It’s been a very stimulating weekend so far. I’m getting a lot of help from all of you in ignoring my new “empty nest syndrome” — I don’t have the time to succumb to it! ”Zach’s call home Friday night really helped too :-) ” When he talks about what his new college environment is beginning to gel as for him, I get very energized myself.
I hope you have decided to ho‘ohana with us this month. Our Ho‘ohana on Lifelong Learning is starting to strike a chord with people and I’m cheering! This month is going to be fun, and isn’t that what learning should be?
Stephen Covey devotees know of his 7th Habit, Sharpen The Saw; It is the habit of self-renewal. Phil Gerbyshak of Make it Great! shares with us how he’s interpreted this habit for his own journey with continuous learning.

Start a Learning List for yourself: Just write down all the intriguing ideas coming your way this month, and something will start to emerge as your first pick before you know it.
