Excuses

I’m really tired of excuses.  More exactly, I am tired of hearing, “It will be so much work.” “Our internet is unreliable.” “The computers are tied up for MAP testing and the iPads don’t always work.”  Wah, wah, wah.

This morning I suggested that our Wax Museum (ELA) Project be constructed in Google.  I’d been playing with the process during my free time and, of course, I found a way for the students to construct their project virtually. Again, we all understand that every environment has it challenges and yes, some are more challenging than others.

But I am reminded of one of Simon Senek’s perspectives: that the doers see the top of the mountain and not the mountain while the rest see the mountain a

I feel like that’s where I am.

I feel like I’m standing at the bottom of the mountain and all I can imagine is the vista from the top; what it must look like and how great it will feel to feel the wind in my face and the sense of accomplishment once I get there.

It’s not to say that I don’t know there will be bumps and delays and hurdles along the way, but the possibilities, the anticipated view is what draws me to the work.

So it is why I am looking for a new challenge.  There are seekers out there who, like me, seek the summit because of all the anticipation that comes with getting there.  The team building and the problem-solving.

Mountains… so much to do and so little time… which mountain do I scale first?
