Title: 43 Things: The Library Edition


1
43 Things The Library Edition
  • Why is this presentation called 43 Things?
  • It's based on the popular social networking site,
    43 Things, where users create accounts and then
    share lists of goals and hopes.
  • Its the first prime number after 42, which we
    all know is the Ultimate Answer to the Great
    Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
  • In the parlance of Getting Things Done, a Tickler
    File consists of a series of 43 file folders 12
    monthly and 31 daily folders.
  • Plus, 43 is just the right number of ideas for a
    one-hour session at Tri-Conference.

2
Whats the point?
  • People have known for years that making a list of
    goals is the best way to achieve them. But most
    of us never get around to making a list.
  • You can use the ideas you hear today to inspire
    your own 43 Things. Or, set up your own goals
    from scratch. Either way, the intent is to
    stimulate action!

    poignant how that army of burden has been routed
    to a group of librarians who probably never
    considered that they would be given that kind of
    responsibility.
