What do students see in their teacher?

Life is a play that does not allow testing. So sing, cry, dance, laugh and live intensely, before the curtain closes and the piece ends with no applause. – Charlie Chaplin

When traveling I tend to look at life differently. I see and think about life in a way that would have never passed through my mind while in the daily routine. Starting a company and being a teacher, it’s so hard to balance life and work.

But I recently thought about how perceptive my students are and what it teaches them to see their teacher completely submerged in work. Is this the type of people we are hoping to develop? As their role model, how do we want to condition them to imagine themselves? If we could speak to their future selves, would we tell them to find more time for their kids, find more time for themselves, or value time over money?

In the end, do we do it for the applause or do we do it for the desire to live in the moment. Carpe Diem
