1. George – Glad you are enjoying the book – one of the lines that jumped out at me and was a reason that I wanted to share the book with you was on page 20 – "the best and only thing that one artist can do for another is to serve as an example and an inspiration." Thanks for constantly doing this and for creating a forum where we can all share with other Connected Principals! Two weeks until Educon!

  2. A great post, George. The one that speaks to me the most right now is "The undertaking of any enterprise or endeavour whose aim is to help others.". RIght now, I am spending huge amounts of my own time at home trying to help educators get connected and provide them with resources to help them with their learning situation. My nights are on my couch with my wife and my laptop (after the kids go to bed) trying to find new links and tools to help my staff and students. And yet I find that from time to time, I get comments about being "the Twitter guy" or "focused too much on technology" as if I am not focused on things at my school. It is so frustrating–my ENTIRE focus is on my school, almost to a fault, and most of my connected time is into the wee hours of the night so that I can meet the daily needs of running a school with my great admin team.

    However, I need to read this book, because like you, I believe that we have to continuously look to find ways to make our schools and districts the best that they can be for our students and the community regardless of the adversity we meet.

    Thanks for this.
