I watch YouTube videos of seth Godin most days. I’ve seen just about all of the important ones. He makes word pictures of marketing and philosophy. He describes it so well that he is in control if the ideas he conveys.
When I’m helping a soldier my hands flutter around, I make a lot if markings, arrows, circles and underlines. I try not to give them too much time between receiving the message and taking action because I know this skill I’m teaching is only useful for now and only useful for one purpose, getting a job.
With my daughters I can take days to convey an idea through stories, activities and play. These skills will guide their life so that they will never need anyone like me.
I’m trying to teach myself out of existence because there are so many things out there to learn. Plus I’d like to be able to one day draw the superhero in my head that guided me out of many nightmares.
