Dear Son, Repetition Is The Mother Of All Learning

  1. I see your pinky swear and I double dog dare you to be interested, excited, motivated, anxious and, dare I say, trusting!


  2. Washing the dishes, folding the laundry, vacuuming the floor…. yes…. repetition is for the mother of all learning.

  3. I was going with opposites, jeff.

    Bored – interested
    Tired – excited
    Demotivated – motivated
    Complacent – anxious
    Cynical – trusting


  4. Each day I go to work, we review using the microwave. There is a great sense of accomplishment for my client and for me when the correct procedure is followed. We review everyday, just to make sure we know how. It’s a highlight.

  5. Patty, I get exactly what you’re saying, although I’ve never lived through it up close and personal. God bless you for the work you do to care for others.
