Know Your Mainsail

I almost titled this post, "Anchor Yourself", which would have been a mistaken. Instead, keeping the nautical theme, the above is much more appropriate and what I ultimately wish for my students, all students. By now, my guess is that the juggling has begun: courses, assignments, timelines . . . goals. Do not allow yourself to become distracted. Do not confuse activity with accomplishment. Do not anchor yourself! Although boats in the harbour are safe, what do they learn? Ride the winds this year! Enjoy the journey, in times both tumultuous and still, while all the while keeping eye on your mainsail and the wind at your back . . .
