It’s been a very, very long time since I was in the second grade.  Sr. Eugene Marie was my French teacher, and we called her Ma Soeur.  I remember trying to comprehend first of all, why I was even learning French.  I lived in Hawaii!  We speak pidgeon!  I had no idea when I would ever use this language from a country that was halfway around the world from me.  But, I would go on to take French for 10 more years, through high school.  Do I use it?  Not on a daily basis, but on a recent trip to Italy, I could still recognize words that were close to the French I learned almost 50 years ago.  I guess those lessons stuck with me after all.

So now, as I begin the Master Keys Mastermind Alliance course, I feel as if I am back in that second grade class, with brand new pencils and notebooks, ready to learn a new language again.  Was the first lesson overwhelming?  Uh, yeah!  I read through the Master Keys and say, what the heck does that mean?  I do my drills (read my DMP, Scroll #1, Master Keys) and my mind just goes numb from overload.  But this time, I don’t think it will take 50 years for me to use what I’m learning!
