Be Your Best > Do Your Best

Let’s do our best. Great advice and we should strive to perform at all times.

Big picture, however, I say let’s working on who we are, and how we impact others with the totality of who we are and how we impact them.

Step one is to gain awareness of who you are and what makes you tick. Your bottom line internal self is always there, work to know and understand it and then you can make improvements if you’d like, or simply accept and be great.

Experiential Learning

The best kind of learning is that which we can be or do rather than hear or think about.

Teaching is about offering opportunities to try (and fail?), to experiment and to experience.

Of course “students” can do these things without the teacher, too. Providing the conditions for these experiences is a great boost to the learning possibilities, but it’s not necessary.

Pupils will learn about what they care about.

Direct, question, massage the experience and be a great teacher because your people are great learners.

Fight to Be Right

Each time you state what you’re all about, what you stand for, you set yourself up to fight for that moment to moment.

If you are “all about” discipline, for example, you then need to be ready not only to be disciplined in your actions but to fight for the belief that discipline is important.

It has to work.
