You Can't Get to the Store with your Eyes Closed (2014- Blog #67)
Saturday, March 08, 2014
Did you see the articles this week about the "new" SAT test? It sparked a good conversation between DH and me today. What's the point of an education and do we actually measure our society's goals for education.. Such stuff like that :)
At one point we chatted about goals and the importance of measuring our movement towards goals. Should we actually measure anything in schools and if so what? And if so, why? At one point he said, "Well you cannot get to the store with your eyes closed." SO TRUE!!! Regardless of why we want to get to the store, we really can't get there without a plan, without checking about our place in the journey, without checking our footing, without making decisions about which way to turn next.. We do check to see if we are on the right rack. We do check if we are getting closer?
He made me realize how important it is to keep my eyes wide open and honest while I work towards my health goals. Regardless of if I choose a goal that is close in time or far away, I must keep my eyes precisely on the entire trip towards the goal. Can't close my eyes at anytime for threat of crashing into barriers along the way.
Keep your eyes open today, people!!
