“As humans we are all guilty of time travelling in life…”
Welcome to The PE Umbrella Podcast, episode 64 and what is the final podcast of a truly remarkable 2016. A year filled with highs and lows on both a professional and personal level has also seen many a guest join me Under the Umbrella to share their top knowledge bombs with you.
During this episode, I attempt to break down my top 5 takeaways from the entire year and share them with you, explaining their importance and impact they had on me. To say this was a tricky job would be an understatement as I can honestly say I learn something from EVERY SINGLE GUEST that I have on the show. This meant I had to be tremendously picky and brutally honest as to what has impacted me the most. As a result, I share with you these top 5 knowledge bombs and you can access them below using the timestamp links and even go back and listen to the entire episode they originally came from. I hope you find them as valuable as I did so here goes…
“A great teacher is always focused on the student, not the lesson” [04:38]
“Shiny object syndrome, don’t get caught up in it” [06:39]
“Start With Why” [09:15]
“Re-engineer Education | Comfort = StopPushing = Predictability = Bored Students” [11:54]
5. Episode 51 – Aaron Beighle (Echoed in Almost ALL episodes)
“Relationships Are KEY” [14:49]
I hope you find even the slightest bit of value and logic in what I discuss during this review episode. A very happy New Year to everybody, may 2017 be the biggest and best year yet on our learning journeys! Here’s to the next 12 months Under the Umbrella! I hope to have you along for the ride!
