Ed-vise Episode 108

Well HOWDY HOWDY HOWDY GOOD MORNING!!! to you all!! It’s a beautiful day for some more Ed-vise!!!

Today’s bit o trivia: Johannes Kepler. Know him? Doubt it. He was a Danish (not a pastry) but a physicist. Liked to look at planets and wonder if he could create some laws that would trouble future physicists. And so he did. Three of them to be exact. The Law of Ellipses; the Law of Equal Areas; and the Law of Harmonies. Thus once again proving the dangers of social media.

Anyway…

Monday Musings Ed-vise today

I listened to some Seth Godin on my drive to Seaside. Man! That man has some amazing wisdom. If you have not tuned into him, I highly recommend him.

What resonated with me had to do with a statement he made. It related to how he distinguishes between a professional and an amateur.

According to Seth, the professional delivers a higher standard. Consistent, I think. They deliver, consistently, on their promises. They wear the uniform (maybe), the symbol of being a professional. They do the things they do in a professional manner. For instance a lawyer often times is viewed as a professional. They deliver in a professional manner and are required to appear before the judge in suit and tie or other similar dress.

An amateur delivers more of their authentic self. Now, think about that. Think about your hobby (which is where you find amateur stuff primarily). Here, with your hobby, you deliver your authentic self. You love your hobby, you cannot wait to do your hobby. My hobby of carpentry looks as my authentic self. It is a work in progress (the final outcome) and I take the safety piece of it quite serious.

Chew on that difference between a professional and an amateur. It will up your game. I’m just saying

That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember ants never get sick because they have little anty bodies!!! HAHAHAHA….SNORT!!!

Peace
