At least it does for me – since I hold onto my old notions with an iron grip.
they’re about the only things I can hang onto with any certainty.
But it’s a good thing (as I’m constantly reminded by Cindy and the girls) to give fresh thinking a chance every now and then.
They’re probably right.
No doubt the gap I mentally maintain between my NOW and my THEN is far wider than it should be.
What caused me to bring this to your attention today is this thought-stimulating article by Principal George Couros.
It’s only a 3-4 minute read.
(And I’m embarrassed to admit I probably wasted more time rationalizing why I didn’t need to read it.)
But Sylvia Duckworth’s colorful visual drew me in.
Sylvia is a French teacher in Toronto and her sketch-notes are incredible.
She captured all 8 characteristics attached to George Couros’ “Innovator’s Mindset.”
This ties in perfectly with the 8 questions Couros believes are good ones to ask during an interview.
Plus, Sylvia expertly “drops in” teeny-tiny think points which amplify every characteristic.
They’re special gifts.
So don’t miss ’em.
I wish I had her talent.
You’ll notice on #6, though, that Sylvia does make use of parentheses.
That gives me hope.
As you can see, those I can do.
