Make a decision and live with it…

At a cool 49 degrees in East Texas, it is ripe for voting weather wherever you are. (People in the northeast, I pray you find shelter and heat.) As voters decide their presidential hopeful today, I find myself needing to find organization and hope of knocking out new trainings, webinars, excitement, anxiety all with a lovely thing called change. Maybe we should add to the only things certain in life our death, taxes and…change.

ARCL brainsharks (rapid online learning)

Territory changes – handing over, absorbing, learning, planning

Open Enrollment – hallelujah we return to Blue Cross Blue Shield

Town Hall Meetings – are we catching the excitement

Out in the field – is supposed to fall into place somewhere this week

Dallas Meeting – all next week with on-site training so this month has two solid weeks of opportunities to be face to face and one is almost gone

This is not a whine list. It is getting back into the habit of writing so that my future writing flows better. As Jeffrey Gitomer practices (and seems to have worked), each morning get up and write something…anything.

I have enjoyed being with my family as the road warrior has a constant battle. Put food on the table and be actively involved in my family’s daily life during the weekdays and not just the weekends. This time feels like the calm before the storm where we/I am ramping up in preparation and the dam is going to break where I/we flood  our opportunities with solutions for students. This time is also exciting as we will have more specific solution tools to meet the needs of varying districts. As a husband and father, I feel like I need to do a better job of balancing both worlds. As a salesman, my mind is racing and thinking about opportunities.

Dear Lord, while I think I know what I am doing, I am confident that you can see further in all directions beyond the lamp for my feet and the light for my path. Please direct me with understanding, love me with grace and infuse me with passion for all things that I do – most importantly with my family.


About jasonefennell

Hi! I am Jason Fennell and I partner with educators to incorporate successful online learning solutions that differentiate, individualize and promote the ultimate goal of student achievement. Following my first six years out of college, I chose to teach life skills to high school and community college students in northeast Texas. Students learned problem solving strategies, even though they are known as Algebra 1, Geometry and Development Math. HOW CAN I HELP YOU? My patient and persistent algebraic skills come in handy when you are looking to improve student performance. Having led classrooms, I am a great partner for transitioning and staging effective virtual learning solutions across your district. As I admit, my wife is right. If I were digging ditches, I would be the best ditch digger! You will find me ambitious and constantly seeking ways to improve the partnerships, processes and procedures by which educators leverage our online/web-based solutions via Edmentum.
