There’s this thing about a dress going around at the moment and it reminds me why I just don’t listen to my inner voice and give up. Give up teaching, give up the job. It’s perspective. Thing is, if I give up, for whatever reason, then ‘they’ve’ won. Not Oftsed or continuity Gove, but those ‘told you so’ people. I’m not giving up because, like Neo in the Matrix, I believe I can make the change. Learning is a beautiful struggle, and those that are charged with its development must struggle too.
Naive? Sure. Do I think I will? No idea – and therein lies the adventure.
‘If you’re dreams don’t scare you, they’re not big enough.’
‘Run when you can; walk when you have to; crawl when you must; just never give up.’
‘I Never ran a thousand miles. I could never do that. I ran one mile a thousand times.’
‘I don’t stop when I’m tired. I stop when I’m done.’
