That they are focused on my needs/interests as a professor, from one who knows. I tend to read through them quickly and move them to an electronic file or if there is something especially valuable I need to think about NOW I may print them out and highlight them.

My message was a “thank you” for your TTPT’s for Professors, especially this week’s. It was so on point for me, and I learned things that never occurred to me. Since I am distracted more than ever before as a new department chair with so many interruptions and new responsibilities, your tips helped me understand my dysfunction. I realize that I must take steps to gain control of my work load. I have had many embarrassing consequences, such as grammatical and structural writing errors (You’re so right!), among other mistakes, because of my disorganization.
