Rushing to nowhere

The more important the work is-the deeper the lessons are-the more difficult it is to rush. In fact, rushing actually gets you nowhere.

Pushing hard may feel like the right thing to do, but that rush toward accomplishment takes away from the real magic.

Recently, we tried to cram 90 minutes of work into 45 minutes. It didn’t work. We thought we could rush it, but instead we got backlash.

The kicker is that the lessons happen during reflection. Reflection happens when you have time for the ideas to marinate. Rushing prevents both these steps from occurring.

Give more space for reflection and most importantly, value it deeply in any educational context.
