My Experiences


“Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement."

       Experience and learning seems to happen in fits, stops, and starts.  Sometimes it seems one is going nowhere or even backwards. Other times there is steady, progress. And yet other times seem to be peak learning moments, when everything comes together. Such learning moments are often very memorable.  As people look back over their lives they often note their watershed learning experiences - their first kiss, love, death, achievements, etc. 
        Just prior to significant learning moments, one sits at the eye of the storm, having experienced the ups and downs and around, there is suddenly only pure curiosity and confidence in flowing with the task/problem/challenge.  This state may be experienced as flow (or optimal arousal).  In such moments, an individually is primed for discovering and developing a new understanding of a phenomena.  It is a "teachable moment".

Whatever ‘success' means to you, there are a number of things we can do to improve our chances.

  • where do you want to go
  • what you want to achieve
  • what you have to offer (skills, qualifications, strengths)
  • what employers are looking for
  • the skills and knowledge they need
  • where to start
