Stephen Downes

Knowledge, Learning, Community

Someone wrote to me to recommend this column,  a piece he said reminded him of my article Things You Really Need to Learn from 2006. It's a well-written piece by sportswriter Joe Posnanski on the subject of haircuts and Bruce Springsteen. The wisdom he reflects isn't originally mine, or his, or anyone's from this century, "that life is about delivering your best effort, giving the best you have, all the time, even when you're tired, even when you're discouraged, even when you are alone, even when other people will not see it or acknowledge it or even accept it." Bonus: Bruce Springsteen, The River, from Magnetic Hill last summer.
