Success Quote – Aug. 16, 2017
When I watch children at play, this Einstein quote pops into my head. Children imagine in ways we, as adults, have forgotten how to imagine. Epictetus and Shenryu Suzuki desribed the child’s mind as the beginner’s mind where anything can be imagined anew.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
Tomorrow is promised to no one!

In keeping with bell hooks and Noam Chomsky, I consider myself a public and dissident intellectual. Part of my work is to move beyond (transcend) institutional dogmas that bind me to defend freedom, raising my voice to be heard on behalf of those who seek equity and justice in all their forms.
I completed my PhD in Philosophy of Leadership Studies at Gonzaga University, Spokane, WA. My dissertation and research was how teachers experience becoming teachers and their role as leaders.
I focus on leading, communicating, and innovating in organizations. This includes mindfuful servant-leadership, World Cafe events, Appreciative Inquiry, and expressing one's self through creativity. I offer retreats, workshops, and presentations that can be tailored to your organzations specific needs.
I published peer reviewed articles about schools as learning organizations, currere as an ethical pursuit, and hope as an essential element of adult eductaion. I published three poems and am currently preparing my poetry to publish as an anthology of poetry.
I present on mindful leadership, servant leadership, schools as learning organizations, how teachers experience becoming teachers, assessement, and critical thinking. I facilitate mindfulness, hospitality retreats. and World Cafe Events using Appreciative Inquiry.
I am writing and researching about various forms of leadership, how teachers inform and form their identity as a particular teacher, schools as learning organizations, hope and its anticipatory relationship with the future, and hope as an essential element in learning.
We indeed must remember to use our imagination today as we don’t know what the future will hold.
That is so true. We can only imagine what might be, not what will be.
It’s a wonderful quote.
Einstein never disappoints me.
Imagination empowers and enlivens. So much to explore. The universe and beyond 🙂
There is so much to explore and so little time.
Yes. We must step on it 🙂
I like that 😊
Thank you. Einstein never disappoints me.
Take a look on my last post and follow me if you like it 😀.
I did. Thank you for the comment and for stoppng.
Wonderful, like all statements by Albert Einstein. Could this be said to our politicians responsible for education. LOL
No, I don’t think so. Einstein had a way of speaking that politicians lack.
One of my favorite bits of Einstein’s non-math or physics based wisdom. Thanks for sharing!
You are welcome.
I think imagination is the key to knowledge……so true quote.
