One more old beat down gig to finish before I switch to the new business model. After a year and a half, I will have purged the last legacy loon off of the list. The new business model calls for a higher starting point and a return to more product-based method. One of my biggest bad decisions was putting product on the back burner for so long as the service end was doing so well. Personality type-wise, I make things. I’ve always been a creator to a MacGuyver level were I can make anything out of something else.
I made a casual comment to my son who then asked me the difference between being alive and living. He understood my answer. But talk is talk without the effort to actualize.
Just as one learns by doing, you do by doing. You should be learning as part of the process. That does not mean you don’t do research. That’s part of the doing. Education is to bring out the power that is already in you. You have the energy, the ancestral knowledge, then you are to merge it at with practical application and information to where it becomes your knowledge through routine. That’s the discipline.
