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. Sincerely, Mrs. Smith Greatness Covey, 2004 THE Conundrum Ron Edmonds, 1982 5 SEE GET DO The Business of Paradigms DISCOVERING THE FUTURE • 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 Taken from Thomas Kuhn’s Joel Barker (1988) 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.

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.

Use only those strategies that have a strong data base. 2. Do them right. Implement them all with passion and fidelity. Covey, 2002 Kukic, 2009 What we know v. What we do Bold Action to Get Serious Results Grow Deep NOT JUST TALLClark 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 Mary Anne Radmacher, 2008 You’ve got to dance like nobody’s watching and love like 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.
