Because Winter is Chill, I stepped back, I observed, and I learned a lot.
Here’s another “Teacher’s Teachable Moment” for Day 2 of Spring.
If you are willing to take some time out and evaluate your impulses and temptations and identify the tools that are best to use in managing them, you too can say
Here’s a list of all the things making the necessary “adaptation” this Winter revealed. While many animals are as “free as birds” to use the “migration” method.
And while I did practice the “hibernation” option when the temperatures were below zero a few times over the season, I’ve been able to use my energy to identify “Teachable Moments.”
I have to ask myself “What temptations impede success?” It became clear I needed a model to remind me to regularly identify tools available for self-improvement.
The model is simple, but it is often tough to execute the model perfectly. That’s why the more you practice doing it well, the better you’ll be.
But before you PRACTICE well you have to ASK A QUESTION of an expert to help you see if you’re doing it correctly.
That’s why mentors are valuable, they are the Heroes.
But once you ask those questions, build your confidence in your own model. Use history as a basis for your personal success. Not every model works the same for everyone.
Don’t depend on it to work the exact same way, but consider the teachable moments.
My teachable moments translates to IERN WILL Educational Consulting‘s TEAMS curriculum. This model of creating personal success redesigns how people think about communities and long-term sustainability. With the help of a community of practice, any learning community can use TEAMS 8 Unit Engineering Curriculum.
The objective of this curriculum is for all learners are being nurtured in a culture where they’re free from the following:
The key to success is having a clear intention. The reason is that intention, much like energy, when put in motion stays in motion. We will explore how the motion of your thoughts and behavior align to our intent.
Topic: Physics/Fluid Dynamics
Explores how often the interference of others dictates the flow of energy or our frequency. Learn how waves are absorbed to either expand or restrict the colliding waves. Making parallels to energy and water flow, and how conservation maters.
2) Any criticism that isn’t constructive.
Especially from yourself. This explores how what we hear, say, and think are interconnected to determine how much or our brain is used and how it thinks.
Just as repetition in athletics leads to muscle reconstruction, the tools we use to challenge ourselves and explore everything the world has to offer to work our brains harder. How are toxins effecting our performance?
3) A misunderstood [broken/disjointed] history.
Exploring familial interactions and networks is a tool to use what was done historically to identify how to best align for future success.
How does this look on an epigenetic scale based on history and the clear effects we know habits have on anatomy and physiology? Could the climate/living conditions of my ancestors effect how my body operates, right now?
4) Kinks out of your mind.
Consider how the trails blazed by our predecessors determines the landscape, terrain, and territory we currently have to increase. To get to know those who have paved the way, we work on bridging inter-generational gaps through hair and wellness.
How have historical figures addressed the relevant social situations of the time? How did those innovations lead to the trends of the time and the tools we currently use? What innovative ways can we use history to support regionalism?
5) Fear of Exposure.
Even in a world where technology allows us to air our dirty laundry socially, we still fear being seen for who we are. The results of limitation should be explored within the parent-child relationship.
Topic: Early Childhood Experiences/Education (ECE)
How have interpretations of our life’s experiences as children translate into the choices we make in our adult lives? How do adults help create the best childhood experiences most efficient to ensure a noble family legacy?
6) Instant Gratification.
We feel entitled to big payout, but abhor slow returns. Getting away from the “Get rich quick” or “5 minute abs” culture is essential for success. Slow and steady helps us create an infrastructure for learning.
Topic: Financial Literacy / Physical Education
How have we missed the mark in fully understanding that familial wealth is generated via a slow & steady process that won’t yield big returns in less than 10 years.
7) Unreasonable Character Assessment
Snap judgments and classification has taken over matters in life and how we teach literacy. It’s necessary to explore where the imagery around us impacts our observation of the world.
Topic: Reading comprehension/Written Composition/Research
How can the way we interpret an author writing effect our interpretation of plot, tone, and character development within a book.
The perception of lack and how it effects human interactions within communities.
How does your body react when fear and danger are presented? Is fear and danger the same thing?
