Day 132 (of 186) secret missions

Everyone has a secret mission. There are always desires people have that they wish would come true. Especially in education.

A lot of people would love to write a book (but the editing process can be painful)

Many are trying to get on better shape (but temptations are everywhere – and so often more affordable than choices that would help us on our mission)

Some learners secretly wish that they could read for enjoyment the way many others do….sometimes even teachers

Sometimes secret missions are conducted because while there is something desired, to not achieve the mission could be embarrassing, but like in spy movies, unsuccesses can be disavowed – like it never happened….

Secret missions are the hidden part of risk taking. Sometimes they need to be partially visible to gain support. Every mission deserves a support team…..someone who can be a cheerleader – or identify connections you might just miss.

In other words, whatever your “secret” mission is, don’t be afraid to utilize a support team – even the spy movies have a team supporting the hero…

…although the team needs to be people you trust – because there has to be trust when sharing a risk being undertaken! You don’t want to be laughed at or having a secret shared….at least not until it’s been successful, right? Same in life as in the classroom.

Be mindful that more secret missions are being undertaken than you may know – so keep an eye open to see if there are people working on something that you might be able to support – or even encourage!
