Listen up. Look out. (And yeah, I guess I missed something.) – SCN Encourager

Do you remember last week’s cautionary tale?

Personally, I thought it was brilliant.

screen-shot-2016-10-11-at-3-38-23-pmI reminded all of us to not go overboard with “attentive listening” at the expense of “mindful observing.”

Using your ears may be good, but using your eyes to note actual real-world behavior may be more beneficial.

Here it is.

Like I said, I thought it was brilliant.

Unfortunately my glowing self-assessment was a big-time over-reach.

(Did you know the former pop song “Oops. I did it again” was about me?)

Apparently though, we need to do more than just listen up and look out in our work as school communicators.

And this quote from Mark Twain (thanks to a reader) pretty well sums it up.












Now I don’t know what to tell you.

But dang, my moment of brilliance sure didn’t last very long, did it?
