There's been a lot of discussion lately about VIGOR vs. RIGOR. I even tweeted about it the other day. Some of the response tweets wanted to know what I meant, so I created the image above. RIGOR, by definition is rigid, severe, and strict. It reminds me of Rigor Mortis...not something I want to associate with learning and professional practice. I know I may be taking it too far outside of its intended context--but I still think VIGOR is a better word.
