The Innovator’s Mindset
Reflections on Chapter 2
On innovation within constraints.
I am a freelance teacher and my students are business people, lawyers, writers, students, teachers, designers, writers. My students and I share the vision that we are committed to living a better life for ourselves, for the people we love and care and for the communities we are part of.
“Change almost never fails because it’s too early. It almost always fails because it’s too late.” – Seth Godin
To me that “almost never” makes sense for this quote. I find it hard not to question such generalisations. I’ve learnt that they are not always true, and though they work as inspirational for almost everyone, it can be frustrating for others.
Once you stop learning, you start dying – Albert Einstein
- Why do we teach?
- How do we learn?
- What does a successful learner look like?
- What does a successful teacher look like?
This kind of questions are fascinating to me. When I think I get to know the answer, I find myself questioning again and answering them in a different way as I move forward in the amazing process of becoming and being a whole teacher.
