7 Consistency Quotes

7 Consistency Quotes

https://youtu.be/yAZbkQ7M1ng I gathered 7 of my favourite Consistency Quotes for you. And yes, I hope you feel empowered from this post, but, let it be said that it is not motivation that you need, it's drive, it's hunger, it's passion! Consistency Quotes will only get you so far. Motivation   Tony Robbins says - and I'm paraphrasing here. Motivation is like a warm bath, we all need one from time to time.   But motivation fades, and then you need to find more of it to get going again. And, then that motivation fades, and you need to find it again. Each time you become a little more desensitised to it until eventually, the motivation won't work any more... No, it's the burning desire deep down inside of you that keeps you going with the same level of intensity as you had when you first started. It's the unquenchable thirst that comes from a drive to do good, to be better, to give more, to make a difference. And, if you want...

3 Philosophical Concepts Every Teacher Should Apply

3 Philosophical Concepts Every Teacher Should Apply

What is your teaching philosophy? I believe every teacher must include these 3 concepts. This article will briefly introduce each concept but will focus more on how to apply them including reference structures to guide you, allowing you to evaluate your efforts.   Concept 1: Teach For Understanding Understanding = Knowledge + Being   If the learner understands, they'll never forget, and they'll be able to use the new learner to solve problems. This is about coming from the angle of including information plus experience into your lessons. And not stopping until the learner understands.   OK, so how do we do it? First, adopt this mindset and regularly affirm that you always teach for understanding. Focus on providing a minimum ratio of 4:1 of knowledge to being (experience). Help the learner plan ways to gain further experience outside of the classroom. Give exercises Ask them to teach it to someone Set reminders, add it to a schedule   You know your student understands when they say things like “I get it now” and...

80% Of Learning is a Complete Waste of Time

80% Of Learning is a Complete Waste of Time

Not all learning is equal. Most of it is a total waste of time! This is learning support, it will turn you into a powerful learner. If you’re a teacher, you will become more effective.   Is learning a mystical power the elite possess while the rest of us are left with nothing but awe? Of course not, anyone can learn anything… when certain conditions are met.   “What any person in the world can learn, almost all persons can learn if provided with the appropriate prior and current conditions of learning” - Benjamin Bloom     Could the most valuable skills you learn as a human be “how to learn” and “how to teach”? Eban Pagan says “Learning and teaching are the currency of the future. Your leverage lies in your ability to learn and teach as an individual, as a group, and as an organization”.   Wyatt Woodsmall says that your ability to learn anything will depend on four things: The purity of your intent How specific are your outcomes? This article will...

What’s Your Attitude Towards Learning?

Before any mode of learning becomes useful we must first discover your attitude towards learning. If you are familiar with Carol Dweck's work, you’ll know all about the Growth Mindset. At the end of this lecture, we’ll find out what mindset you have. But first, I’m going to briefly tell you why it is important to have a growth mindset and what a growth mindset is. Those with a growth mindset see themselves in a constantly evolving, changing and changeable state, capable of anything they put their mind to. They can take on challenges without fear, handle failures without suffering a loss in motivation and view effort as positive and worthwhile - enabling them to experience great joy and pleasure in the learning process. In fact, they are a process, moving through time, and all they care about is reaching the next step. I hope that from that explanation alone you're starting to see why I believe that this is such vital trait for learners. But what’s really important is the way you feel. It’s...

How Long Should I Practise? The Anti-Thesis

I would like to present an anti-thesis to the question ‘how much should I practice’? I’m sure you’ve been told to practise every day, and that you’ve heard stories of people who practice 3 or 4 hours per day. Well, have you ever been told not to practise? That’s right, never! – well I did say this was an antithesis. A certain group of educators believe that a student need not practise, not one bit. How can this be? Well there is good science to back up this theory. But let us first frame the conversation from the viewpoint of the common student. If you are indeed a drum student, then you’re probably just like every other student in the modern world. You’re learning because it’s fun, you like drumming, you had a certain curiosity around it and, one day, decided to give it a try. You don’t have huge ambitions of playing at Wembley Stadium or The Albert Hall, or dreams of being the next Ringo...
