ACCEPT: Weather Happens

ACCEPT:  Weather happens.

“What am I going to do?  It’s supposed to snow Wednesday and Thursday and projects are due and how am I going to possibly make sure everyone has studied for the quiz?  If we don’t take the quiz on Thursday that pushes it to next Monday and I’m out for a workshop and then the kids won’t know anything and will never get a job and the world will end.”

Or . . .

Focus on what you can do today.  Make a list.  Keep it short.  What can we accomplish and what’s the most interesting, compelling and important way we can do that?  What learning will my students take from today that they didn’t have yesterday or that they may need to tomorrow?  Maybe it’s understanding one concept or finishing a single draft or completing one circuit? Maybe it’s a one-to-one conference that reveals a single a-ha moment. Maybe it’s a candid conversation about something that matters — a lot.

ACCEPT: Weather happens. Focus on time you have, rather than time you don’t. Make today powerful awesome.

Accept. Communicate. Trust.
