There seems to be a correlation between the folks who wait to be told what to do and the folks who complain about what they are told to do. They are usually the same people!
Some folks are so busy forging on with great teaching and learning that they don't wait for much! Ron Clark, National Teacher of the Year and founder of The Ron Clark Academy says that these folks are runners and they are too busy running ahead doing things that are best for kids to wait to be told what to do. And they are definitely too busy to complain about it!
Brene Brown, author of Daring Greatly, says that when we are willing to own our story, we can write our own ending. Don't wait for someone to tell you what to do. Don't let someone else write your story. Wake up each day and ask yourself, "How can I be better today than I was yesterday?" Then go be better!
