100th Everyday Spacer Part 2

‘Nothing changes you more than getting what you want’ ~Barbara Sher (paraphrased)

If you’ve ever set a goal and achieved a ‘want’ for yourself, you know this to be true.

Like the sweet potatoes without sand were preferred by the Koshima monkeys, what innovation shall bring us to our coveted prize as a spacefaring civilization?

Perhaps getting what you want; perhaps many of us getting what we want and reaching a tipping point to leverage us off world.

Yet how do you mold yourself into the right person for the job once the job is here to do?

I say, you do lots of things.  By doing, you learn solutions and by doing lots of different things, you get crossover ideas to solve new problems.

Just as FedEx uses the system banks uses to process checks, to deliver packages; you could solve a problem off-world by learning to kiss (isn’t docking with another space vehicle a bit like kissing?  I often wonder why they don’t get to that point in a similar manner).

From the Cone of Learning^ it’s clear that actually doing things or even simulating the real experience is the best way to retaining those capabilities.

And that’s part of why Everyday Spacer is all about doing.

As far as doing goes, I’m a good guide for you.  And getting what I wanted changed me in so many ways.  I go for more of what I want continually now.

Here is a short list of things I have done:

  • 14th Annual International Space Development Conference
  • 10 local Midwest Space Development Conference
  • Worked at Boeing on the Delta Program
  • ground a mirror for a telescope
  • Pres & VP local National Space Society chapters in Ohio & California
  • Taking a telescope out to the sidewalk (may have inspired a neighbor kid)
  • Volunteer at NASA
  • Several presentations to astronomy clubs

I did everything you see on this list while I was a single mom.

Imagine your potential!

Just by sharing the beauty of APOD or the night sky, inspire others by reading to children, use social media to ‘share’ cool space stuff, read Abundance and understand accelerating acceleration, find blogs like  Simventure, we could get our ’100th Everyday Spacer’ (monkey) and the innovation – travel to the stars can “…jumped over the sea…” and we will give future generations hope, room, wealth, innovations, spinoffs… and more.

The root of it is explained very nicely in a video by Mark Hendricks:  Big Reason Why

MY APOLOGIES I recently activated a ‘captcha’ plug-in. Each comment will now verify you are a visitor who wants to leave an actual comment. I saw hundreds of messages a day which had nothing to do with Everyday Spacer, or you. The task of sifting and sorting was keeping me from writing and from your real comments. Please reach out as you wish, I want to hear from you and be of service, as I am able. I would not use the ‘captcha’ program if I didn’t have to.
