SparkCoach visualization - bucket list

Saturday, August 17, 2013

"Think about 3 things that are on your bucket list. What goal would you go for if anything was possible? What can you do to feel like that in your life today?"

I don't have an official bucket list. I just checked my "On Hold" items in OmniFocus and the only thing I thought of based on that was taking a train trip through the mountains out west. That doesn't seem like something you "go for," just something you plan and do. I don't think I have any huge, life-changing goals...I guess I'm pretty happy with my life and am just focused on being the best I can be in the roles I already have (hence following my principal's implicit suggestion to try out the new Flipped Classroom teaching strategy, doing PD on my own, etc.). Is it bad not to have a bucket list, if I'm already pretty happy?

Let me reframe the visualization. If I accomplished the (regular-sized) goals I do have set for myself, I would feel great for having accomplished them, and would also get to enjoy the benefits they bring (a better relationship with my students, better-behaved classes, more energy, greater endurance, more pride in my appearance, cleaner feeling inside, etc.). What I can do to feel like that now is to see each step as a mini-accomplishment and take pride that I am taking action to bring my goals closer to completion. I think that is a very necessary approach to take at work as I feel like good teachers are constantly revising their practice to get better and better...we're never done!

Not really sure what SparkCoach was looking for, but there ya go.
