We recently visited a potential school for our daughter.
As we sat down to listen to the introductory talk one of the first things shared in the opening talk was this…
“If you’ve come here with an expectation that we are going to teach your young child how to code or program, think again”!
Any yet perhaps not in the formal classroom but outside of it, programming can actually be quite a fundamental practice to consider.
Check this out from Eker.
“Your programming leads to your thoughts; your thoughts lead to your feelings; your feelings lead to your actions; your actions lead to your results. Therefore, just as is done with a personal computer, by changing your programming, you take the first essential step to changing your results.”
Perhaps then, it’s not up to a teacher or school or class to teach ya how to program.
Perhaps it’s on us, on you…on me?
How we ‘program’ or feed our mind and experiences with thoughts + feelings + actions that lead to results that align with our potential is a choice we’ve got more control over.
Sure there are gonna be the unexpected + challenges that stretch us and put our current ‘programming’ to the test.
Sure we are not always gonna get it right.
Yet that’s’ the beauty of the learning process.
Define, discover and develop your own ‘programming’. As in what are the thoughts + feelings + actions that contribute towards your own wellbeing?
Thoughts of appreciation, confidence, possibility - want those?
Feelings of joy, humour, inspiration – looking for those?
Actions towards creativity, vitality, planning – looking for those?
Here’s the thing. There is no ‘right’ answer to this. Just the one’s you discover + test.
What programming + testing in your own context would you need to try to increase thinking, feeling and acting in ways that promote your well – being + potential?
