I know that some of your reading this post have already made note of the my spelling, grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure errors in this blog post. You have judged me. It’s called discrimination. So no I don’t see the humor in being judged by this one criteria.
The Yale Center for Dyslexia and Creativity states that 1 in 5 people are dyslexic. That’s a lot of students, and adults who struggle in an area you might be good in. Should we be judging people in this way, or making fun of them?
Grammarly sells itself as a place to go to get help with spelling, grammar, and sentence structure. Who wants to get help from the very same people who will judge you and make fun of you for the very thing you need assistance in? Shame of you Grammarly. By the way is grammarly a real word? Let me spell check that one.
For the record, in spite of my difficulties with spelling, grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure I have been and continue to be successful. I have my undergraduate degree, two advanced degrees, earned a commission as an officer in the US Army, and have been successful in both private and non-profit businesses, as well as being an entrepreneur.
I’ve recently written an Amazon.com bestselling book, “Who’s in Charge of Bob?” Where I teach students to focus on their natural talents, not deficit remediation, and how to manage their weaknesses, while maintaining a positive attitude.
Success doesn’t depend on good spelling, grammar, or sentence structure, though it’s a great skill to have. Success is about knowing your true talents and strengths. Success is about managing the things you’re not any good at, and creating and maintaining a positive attitude in the face of struggles and set backs. Don’t let others judge you by what their good at. You be your own judge based on what you’re good at.
