During this time of year, there are pivotal and memorable transitions occurring. From new grades to prom to graduation, these life transitions set the stage for our performances in life. Education introduces us to a process of learning and one we should value. Education requires adults to be mentors and role models, not only to kids but also to other adults. It is necessary for us all to position ourselves to be teachable and accountable. We cannot ask of the kids what we do not offer. We are in a generation where we seek out the shortcuts to our desired goals rather than the hard knocks of the “learning” process. It is in the transitions of the process, we receive the richness in the lessons of life. As we know, education is not restricted to the school setting. Seize an opportunity that will inspire you to become a creative designer for your life, and extend that mindset to those around you.
