When I first embarked on reinventing myself, I didn’t have many stories, insights, and lessons from the journey to reinvention. I often felt alone or like the crazy one that lost his way. However, that doesn’t have to be the case for you. Reinvention is challenging enough on its own, we don’t need to feel alone or like we have lost our way. This blog will help you learn from my experiences and those I have had the opportunity to learn from. This is the blog I wish I would have been able to follow and read when I first embarked on the journey to reinvention.
I just got home from watching an advanced screening of “The Way” (@theWaytheMovie) by Emilio Estevez, starring Martin Sheen. The movie, which opens this Friday, October 7, highlights the journey of Martin Sheen’s character through parts of Spain in his attempt to realize his son’s goal. His son, played by Emilio Estevez, died while beginning […]
A new service in development by a professor at Harvard attempts to redefine the way the classroom space is used. Let’s face it, information is cheap. I can find any information by searching for it on google or in a book. The classroom needs to do better than that and engage students in a higher […]
I think Maximus Decimus Meridius (Gladiator) puts it best when he says, “What we do in life, echoes an eternity.” However, if he were talking about personal and business brands, I think he would change it to: “What we do in personal branding echoes for eternity in our business brand.” Well, I suppose we will […]
A little over three years ago I left my corporate career in pursuit of a new path. At the time I wasn’t sure of the destination and even today I am not quite sure. Some might argue that is reason for concern and I would partially agree. At times, I get a little concerned. Perhaps […]
I have been playing soccer since I was 13 years old and absolutely LOVE playing the game. I play on a local team and game day is what I look most forward to each week. This past spring, just two games into the season, I dislocated my hip on my kicking leg (right) while practicing. It hurt. A […]
If you have ever put together a piece of furniture or completed a do-it-yourself project at home you have probably pulled out a toolbox and used your tools on an as needed basis. Perhaps you had to hammer a nail into a wall and located your hammer to do so. Every now and then though, you cannot […]
While working on a personal project I thought about all of the choices students face when selecting required and elective courses. For instance, students have to take a certain number of sciences to graduate college – but which ones do they choose? Students have spots for electives – but again, which do they choose? During […]
Over the last few days, I have had several discussions about the use of technology in education. Every time I discuss it, I form my argument around one central question, how can technology enhance the learning experience? I think it is important to look at it this way versus how technology might make the delivery […]
Read a great article about multi-tasking…which follows up an interesting neuroscience book I recently read that covered the topic as well. Studies and research show that the human brain is simply not wired for effective and efficient multi-tasking. The recent article I read in Psychology Today suggests it’s really better labeled task-switching. However, there are things […]
In this blog post I briefly discuss why math is so important to me and how it makes a difference in my life. Thanks to a couple of influential teachers and a lot of hard work, today I am able to enjoy the benefits of better logic and reasoning skills.
