Learning Styles

This morning my "learning style" came into focus. This will probably be a short blog today, but here it goes anyway. A coworker of mine looks for examples in everything. If "a+B" than you must do "c". For me I look for the concepts of how "a" can be used in general. So that when I run into a different situation (that is other than "a+B") I can reuse "a" or maybe "B" to get another result. I am not sure how to phrase it but I am a hands-on type of learner. I like to do whatever it is I am trying to learn so that my mind and mucles will have some recollection of the task at hand. I also will compartmentalize the individual tasks. And then when I am doing other related tasks, and perhaps run into problems I can draw from the individual task steps to help me learn ways to go around the problem. When I try and learn things from the book I get lost. I cannot seem to grasp overall concepts, but can file away individual steps to accomplish the overall assignment. I have found this to serve me well when needing to accomplish other things. My mind seems to be able to draw from those subtasks in order to solve apparently unrelated issues. I am not really sure what/why, and most likely this is confusing to most. Sorry about that... :) Verse for today: Psalm 28 esv To you, O Lord, I call; my rock, be not deaf to me, lest, if you be silent to me, I become like those who go down to the pit. Hear the voice of my pleas for mercy, when I cry to you for help, when I lift up my handstoward your most holy sanctuary. Do not drag me off with the wicked, with the workers of evil, who speak peace with their neighbors while evil is in their hearts. Give to them according to their work and according to the evil of their deeds; give to them according to the work of their hands; render them their due reward. Because they do not regard the works of the Lord or the work of his hands, he will tear them down and build them up no more. Blessed be the Lord! for he has heard the voice of my pleas for mercy. The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him. The Lord is the strength of his people; he is the saving refuge of his anointed. Oh, save your people and bless your heritage! Be their shepherd and carry them forever.
