Greg Secker Speaks on the Importance of Thinking

Greg Secker talks about a lesson that he has learned. He talks about thinking in an interview. At some point in his career, he has met someone who has stated that if one is working, then he is not thinking. This word has struck Greg Secker as something worth thinking about. He has thought long about it and found that it makes a lot of sense. He has seen that when he is working, he is not thinking about what he can do to make improvements. Therefore, he has made it a point to take some time off to do some thinking.

One of the best benefits of this approach is that people who take the time to think tend to come up with some new ideas. However, there are times when people are in a hurry to take care of an ongoing issue. The sad part is that this can burn a person out mentally and physically. Once he gets to the point where he can’t think, then his work is going to suffer. Greg Secker stresses the importance of taking time off to think and replenish. This is one of the reasons that Greg Secker is so successful.

It is important to maintain balance in life so that goals can be more easily reached. Even for entrepreneurs, there needs to be a time to rest. Otherwise, the person will burn out even of the work he enjoys.

Greg Secker takes on the Forex market and does more than trading Forex. He thinks about the strategies that work best for him and encourages others to do the same. One thing about Forex is that it is a tricky thing to learn, but once people get the hang of it, it can be the best profit that they ever make.

Elementary Education-Rocketship Education

Rocketship Education has been in existence for a decade now. The school was first established in a church in San Jose, California. Although the education facility has been in the process of serving their students as well as communities around them since their establishment, they have learned several things. The Rocketship Education listed down some of the things they have learned ever since their foundation as listed below.

Lesson Learnt By Rocketship Education

  • Learning begins at home: During the early years of their creation; Rocketship caught a lot of attention for being the pioneers of personalized learning. The education facility remains strong advocates of technology to support students learning but they believe personalized learning goes beyond technology.
  • To change the education system more demand has to be created: At Rocketship the education facility is only focused on elementary education. However, a lot of parents and funders have been urging the education institution to create a K-2 system which is defiantly tempting, but Rocketship worry is when they see their students leave the fifth grade and they wonder what the future hold for them.
  • Respect the power of parents: One mission of the Rocketship Education is to enable the parents to be responsible, exercise their power and demand political attention, hold leaders accountable as they help the public schools to thrive.
  • Action speaks louder than words; when the Rocketship founders created the education system they did not have children of their own. Nevertheless, the couple is now blessed with two children who also attend Rocketship Education. They purposed to let their children attend the school because they believe they offer quality education and also they lead by example.

Rocketship Education is a non-profit charter education system, which has their Headquarters in Redwood City, California. In 2007 John Danner and Preston Smith decided to establish Rocketship education. The school system is unique in a way that the management use learning models with software which assists students to achieve their goals. The founders wanted to offer quality education to low-income students where access to excellent schools was not available. Being a transformative school the founder’s trust they do more than educating their students but they also engage their parents as well as teachers. The education facility is built on a strong mission and believes that they can easily eliminate the accomplishment gap in the lives of their students and the communities around them.
