Coaching people has taught me clarity is key to goal success, however, google maps taught me how clear I really have to be in order to achieve my goals. In this article I share one of my favorite goal setting metaphors.
What if school opened at 5am and closed at midnight? What if student participated in activities other than class? What if local entrepreneurs also used the space at night as a collaborative working space? What if they became mentors to high school students? What if they became collaborators? What if they became partners? What if working together they started new businesses? And what if along the way, all of this inspired and motivated students to master all of the state-mandated content because in comparison it just seemed so easy? In this post, I discuss all of this and pose other questions.
