Learning, Like Lending, is About Attitude and Approach


By David L. Tuyo II

Live as if you were to die tomorrow.  Learn as if you were to live forever

Screen Shot 2014-03-27 at 10.09.17 AMIn 2009, Disney released the movie UP. UP is a movie about a retired balloon salesman—Carl Fredricksen—who is ready to grab his last chance for high-flying excitement. After tying hundreds of balloons to his house, Carl sails off searching for mythical Paradise Falls to complete a journey he began many years before. The twist in this adventure is revealed when Carl hears a knock on his front door as he is flying through the sky, obviously an odd and curious occurrence. Opening the door, Carl finds a young explorer scout named Russell (not his friendly Credit Union) who ends up tagging along with Carl where they meet up with one of the most endearing characters in movie history—Dug, a dog wearing a special collar that allows him to speak.

Dug is constantly interrupted by his own version of attention deficit disorder: whenever he speaks for any length of time, Dug suddenly stops midsentence, looks to the left or right, and says Squirrel. We have all had our own experiences with Squirrel Syndrome and I have even heard people use the phrase Squirrel Caging, but more on that later.
