William Glasser suggests this is the way we learn, and more importantly, retain information, yet his ideas, which focus on personal choice, personal responsibility and personal transformation, are considered controversial by mainstream psychiatrists.

What all of us can consider not controversial, is the simple fact that we are born, we live and learn, and then we die.

What and how we do it, and the impact we make, is up to us. Period.

Midlife ABC News

Last August, I spent a week in Finland and never turned the TV on until 2:00AM, an hour before I left.  It’s like every time I travel. I just never watch TV.

But I sure do put some milage on the Internet.  And that’s how I found this surprisingly insightful midlife broadcast.

ABC News did a feature with Nancy Anderson, author of Work With Passion In Midlife and Beyond.

How do you know if you have passion?  If you clicked the link, you probably have passion, and a desire to learn something.

Tell me.

Show me.

Involve me.

Common sense is hardly common practice.

Mid-Life Learning

Mid-Life Learning.  We got to mid-life and became who we are at mid-life, by many things we learned as a child.


If children live with encouragement, they learn to be confident.

If children live with praise, they learn to appreciate.

If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.

If children live with acceptance, they learn to find love in the world.

If children live with recognition, they learn to have a goal.

If children live with sharing, they learn to be generous.

If children live with honesty and fairness, they learn what truth and justice are.

If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those around them.

If children live with friendliness, they learn that the world is a nice place in which to live.  — Dorothy L. Nolte
