“If patterns go too long unexamined, they become our prisons.”
-Dewitt Jones (National Geographic Photographer)
Omgosh, looooove this idea. It is so true! It makes me think of all those veteran, older teachers out there who are stuck in their ways and never adapt to newer teachings strategies or technologies that could improve the quality of education their students receive. Just in general, though, this principle is universally applicable. We need to be ever watchful of our ways to see if they are helping us or possibly hindering us. If they are doing the latter, something needs to change. And as we all know, acknowledgement of a problem is the first step. From there, awareness changes behavior.
Is there a pattern of yours that you need to re-examine?
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith….”
(2 Corinthians 13:5)
