Gurl, I've Got Much to Learn

I'm overwhelmed! Took a new job within a new career field with a LARGE U.S. Government agency. Gurl, I've Got Much to Learn!

For the past 3 weeks, I've struggled to learn the systems, lingo, amd the jargon. Again, Gurl, I've Got Much to Learn...

Finding the Sweet Spot...

This, as with all things new, requires a rewiring of the brain in order to achieve learning mastery.  Lecturing and study ain't enough; it also requires a wee bit of rote repetition. Remember the Air Jordan commercial, Just Do It?

Some of my concern for mastery stem from fear. Fear of embarrassment, fear of looking foolish...fear of failure. While conceding that fear can be motivational, at times, I think y'all will agree that fear is a negative multiplier. That is, fear feeds upon fear.

Here's my prescription to myself for myself. Just Do It!
