Both have given lessons to other people and both of them have played and led the worship services at my hometown church for years, heck, decades now. You get the point. Loads of talent. Continue reading “Get Back Up”
My wife and I made a decision, about 7 or 8 years ago, that we would home school our children. That decision has been met by a myriad of differing opinions (not that it is the business of anyone but us) in regards to this decision. Many people have been in support of this decision, as homeschooling tends to produce a unique type of brain that scores higher on standardized testing (look up the studies in these regards if you don’t believe me). Others criticized our decision based on their belief that our children would fall behind their peer group or become socially retarded because they grow up in a bubble.

I had an interview for a job this morning that I think went fairly well. I have already received an invitation for a second interview and will be moving forward with that soon. However, that is not really the point of today. What I wanted to get at here was something that come up during the interview.

At this point, you are ready to just sit back and attempt to put what you have already learned to use. Continue reading “Learn Some New Skills”
I was reading this article a couple of days ago and felt that it would be appropriate to share over here. We focus so much on making the right moves and best decisions that we often overlook the benefits of the mistakes that come as well. Chris Brogan unpacks his mistakes and why it is okay to make them. How can we learn from our failures?

At this point, I think I have sufficiently covered the importance of continuing on in your education. The only argument that an individual could pose for not continuing to learn is that they simply do not want to or see no value in it. However, for those who are interested in bettering themselves, a daily feeding of the brain is an obvious part of your schedule. Continue reading “Read Your Bible”
I remember being told once that the best way to learn something is to actually teach it to others. This seems to go against logic a bit. We tend to believe that we must master something before we teach it to others but this article that I read on Duct Tape Marketing seems to confirm the statement a little more. Continue reading “The best way to learn is to teach…”
