I am blogging about Education and Life Skills and Personal Development.

Effective communication, goal-setting, and critical thinking are essential life skills that can help you achieve success in your personal and professional life. Communication is the foundation of all human interaction, and it is essential to convey your thoughts and ideas effectively to others. Goal-setting helps you to identify your priorities and work towards achieving them systematically. Critical thinking enables you to analyze situations objectively, identify problems, and find solutions that are effective and efficient. These skills are universal and relevant to all fields of work and life. They help you to make informed decisions, solve problems creatively, and adapt to changing circumstances. By mastering these skills, you can lead a fulfilling life that is full of purpose and meaning.

Meine grossen Themen des Lebens sind Bildung, Erziehung und Lernen ohne Ende!

Mein Dank gilt allen LEHRERN und LEHRERINNEN, die sich um mich bemueht haben, mich nicht schlicht uebersehen haben – mich als Person wahrgenommen und akzeptiert haben. Im Gymnasium und an der Universitaet. Mein Vater war der erste und einzige Lehrer vor Ort ueber vier lange Jahre, weit entfernt von Itzehoe in Holstein. Der Schulbus passierte unser Bauerndorf um 06.50 Uhr – im Winter und im Sommer. Die Dorfschule mit 9 Klassen und einem Lehrer lag in einer Sackgasse, die in einem Feldweg mit Pfuetzen endete. Es gab zwei Autos im Dorf 1956, einen alten Mercedes 180 und einen VW mit der Nummer IZ V 19.

Ich war 1960 der erste und einzige Schueler im Dorf, der das Gymnasium in der Kreisstadt besuchen durfte.

Dort gab es zwei Gymnasien, die Kaiser – Karl – Schule und die Augusta – Victoria – Schule.

An der KKS gab es 1960 keine Maedchen, die waren alle auf der AVS – nach meiner Erinnerung auch nur sehr wenige Lehrerinnen. Vielleicht zwei oder drei unter etwa 40 Maennern, die sehr geachteten Herren Studienraete!

Ich besuchte die KKS etwa fuer 5 Jahre und wechselte im Alter von 15 Jahren zum Humboldt Gymnasium in Kiel, das ich im Alter von 19 Jahren 1968 mit der Hochschulreife verliess. Im Jahr 2018 trafen sich viele meiner damaligen Mitschuler / -innen zum 50 jaehrigen Abi – Klassentreffen.

Auch mit dem Thema ZEIT habe ich mich intensiver beschaeftigt! Im Lateinunterricht im Gymnasium lasen wir Texte von Seneca wie: De Brevitate Vitae – Wikipedia | Noch immer bin ich vielen meiner Lehrer und Lehrerinnen dankbar, weil sie mich auf den Weg des Lernens fuehrten!

Geboren in einem Dorf mitten in Schleswig  – Holstein war es alles andere als selbstverstaendlich in den 50er Jahren, in die so spannende Welt des Lernens eingefuehrt zu werden! 

Auch viele Reisen und Dienstjahre im Ausland wirst du hier als roten Faden finden. Viel Freude beim Lesen – Feedback is most welcome!

With my best wishes from QLD Australia yours

Improving communication skills is a valuable asset in both personal and professional life. Here are some tips to help you improve your communication skills:

  1. Be clear and concise: Use simple language and avoid jargon. Be precise and to the point.
  2. Prepare ahead of time: Before a meeting or presentation, prepare your thoughts and ideas. This will help you communicate more effectively.
  3. Be mindful of nonverbal communication: Your body language, facial expressions, and tone of voice can convey a lot of information. Be aware of your nonverbal cues and use them to your advantage.
  4. Watch your tone: The tone of your voice can affect how your message is received. Speak clearly and confidently, but avoid sounding aggressive or confrontational.
  5. Practice active listening: Listening is an important part of communication. Pay attention to what others are saying, ask questions, and show that you are engaged.
  6. Build your emotional intelligence: Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand and manage your own emotions, as well as the emotions of others. Developing emotional intelligence can help you communicate more effectively.
  7. Develop a workplace communication strategy: Identify areas where communication can be improved in your workplace and develop a plan to address them.
