Getting Ahead - Upgrade

About the time I get used to an operating system on my computer, I get a pop-up on my screen that an update is available. I have learned that the updates are not always the best option. There are things that I have to investigate.

This morning I was thinking back to my childhood. I started thinking of how bad it hurt when I would stand up under the kitchen table, and hit my head. I would grab my head and try not to cry but I usually did. Mom would rub my head, and put a cold wet cloth on the injured area, while telling me it would soon be better.If I hit my head real hard, a knot would come up.

Getting Ahead – A Condition of Readiness

There are some things in life that we can never be truly ready for but in most cases preparation makes something much easier to deal with. Early in life we learn that studying for a test at school gets us ready to take the test and pass it. Without that time of getting ready, we usually do not do well on that test and it will affect our grade.

On most Saturdays, and everyday except Sunday through the summer, my dad would give us work to do. It would usually take us no more than two or three hours to do the work but it seemed like an eternity because I had fun things I wanted to do.I wanted to play ball, ride horses, and build hide outs or tree houses. There were always things that I would rather do than work. However, there was not going to be anything else done until the work was finished.As I got a little ol...
