The best part about getting older is realizing that everything you’ve ever been taught about how things are “supposed” to be is fiction. The truth is, there are no rules. Instead, there’s an equal playing field for every single person that decides to create their own version of how things “should” be.
Still, it’s not always easy to have the confidence to create the rules yourself. To stop waiting for permission from someone else.
In this 5 Minute Pick Me Up we discuss how to throw yourself into situations where you have authority so that you can start getting comfortable with making decisions and creating rules even when you might not feel completely ready to do so. We talk about our own experience with this as educators, and why mentoring and teaching has empowered us to understand that no one else is innately better at deciding on how things should be.
