I am in Boston for a meeting today. A pretty quick in & out visit. I brought along a stack of papers to grade and toted them to breakfast with me. To my fruition, I didn't grade a single paper. I blame my impromptu breakfast mates - a lovely family from California.
It turns out the family homeschools their two sons - you know, I appreciate thoughtful homeschooling - and the mom was such a wealth of insightfulness that I literally took notes. Yes, having a regular conversation over breakfast taking notes. That's me. Slightly geeky.
Which made me think. When you are open to opportunity, delightful things can happen.
Now, I just need to grade this stack of papers, attend my meeting, and find a bookstore before my flight this evening. The mom recommended two books for me. Have you read Ingenius or Creating Innovators?
Open to opportunity,
PS - College students who have taken Educational Psychology with me, you'll laugh when I tell you which book the high school-aged son was reading. Daniel Pink's Drive! Could this family be any cooler?
