Enthusiasm, tests, nerves and white knuckles
This weekend we had a belt test at the karate school I attend. It made me think of a CD I listen to of the great motivational legend Earl Nightingale.  He made the statement that enthusiasm is something that can be generated by two things:   Learning Goals ...
