In my experience, the internet has been a very useful tool throughout my education, learning new skills and completing certain tasks. First of all, at almost every level of education using computers and having the ability to navigate through the internet is crucial. Teachers and educators in high school and college use the internet often for teaching purposes; requiring that homework and particular reading assignments be completed through the use of the internet. I have also used the internet as a useful tool to learn how to complete certain skills and tasks. For instance, I basically taught myself the mechanics of the golf swing and how to play the game through YouTube. After watching countless videos of professional golfers, like Tiger Woods and Rory Mcilroy, I have learned the golf swing and have become quite and efficient golfer. As a personal trainer, I refer to the internet quite often reading blogs and watching vlogs for fitness and health purposes. Once again, I use YouTube all the time learning from experts in the fitness industry on proper form with various exercises and certain types of fitness like olympic lifting and powerlifting. For instance, I often refer to Jonny Candito's channel CanitoTrainingHQ when I want to learn the specifics of powerlifting technique and programming. The internet is also a useful tool when searching for the latest news topics as I hardly ever read the actual newspaper.
On the other hand, the internet can be quite distracting when attempting to work on homework or focus on something specific, I attribute this to social media and the easy access to movies and television shows. That is why it is extremely important to have a high level of self control when using the internet. I often fall short this, HA!
With that being said, although the internet can sometimes be a distraction, I think the positives far outweigh the negatives. The internet is a great for learning and education and will only continue to be used more as technology steadily advances.
Have you ever felt out of your element in the workplace or just felt extremely uncomfortable in a certain situation? If so, it might be because you are pursuing the wrong career or not working towards your strengths. If that's the case, then maybe it's time to move on and get back on track in working towards a career that fits your personality and of course, strengths.
When I first started college I found myself in this very situation. In my first two years I had changed my major three times going from communication, to political science, then to pre-med. It wasn't until I had taken a kinesiology course called biomechanics as an elective did I realize that all those other majors were not for me. After only a few weeks in biomechanics I knew that I needed to change my major to kinesiology: exercise science because that was the Major that fit my personality and strengths the most. All of my life I have devoted my time to sports, fitness, and health and that is what exercise science is all about. I knew that I already had strengths in these areas and that I could achieve the most success and satisfaction from a career related to exercise science. I have since graduated from Fresno Pacific University with a B.A. in Exercise Science, am working towards a Master's degree in Exercise Science, working as a personal trainer, and am pursuing a career as a Strength and Conditioning coach for athletes at the collegiate level. Furthermore, my point is to take a look at yourself and evaluate your situation. Are you working towards your strengths and interests, or are you in a position within a career that makes you feel uncomfortable and out of place? If so, then seriously consider thinking about what you are good at and what you really want to achieve in life. After that, take the necessary steps to put yourself in a position to work towards those strengths and you will find yourself living a more positive meaningful life!
If you are an educator, an athlete, or someone with a website trying to get your message out there and you are not microblogging, you are missing a crucial aspect to establishing a PWP (personal web presence). Not only is microblogging an entertaining thing to participate in, it is a great way to talk about yourself, your business, your message, or whatever it may be in both your professional or personal life. Microblogs exist to promote websites and businesses and are a great way to show people what's going on in your life. I have found that microblogging has been a very effective way for me to get my message out to people. As a personal trainer/strength coach I am able to show people what I am all about and how I can help them achieve their goals in fitness and nutrition. So whether you are trying to promote your business or simply just trying to show people your cool GoPro picture, get to microblogging and show people what you are all about!
Greg Plitt is a world renowned body builder and world class athlete. Most people know about him and his accolades through his presence on the internet. Along with being a former Army Ranger and the poster boy for countless fitness and health magazines, Plitt has made himself known for his fitness/motivational videos on youtube, Instagram, Facebook, and his own personal website gregplitt.com. When it comes to Plitt's presence on the internet he goes above and beyond. Not only does Plitt have numerous fitness/workout videos, he films vlogs and includes blogs on his website as well. His vlogs include valuable and educational information about fitness and health, nutrition, body composition, life skills, his own personal beliefs, and even cooking recipes. The only downside, and it's really not a big deal because he puts out quality information, is that you have to pay a monthly fee of $10 to have access to his website. Overall, Greg Plitt has one of the best web presences in all of the fitness industry, both online and in the real world. Through his website, he allows his viewers to get a good look into both his professional and personal life and I think that is why he really attracts a vast audience. If any other people in the fitness/health/nutrition industry are looking to increase their PWP (including myself), Greg Plitt is an excellent person to exemplify.
