There is something that I need to talk about. I have noticed
that some students --not that many,thankfully -- have what I call
a "McD's attitude -- hot, fast, light, and forget about it
attitude about studying. They miss the "fun of learning".
Learning is not a "chore" -- it is your lifelong friend!
Learning is how you will have to live your life in this
fast-moving, picking-up-speed-society; Lifelong Learning is
a fact of life. Somehow, by 'hacking' away on a subject, I
develop a close, personal relationship with the subject. It could
be called "Zen"
or "at-one". This is the level that I want you to reach!
I want to do things 3 times, then 7 times more, improving
each time, researching, adding, innovating, perfecting!
Getting into it!
"critical thinking" -- I mean go deep, go deeper than you could
before. Dig into it. Find out, how the
construction of overlapping planks in Viking Boats created Air
Bubbles so the vessels appeared to "skim" over the top of
the water. Think about this on the molecular level,
the level of cutting transportation costs, and the level of how
superior tools extended one's reach. Go deep. Don't
skim like the Viking Ships! 100viking.
Taking charge of your learning = "Empowerment" = we
are 'in charge' of our lives, and the person 'in-charge' can
re-write the 'script for his / her life.'! Write a paragraph
of 'empowerment' for 100empowerment points.
