While running this morning, I listened to a Hidden Brain podcast on cognative dissonance. I learned to make a public statement so I’ll feel compelled to do something to match my statement.

I’m going to get my cholesterol and blood pressure into an ideal range. And if I can do it, so can you.

Although I have many years of formal education, most of what I've learned has come from experimenting and trying to solve problems on my own. Once an idea for a project is set in my mind, it is all-consuming and one must learn everything possible about the subject on the way to the outcome. For learning is more than reading books and spoken word, it is hours of frustration, trial and error, and one sudden flash of insight when the world magically makes sense. It is during this moment when I am truely alive.
