Your Best

 

Your best readers read a lot.

Your best athletes engage with sports a lot.

Your best artists draw a lot.

Your best singers sing a lot.

Your best dancers dance a lot.

Your best gamers play video games a lot.

 

Yes, they have support.

Yes, they have opportunity.

Yes, they receive quality feedback.

 

But as a general rule,

if you want a student to become better at something,

increasing volume

will increase capability.

 

If you want to increase volumeā€¦

 

Make it meaningful.

Make it relevant.

Make it special.

Make it unique.

Make it worthwhile.

Make it deliberate.

Make it fun.

 

Notice it.

And care about it.

 

Give them support.

Give them opportunity.

Give them quality feedback.

 

And give it your best.
