I’ve made progress, but not as much as I had hoped on the numbers scale. But, I’m not very good with self-assessing my progress with only three choices and two are absolutes. Tend to think about possible exceptions, which mostly leads to the middle when there’s only three choices.
But when I compare other factors, like how I’m thinking, feeling, and fleshing out many facets of my future and goals, it’s pretty evident that I’ve made some significant progress. Definitely have some noticeable difference in my confidence, and thinking around achieving my DMP goals. So we’ll see with some more time with the forward momentum. More growth to come? I expect so.
While things are about to wind down with this program for this session, I plan to continue to use these tools daily until I achieve all of my DMP goals. I now have the habits established and good flow. Got a ways to go, with much work ahead, but now it feels like “Subby” is pulling for me instead of against me.
This week’s Franklin makeover focus is specialized knowledge. There’s plenty around to notice.
Noted that one of my co-workers knew how to reset a piece of radio equipment that wasn’t communicating properly with it’s control system.
While watching a movie, a person knew how to remove a bullet, and stitch and dress the wound. Another, how to properly use a semi-automatic pistol. Someone else, how to drive a truck.
I was able to offer some ideas when asked for VHF radio antenna suggestions. (Seems like we all have some specialized knowledge!)
My wife displayed her cooking skills. I attended an Alaskan Indigenous Peoples Awareness Course and learned a bunch about native culture. Then, a webinar on how to remote control radio station equipment over the internet.
Discovered my friend’s wife is an Astrophysicist studying the cosmos, finding new asteroids, mapping pulsars. Had a conversation regarding cryptological material (for military encryption code / cypher gear.) More discussion about what to expect for a heart catheter procedure, and even teaching conversational English to interested Koreans. Sure is plenty to notice, and draw on…
