Self Improvement


I am consistently curious and believe that knowledge and information is powerful. I went through a season where I studied and read a lot. What I learned from this season of study, among other things, is that "doing and failing" should make up a larger part of your learning experience than studies alone. So, although I am still reading and studding as much as I can, I have moved my focus to creating and learning as I need to.
