    Will keep an eye out for similar articles.

    In the meantime, there’s an exercise that your response reminded me of. Not so much to stay on the glass half-full side of things, but just to serve as a reminder of how resilient we can be, which we tend to forget after the fact. The exercise is to identify the three things in your life that you are most grateful for. And then, one at a time, trace each one back in time, looking at all of the dominos that had to fall to get you to that thing, until you get to something, which at the time, seemed like bad news or a real setback. Like you describe in your example above, often the things that we are grateful for result from some sort of challenge that we have to move past or some circumstance we have to react to in ways we otherwise wouldn’t have…


There's an LIVE component too! (for educators)

If you’d like to explore some of the most essential skills and techniques in the course live, with a cohort of curious, thoughtful, supportive, and like-minded educators (and a few mildly irreverent or benevolently sarcastic folks mixed in to make sure we don’t get too serious), that’s also an option!

Starting Thursday, February 3rd, we’ll meet via Zoom once a week, and go through selected strategies related to effective practice, managing nerves, and achieving flow states under pressure. We’ll do some in-class playing experiments (don’t worry – you’ll be muted!), short weekly homework assignments, and small-group breakout sessions to help you integrate these new skills into your teaching.

This 6-week live course is normally $199, but is available at 50% off the regular cost when bundled with Beyond Practicing. For more details about the live course (and dates) CLICK HERE.
