If I say I know what I’m going to be writing about for the next 29 days, I will be lying. The truth is, really I don’t. Calling out the rest of this gang was simply a spur-of-the-moment reaction.
I don’t know what to write but I know how to write. I don’t even have a focus in mind, but I believe my fingers will bail me out as they’ve always done.
Speaking of fingers, it reminds me of everytime I come to this online space to drop a piece of my mind, as Facebook won’t stop asking. More often than not, I’m saved by the fingers.
Today, my thought line is this: has it been my fingers or my brain & mind are able to keep a repertoire of information along the sides in my daily interactions with people, books and life situations.
Interestingly, I was in a class yesterday and a fellow student asked this question on public speaking; “What about in situations where you can’t find illustrations at that moment to further explain a point, what can one do especially when it comes as a question?” And then I thought, I’ve never been caught off guard for longer than 15 seconds.
Thus, I always have a response. And I’ve never been said to be off course. How do I manage this? I’m a learner; now and always. I make sure my brain activity is never in coma. If I’m not reading, I’m listening. If not, I’m watching. Most of all, I’m a very perceptive person.
Consequently, I don’t exactly claim to be smart, but I like to think I’m intuitive. My system of knowledge is deeper than what I get from the outside.
With this, I can conclude today’s challenge by dropping an encouragement to you. Never stop learning. Never stop seeking out information; needful or not. When you’ll need it, you probably don’t know. If and when you do this for a long period of time, you will never be caught off guard. Your brain will always tick, like clockwork.
I’ll see you tomorrow. Meanwhile, happy new month. A new month comes every month, but February 2020 will always be new. May your newness never be common. Amen.
