    Default Preaching, teaching and Training. There is a difference.

    Preaching, teaching, and training? Each one is different. Knowledge is power but only if you can apply it. I have trained marines most of my life. Everything from how to spit shine their boots to the complex fire control system of the M1A1Main Battle Tank plus everything in between.

    Whatever it is you want to learn or get better at starts with pen and paper: a written plan. If you want to catch a bass over 8 pounds then that's your terminal learning objective. Now what's it going to take for you to catch a bass over 8#. These are your enabling learning objectives. In other words it's the things you have to learn and do to catch big bass.

    That being said even the best of us can get only so far "self training" ourselves. That's were a mentor and tutor come in. We all need help from time to time getting through obstacles and there is no shame in seeking assistance. A good guide or friend can help you. A professional guide isn't cheep and I got that. But it's money well spent. You can learn more in four to eight hours with them than you could in 6 months or longer by yourself. But once again: have specific objectives written down that clearly outlines for him or her what it is you want to walk away with after the trip: and that will be money well spent.

    The next obvious no brainer is "if I knew what to do I'd of already done it" and this is true. So if you don't know what questions to ask, or what you need to do to reach your objective then find yourself a trusted friend to coach you.

    The sequence is: a written plan, research and collection of subject matter, class room, OJT / On the water instruction and application, and finally repetition.

    One last thought. Desire and passion. Do you have the desire to work at what you want?

    Good luck, God bless and see you on the water.

    Am not, but it is in my blood. Father, grandfather, uncles, etc.
    In the draft my number was 310. Parents wanted me to get an education.

    Understood Jim. Wise parents. The only difference between being a marine and being raised by a marine is boot camp. Boot camp for me was 13 weeks. Boot camp for my kids lasted a lifetime lol. Semper Fi Jim.
