define disjuncture

You know it's the right time to learn when there's disjuncture:

The optimal “zone”— when time seems to STOP
When our repertoire is no longer able to cope with our situation . .
Tension with our environment
Establishes a foundation for real learning.

About Me

My photo

I prefer to be called Carter, though I have grown accustomed to answering to most any variation that remains respectful.
I learned from the UPS manual that a leader does not need to remind others of authority by use of title. Knowledge, performance, and capacity should be adequate evidence of position and leadership.
