Are you learning by necessity and a curriculum you select for your life?
This week we’re back in school in Boston.

Well, I’m not back in school but my son is. He just transferred from one great school to another. From High Point University in North Carolina to Berklee College of Music here in Boston. And I admire Eddie so much for going after this. He wanted to be among the best musicians and resources in an environment that truly challenged him and so he made it happen, auditioned, was accepted with a scholarship, and now he’s just starting his next chapter of learning.

I asked myself, would I have done that? Am I willing to leave the successful familiar, in order to tap into the challenging unknown? And if so, what would that look like? For all of us, lifelong learning is a reality.

Sometimes it’s the school of hard knocks, tests of courage, and fortitude. I’m facing some of those right now; unpleasant requirements to honor my
commitments and responsibilities. But there’s also the school that we get to select.

If you could learn anything, and by the way, you can, what would it be? A year from now you could have a profound
new understanding or a skill that you don’t possess today. In five years, you can be a master of what is now just a
seed of ambition. What is it? And, understanding that the years will pass anyway, what can you do today to enroll?

Number One: Commit to a course. Get specific about exactly what you’re learning next.

Number Two: Choose your teachers. In person, in print, or online, decide who you admire study and emulate.

Number Three: Schedule your lessons. It only happens if it’s on your calendar with regularity.

Number Four: Decide on an end goal celebration. When will you graduate and what will that feel and look like?

Number Five: Show up for class. Learn intentionally, every day.

and then pursue your lifelong limitless potential for learning. Until next week, stay Off Balance On Purpose.
Whether it’s signing up for a class, or a personal course of study, let’s all go back to school. Decide what you desire
