Thank you so much for all you do,
Hitting the Target
In this training, the presenters used the analogy of goals as targets instead of just a hit or miss. This spoke to me then and still does today as I continue my journey in education. Seeing the goal as a target, you still aim for the bull's eye, but you honor wherever you land on the target. The target isn't just the bull's eye! There are many other spots to land and you get credit for them as well! Imagine that! Getting points for missing...but then again, you're really not missing. (You're just not hitting the bull's eye.)
It was a huge "aha" moment for me and many years later it still resonates with me. As we wrap up the school year and I sit here today reflecting, I remind myself that even if I miss the bull's eye, I can still celebrate hitting the target!
