Never has this catch phrase been more true than this year! Of course, I'm referring to the college basketball scene. Even if you don’t follow college basketball, EVERYONE in Oklahoma should be proud that after 14 years, OU has made it back to the Final Four (unfortunately, my brackets were shot the first day with Michigan’s loss). But from an educational perspective, the analogy is clear: no matter how much we plan & strategize, we sometimes forget to add the human component, and then all our strategies go awry. This goes for testing schedules (one monitor doesn’t show and life is chaotic), internet challenges, budget cuts, and a host of other challenges. I am always glad to get through March Madness then crush April and see the calendar turn to May, which is the light at the end of the tunnel.
I refuse to be negative! It is so easy to fall into the rut of “Woe is me” syndrome.
