Making choices is an act of power. Sometimes, though, we weaken this power by selecting conflicting choices. We may want to be a successful student. We may also equally desire a “stress free” life with an abundance of free time. These decisions do not support one another. Educational endeavors are stressful by nature and require our time.
Neither choice is “right” or “wrong”. The problem only arises when we choose options that are in opposition.
What has brought you here – to this moment?
What are two desires/goals you have in the classroom? Do these choices support one another or do they conflict with one another?
