Great Thought to Ponder…

ivonprefontaine:

Hard and right go together quite often. I had written quite a bit before Christmas and had sunk back to reading. Reading means I don’t have to do the hard and necessary work of writing which requires me to be present to my ideas and those of others I have read in ways that honour both.

About ivonprefontaine

I have been an educator for almost 20 years. Prior to that, I worked in private industry for 15 years, then returned to university to earn my education degree. For the past 11 years, I have been a co-creator of learning in a unique, progressive, alternative educational school of choice. Currently, I am engaged in a doctoral program at Gonzaga University in Spokane. A main theme in my learning there has been the roles of systems thinking, complexity theory, and organizational theory, and how they apply to education generally and the learning environment I share with students, parents, and colleagues.

  1. I’ve found that there are “long-term harder” decisions and “short-term harder” ones, and while doing what’s “right” might sometimes feel short-term harder they tend to make my life better and easier over the long-run.

    • There is something Taoist in what you say Russ. It extends to things we think did not go right and look back to realize the way it unfolded just right, perhaps better. Kathy is much better at that than me. She will say, “For every door that closes one opens.”

  2. When we keep trying to do the right thing it is like practice. Hopefully after a while it gets easier as it becomes a natural inclination .
