    Learning Leads to Power. Use It Wisely!

    Oh yes, learning can lead to power.  I had an instructor and mentor that told me that Knowledge was POWER. I have since seen this on motivational posters and business literature.  It is very true.  Not just in the application of a job or career, but in the...

    Hurrah!

    Every day I actively seek to learn something new, like the projected shape of the 4d analogy of a sphere, or the common causes of landslides, or the reason people think semiconductors are sooo cool. What saddens me is that I still have no tertiary qualifications, nor am I...

    "I Don't Know. What's That Mean?"

    Or "what's that?" I love those questions!  I find so many people pretend to know something that they don't understand for fear of appearing stupid.  What's stupid is not allowing yourself learn because of that fear! If I don't know, I will ask!  I...
