Joie de vivre

Every teacher recognizes the vast difference between an unengaged student and one who is on fire with learning. When enthusiasm catches hold, great things happen. The word enthusiasm comes from the Greek enthous, which means, “possessed by a god, inspired.”

Making exuberant enjoyment of life a priority is unusual for most people, yet it at the center of profound effectiveness. Knowing what makes you tick and cultivating it has far-reaching, positive reverberations in all areas of performance.

What are your greatest joys and how do you give expression to them in your work?
