It’s Me or The Dog

Some days it feels like a zero sum game: Either the dogs get exercise or I get exercise; either the students get time to prepare [for what is often times past] or I get time to prepare them for what’s next. In reality, a win-win possibility always exists, in my self-created binary universe, at least. The challenge is to keep believing in people, myself included, until we are able, willing and have taken the next step in taking initiative. It’s a patience game to be sure and a poker face is necessary, but the benefits of cultivating effectiveness over efficiency are, as Stephen Covey asserts, immeasurable.
