"...young people are terrified to tweet. The assumption of good faith is dead. What matters is not goodness but the appearance of goodness. We are no longer human beings. We are now angels jostling to out-angel one another. God help us. It is obscene." https://www.chimamanda.com/

@mishari I taught my kids geography playing a simplified version of Risk before they could even read the names on the board. They have great shape recognition at that age.
Kids just figured out multiplications by themselves. They did it by observing the combination of notes in Monopoly. #KidOps
taoism, "acting simply"
"True leaders are hardly known to their followers.
Next after them are the leaders the people know and admire;
after them, those they fear;
after them, those they despise.
To give no trust is to get no trust.
When the work’s done right,
with no fuss or boasting,
ordinary people say,
Oh, we did it."
-Laozi, Chapter 17

I'll certainly be remembering this lesson for the next KPI/OKRs I need to develop.
The kids then come up with ideas on how to meet the target. "Sorry" said, rooms cleaned, integrity maintained. There's also a focus on solving problems rather than emotional outbursts, the space that is created once goals are sensible and clear allows wonders to happen.
No crying strikes a chord, it's something everyone can get behind. Whenever there's an incident that leads to crying, as emotions build-up, we take a break and talk about the incident our no crying target.
One's initial intuition is to do KPIs for the number of punches per day, but the punches are a reaction to a trigger, say, an insult, not getting ones way, or complex interactions gone bad.
No crying on the other hand is a KPI that all the stakeholders can get behind.
