Five Minute Friday is a writing event that has writers spending five minutes writing on the same topic and then sharing them at http://katemotaung.com/five-minute-friday/. This week's word is Test.
Above are some of the books I have purchased to teach me things. Some come with online study guides and I feel like all of them come with tests. Will I learn the right things from them? Will they make a difference in my life? Will they be worth the money I spent?
The problem is, I won't answer any of those test questions right if I don't actually read them. Much like I learned from the first time I went to college right after high school, going to class and doing the work is the best way to learn. Unfortunately, I did not learn that lesson until 10-15 years later when I went to college a second time, but that's another blog post.
Anyway, I want to pass these tests. I want to delve into these books and learn things. I want to grow from the reading them and hopefully learn some of what the test of that has been the last nine years has been trying to teach me.
I'm hoping that these books and their study guides will help me determine how to achieve the best life that is waiting for me. I hope they teach me to apply the things I've learned from the tests to help others. And I hope by showing up and doing the work, I will pass future tests that come my way.
I promise to share what I learn so that you don't have to study so hard for your tests.
