126: Thought for Teachers: Do You Look Through Your Backup Camera?
Welcome to Episode 126 of the Teachonomy Talks podcast. Today’s episode is a Thought for Teachers episode, and in it I have a single thought for you to ponder that will hopefully give you something to reflect on as you go about your day.
Today’s thought is this: Do You Look Through Your Backup Camera?
When it comes to change in our lives as teachers, things can sometimes become difficult. If we look through our ‘backup camera,’ however, we may just grow more than we ever thought possible.
Let’s talk about it…
Sometimes, the reason we are reluctant to embrace change is because we don’t truly understand it’s purpose. We look at change as something that is trying to replace our expertise, when is reality it can be something that is designed to enhance the skills we already possess. In many cases it can allow us to see the things we never knew we were missing.
Although it is difficult any time our routine is broken or our comfort zone is challenged, the truth is we all have blindspots in our lives. Those of us who are willing to accept the changes that help us to unveil our blindspots, will be the ones who have the greatest impact in the end.
