the members of each breakout can then decide whether they Use the presenters focus or speak about what made the greatest impact on them.
What I think I am asking is does the group want the next 11 months to be about the practice or do we cover the book in 6 months
Trust the learner, Mary to make the best choice for them
