Healthy Learning

 “Broaden your definition of learning.”

 “Refine your existing skills. Are you already good at fly fishing? Computers? Teaching? Playing saxophone? Hone these skills and take them to the next level…. Try new things, both inside and outside your preferred skill areas.”

It’s Back-to-School Time!  Do we remember the anxious excitement and anticipation of that first day of school?  Seeing friends again after a summer vacation, a new outfit, new lockers, new teachers?  The list goes on and on!  Oh, the enthusiasm of youth!

Remember:

“There is no end to education.  It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education.  The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.”  Jiddu Krishnamurti, international speaker and lecturer. 

What you learn is part and parcel of who you are.  Keep in mind that your successful life is an on-going process:  “How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.” 

Each day in our lives, we are given the opportunity to LEARN – from books, from programs, from experiences, from each other!  Recognizing (with that excitement and anticipation of youth) the potential to look at each new day as an opportunity to learn, to grow, and to appreciate the individual we are is KEY to our happiness and success!

We appreciate you all!  You continually teach us.  Thank you!

Sydney Harris (writer, drama critic, teacher, and lecturer) once wrote, “The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows.”  In other words, education lets us see not just who we are, but our possibilities!

Still Your Choice


Doctor045
The past is history, the future is a mystery, today is a gift – that’s why they call it the present….We may not be able to do exactly what we love at the present time, but any of us can choose to love what we do.  We can bring our best qualities to work – it is our choice!

– From the book, FISH! by Stephen C. Lundin, Harry Paul, and John Christensen

The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That’s the day we truly grow up.
