We can not teach others

Disney Keynote Speakers
You give yourself an A+ for creating your own learning environment, right?

 

We can not teach others until we learn to teach ourselves.

Where would we be without failure?

And teachers?

Who is your best teacher?

(Heads up, it’s a trick question.)

Through writing and teaching i want to spread light

Disney Keynote speaker
Photo from two days ago, but i can’t recall where.

 

Through writing and teaching, i want to spread light.

i believe in this idea.

Note: Every post i write is designed to capture what i learned yesterday, what i get to do today, and what i hope for tomorrow. And from that, i hope to reflect long enough to learn something relevant to continuously improve my habits.

With that in mind, what do you want to spread into our world? What tools or resources allow you to do that? How much do you believe in this idea?

Unrelenting desire to teach

teaching mantra
From a memorial service two days ago.

 

Unrelenting desire to teach.

One of the speakers characterized Brad Ramsey (WPS 2014 Teacher of the Year) as having an unrelenting desire to teach.

In a school, perhaps, this is valued above all other values.

In a Fortune 500, probably never going to make it to the medal podium.

For all of us, the insight: we must find a million ways to persevere when what we are most passionate and skilled at, is not at the top of our company’s list.

Dear Son, as you begin today’s first day of 10th grade remember the big picture – i’m grooming you to be your own boss.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Are we taking the best steps forward to be safe?

 

The only things that really matter are the things we do for others.

Teaching personifies doing things for others.

So yesterday, June 10, after offering up my time to mentor someone from the other side of the world and someone on other side of town, i had a reflective moment.

Teaching others can reach a level were you’re actually paying back all the teachers who helped you get to where you are today.

And now today, i’m weirdly aware that in 90 days, this will go live and everyone will be remembering September 11th.

i had been a speaker (teacher) only 2.5 years and was teaching at Epcot the morning the world stop turning.

Now i’ve been a speaker teacher for 17 years.

Who cares?

It took 40 years to discover i was born to teach.

How long did it take you to discover what you were born to do?

How long have you been doing what you were born to do?
