This week I signed up to UC Berkley’s online Grammar, Mechanics, and Usage course (even though the title of the course includes the serial comma, which I wouldn’t use). It’s over 10 years since I last took a grammar course, so I thought it might be a good idea to have a refresher. Also, I’ve realised that I really enjoy studying. My business coach has been encouraging me to read The Success Principles. One of the exercises was to list 100 successes in your life (a difficult task!) and I found that about a third of my successes involved gaining qualifications or skills.
