Today was a great way to feed my brain and increase thought and forward thinking. I learned the importance of defining/clarifying short, medium and long term goals to help define and focus directions. Marshall has a way of getting us to think and formulate answers rather than simply provide the answers which enables the student to retain and associate with the learning.
