Does Taking A Course Make A Difference?

I've heard friends, colleagues and acquaintances complain that going to courses are useless, they will give anecdotal evidence about observing a colleague who attended a course in XXX and it didn't change anything.

I would agree to such an observation, but my response to that is this: Many people go to church and read the Bible, but they don't change either. That doesn't mean that going to church and what the Bible teaches is useless.

A Hero Isn't Just Proactive

I learnt from scriptwriting that a hero isn't just proactive. He is proactive to cause a reaction in the other party.

Just doing something isn't the mark of a hero, doing something that does something, that causes things to move, that causes a change or reaction on the lover, the enemy, the situation, that is the meaning of being proactive.
