Even Honest Abe Took Awhile . . . .

For some reason, in my middle age, I've grown curious about the US Presidents and often read their biographies.  Being a nerd, I read with a highlighter in hand to capture quotes I love.  

“I am slow to learn and slow to forget that which I have learned.  My mind is like a piece of steel, very hard to scratch any thing on it and almost impossible after you get it there to rub it out”

Abraham Lincoln

I subscribe to the idea that you teach what you need to learn and, in both parenting and organizing, I teach and train so I can remember and learn.  Sometimes I feel bad about myself, like I'm a big ole fraud with my nagging ways and messy desk, but then I read this quote and think . . . I just need more review, like Old Honest Abe.
