Adventures in Learning
You realize that you are not progressing as fast as you should in your professional career. You recognize there is a gap in your skills and experience. You have new information. It’s up to you whether you accept the status quo, or do something to change the situation. If you accept the call for a change in your life, you have the option to get help from someone like a mentor, or you could mentor yourself.

What makes a book timeless? It endures! And each generation enjoy it for the first time. Its key messages are still potent, like the day it was born to the world. The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum is like that. First published in 1900, The Wizard of Ozby L. Frank Baum is a children’s book. Dorothy is a young orphaned girl living in Kansas with her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry in a one room house. Her surroundings is very dismal, and the landscape is described as being grey, even her aunt and uncle have a tinge of grey to their colour. Despite this, Dorothy is happy, because her dog Toto is a source of much joy.
We’re Tipping Over! by Andy Feld is another spin on the law of attraction with a twist. There is nothing earth shattering about the book, but a reminder to us that we cannot approach and do things the way we have been accustomed to doing them.10 Big Ideas, The Wizard of Oz by L.
