5. Dedicate. Do something hard.

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

 

2018 is well and truly under way, now that Australia Day  is behind us and we’re getting back to school and work routines.

This weeks' word is “Dedicate”: I’ve been stressing for weeks about what to write - and then it all became clear when the Australian of the Year awards were announced.

The winners have dedicated much of their lives to things they love and believe in.

I’m excited because 2 of the 4 category winners are teachers: The Australian of the Year, Professor Michelle Simmons, is a teacher and researcher, and Eddie Woo, Local Hero is a visionary high-school maths teacher. It’s great that we're recognising and valuing teachers, who play such an important role in nurturing tomorrows’ leaders.

I’m also excited and inspired by the message given by Professor Simmons who says “Quantum physics is hard. Technology at the forefront of human endeavour is hard. But that’s what makes it worth it. I believe that the things that are most worth doing in life are almost always hard to do- but when you succeed the euphoria is immense”

When we dedicate ourselves to doing something hard, we often have to sacrifice other things – luxuries, time off, holidays – but the rewards can be immense.

Let’s dedicate some time and effort to doing something hard this year. Think of how we’ll feel when it’s done.

We’d love to hear about the things that excite you: things that you’re passionate about, that make you feel rewarded, valued and respected, or that you feel 'just need to be done'.

Have a great week.

Kim.
