They don’t exist, but I need them.
- Love life
- Spiritual Walk
This weekend we talked about noticing who we are and how we relate to those with whom we are in relationship.
We can fall into one of 4 categories:
a) phenomenally skilled, phenomenally willed (obviously where I want to be)
b) phenomenally willed, average skilled (that’s me)
c) phenomenally skilled, average willed
d) average willed, average skilled
I was a little saddened that my skill level is average. It was a self-assessment, so perhaps it is an inaccurate assessment. Nonetheless, it caused me to evaluate the things I do. I had no choice but to translate average as medium as mediocre and it made me cringe. I don’t want anything I am or anything I do (well, the way I do it) to be considered mediocre.
I have some work to do. Some self-building work. With teaching, I think I just need to be prepared to go above and beyond in terms of systems and taking time to create quality lesson plans and then implement them with accuracy. I can teach. I could teach well- it will just require more than I have been giving. More time, more energy, more thought, and more preparation and planning.
Love life- standards need to be raised. For myself and for others. I haven’t the energy to dwell on this topic too long. Some of my mistakes are irrelevant.
