I know that education is the way forward. I talk about it often here, but here is my question: What are you doing right now to help your education move forward. Are you trying to fit education into your schedule or are you fitting your schedule around education? Truthfully, education is continual improvement that allows us to achieve our goals. It’s time to really use it to better your life and your career. You are in charge.
I guess everyone wants to be a winner and have something to show for their winning ways, or even second, third, or fourth place ways. I had a friend who used to buy sports trophies and would put them on his mantle. He mostly made up his winning ways and he would put them on display so people thought that he was a sportsman. This was before the internet.
Still trophies are cool to buy and give for local sports competitions and that’s what I do. I don’t think anyone could mistake for a sportsman anyways.
As some of you already know, I am into biking and have been constructing a bicycle trailer over the last couple of months. Finding a trailer hitch that works well with it has been a problem. For cars and trucks, it’s easy to go online and find discount trailer hitches, but it’s a different story when it comes to finding one for a bicycle. I think I’ll be making my own one soon enough. I just wish I could find a good one that works right for my Merida full size and my Dahon Folding bike.
They say nothing ventured, nothing gained. That’s true, but equally true is nothing ventured, nothing lost. Sometimes when you do something, you lose more than you could possibly gain.
I have been loading up on different tutorials lately. I am really interested in blacksmithing for some reason. I like the idea of making things from old steel costing me nothing but my labor. It’s a beautiful idea and with an arc welder, I could do some amazing things.
In case you were wondering, a blacksmith doesn’t just make horseshoes. They did make horseshoes back in the day, but they made many other things. Just about anything that could be fashioned out of steel and iron, like tools, knives, plows and nails, if they needed to. There is a simple beauty to simple construction and it does interest me so much.
I am wishing that I could go ahead and start up a forge today! I think it will have to wait until this summer. The point is that I am willing to learn and willing to make at least one change on a new trajectory.
