Do you remember being in the7th grade? It is an easy one for me, I had the unique opportunity to partake in a one year program (standard school year) and stretched it to two.
A pessimist would say I failed and need to repeat in order to relearn what I didn't know. An optimist would disagree and clearly state that you have a fresh canvas to paint. For me, it comes down to asking bigger questions:
1) What did I learn?
2) What changed?
3) How do I embrace change?
4) What is possible?
5) What lessons have I learned and how will I apply them?
Transformation happens when we ask difficult thoughtful questions of ourselves and seek a different outcome
"First comes thought; then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality. The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination." Napoleon Hill
Most recently (June) we wrapped up our first annual Edge Challenge Contest. We reached out to Students, Teachers, Faculty and early stage Start-up Companies. The initial goal was to have each contestant share their vision to how they would transform a learning experience inside and outside the classroom.
