Week 7: Concentration

This week's featured Goal is about Spencer West, who climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro (put that in your dictionary) without having legs.  Please don't tell me you can't use the number bar. Read more here.  

This week's lesson is recapping one I touched on a while back, what finally helped me get the CRR:  concentration.  The entry is here.

Due to a Flash upgrade (I think) the speedy-up-slowy-down function of the Magnum Steno practice videos wasn't working for several days this week and last, so I went ahead and practiced to the slower speeds and practiced CONCENTRATION. The downside of normally practicing at insane speeds is that piddly 280 wpm sounds SLOW, so my brain starts going, "Meh. I can get this," and I lose concentration. The last dang thing I want to do is get to the Attempt and choke.

Concentration is a skill!  And just like steno or drawing or riding a bicycle, it gets better with practice.  Really.

Have a good week!
