I learned this idea from my friends at CTAP IV* in the SF Bay Area and now have adapted it for all types of occasions. At the end of a week-long institute, participants usually receive a certificate of completion. I also put together candy bags with a legend that explains what each candy means:

  • When you plan your vision, reach for a MILKY WAY.
  • When you do something great, give yourself a SMARTIE.
  • When you get resistance, give yourself a HUG.
  • When you feel like you’re drowning, grab a LIFESAVER.
  • When you know a smile makes a difference, take SNICKERS.
  • When all else fails, don’t worry, be CAREFREE.

I put the candy in a snack size zip-lock bag along with the legend on a piece of paper. Make sure you tell them what the candy means or they may eat it before they read the legend.

Co-Author Projects

Tag, You're It!

At a recent conference I attended, several speakers referred to ‘Tagging.’ They assumed everyone in the audience understood the term, and didn’t provide a definition. I gather it has something to do with Web sites, but could you explain what it means? Tags are single word descriptors used
