Over the weekend I read THIS POST that opened with:
Today at the annual American Montessori Conference, Mitchel Adler, the keynote speaker, challenged everyone in the audience to write a personal mission statement.
Inspired, I drafted my own Mission Statement:
I aspire to be the kind of person who never stops learning. Learning to me means I read lots to understand how best to live in the world. Learning to me means I write lots knowing that by writing, I come to understand my world and then by more writing, I can change my world. Learning to me means I reflect often by asking lots of questions about what is working and what could be better and then taking the steps toward the better.
