S2 Episode 28: Beginner's Mind: 4 Simple Approaches to Free Yourself from Impossible Expectations

Welcome to today's episode on Beginner's Mind: 4 Simple Approaches to Free Yourself from Impossible Expectations.

Teachers! Have you ever been stuck in a professional learning or development and told yourself “I already know this! Why am I here? This is not only boring but a waste of my time!” Or what about when an administrator gave you some feedback and you thought to yourself “Okay! Whatever! Next! I am the one who is doing this every day! I am the expert on what I need!” 

When those thoughts and feelings come up, that is the perfect moment to practice having a Beginner’s Mind. We will be sharing so many stories of when we did NOT practice Beginner’s Mind and how we had to learn the hard way how to get curious and free ourselves from all the expectations around us and inside of us. Being an expert isn’t a bad thing. But using Beginner’s Mind will help you take one step at a time, let go of prejudgments, and find a sense of inquiry where you welcome and focus the questions not just the answers.

BONUS: Joel and Jessie have created a Free Guide just for you! - 6 Steps To A Killer Workflow. These steps have completely transformed our experience as educators over the years. With this guide, you’ll work through 6 key aspects we’ve identified in our own workflow and what we do to actually feel done working. Yes, it’s possible to feel “done!” (And taking your work home over the weekend is NOT in that guide!)

Check out the Free Guide in the podcast link below!

Co-Hosts: Jessie Gebauer & Joel Carlovsky
