Just Start!

“Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. 
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.” –Goethe

I believe that we let obstacles and excuses get in the way of our dreams.  Pay close attention to conversations about change.  The focus is typically on "what could be?" or "why we cannot do things differently".    Very little time is spent on the actions that need to take place.  We can debate the change that should occur in our world, lives, education, etc.  The unfortunate thing is that nothing changes unless someone is bold enough to begin it.  I have a couple of questions to ask as we wind down the present school year and plan for the next.  
  1. What are you bold enough to change?
  2. What actions are you willing to take to accomplish the change?
  3. How can we change conversations to focus on what truly matters?
The most important thing is that we opt to be bold, take action, and enjoy the moments that follow... B

  1. Thank you! Love this! Reminds me of Ghandi's "Be the change you want to see in the world."

    Too many of us say what we would like to happen without taking any action steps. Thanks for this bold reminder.
