When you achieve what you thought was impossible
That moment - you know you all have them - when you do something you were just sure was going to be an epic-fail. I had a huge hurdle I thought was going to be my downfall this semester and it turned out to be one of those moments.
It wasn't a paper, a presentation, or even a major exam; it was the handwriting sample.
What? Me afraid of a little ol' handwriting sample? Can't an adult even write her ABC's legibly? Sheesh!
This time, I tried something different. After all, I'm going to be a teacher - it's do or die. I practiced again, only this time I treated it like I was drawing. I treated it as copying a cartoon or sketch - verrrrry slowly - and it worked!
Have you ever had to change your approach to a challenge? What works for you?
