I thought I would share this to give you some idea of how I learn and think. To give you a taste of my chaos, as it were.
These are notes I made from an online video, a German class that was online, and an online video on writing. Yeah, it is pretty all over the place. But the older I get, the more I realize that I am this way. And to make myself more logical would be a huge disservice to how I really learn.
I almost deleted this as soon as I put it up because it felt silly. But I pushed through. I hope you enjoy reading my notes.
What are the differences between the rich and the poor?
The rich pay themselves first. The Godly pays God first, and themselves second. But still, the main point remains.
The rich base their decisions on long-term rewards rather than instant gratification.
Rich people have several sources of income
rich people continually invest in themselves
the rich never blame but take full responsibility for their failures,
the rich don’t sleep in.
the rich have a clear vision or purpose
the rich make progress before entertainment
I recently started teaching myself, German. I found myself preferring to read out the words first, and sounding them out loud to myself. I took a few notes now and then to try to help build vocab in my head. But then I lost steam and started skipping. I know this was a mistake now.
Why did you decide to be a student, and what do you hope to gain from your studies?
Well, I love to learn for its own sake to begin with. And now that I am forty, I feel like I really need to dig in and learn as much as I can to better myself and be more employable and useful. I don’t have the energy of youth anymore so must use my mind to keep ahead. Besides learning is fun for its own sake. ^_^
write a million words, the very best you can. Then throw it away and turn your back on that work. Only then do you really began.
