Freewheeling Friday

I have about 32 half-formed blog posts in my head, but not a single one is quite ready to come out in its entirety. Apparently, I expect these things to spring from my forehead in the same manner in which Zeus produced Athena. In any case, thoughts are a-swirlin’. Here are a few of them for your consideration; I’d love to start a conversation around any of them, so please┬ácomment away.

It never ceases to amaze me how much I can learn from watching other people.

Mentoring someone is way harder than being mentored.

Modeling and teaching often go hand-in-hand or even overlap, but each is a distinct methodology.

I learn new languages all the time. Some of my more recent conquests are the languages of road cyclists, building planners, and middle school girls. I’m still working on not-for-profit committees.

“That’s the way we’ve always done it” is a poor excuse.

People can change. They either will or they won’t.

Human touch is underrated and disappearing quickly. It shouldn’t be reserved for intimate situations; incidental contact isn’t a bad thing.

Know thyself, and use your parameters to maximum effect.

I like the ritual of coffee even more than the coffee itself.

I still don’t like to wear pink.

  1. “That’s the way we’ve always done it around here” is in direct opposition to “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” The difference? The first one means you took something at face value (which can be good or bad depending on the situation). The second one means you’ve looked at other ways/reasons and there was nothing to improve it. But I hate when they are both used on me without any description as to why!

  2. The idea of people changing or they won’t…in what ways? In the physical, the mental, the attitude, what slant are you trying to zero in on here? There’s a lot in that sentence. I like the way the physical changes MAKE mental ones, whether or not the physical change is anticipated. Go with it girl.
