Gratitude, a Special Offer & Quote for the Week
Since this week marks the beginning of the holiday season, I want to take a moment to share my gratitude to everyone who has supported my work here at Agents of Change.
This month marks the two year anniversary since I kicked things off with my post and invitation, “We are all Agents of Change.” Your subscriptions and participation through comments & post shares all play a role in helping to grow this community.
Below are some ways to further support my work over the holiday season — and continue to grow the community of changemakers in the process!
Supporting Agents of Change
For the next couple of weeks, I’m offering 20% off annual paid subscriptions.
So it’s a great time to upgrade to the paid option and start receiving the full benefits of Agents of Change.
Paid subscribers receive all my podcasts episodes as well as access to downloadable worksheets, tools, and strategies. More features for paid subscribers are planned for the year ahead as that community continues to grow.
Or consider giving the gift of a paid subscription to a friend, colleague, or fellow changemaker who you believe would benefit from being a part of the Agents of Change community.
Agents of Change also has group discounts for additional support for student groups, changemaker communities, departments, and kindred staff.
Consider Joining the “Slow the F*ck Down” Campaign this Holiday Season
Last week I launched the “Slow the F*ck Down” campaign as a way to further encourage you to embrace and celebrate the power of slowing down.
If you are feeling like the end of the year is tumbling towards you at a breakneck speed and you are having trouble pausing to catch your breath — this campaign is for you.
This is a visual manifesto to resist the relentless speed of overwork, prioritize your own self-care, and embrace a more human-centered pace.
Consider giving a gift of a “Slow the F*ck Down” shirt or mug this holiday season, and be a part of the movement to prioritize care and well-being.
It's time to slow down, and put these words into action in a deep & meaningful way.
Gifting Museums as Agents of Change
My book, Museums As Agents of Change: A Guide to Becoming a Changemaker, addresses the vital questions and the work we need to do to become effective changemakers in museums and cultural institutions. As I write in my book, we must demand that our museums take action toward positive social change and bring people together to proactively shape a new future.
This book is available at Rowman & Littlefield for a 30% discount by using the code RLFANDF30 at checkout
If you have a book lover in your life, I hope you’ll consider this book as a gift for the holiday season.
A Quote to Reflect on this Week
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I love a good quote, so here’s one from Atomic Habits author James Clear that was recently shared in his newsletter.
I’ve been thinking about it a lot as I reflect all the ways that I myself can Slow the F*ck Down. I hope it’s useful to you too:
At some point, you will have to learn to let go.
There is an endless list of obligations and expectations, desires and ambitions, and worries and fears that will always be ready to insert themselves between you and the feeling of peace.
If you never learn to let them go, there will never be enough
