“Be curious always, for knowledge will not acquire you; you must acquire it.” Sudie Back

How do you go about your quest for knowledge? Is it in a classroom, a book, a newspaper, writing, internet, Iphone apps, the crazy guy next to you on the bus, your toddler, your teenagers, lecture hall, NPR, your mother/father, CNN, the man with the microphone that preaches outside Old Navy in downtown Chicago, the produce manager to Jewel, your doctor, counselor ( camp or shrink)? Or all of the above?

I’m of the school of OJT at this point in my life. I’m a hands on learner…See one, do one, teach one school of knowledge. I was walking the other day post rain storm and looked at all the puddles I was trying to jump over only to see how beautiful the reflection was…as the sun came out. Lesson plan…never walk past a puddle again without checking out what is reflecting back at me. Never lose your childlike curiosity is key to gaining knowledge from the bottom up…be it planting a seed and watch it grow in a flower and a child. They both need nurturing, attention, love and nourishment.

1/3 book smarts. 1/3 common sense and 1/3 street smarts…heavy on the last 2! Knowledge is power…but let’s not forget how to treat one another and stay curious and present to all there is to learn from the world that surrounds us…not just in a classroom.

Go out today to get that “gold star” as a life long learner.
