Bench Racing 2017
It almost snuck by.
That's a question which is just as important as the one I posed in the 11/19/17 Bench Racing post: What Are You Worth?
I don't think it can be stressed enough: education is critical for success.
One of my favorite activities is racing automobiles.
Each one of us is unique.
Growing up, I've found that many of us get a sense that "education" and "learning" are done in a school with a teacher.
No, I'm not asking you to prove your worth as a person based on some other person's value system.
Vision is a word that gets bandied about a lot, but I don't often see people that truly have a grasp of the concept with enough depth, breadth, or more importantly, detail.
By now the concept of being a morning person or a night person is pretty common knowledge, but did you know it has an impact on your productivity?
All Hallows Eve is nearly upon us and unless you live in an awesome part of the country that remains perpetually warm, fall is officially here.

Biology, more than just about anything else, means success or failure for your hobby, so understanding it is critical.
In business, management is often viewed as an activity you do with and for a group of people, but the reality is that management is necessary whenever complexity has to be controlled.

The world of automotive enthusiasts is both complex and varied.
We are all walking brains.

"Unquenchable curiosity" and "feverishly inventive imagination" are phrases that have been used to describe people who adhere to the renaissance ideal:
There's CoO, then there's RCoO.
Do you know when the First Great American Road Trip was taken — I mean one that went from sea-to-shining-sea?
Do you know what the First American Car was?
Did you know that Karl Benz is considered to be the father of the automobile?
In the German automobile industry, there is a saying:
One of my greatest loves in life is product development.
Since it first rolled off of assembly lines in the mid-1960s, the Mustang has been an icon.
I'm not gonna lie, the Camaro has never really stood out much for me.
I would like to think that the vast majority of people are aware of the saying "a picture is worth a thousand words," so I'm just going to operate from that assumption for the sake of this post.
