2021 – Building It

2022 – Is This Another One of Your Great Ideas?

the sai alongside,
Huh?
Good ideas,
bad ideas,
great ideas,
every ideas always,
you know,
like,
I can't believe I didn't think about this like 10 years ago and then you rewind the clock and it's like 10 years ago,
it's a great idea,
Oh,
you should start up your school,
it's a great idea.
And it's like,
you're all excited,
you start up your school and you set all your things in place and the ego inside your head telling you this is gonna be a big success,
this is gonna work out and everything,
all your problems in the world are gonna be solved.
And then you realize that,
you know,
that that big idea gets knocked down,
boom,
boom boom,
knocked down by after talking to parents after testing it with kids after realizing you can't do what you say,
you could do and all these promises that you made to yourself and you're like breathe,
you know,
just sit down and breathe.
And and it's funny because,
you know,
people always ask me,
it's like when you started your school 10 years ago,
you know,
you haven't stopped building it yet,
you know,
it's not finished yet.
It's like,
well,
it's like a forever project.
It's like,
you know,
these complex challenges of working with people on a daily basis.
They never,
they never get easy,
they just change and every child offers a different,
complex situation that requires me to,
you know,
sort of like work around and it's difficult,
you know,
and then the added complexity of teaching your own son gets harder.
So it's like,
and then as I get older,
I learned to see things from a different perspective and suddenly the world changes again.
It's like,
it's like when does it get easier?
It's like,
well I know my answer never will.
But nonetheless,
nonetheless,
you know,
I have to have these great ideas and I have to test them out because I'm a curious guy.
So,
so the the great idea right now,
which I know it comes with,
you know,
some bad medicine is like how can I make,
you know,
an easy explainer for my content for the students,
for the teachers,
for for me,
for my wife,
for the parents who join my my program every month.
It's like,
you know,
it's like you know these best practices what makes an idea what what what is so simple to understand that you can just see it and understand it and you know,
so I have pictures of you know,
blocks and things.
So like kids see ah there's blocks.
I get to make blocks.
I like making blocks.
You know,
you you you listen their previous experiences but the same child,
I say,
oh blocks.
I hate blocks.
But you know like kids,
you know what,
they they have one bad experience that they don't they don't have the baggage that grownups have over like years of hating blocks.
You know,
they're simple and you know like I have words for parents and for teachers who are like who are able to put together these complicated,
complex or complicated,
you know,
teaching practices and say,
I see what he's doing,
he's he's using this theory,
he's using this strategy and he's trying to achieve these these bigger,
you know,
he's trying to apply this research that hasn't been known to work,
you know,
and kids don't see that kids see like the picture,
they see the games,
they see the fineness and they don't see what's happening outside of their own small little narrow focal point as as I can't see into my unknowns.
And that's scary.
So that night I'm sharpening my knife or to keep my skills on top of things,
so hopefully I can overcome my own,
you know,
darkness,
but so so so at the start of the month I made this and now the great idea is like,
well,
what do I do with it next?
So the theme this week is building things.
So I'm curious should I build it on the computer?
And it kind of always,
like,
I know I've been bruised before,
I know I've been hurt before,
but nonetheless,
you know,
like,
I'm trying to I'm trying to take creative control over my process is so I can use my insights and my knowledge to to to build up something better than I had before.
And so this is what I'm working on right now and it's not complete,
like I'm not too sure if I want to add images to these because images changed and when you add like text to images then you can't just easily edit it.
And I know that yet I've already prepared this,
I've already sent it to the parents,
so I,
you know,
I just took a quick little screenshot and I embedded it in there and so you know,
this is what I'm doing right now and what if and and and my future self is like,
well okay,
I can do that today,
but do I have time to do that for like every episode that I teach,
you know,
like if I go to episode 10,
I haven't started this process,
I've got a lot of it written down,
I've got a lot of it written down in books,
but but I'm always scared to take certain things to,
I'm scared to build to the next level because I know that when I build it out to the next level scaling,
it is gonna be a whole new set of challenges and if I'm scale the wrong thing,
then it just,
it eats up so much energy eats up so much time eats up so many,
you know,
money and resources I just don't have and I'm totally aware of that I'm like,
well who do I talk to because a lot of time,
my friends to the right and left of me aren't,
aren't doing these projects because they they've been bruised too,
but trying to take on projects that were way out of their,
you know,
skill set and that happened to me 10 years ago when I started this project,
you know,
I just jumped in as I always do,
you know,
I think first do it,
do it right the first time but never could and last I'm still still here trying to build out these things because I got the urge to do it alright,
it's friday,
so I'm gonna go outside and do a little happy dance for because I don't have to wear a mask outside anymore,
so I love it.
Talk to you later.
Bye bye.
