Blackboard Lessons

I try to live my days learning something every day.

I will be the first to admit that I often have to learn a lesson I have already learned.  Then conveniently forgot about because it’s too difficult to be spot on perfect all of my life and I easily fall back in to life long  habits.  So yes, many lessons, I learn often.  You may say “re-learn”.   But I apparently didn’t learn it well or at all, so I have yet to really learn it.

I sometimes wonder if I shouldn’t install a black board of the old school variety and return home to write 50 times my lessons for the day.  Or writing 200 times when I did something I shouldn’t have.    I do believe in repetition.  Doing things repeatedly will show better benefits.  It works with weight lifting, multiplication tables and maybe with life lesson learning:

I will not jump to conclusions.

(Do you think copying and pasting this is the equivalent of writing it out fifty times?  If not, I probably have another lesson to learn in here somewhere…..)
