The school’s purpose and it’s shortfalls for our youth.

With today’s children growing up in a digital world. We have to ask ourselves, are they getting the necessary amount of useful knowledge that the will need to stay ahead in this new economy. They are being taught on a redundant course of material that just doesn’t fit into the mainstream lives we live. They are not being taught the things that matter in real life. isosceles triangles are not what they need to know how to calculate. Rather, they should be taught how to read and understand balance sheets and how to create income for themselves and add value in the marketplace. Children are bogged down with the old ways of “cookie-cutter” classroom teachings. There is no doubt that the curriculum is a failing formula that needs a huge revision. We will see if that can be done with the new legislature and the raise in pay for teachers. Time will tell and we wait patiently for this to happen. However, it cannot happen fast enough. We are the ones that should be teaching our children that hustle is what they need to learn along with how to get rich so they are able to take care of themselves and their community. That is what should be taught in school. And there need to be no second and third place trophies either. You either win or you loose. You are at a great advantage when you fail and children need to know that it is okay to fail and often. That is the greatest teacher of all. Children must have the confidence to be curious and not restrained from having an imagination. They all must learn to be creative and solve problems so that they are able to create a future for themselves by being aware of problems and always looking for a way to create a new solution. Let them learn and be creative. That is what they deserve.

Today’s business leaders and what they say our youth need to do to succeed.

Why kids today need to learn to work!

 

The problem we see with all the kids today is not that they are being treated differently is that the parents of these children are not neglectful or rely on passive parenting. However, they don’t understand that children are like little sponges that are constantly looking up tp their parents and peers as a source for information and we sure hope that it is good, better yet, great. The children of today have been shown one of two things. How the digital media and devices can and will get them instatanious results when beckoned. This is great. But, it creates a problem in our youth as well. It’s causing kids to become less patient and give up sooner than if they used to have to work for the desired outcome. Things in business and life, unfortunately, take time for them to come to fruition and we are seeing a lack of commitment from our youth on giving things time. We have been talking to a gentleman that employees that are of the millennial status. James is a young business owner that will be the first to tell you that the lack of having patience in our young and upcoming workforce is scarily lacking. He owns a company called “Dent Repair Edmond Ok.” He trains and employees people interested in restoring vehicles that either have a door ding or hail damage and reverse the damage to perfection while saving time and money for his clients. James explains – “there are a lot of skilled young men and women coming up in this new world of modern technology. We like having young, fresh, open minds available to us for a fast and effective team.” The thing we are having a problem with the most of is that these up and coming workers are always looking for the next shiny thing. That’s a huge problem for business’ today. They are costing business’ a boat load of capital while in the training process and then when they have been let down by the lack of instant success or gratification they receive from a google search or social media like.

We must help these young women and men to understand that you will have to work hard and always be willing to learn and push themselves to the limits while adding value to their employer so they may have a shot of having a successful career. When we onboard a few new staff that are of the younger crowd we are having to teach them the basics of working hard and helping them understand that there are great jobs out there but you  must give the job time before just up and quit after a month or two because they have not seen a significant pay raise in income. They are all too fast to forget that the business is very expensive to run and that they must provide tremendous value add to the company and increase cash flow to achieve the goal of additional income. The economy is ever changing and so are the ways we teach our children. Yes, you must still instill ethics and honesty into them. But we must also teach them to add value to their employer to create a good shot of having a fruitful career in this new day and age.

Happy New year and we hope you learned something from 2016.

This has been quite the year. We have seen the most violence in 2016. This has been quite the year. We have seen some of the most violent protesters against police, trump rioters that were outraged with the election outcome, and a negligent president that is trying to leave on a bad note while getting us in trouble with Russia. There is a time coming that is to be of great importance to us all in this great country. There is all too often overseen news and media that may be actually more important than the garbage that big media plasters on television. We have seen great advancements in space programs by Space-x. New and exciting ways of receiving your package when ordered online at Amazon and you’re never left without a ride utilizing Uber. We must remember to keep our eyes and ears open when looking at the world. There is far too much opportunity to miss the good this and help gain more knowledge of what you can do as a human being on this planet.. We should all involve ourselves with more positive and helpfulness of being more philanthropic. The knowledge is out there people. Just wake up and be alert and awake to the many blessings to come in 2017. Hope you all had a Happy New Years.

End of year Resolutions.

( Video lesson of the day )Alan Watts talks about how to achieve anything – We feel it is due to the reading of books and understanding one’s mind. Let him explain and you will see.

 

We are coming to the end fo 2016 now and we are sure to understand that 2017, the new year is a beautiful place that we will create, prosper, and learn the skill sets to propel us into the future of creative thinking and not passive living. The adolescent minds of our children have the best seat in the house consider they don’t have work rules and restrictions that cloud their minds and put them in disdain. We all know what it is like to have that yearning to learn sensation that is so strong that we can not focus on much else but the subject at hand.

Take a new iPhone for example. The masses rush to acquire this little device and then pay an astronomical amount for it. Once they have this little gem in hand it’s all that matters at that given point and time. They become so obsessed with it that they must figure it all out so they have it mastered. Most folks misunderstand that concept of obsessive learning. That is a great asset to have, but, it needs to be on more fruitful activities. The art of reading has become lost to its electronic counterparts that will scroll through the words of yesterday’s old dialogue. There are a plethora of old and new books that come out each and every day, either from retirement or a new spark is set off in some souls mind and must be in print to share with the world.

We are all to enamored with the electronic devices of today and forget to look up and understand that there is so much more to this thing called life that we must embrace. You must not mistreat time and think that there is an unlimited amount of it. No one is guaranteed a tomorrow and we shall understand this when we have talked to survivors of lost times demise. For now, go read something of some substance so you may fee the euphoric state of knowledge consumption and try to learn either a new word or a new way of thinking of things at least. Thank you and that is all for today.

 

Truthfully, Johhny.
