#108 Lifelong Learning

Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.
– John Dewey

[See below for information about my new webinar series.]

Teaching provides an environment that constantly motivates me to learn. Every day—and I mean EVERY day—I learn something new.  Whether I have picked up a new book, a more effective strategy, or a better way to connect with the people in my world, I go to bed a different (and hopefully, a better) person.  That is powerful!

John Dewey reminded us that “education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.”  How very true.

What do you do to for your lifelong learning?  From whom do you draw new insights?  Do you continually question your assumptions about politics, career, community, and world events?

I have the good fortune and great opportunity to work with people all around this great nation of ours. From small workshops, to large keynotes, to multi-day training programs, I get to share ideas about academic, career, and life success strategies.

I am pleased to announce that I am taking this to a new level. On July 10 of this year, I will begin hosting my own monthly series of webinars.  I have (and still do) present webinars for other organizations. This will be, however, my first step into organizing, hosting, and delivering the webinars on my own. I could not be more excited. If even in a small way, this virtual platform will allow me to have an impact on a larger audience’s lifelong learning journey.

Except for a few final details, the first of the webinars is set.  Here is the information. I will post updates on my website (www.stevepiscitelli.com) and my social medial sites.  Mark your calendar now…and pass along the information.  I look forward to working with you.

TITLE: “P.R.I.D.E: Five Choices for Life Success”

FREE WEBINAR! This is the first webinar in my “Quick Hits” series—and I am offering it FREE to the first 100 people who register.  (There is a limit of only 100 people for this webinar. So everyone gets in free!)

ABOUT THE SERIES. My “Quick Hits” monthly webinar series will provide professional and personal development strategies that are practical and time-efficient. The webinars will be presented in 30-minute segments designed to provide strategies you can immediately use, and will include a call to action for you to implement what you have learned in the webinar. These webinars will help you put dreams into action so they can become reality.

THIS WEBINAR. “P.R.I.D.E: Five Choices for Life Success” will present a five-step model that has the potential to change lives. Examine what you can do to ignite or fan the flames of passion while living a life of balance and wellness. This engaging, energizing, and entertaining session will demonstrate how THE FIVE CHOICES place the power of action and change in your hands. Do you want a life of redundant mediocrity or remarkable consistency and growth? The choice is in your hands and in your hearts.

Participants in this webinar will:

1. Recognize if their priorities align with their actions–and if not, what to do.

2. Use a simple strategy to activate a positive habit (and leave procrastination in their past).

3. Examine how purpose and integrity reflect their six dimensions of well-being.

4. Establish a three-point action plan to apply any of the strategies learned in the webinar.
