About

Welcome to Lifelong Learning Coach!  My name is Jim Ponchak and I am a math teacher and basketball coach.  I strongly believe that learning and growth should not stop when school stops.  I also believe that it is not enough to learn new things; we need to apply our learnings.

“Contrary to popular wisdom, knowledge is not power – it’s potential power.  Knowledge is not mastery.  Execution is mastery.  Execution will trump knowledge every day of the week.” – Tony Robbins

The goal of this site is to share things I have learned to help others learn, apply, succeed, and repeat.  I will share my thoughts and learnings on ideas, books, courses, and other sources that are helping me grow into my best self.

To paraphrase John Newton: I am not what I ought to be, I am not what I am going to be, but I am better than I used to be.  

I hope you find something here to help you become better than you used to be!
