It’s been a while.
Yeah well life happens. People change.
It’s been a time of figuring out what really matters.
I’ve been spending a lot of time outdoors.
Fresh air. Nature. Listening. Acknowledging. Reflecting.
In a state of constant reflection it becomes a state of being.
I’ve also had laser sharp focus.
On my goals.
What makes me happy.
What doesn’t make me happy.
Making room for growth.
Inviting. Evoking. Reminding.
I’ve been very deliberate in my teaching.
Information. Questions. Timing. Modelling. Structure. Form. Reasoning. Grounding.
I’ve never really been able to describe what I do. I find myself naturally gliding through. Responding moment by moment to the environment. The energy. The questions.
I guess that generally does describe what I do. What I think is key to teaching and vital for learning. essential for leadership.
Deliberate yet emotionally responsive.
Ultimately thinking reflectively.
It’s hard to not get sucked into gimmicks. Buzz words. Fads.
Be reminded always of what works.
If there is one thing that has helped with all of this.
It’s been Art.
Again it’s hard to put into words the effect it has.
But it does have one. A huge one.
One that can only ever be explained qualitatively.
Again new territory for me coming from a subject that relies heavily on quantitive approaches.
So this stream of consciousness comes from time.
Time to take it all in.
Articulate it all.
I hope you all enjoy the journey to merging the worlds.
