No lecturing and no spotlight

Root training
Root did an exceptional job of empowering individual facilitators at every table.

 

classroom facilitation
Each table had it’s own facilitator. The facilitator guide was uniquely designed – have never seen anything like it.

 

Invited to the four-hour new employee orientation, i had the privilege to walk around freely and observe all eight tables.

The facilitator was simply that, a facilitator.

There was no lecturing.

The was no spotlight.

It was a crazy-creative approach to classroom teaching.

It was cool to witness every table facilitator do the same thing as all the others, but with their own personality – the content was spelled out to a “T” and there was no deviating from it.

The consistency of delivery was striking.

What i had expected was one or two facilitator sharing the stage all afternoon.

Never happened.

Old emails from 2010

Epcot water pool
If this was a reflection pool (at Epcot, in 2012), what would we see in ourselves?

 

Removed the name of the person who commented on my Facebook conversation:

“I hope I’m wrong about this but it sounds like the exchange between you and Carl is you don’t care about what anyone else thinks…even about those who do struggle with depression or the lack of motivation everyday…all that matters is your ” happy, motivated everyday attitude and to the rest be damned”. If that be true for you both it’s a very self centered view. To be sure life is short but in part we’re here to help those who do struggle everyday. I think you need to get your “give a damn” fixed.”

Not sure how to comment on the reflection i’m having from an eight-year od FB conversation, but this is the one thing i’m leaning on now: Let she who has not sinned, cast the first stone.

Final note: This was placed in a file in 2010 with the intent to let some time pass and then respond unemotionally. Totally forgot about it until the recent email purge (in 2018).

Who or what is your daily beacon?

Updated a driving beacon with State Farm yesterday. This pic reminds me of how wonderful God is.

 

God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn’t do.  – conventional wisdom

Gone-forever opportunity

18th birthday
The deadline coincided with seeing our son reach 18. This photo marked that accomplishment, two days ago.

 

As i approach the final six months of the original 10-year plan, and get closer to six months left until June 8, 2019, the intensity of wanting to teach is increasing to a new level.

Why?

Well, and i’ve been thinking about this for a month, there’s more at stake and less to lose.

Once you’re dead and gone, the opportunity, in person, is gone forever.

It’s the “gone forever opportunity” that is fueling the desire to get more real – or go to the grave with unspoken ideas, wishes, hopes, love.

Fear is a liar (video)

 

Everyone is going through a hell no one knows about (including me, including you).

If you don’t feel close to God, guess who moved?

This is a hopeful song that just played while I walk to the gym.

And this post is being created as i walk.
