Thursday

02Jan14

I had read this blog before – it made the rounds on social media last year. It was recently re-posted, however, and I was looking it over again. Some good points worth consideration; while I do believe in the power of positive thinking and such, the author brings up some very valid arguments about DOING things. As an educator, I find myself reflecting on this a lot – how do we foster creativity and critical thinking while also giving students tangible skills that will allow them to…well, DO and BE. Real stuff.

My favorite quote though: “Tyler (Durden) said, “You are not your job,” but he also founded and ran a successful soap company and became the head of an international social and political movement. He was totally his job.” Damn. Good point.
