I recently graduated with my Master of Arts in Education. So, in continuation with the theme of the week, I wanted to share with you a little bit about a special speaker we had on commencement day. Steve Gilliland, author of “Enjoy the Ride” which was required reading for graduates, was our speaker!
What a treat. I would recommend this book to anyone, because it’s a quick read, and has some great motivations for anyone whether you are an educator or not! His basic philosophy is that life is a journey not a destination, and to enjoy each and every moment of every day. Great reminder for all of us! Here are my five simple take aways from reading this book and hearing Steve speak.
Enjoy The Ride!
1. What would you try to accomplish if you knew you couldn’t fail?
2. You don’t “get the same” You either get better or get worse! So get better.
3. Surround yourself with the type of people you want to become
4. Be careful about letting the trivial become the most important. Decide what is the most important in your life and live by it each and every day.
5. What would you do with the rest of your life if you knew each and every job paid the exact same?
In what ways do you “enjoy the ride” of life? Do tell!
