Elena commented on Polly Hill Intergenerational Daycare

Wow - this is breaking the "OpenIDEO internet" in terms of comments and support! The OpenIDEO Toronto Chapter is so grateful for having had the opportunity to work through your idea with you. We look forward to what's to come in the next few months. This movement that you've started is so inspiring - let's ensure to share any future implementation impact with the OpenIDEO network!
In the meantime, some food for thought: what would be the next three steps to an implementation of a pilot? What additional beneficiaries do you need to understand better to help this pilot come to fruition?

Amazing job, all around, Polly Hill!


Elena commented on Enabling gratitude habits within email and Slack

Dear Jenny and team,

What a wonderful initiative you got there - congratulations on pushing through with it and actualizing it! The wireframes made it quite real for me and I can totally see this as an implementable prototype!

In your description, you mention "The extension in my email inbox always reinforces this signal and is a visual reminder I see whenever I open my inbox." One thing I couldn't help but wonder about is our brains' desensitization to common signals in our environment with extended use overtime. An example of this has been witnessed with banner advertising (see a heat map of visitor eye focus here: It is possible that over time the constant Leapsome signals will be treated as default/baseline information and may no longer promote attention.

How might Leapsome gauge the appropriate context and learn when to prompt a user to provide some gratitude?

Overall, great work and good luck!
