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!
