Dung Duong talks with me about his book - Shifting Optics: A Life in Perspective. Awesome talk! Dung has a wonderful outlook on life! This is episode 329 of Teaching Learning Leading K12.

Dung Duong is an entrepreneur, investor, and optic engineer who’s dedicated to making our world a better place. He supports his wife’s nonprofit, Perspective Charity, which works to give children the opportunity to become impactful doers, contributors, and leaders regardless of their economic or social situation. Dung wrote this book for his three children—Anastasia, Athena, and Radiant—in the hope that they find comfort, snicker at the infinitely bad jokes, and get a different perspective.

As a child, Dung Duong fled a third-world country, lived in refugee camps, was jailed, and found himself homeless before immigrating to the United States, ultimately growing up in poverty. A strong student and gifted engineer, Dung eventually found success as an entrepreneur and investor. In telling his full story, Dung doesn’t dwell on what he lacked in his youth. Instead, he focuses on what he did have: intrinsic motivation, a strong will, and the desire to positively impact the world.

Perhaps, like Dung, you also have a desire to make the world a better place.

In Shifting Optics, Dung shares his stories and honest recollections so that you can take from them perspective, if you wish. Told with a wink and a smile, he offers up his life’s story to show there is always a light in the darkness, there’s always a tomorrow, and there’s always a way to move forward and improve the world in our own unique way.

Lots to learn today!

Dung was fun to talk with. I think you will have a good time listening!

Houston Kraft talks about his book - Deep Kindness: A Revolutionary Guide for the Way We Think, Talk, and Act in Kindness. This is episode 328 of Teaching Learning Leading K12.

Houston Kraft is a speaker, facilitator, kindness advocate and according to his Twitter account - a professional hugger.

Houston’s job is to practice kindness. In high school, he started an organization called Random Acts of Kindness, Etc. (R.A.K.E.) to create a more connected, compassionate campus. 

In college, he created Our Kindness with a focus on service, community building, and reducing anxiety through intentional acts of care. 

Over the next eight years, Houston spoke at over 600 schools, organizations, and events globally to over a half a million people. He has spoken in over thirty states, Mexico, Canada, and Uganda. In 2016, Houston co-created Character Strong, which provides curriculum and training for safer and kinder schools and has already worked with 2,000 schools internationally, serving over one million students with their message, daily. In 2019, Houston was featured by Lay’s for their Spreading Smiles campaign.

He has been featured on the Huffington Post and highlighted by the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation. His messages about character, leadership, compassion, and kindness resonate with audiences age 5 to 95.

Houston is the author of Deep Kindness: A Revolutionary Guide For the Way We Think, Talk, and Act in Kindness with a 30 Act Starter Plan, Journal Prompts, and Practical Exercises.

DEEP KINDNESS is a call to action, beckoning us to a deeper understanding that calls readers to move past the surface level ‘confetti kindness’ marked by cutesy phrases and empty gestures. Instead, Kraft reveals, deep kindness is an ever-growing skillset rooted in empathy, perspective-taking, resilience, courage, and forgiveness. Featuring a 30-act starter plan, journal prompts, and practical exercises, DEEP KINDNESS dives into the types of kindness the world needs most today, taking an honest look at the gap between our belief in kindness and our ability to practice it well.

His online classes on Coursera and edX have attracted over 100,000 participants from around the world.

These contributions earned him the Aspen Institute’s Faculty Pioneer Award.
