The search for fulfillment..
What do you want to do with your life?
How do you define a happy and successful life?
These are some big questions. They are familiar questions, too. No doubt you’ve inquired the answers from another person, probably been interrogated yourself, and most likely rolled around in bed until 3am trying to solve these personal mysteries.
They are important questions.
For every time these questions have been asked, there’s 10 different answers that’ve been given.
Listen to books?
You don’t listen to books, you read books!
Unless perhaps you’re indulging in some hallucinogens.. Then maybe you’re listening to books.
No, but seriously when I say listen to books, it’s not a spelling error and I’m not on drugs – Korea doesn’t have any.
What I am talking about is listening to podcasts and specifically, audiobooks.
Creativity begins with understanding…
Note: this is another throw back post I wrote originally in early October
As you may know from previous posts, I’d been teaching my Korean Kindergarten kids about gardens. Among what they’d learnt was the concepts of digging and using shovels.
After my first month I have to admit I hadn’t done a great job of ensuring the kids actually understood what I’m teaching them. Granted, I am by no means a teacher so how could I even begin know how to gauge whether they were understanding or not.
You reading this and the parents of the children will probably be glad to know I’ve come a long way since originally writing this.
Is a healthy life the foundation for success?
I’ve always maintained that the consistent pursuit a healthy life is the foundation of success. Or a good life, in general. The more active you are, the better you fuel your body, and the more engaged you are in positive environments.. the more you are able to accomplish.
Whether that takes the form of waking up early to climb a mountain, spending time each day to write a book, or burning the midnight oil to expand your business, is up to you.
Butterflies & How to elevate yourself
THROWBACK NOTICE: I originally wrote this about a month and a half into my Korean Journey. Somewhere in late September, or early October.
I’m reflecting on yet another lesson with the Korean kids I teach, and seeing an analogy.
To think I laughed when my mother said I’d learn so much from these kids.
Early this week in one of the elementary classes I teach we were discussing caterpillars and butterflies. Previous to that it was bees. I masquerade as a science teacher, too.
