My Top 5 Lessons From 2021

#1: No one ever bypasses emotion to reach a successful outcome

#2: Success isn’t a destination

#3: We are in control of our experiences

  1. I can take control of my time if I act strategically, rather than use commitments as an excuse. Teachers and systems run on carefully crafted schedules, which I can use to my advantage.
  2. School and activities that I spend a majority of my day on don’t have to be passive learning time, but only if I actively find value in them

#4: Inertia and creating opportunity for progress

#5: Plans are meant to be living documents
