This is a bit of a different episode than normal. Usually, you would hear an interview or a round-table with someone who has something to teach us about education and schools. Today, instead, you will hear a collection of tips from our previous guests.
I am calling this the anti-resolution episode. Why? Because the idea of New Year’s resolutions is not effective. According to US News, 80% of resolutions have failed by the second week of February. I think this is true of any big change that people try to make. My perspective is that if you try to make a big change all at once, you are going to fail whether it be in your personal life or at work.
As an alternative to a big massive change, the people in this episode offer suggestions for small changes that are a first step towards a better situation. Some suggestions are personal, others professional. Making a series of small shifts over time, in my opinion, will result in better progress over the long term.
As we start the New Year, I’d like to thank everyone who has helped make our first year a success. From our guests, to you the listener, thank you. We hope that you have learned something and that you continue to follow along with us as we learn alongside our guests.
