exercise lecture

Zack and I just had a stimulating conversation over email and I have to admit, he is quite a bit more logical than I. I realized that this was happening when he beat me in some strategy board game a few years ago. I don’t have the discipline to stay the course and quickly become overconfident. Sometimes I feel like such a poor student. Don told me that good students take the wrong paths and I can’t help but feel like I am constantly doing so. I hope that he is correct and that is an indication of a good student but I cannot help but wonder. Anyway, the computer spit this quote at me and I figured it was apt timing:

The human mind treats a new idea the way the body treats a strange protein -- it rejects it.
