It is always good when you are acknowledged for doing something well. But so often, we reflect very briefly on those moments. More often, we think about and remember the moments things didn’t go well. We consider learning opportunities to be the moments were we risked and failed and provided ourselves with things to work on.
We focus on the failures. We focus on the mistakes. We don’t give time to the things that are successful. We are worried about talking successes for fear it will be bragging.
Dan Heath, in an interview on “The Salaried Entrepreneur” says, “rather than focus on why something failed, we should focus on why something was successful. Focus on the elements that made something work.”
So, what’s working for you?
This is the eBook that my Gr. 11 class put together. It is an exploration of what it means to be successful in today’s culture. This is the first thing that many of these students has had anyone read beyond their teachers. Comments are VERY welcome! I would love an authentic audience to contribute to the process.
