How to be a great teacher

Teaching is knowing and doing. You noticed I added doing. Because effective teaching isn't in the words we spew but the tangible benefits students see in our actions from our teachings. Knowledge isn't real and effective knowledge unless it works in the world.

We need to be cognizant of it though. Reality -- whatever reality is -- probably isn't what we are thinking. What is reality is probably something else, especially how we are feeling at any particular moment. 
If the above is the case, we need to be very careful about making rash decisions that would negatively affect our lives permanently. Your default position must always be of great caution, to not cause harm if all possible, to not be mean if all possible.

First blog entry to how.how

First day of the 2018 year and the first blog entry of how.how. This will be a collection of rather humble things I learned and my goal is to post at least one a day, so you can expect that from me. I hope what I share will benefit you, yet this blog is at its core for my self-improvement. I want to learn something new each and every day, no matter how small. This is something I expect from myself.
