Welcome to nc’s blog. Read, comment, interact, engage. Let’s learn together - recursively.

nc's Growth Plan

I am on a perpetual personal growth plan, which I update each June.  Here's the current version...

Nelson Coulter’s Personal and Professional Growth Plan 

(for the 2024-25 School Year)


Framed against the components of Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences Theory.  


Intrapersonal Intelligence

I will engage in mental, physical, and emotional/spiritual “resets” every 90 minutes.

I will accelerate my own learning and generously share it with others. 

Interpersonal Intelligence

I will relentlessly demonstrate my love for Moe and my family.

I will strive to build bridges – not walls – with every interpersonal encounter.

I will improve my skills in making meaningful “connection” with others.

Verbal-linguistic Intelligence

I will read at least one non-fiction and one fiction book per month.

I will write at least one article for publication.

I will make at least two blog entries per week.

I will write Book #4. 

Logical-mathematical Intelligence

I will seek deeper understanding of the patterned/mathematical underpinnings of nature and music.


Bodily-kinesthetic Intelligence

I will eat real food only (predominantly an organically raised, plant-based diet).

I will purposefully learn more about optimizing my physical/intellectual/spiritual health.

I will “move” (walk, swim, work physically, etc.) for at least one hour each day. 

Musical Intelligence

I will practice music for at least 20 minutes each day.

I will add one song per quarter to my performance repertoire.

I will play music with friends/family at least quarterly.

Spatial Intelligence                 

I will be more observant of form, function, patterning, and relationships within integrated systems.

Naturalist Intelligence

I will be a more conscientious steward of all resources, living and non-living.

I will seek to better understand ecological interconnectivity (both in natural and social contexts). 

I will deliberately apply regenerative permaculture practices on our land.

Existential Intelligence

I will seek to understand and fulfill God’s purpose for my life.

I will connect daily with others of the Christian faith.
