Today’s Going To Be A Great Day…
I am in Asheboro NC today after finishing up a planning session with the local manager yesterday. I’m not sure I’ve ever talked about what it is that I do so here goes a quick snapshot.
I work for the largest daily print media company in the U.S. in the marketing division in the southeast. I started off as a digital marketing account executive in June 2016 and was promoted to a regional manager position at the beginning of this year.
I travel the southeast helping our marketing people understand how to be more professional and better at the sales call process in order to help local businesses get more customers. I’ll go in to a property and assess their skills and goals and then help them get better.
It’s a fun job and might be the perfect position for me with a little travel and an ever-changing working environment. I like being in a different city each week and I enjoy working with different people every day.
Today I will be doing a pop-in surprise visit to review some training from last week and to check progress on a few accounts. After this visit I will be in the car driving to Gastonia, NC (about 2 hours) to finish up a few things there and then back to Charlotte.
I hope that whatever today brings, you find yourself in a good mood, grounded and focused! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

What do you/did you do for a living?
the fear in your head
You water it with thoughts of other people
that you don’t even know exist
You cultivate its soil with the future failures
that you already predicted
It then grows branches that reach your heart
which beats and beats faster
You try to stop them from sprouting
But the fear
with the words
Ever feel like you have lost your way? I felt like that from about age 35-44 and it didn’t seem as if there was light at the end of the tunnel. This blog helped a lot. Reinventing myself in my current profession helped as well.
When I first started my blog I had an incredibly specific mission to grow my page to a large following. I’m not sure why I thought this was the best measure, but it was the only one I knew so I set it as my goal. I’ve almost reached the number of followers I wanted way back then, but now I’m lost again.
I’m not exactly sure what my mission is now.
I love the interaction and I’ve even rediscovered the joy of reading other pages again and I’ve started reaching out to new bloggers much like I did in my early days of blogging. But sometimes it feels like I wake in the morning, grab the laptop and start typing. And I do so just to type.
There doesn’t seem to be any reason behind the typing other than to hit publish. Sometimes it feels empty.
Have you ever felt like this?
I was getting ready for church on Sunday morning when suddenly my husband came in and said, “There’s a bat in the house.” Thinking that surely I couldn’t have heard him right, I repeated what he had just said to me.
I followed him out into the family room, and sure enough, there was a bat flying around in there. We closed off the doors into the dining room and hallway to keep him contained and keep the dogs out, and set about trying to catch him. My husband grabbed my lightweight blanket that I keep out there, and whenever he got close to the bat, he would throw the blanket, trying to cover it and knock it to the ground. In the meantime, I stationed myself over by the kitchen area with a towel and whenever it came my way I’d flap the towel to try to steer it…

The way we learn has changed drastically over the last decade or so. I consider myself fortunate for having access to so much high quality learning material with very little effort. I am a physicist by training but have been teaching Mathematics to engineers for quite sometime now. There are many lines of thought on how Math should be taught to engineers. Three main views are
(1) Teach in the usual lecture, problem solving style with a lot of emphasis on concepts, rigor and formal methods.
(2) Classroom teaching in an intuitive manner with lots of games and real life examples involved.
(3) Teach Math hands-on while students work in the lab on real life projects.
A proponent of the first method is the well known computer scientist Djikstra He holds the view that learning formal methods without interpreting the symbols is a great way of preparing students to work…
