Great Thought to Ponder…

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.

Practical Practice Management


“I have found this statement to be very true.  But once you start doing the right thing, it becomes much easier to do all of the time.”

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school. My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. Teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.

  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 .

  3. Thank you for sharing.

    Practice makes things easier as Carl said.
