									 Back in the Day or
 Back to the Future?
          Steve Kukic
 VP, Strategic Sales Initiatives
30 Years Older than Back in the Day
            (Here's the reply the teacher received the following day)
Dear Mrs. Jones,
I wish to clarify that I am not now, nor have I ever been, an exotic dancer.
I work at Home Depot and I told my daughter how hectic it was last week before the
blizzard hit. I told her we sold out every single shovel we had, and then I found one
more in the back room, and that several people were fighting over who would get it.
Her picture doesn't show me dancing around a pole. It's supposed to depict me selling
the last snow shovel we had at Home Depot. From now on I will remember to check
her homework more thoroughly before she turns it in.
Mrs. Smith

                                           • Avoid paradigm paralysis
                                           • Be open to change
• Paradigms can set boundaries
                                           • Help shape change rather that be
• Paradigms can provide rules                controlled by it

• Paradigms can give comfort

• Paradigms can promote the
  status quo

• Paradigms can inhibit growth

 The Structure of Scientific Revolutions
It ought to be remembered that there is nothing
more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to
conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than
to take the lead in the introduction of a new
order of things.
Because the innovator has for enemies all those
who have done well under the old conditions,
and lukewarm defenders among those who may
do well under the new.

      The Essence of Reform

In our rush to reform education, we have forgotten a simple
truth: reform will never be achieved by renewing
appropriations, restructuring schools, rewriting curricula,
and revising texts if we continue to demean and dishearten
the human resource called the teacher on whom so much
depends. Teachers must be better compensated, freed
from bureaucratic harassment, given a role in academic
governance, and provided with the best possible methods
and materials. But none of that will transform education if
we fail to cherish—and challenge—the human heart that is
the source of good teaching.

Key Moments

There are two principle-centered commitments.
1. Do the right thing.
   Use only those strategies that have a strong
   data base.
2. Do them right.
    Implement them all with passion and fidelity.

What we know v. What we do
Bold Action to Get Serious Results
       Karen Kaiser
Like wind rustling my leaves and bending by boughs, life flows from season to
season. Even in the darkness it moves on, straining for the light. Unfailingly,
the night gives in to dawn.
Life is ever changing, always new. Many yesterdays slip into today. Yet, each
sunrise offers a fresh new day. Tomorrow can never be now and for one of
us…may never be known.
Make the most of your moments and remember, change is not merely
necessary for life,
     Life is change…Growth is optional…
     Choose wisely.
                  The Paradoxical Commandments
                  of Leadership

1.   People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered: love them anyway.
2.   If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives: do good anyway.
3.   If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies: succeed anyway.
4.   The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow: do good anyway.
5.   Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable: be honest and frank anyway.
6.   The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the
     smallest minds: think big anyway.
7.   People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs: fight for a few underdogs anyway.
8.   What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight: build anyway.
9.   Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth: give the world
     the best you have anyway.
                                                                           Kent Keith, 2002

You’ve got to dance
like nobody’s

you’ll never get hurt.
            The Secret O’ Life by James Taylor

The secret o’ life is enjoying the passage of time.
Any fool can do it. There ain’t nothin’ to it.

Nobody knows how we got to the top of the hill.
Since we’re on our way down, we might as well enjoy the ride.

The secret o’ love is in opening up your heart.
It’s okay to feel afraid. Don’t let that stand in your way.
‘Cause anyone knows that love is the only road.

Since we’re only here for a while, might as well show some style.
Give us a smile.

Isn’t it a lovely ride? Slidin’ down, glidin’ down.
Try not to try too hard. It’s just a lovely ride.
Now, the thing about time is that time isn’t really real.
It’s just your point of view. How does it feel for you?
Einstein said he could never understand it all.
Planets are spinning through space.
Smile upon your face. Welcome to the human race.
Some kind of lovely ride. I’ll be slidin’ down, I’ll be glidin’ down.
Try not to try too hard. It’s just a lovely ride.
Isn’t it a lovely ride? See me slidin’ down, glidin’ down.
Try not to try too hard. It’s just a lovely ride.

The secret o’ life is enjoying the passage of time.
