What does this make you think about? Quite a few of you will recognise this Chinese proverb, and I think it is interesting to reflect on this as summer starts to draw to an end.
Now, don’t get me wrong – I still intend to go to the beach a lot this summer! But I am also beginning to plan the autumn – that special time when we can feel inspired to make great changes. Going back to school. Looking for the perfect graduate job. These start at this time of year, and we need to get it right!
Tell me what you will be doing to start carrying those stones!
I, for one, will be continuing to do more unplugging of my devices, eating more carefully, and enjoying more time with my family.
I will also be making a speaking tour of schools in China, and giving a series of classes and workshops in Singapore. My book will be published, and I will be planning to attend an extraordinary conference for women in India, and an amazing event about education in Portugal.
What are you going to do to make sure that your life is as interesting for you as mine is for me when you are my age?
