Travel plans and training courses

by Terry 4/22/2008 7:30:00 AM

I took a few days off from the journal to recover from painting high ceilings. Now it’s back to work; and busy work is. I have two trips coming up, Orlando in May, Atlanta in June. Orlando is for a conference, VSLive and TechMentor, for software developers and architects. In June it is training for Hewlett Packard’s Server Automation System 6.5. I am participating in systems validation for a suite of tools and processes under evaluation by my company.

I am also trying to prepare course work for teaching Leadership skills to the martial arts students at my school. Figuring out what to cover, how to break out assignments and making sure I know what to teach is a time filling tasks. I tend to be a perfectionist and I want the students to get high value for their time. The age range is a challenge too. The youngest in the class is seven and the rest are evenly divided between teens and adults.

The seven-year-old I will exclude from much of the course-work, having him only do the mat-work for now. This is an 18 month curriculum, so I will have him work the course work next year. His father is one of the students too, and he is happy with the accommodation. Several of the students are working toward their black belts this September. They will have considerable workload meeting those requirements, so they will be given their class assignments in October or November. I do not want to burn them out. The class is a work in progress and a balancing act between age, skill and various goals.

All the activity makes me want to pull my hair out. Fortunately, I keep my hair short.
