Daily studies, Stories and Time in the Field

Once again I find myself with a sore right ankle, but decided once again to not miss a workout. I am pushing and pulling my chest muscles to a point of near exhaustion. My body weight is increasing and my blood sugar has stayed in a higher range, but I have made the decision to try to work through this. I will continue to work this way until I feel that my ankle is healed and I can resume cardio exercises.

consistency_quoteAfter some research on study patterns and some great advice from several readers I have decided to dedicate 3 study sessions of no longer than 20 minutes in duration each morning. This will allow for breaks in between to workout and really think about what I have just studied. During my working hours I will seek out seasoned professionals to talk with about the things I have studied and hopefully hear real life stories about these things. It will be both the combination of reading, listening and actually applying these things that I learn that will bring me to a point of knowing. Like any other career field it is always time and dedication that leads us to become expertise in what ever we do.

Each day I will make an attempt at writing a small post will simply allow me to express what ever is on my mind at the time, but will save any details about other things for the weekends when I have more time to write.

  1. Keep working on what you know works for you! The greatest form of permanence we can gain in this world comes to us through repetition.

  2. Great planning/practice! I love the focus #needmoreofthattoo #inspiring

    Good Morning….how true at some point it will all fall in place for you, and then from then on you can only add to your knowledge, love you good plan…I wish I would of been smart enough years ago to know when to close the books and walk away…I used to study till my eyes were bleary…and in retrospect I don’t believe that I learned anything for all those long hours…I used to do memory studying, especially when I was learning a song on the piano…I would learn it from memory instead of reading the music….pissed my teacher off to no end…LOL have a good day….is it raining up there???
