Another one of my new creations based on the Book Make Your Bed by William H. McRaven. He talked a lot about his navy seals experiences. It’s a short book that I took about a week to complete, definitely worth the read.

Learning disabilities hold special meaning to me, as I was typing away on my assignment on learning organisations and quality assurance mechanisms. The knowledge obtained spammed across two semesters during my masters programme.

Why nobody told me e-learning could have been done this way?!
