I think it’s so easy to focus on the negatives out there. You go to bed that night thinking about everything that needs to be done before you fall asleep at your desk because you are too tired to do it, or that you just can’t find the time…etc. etc. It’s hard to feel like you are making a positive change if you are doing it all the time.
There are many ways to feel more positive without actually thinking about it. Maybe you are thinking about what you already know in a positive way. It’s a hard thing to do and it’s a no-brainer. The only thing you have to do is to spend some time reading the comments, commenting, and thinking about it.
I have a lot of those thoughts and feelings about how stupid I am. I don’t think I can do anything about it without thinking about it.
Being a part of a positive change is hard, it’s impossible, but there is a way to make it possible. As a leader, you can be the beacon for the positive change. You can be the person who can light a candle for that positive change. That is the secret to making positive change real. For instance, maybe you are a parent or teacher. Maybe you have been thinking about how to make your classroom a better place since you were a child.
But that can be done by being the person who is willing to give away things that are used to support positive change. Maybe you’ve been thinking about how to make the classroom a better place since you were a child, but now you’re ready to do it. Maybe you’re the one that started the conversation. Maybe you’re the one that started the discussion. Maybe you’re the one that can be the change.
If youre looking for a way to change your classroom, you need to start with a little something that helps you do it. It can be anything you want to change, such as changing the colors, or changing the furniture.
I had a teacher who liked to do this. He was a guy who was extremely organized. When he left the classroom one day, he took with him a big stack of books. He would take them to the front of the room, put them in his backpack, and then take them home. When he went back in the next day, he would have them neatly arranged on the shelves.
Sometimes the new person gets stuck on the same day as the old one if they aren’t ready to commit suicide. It’s the kind of thing that will get you nothing but trouble when you’re trying to get the new person to commit suicide.
He may have been an idiot, but he was also pretty smart. It’s probably not a bad idea to follow that same organizational principle in your life.
Yeah, I can understand why he would have done it that way. It’s the kind of thing that makes sense to do. But that doesn’t mean you should follow it blindly as some sort of dogma. Just because he did it doesn’t mean you should either.
