I really like number seven, “Focus on getting better rather than being good.” At first I was taken aback; Why shouldn’t we focus on being good? Then I read closer and saw that they were talking about looking for opportunities each day to be a better teacher.  Changing your focus like that can be very empowering as you will create opportunities to be better rather than focusing on things that didn’t go as planned.  It’s always helpful to focus on what you can do rather than what you missed.

Which tip made most of an impact on you?
