Instead, we’re going to attempt to harness the collective intelligence of the Stew to create a list: Ten Pearls of Hard-Earned, Work-Related Wisdom.
Here’s how to participate:
1. Send me your wisdom. Your pearls can be emailed to me: firstname.lastname@example.org. Subject line: Hard-Earned Wisdom. You will receive a confirmation from me within 24 hours.
Rules: 100 words max, per pearl. No limit on the number of pearls each person can submit. Only entries that have not been published elsewhere are eligible.
Deadline: Midnight PST on November 15, 2015.
2. By November 22, 2015, I will select 10 pearls of wisdom to publish in the form of a list. Each contributor will be cited, unless you choose to remain anonymous.
3. The usual $200 prize will be distributed among the writers of the top three pearls. $100 for Pearl #1. $60 for Pearl #2. $40 for Pearl #3.
Note: Thanks to Michael T Heath for inspiring this round’s prompt.
