Preparing for the Future

 

Over the years,

I’ve heard many educators

talking about preparing

students for the future.

 

They discuss

getting students ready

for next year

or for middle school

or for high school

or for college.

 

Students would often

be better served

if educators

spent their time discussing

how to get students

ready for

next week

or tomorrow

or the afternoon

or the next five minutes

or three minutes

or the next minute.

 

If we focus on the minutes,

The years will take care of themselves.
