The Mindful Enthusiast

How can we prepare our minds to more efficiently gather and analyze data, thoughtfully synthesize results, and build stronger and more meaningful partnerships?

In my opinion and experience?  Meditation is key.

The MINDFUL Enthusiast is a space for me to build some connections between mindfulness (one of my other passions) and program evaluation.  I think clarity, patience, and spaciousness of the mind have helped me become a stronger evaluator, more creative report designer, and better listener to clients and colleagues.  Each of these pages includes some resources, activity ideas, and my thoughts on how each one strengthens effective evaluation practice.  Check back regularly, as I plan to update them often and write some blog posts on the topic as well!
