  • The easiest is # 1 and 2. I know where I want to go whether it is a certification, certificate or presentations for staff and what it is going to take to get there and I just do it. The hardest is #4 and 71/2. Never really feel like I get it! When I think I have it and carry on a conversation about it others make me doubt myself. Finally figuring out why. We have learned it in different ways and perceived in different ways–STIL working on this one. Play I am usually so busy taking what I have learned and presenting it to others I don’t take the time to enjoy.

  • Each easier to affirm than to practice. #1: having an encompassing context to which discoveries relate fosters richly connected concepts. But a goal or even just a direction can be forgotten in the heat of #7.5 play. Play takes on a life of its own, too tightly shackling it to a goal damps the passion. Balance! (#1 + #7.5)/2 = #4.25, round to #4: Be confident that the end your play tends to will reward.

  • Habit #7 is easiest for me because I love watching others grow and achieve their potential. It is easy for me to devote this time because it gives me such reward. On the flip side, Habit #6 is hardest for me (because I am old)... no seriously, because I did not grow up in the hi tech world and am trying to change years of habit. That is why I am so excited about Learn Camp!
