Old beginnings

Posted on: January 1, 2019

As I start 2019, I am reminded of advice a veteran teacher gave me when I was a novice: Begin as you see yourself continuing. It was her way of telling me to pace myself.

Begin as you see yourself continuing.

It was also another way of saying sort out your priorities and set your path right early on. A veteran teacher has the benefit of hindsight — it is much harder to change later than sooner.

Harder, but not impossible. Early on, my guiding principles were simple; they could be boiled down to single words. Learner. Changer. Troublemaker.

I am relying on old beginnings to keep me energised for consulting opportunities I have lined up for 2019. I am beginning as I see myself continuing.
