7 1/2 Habits of Highly Successful Lifelong Learners

Week 2 - Time for some self reflection...

Habit #1 - "Begin with the end in mind." I enjoy setting goals and evaluating my progress toward achieving them. It is very satisfying to check off new accomplishments and completed tasks. Sometimes, it is a little harder to stay on track with long term goals.

Habit #6 - "Use technology to your advantage." How can one keep up with this fast changing world of technology? Just when I think I'm coming along (tried ebooks, signed on with DSL, text message my girls...), multitudes of new possibilities hit the marketplace in one week. What's next after "blogging"? I'm sure this is just a baby step into this modern age of learning. I admire my retired, great aunt, who, at the age of 70, purchased her first computer and stepped into the relm of email communication. Way to go Aunt Betty!
I want to master this new communication format. I am so impressed by my coworkers who have seemed to navigate through the process with such ease. This is my very first post. Hooray!
