When we have the opportunity to explain our thinking we automatically make connections. These connections happen in many different ways.
- We connect with people in a way that we are getting them to see what we see. Shift their thinking.
- We connect with ourselves because we deepen our own understanding of what we are explaining. Shift our thinking.
- We connect with our learning as a way of building more confidence and believing in what we are communicating. Lift our learning.
I really value the word connection. Why? Because it moves us, it shifts our thinking from one place to another.
If this is not happening, then what is actually happening? It is just busy work. Busy work keeps us busy like a working bee. Nothing really happens though. It is hands on.
When we are making connections it is minds on.
Which is more important to you and why? Minds-on or hands-on?
