“If you don't know how to do something, figure it out.” – My Dad
In my younger years, I spent a lot of time breaking things. I took things—mainly electronics—apart just to see how they work. Then, I try to put them back together. This was fun for me. I loved figuring out how things worked by tearing them apart.
Learning how everything worked in my daily life was a quest of mine. I enjoyed going to the library—before Google—to check out how-to books. I read about drawing, painting, crafts, model building, etc. Anything I had a passion for.
Today, is no different—I still do quite a bit of reading. I learned how to make websites, apps, children's books, and even how to apply makeup (thanks to Michelle. * Not on myself of course). I do a lot of reading and listening to podcasts.
“Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.” – Bruce Lee
Learning is what I'm great at. My dad was a teacher, so it must be genetic because I always have this desire to teach, to share what I know, and to inspire. Learning gives me life—it gives me a purpose.
Don't stop learning. The moment you do, is the moment your life is over. Keep inspiring and keep sharing. You'll touch more people with the gift of knowledge more than you know.
Apply your knowledge.
