Do You Get It

The Bee Smart beekeeping project exists because I love helping people bee as successful as they can.  I know others who share that passion, goal and conviction.  To help others “get it”, whatever “it” is that they need or want to know or do.

There is the crux of the matter, “getting” it.  Depending on the person, the thing to be learned, and the nature of the information people”get” things in different ways.

Some things people can “get” by reading about it.  Other things are better “gotten” by hearing about it.  Still others you have to see it to “get” it.  Lastly, there are some things that people “get” best by watching it which includes hearing and seeing, sometimes even reading thrown in too.

Different people learn best in different ways.  So when it came time to think of how do I want to present useful information to people, I asked the people I trust most, those people being the Beehooligans.  I asked, “Do we want to write articles, share pictures, make podcasts or make videos?”  The answer was a resounding, “Yes!”

We don’t want folks to just know about something that will or can be useful in helping them be more successful.  We want folks to really “get it”.  So the Bee Smart beekeeping project was born.  An ambitious effort to bring useful information to people wanting to be more successful beekeepers and supporters of bees and beekeeping in a variety of ways.

Bee Smart is articles, pictures, podcasts, and videos all in one place.  We want you to know useful information.  We want you to have fun learning it so as to help learn it better.  We want you to learn it in the format which will be most practical for you.  We want you to really, truly, actually “get it”.  Whatever it is.

When someone “gets it” it’s more than just knowing about it or remembering it.  It’s understanding it so as to know why you want to do it, when to do it or not do it.  How to do it or more than one way to do it depending on the circumstances.

When you get it, you own it.  When you own it, you get better at it.  That right there is what we’re shooting for.

Get it?  Got it?

Good.
