The Courage to Learn
A few years ago, I wrote an open letter to adult learners called The Courage to Learn. This simple little article spurred more interesting conversations with people all around the world than any previous work I’d produced. It’s been reprinted in a number of places, leading to even more interesting interactions. The conversations with students of all ages and stages, taking on their various challenges, and the leaders and teachers trying to reach them, were engaging, inspiring, and fun. At other times they were deep dives into very serious and difficlut issues. These are the kinds of dialogues I hope to catalyze here: real conversations about the good, the bad, and the day to day of learning, leadership, creativity, and health. In addition, I hope we can turn this into a resource-sharing vehicle for those of us keenly interested in how we can make a difference with our work in these arenas. Here's to the road ahead!
