The power of connecting with why we do what we do
Today’s episode is talking about the ultimate source of resourcefulness: the power of connecting to the reasons why we do what we do. Particularly at this time, when the world is facing some major challenges - we all need to connect with our reasons why to have the motivation to get going in the morning. Many teachers around the world are being asked to teach remotely: teaching via the internet right into students homes. This is something that most of us would have never considered even a possibility a few months ago, and yet here we are doing it.  So with being asked to teach remotely, plus the frustrations that are a part of our regular jobs, we need to find more resourcefulness inside of ourselves to make things happen, and this podcast will give you a few ideas to think about to help in this area.
