My past few weeks have been spent reading and chatting 5 Habits with a close friend.
Just last week, after a two day training with Dr. Kanold and a tweet from Casey, I decided to download HEART! for some reading with travel time on the road.
And this morning, I tried to get a walk in before the rains from storm Cindy set in while listening to Cult of Pedagogy.
Two things from the podcast…
If you want to know what your future life will be like, take a look at your life today.
I took this as, if my life right now doesn’t look how I want to see myself in the future, well, there are some choices I need to make.
This went right along with a quote Nicki Koziarz shared in 5 Habits:
What you want most over what you want now.
And the beginning of our training with Dr. Kanold was about naming our vision and using it as the guide in our decisions.
Many will say, yes, Pam, this is common sense. Maybe. But apparently it’s a message I needed to hear at least 3 times before I actually heard it.
The other thing that was shared in the podcast:
I dont like to think of myself as busy, but fruitful, productive, accomplished.
I would like to see myself as more efficient, intentional with my time.
Anyway, just a quick reflection for myself of how 3 different resources are overlapping for me today.
Looking forward to this free webinar from Angela Watson, Teachers You are a Priority too! on June 28.
HEART! has been both convicting and motivating. I have completed 80% of the book, finished Risk last night and beginning Thought today. I am very excited to see how I will use what I’ve learned to have an impact on student learning in my school.
I am sending myself a text for mid-September for accountabity. Hopefully I will have a positive blog post for follow up.
What reading / resources / training have overlapped for you recently?
