“Repetition is the mother of learning, the father of action, which makes it the architect of accomplishment.”
– Zig Ziglar
Backed by decades of experience producing exceptional clinical outcomes, Kintinu Telerehab connects recovery to everyday life. In this podcast, we explore hot topics in rehabilitation, the keys to personal growth and recovery, and how to apply it all to the real-world.
Learning or re-learning a skill involves many components, but practice or repetition are two of the more commonly discussed factors. But, it is not just the number of repetitions that make an impact. Learning also depends on the quality of the repetitions and the context in which they are completed.
In this episode of Kintinu’d Conversations, Brad Dexter, Ana Hancock, and Tim Benak welcome welcome Caleb Freeman and Pastor Jeremy Freeman. At the age of 16, Caleb sustained a traumatic brain injury after a car accident. His journey of recovery took him away from his home state of Oklahoma to various rehabilitation facilities, which included QLI in Omaha, NE. He and his family found motivation and hope through their faith, and upon return home, Caleb developed and implemented new routines in all aspects of his life. With support from his family and friends, not only was Caleb able to walk again, but he also ran in the final cross-country race of his senior year.
Listeners will learn about Caleb’s story of hope and resilience, his desire to inspire others, and how his commitment repetition and practice helped him achieve his goals. His Dad, Pastor Jeremy, also weighs in on how Caleb’s return home affected their family and the importance of their faith throughout Caleb’s recovery journey. The Freeman’s story exemplifies many components of learning including Repeat, Repeat, Repeat, Support for Success, and Motivate with Meaning.
