Even if the consequence of a situation is not your fault, you can learn from the event by making it your responsibility. This is what Adam calls internalization.
Success must be earned. It is not an entitlement.
Growing a Business (New York: Simon & Shuster, 1988)
Nothing cures boredom like cognitive engagement. If you’re bored, ask yourself an important question: Is it it my teacher’s job to entertain me? Or to educate me?
Who’s job is it to bring motivation to the table? Education is a two-way street. Teachers teach; students learn. So ask yourself…
Don’t forget to turn your clocks ahead one hour tonight. Although we sacrifice an hour of sleep, staying lighter later is the payoff. Isn’t that true of everything in life. Short-term pain leads to long-term gain.
For kids, staying light out an hour later means more bike riding, more playground basketball, and more Frisbee with your dog. For grown-ups, it often means peeling those unwanted pounds acquired during the winter months. Time for me to buy some new running sneakers!
The days will continue to get longer until June 21, which is the longest day of the year in the Northern hemisphere. If you love summer as much as me, then turning the clocks ahead is a sure sign that fun times are just around the corner.
Have a great weekend!
