Are we ready?

Peter Bregman uses a kayak trip to illustrate the point of preparation and opportunity. (Don’t miss it – his story is much better than my commentary.)

First, we only have the opportunity at hand. Life’s unpredictabilities make this evident.

Second, we may evaluate preparedness through the question, “If this fails, what would “they” identify as the reason for failure?”

The immediate consequences are normally less for a classroom teacher than for kayakers in Prince William Sound. The long-term consequences remain to be measured.
