Our growth depends not on how many experiences we devour, but on how many we DIGEST. -Ralph W. Sockman

There can be no happiness if the things we BELIEVE are different from the things we DO. -Freya Stark

Cognitive dissonance.

Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through FIDELITY to a WORTHY PURPOSE. -Helen Keller

We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing HOW to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out. -Ray Bradbury

This is what digesting means: reflection. How do you reflect on your experiences for the sake of growth?

This is how we change our beliefs: practice. Learn. Action.

Do you want to know who you are [including knowing your beliefs]? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you. -Thomas Jefferson

This is how we gain fidelity to a worthy purpose: first we need to know what is a worthy purpose. Follow what you love. Be careful about what we consume. Err to action. Serve others.

Seeing much, suffering much, and studying much, are the three pillars of learning. -Benjamin Disraeli

What actions will lead to growth?

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. -Marcel Proust

Experiences can help to shape you as a person as well as help shape your vision, which can help you to shape your future.

Greatness and nearsightedness are incompatible. Meaningful achievement depends on lifting one’s sights and pushing towards the horizon. -Daniel Pink

Technology that encourages contemplation and reflection. I think that is really what I would like see. It seems like so much of the popular technology focusses on impulse. Not all technology is that way, but I have not seen a lot of technology that focusses on contemplation and reflection except for things such as meditation podcasts or quiet typing or something like that.

I have an idea that I would like to implement that combines Life Tracking with Learning. Everything in life will likely have some effect on learning. So it is interesting that we put learning into a box and call it school… or a course/class… or something like that. I think it would be interesting to quantify and qualify experiences to bring meaning to learning. In the past, the only way to keep track of learning is in your brain. In many ways, that is no longer the case. It is so easy to pull up Google and type in a search term to get information. My idea may be something like a Google compiler for your life experiences. Instead of getting search results that are totally new to you, you would gain results from the things that you have experienced in some way in the past. This could also be good as you use this data to make some meaning to all of your experiences. You cannot connect the dots looking forward only looking back. Instead of looking at single experiences, you could use this tracking to look at the compilation of experiences that could have some computer intelligence or human intelligence applied to it. Your brain is not as concerned with remembering your past experiences, but could focus on the meaning behind these experiences. Possible applications to this meaning could include people to connect with, possible opportunities to take advantage of, courses of action to pursue. These could relate to creating a meaningful life and career for yourself as well as using your interests and skills to solve problems and create value.

I didn’t realize I can write more than one post a day. I don’t know why I didn’t realize that… I guess it makes sense.

I was first hired as a staff assistant in the internship office at the Huntsman School of Business in 2010. When I started I thought this would just be a job I would have while I finish my graduate degree, but I have enjoyed the university environment much more than I could’ve imagined. Since being here, I have worked in various roles in the Huntsman School and I am now working in Career Services (part of Student Affairs) as a Career Coach. I really enjoy working with students, helping them to progress in their careers. Communication is an important part of any well-functioning organization and I look forward to the opportunity to serve in the USU Employee association in this capacity.
