Framework for planning virtually any learning adventure
This is an ambitious effort to combine concepts and strategies described in her previous books into an organized, four-week framework that one can use to plan and evaluate virtually any specific learning adventure. This is more than just a step-by-step grid for breaking down a goal into a sequence of subgoals. Rather, it encourages one to consider a wide range of factors associated with successful learning and living. It takes a bit of work to become familiar with the definitions of the terms and acronyms used (e.g., milestones, process goals, destination goals, S.P.A.R.K., S.M.A.R.T.), but nevertheless provides a useful and flexible planning template.
