Let Them Lead

In 2010 I contributed to a newsletter within one of NASPA’s (National Association of Student Personnel Administrators) knowledge communities. The Student Leadership Knowledge educates and connects leadership educators within colleges across the US and abroad. I wrote a piece that implores practitioners to let students lead, understanding that the best practice is experience. I amContinue reading “Let Them Lead”

Only Light Can Do That

As we move past yet another 9/11, I am reminded of the relevance of this quote in both my life and in my work. Much has changed since my last post. I have been blessed to have my family move up with me finally, we have found an amazing condo in Rogers Park in Chicago,Continue reading “Only Light Can Do That”

Why Not a Video Game?

Sign up to play the demo and give us feedback at http://projectrecreate.com My good friend and now co-founder Cole Morrison snatched my attention with that question. Actually there was more to it. He said: “If a Good Book, Song, or Movie Can Change a Person’s Life…Why Not A Video Game?” Well why not indeed? VideoContinue reading “Why Not a Video Game?”

Gratitude

It has been months since I posted last, and that’s unfortunate. My life has taken many turns since September or so of 2012. Without doing a bunch of catching up, I’d rather just pick back up with creating content through sharing my insights and ah-has. Sharing is the least I can do. This post isContinue reading “Gratitude”

Strong Man, You Gotta Leave

In her famous song, Strong Man, The Rev. Shirley Caesar, a legendary African American Gospel singer, sings the following words: “There’s a strong man, in this house, with my spiritual eyes I can see, Just what this strong man, is doing to my whole family He’s got a grip on the feeble, and the spirituallyContinue reading “Strong Man, You Gotta Leave”

Own Your Stuff

I will preface what I’m about to post as such: I am a DIE HARD and ardent NC State Wolfpack fan. Oftentimes I have thought to myself, “they can do no wrong.” Period. I will admit, that sentiment can be reckless. I also, at the same time, value loyalty: to things/places, causes, and people (inContinue reading “Own Your Stuff”

Inspiration and Information

I have one of the best jobs on the planet. I am surrounded by people, for the most part, who are hell bent on improving themselves, and oftentimes the world around them. Students, faculty, staff, community partners; almost all of them approach life with possibility and positivity on the mind. Sometimes with this positivity, however,Continue reading “Inspiration and Information”

Take Your Medicine

Earlier this month I traveled to the beautiful twin islands of Trinidad and Tobago. Though the trip was amazing, its what¬†happened before I traveled that inspired this post. You see I still have my tonsils…which means that I am particularly susceptible to strep throat. I could take them out, but I have been told thatContinue reading “Take Your Medicine”

Be Unconquered, pt. 2https://drmichaelanthony.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php#

In the fell clutch of circumstance, I have not winced, nor cried aloud, Under the bludgeonings of chance, My head is bloody, but unbowed. In my continuing application of this classic poem by William Ernest Henley, I want to remind us all to wallow for a time in our self-pity…and then get over it.¬† HowContinue reading “Be Unconquered, pt. 2https://drmichaelanthony.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php#”
