For a lot of folks "on the job training" is just a euphemism for being put on the spot to fail in front of other people. Yet without it, it's difficult to know that one can actually succeed in the real world environment. It can feel safer to sit in class or stand around the water cooler and talk about business rather than go out there and experience it.

The important thing is to recognize, accept and learn from the "on-the-job training" one receives.

On The Job Training

 

 

On The Job Training 

 

On The Job Training 

 

In a world where people are hungry

for quick fixes and sound bites, for instant gratification,

there's no patience for the long, slow rebuilding process: 

implementing after-school programs,

hiring more community workers to act as mentors,

adding more job training programs in marginalized areas 

                                                                                                            Dan Hill

 

The thought of on-the-job training came to me while recently reading on an entirely different subject.  As usual, my mind wandered a bit and I found some additional thoughts.  As I looked at  quotes on the subject of on-the-job-training, I found, as I might have predicted, many words which seemed to be from a campaign stump speech or the like. 

 

That led me to the above quote from an unfamiliar source.  It wasn't that I found it to be totally true-for-me but it prompted me to do a bit more research.  On the topic.  And the author.  I found quite a few things. 

 

And as is common on such searches I found some results that are likely true, some not-so-true and some untrue.  Dan Hill is not the former husband of singer Faith Hill(same name though so confusion is understandable I guess) as some reports stated but is a Canadian-born singer and song writer who has had a couple of hits to his credit. His life story struck me as interesting too.  So while searching for some "on the job training/experience" quotes might have been the original goal, I once again proved to myself that life is but a series of on-the-job training moments. We are constantly learning or at least hopefully that is the goal.  

 

Some lessons are learned quickly.  Others are repeated often for reinforcement or for other reasons.  Still others are learned but perhaps are quickly dismissed, stored away for "safe keeping" or forgotten only to be learned again.  It's a journey.  And a path. 

 

Now, what was I looking for.....
