Just Sharpen the Pencils

Do you ever find yourself in the midst of mundane tasks thinking about all the other things you have to do?

I heard this great analogy the other day about people who get in the shower, already planning what they want to say in their Monday morning meeting.  In all honesty, I even fall into this trap.  By the time I’m drying my hair, I have planned my conversations with 3 other people.

I’m willing to bet this happens to you, too.  It happens to most people! So think, are you really aware of what you’re doing. Or, are you sharpening pencils, replaying the conversation you just had with your administrator?  Are you listening to the break room chatter from colleagues? Or are you simply thinking about what you have to pick up for dinner on the way home?

Today’s EdCloset On-Demand tip will help you get out of your own way and clear out space in your mind for the real imaginative, creative ideas to bubble to the surface.
