Final 120 Days

There’s a time and a place

High School graduation
The privilege of having the High School graduation here is not lost on me.
Walt Disney Theater, last night.

There’s a time and a place for everything.

Last night the time and place was 7:00 PM, at the Walt Disney Theater inside the Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center in downtown Orlando.

Congratulations WPS class of 2019.

When you are literally the only one for the entire day

WPS
Teachers have a work day with no students.

 

WPS
Waiting for my next appointment with our Son’s English teacher.

 

Six parent-teacher conference meetings yesterday, a Friday.

None of the teachers had more than two parents request the opportunity. For several teachers, i was their only appointment.

i know if i was still at Disney and traveling like i used to, i’d have missed the opportunity as well.

All students had off to accommodate teacher accessibility by interested or concerned parents.

By the way, i was only interested, not concerned. It’s taken a year and a half to move from being concerned to being interestingly hopeful. Slow and steady wins the transformational race.

About Mid Life Celebration

Do we need questions that make people’s minds explode?

Q. Why did you create Mid Life Celebration?

A. Because the world needs a wake up call.

This Is Genius, the video below, really is, genius.

 

 

Leadership 201: Ask questions that make people’s minds explode – because of the question’s power.

The video made my eyes water, as a 55 year old dad of a 14-year old, i find myself asking a powerful question that no one offers a convincing answer to.

What’s the purpose of school?

Hat tip to Seth Godin for sharing.

This Is Genius?

Yes.

Final answer.

Mid Life Celebration is about making the most of the hand we’re dealt

Sometimes our second choice is better than the official choice.

Will miss tonight’s performance, but didn’t miss yesterday’s final practice session.

Mid Life Celebration is about making the most out of the hand we are dealt.

Always.

Insight: Unknowingly, to be the only parent at the final rehearsal was inspiring to the students.

Do we have an immediate and convincing answer to this question?

School Facebook page update for middle school class
I believe adults are placed here to raise children, and to do it well (photo: school photographer)

 

Are you still chasing your dreams?

Do we have an immediate and convincing answer to this question?

Why are we here?

There are varying degrees of belief, focus, commitment, and creative effort.

This year’s class (photo above) is 60% smaller than last year’s.

A once in a lifetime opportunity?

The photo is day two of the 2013-14 school year.

The book I promised to write 34 years ago for my children is much closer to reality.
