To all my followers…Thank You and Happy Halloween (if you’re into that lol)!!! Stay safe! And Happy November! With a new month comes a change in my blog site. I’m trying this temporarily, and this address: cfactor2011.wordpress.com will still be up. Make sure to get onto the following site: WWW.CHRISENCYCLOPEDIA.COM
It’ll be the same format with many more things to come. The only difference is an actual domain name that will show up in search engines in the future. So tell your family and friends to visit my site, and follow me there through e-mail updates. Follow me on Twitter also.
Last thing: I have videos and tutorials coming up; however, I haven’t decided if they will be on YouTube, Vimeo, or another Facebook account linked to this site.
I’m almost sure that woke people up and possibly got some people mad on this Monday morning 🙂 Let me explain by going a little ‘Bruce Lee’ in this post. I sometimes challenge the traditional ways of teaching and learning institutions, which is ironic considering that I have an extensive background in multiple universities and schools. I do believe that you need to do schooling, regardless of what skills you want to learn. That’s where you get your basics.
However, I don’t agree when certain schools push too much information on a student, thinking that the student will learn what they’re supposed to learn in a certain time period. And I don’t agree when some teachers get extremely frustrated or angry because of this. I won’t blame this all on teachers as the curriculum is also to blame. A person learns when they learn, and every person is different. This reminds me of a former swim coach I had that started getting frustrated and upset when I couldn’t get a skill. Or when I took a group motorcycle class before taking private instruction. There are MANY personal examples I could talk about, but the same idea is there: I learned the skills when my mind and body were ready. I matured when I was ready to mature and accept the discipline needed. The good instructors understood this concept and accepted it. Bad instructors won’t understand this and unfortunately the student will get discouraged. Each time you practice a skill is one step closer to success, and success happens over time. With success comes maturity and discipline, and no one can teach that but yourself and life experiences. You can’t put a deadline or time limit.
I’ll end this post with a quote from the book The Master-Key To Riches by Napoleon Hill (and the numbers are approximate): ‘A person matures physically in about 20 years, but mentally – which means the ego – they require from 35 – 60 years for maturity. This fact explains why people seldom begin to receive material riches in big amounts, or attain other ways of achievement until they become approximately 50 years old.’
Check out this year’s Oktoberfest this weekend in Downtown Campbell. Here’s a little summary from the website:
‘Campbell’s own Oktoberfest will be held in October and will showcase mouthwatering savory German foods including Bratwurst, sauerkraut, pretzels and German potato salad, a variety of beers and ales, over 100 fine artisans from all over the country and an impressive line-up of entertainment, including headliners Alpiners USA.’

Viel Spaß/sich amüsieren!
You’re probably asking who these 2 are. Let me further explain…William S. Harley and Arthur Davidson. William first created a blueprint drawing in 1901 for an engine that fits into a bicycle. Then in 1903, William and Arthur created the first production of their famous brand of motorcycles. Their masterpiece began in a wooden shed (hmmm…another success story that begins in a simple, basic setting). Arthur’s brother Walter later joins in their production.
These are a few photos from the Passport Finale, Pancake Blowout, and 2015 Open House Model Event at Iron Steed H.D. in Vacaville, CA. Some riders showcase their own at these events also.
