Plain and simple - too many great ideas - too little time! How often is that the case -> almost always!
I sat down this morning to think about my upcoming session with college students with learning disabilities. My focus for the annual retreat is always about helping students recognize their strengths. In the past I relied heavily on Howard Gardner’s work on multiple Intelligences and Martin Seligman’s work on happiness. It’s so hard to think of leaving the work on happiness behind, so I continuously find ways to reinvent the content and the activities.
Once I sat down to work, literally 12 minutes later I had written the objectives for the hour and mindmapped my way through the content and activities. It was an avalanche of ideas and my concern was - can we really get through all these activities and have the time to speak comfortably about the content, the answers generated from the activities, and tie it all together?... I guess I will find out the night of the event - it’s going to be an exciting challenge!
