May 7 Check-in

We talked about a problem-solving (or opportunity-finding) model where you write a statement of the problem or issue in the  middle of a sheet of paper, then you brainstorm possible solutions without filtering your ideas, then you narrow down those ideas and choose a plan. 
 
So, the assignment for class was to write the issue of "What are my plans for the summer?"  Then brainstorm possibilities. . . things like train my dog, or shoot 100 free throws, or learn to ride a unicycle. . . etc.   Then eliminate the ideas that won't work for a variety of practical reasons, and settle on a plan. 
 
Your accountability is to email me one thing you plan to work on this summer.
