Making Every Day Count

[#quoteoftheday💬] "Don't count the days. Make the days count." - Muhammed Ali. 🥊 A little (big?) #mondaymotivation for all of us, with a special shoutout to all #teachers and #colleagues in #cambridgeschools across the Middle East & North Africa who start their workweeks on #Sunday ☀️


To me, this quote is about doing things whole-heartedly. Instead of counting the days to the next rest point and giving a half effort, let’s take a leaf out of #mohamedali’s playbook and flip it:


✨💪🏾Let’s remember that the positive things we do today count, so do them well, even if it's hard

✨💪🏾Let’s make our #lessons and #teaching count.

✨💪🏾Let’s make each person we interact with feel like what they say, do and contribute counts. 💛


🥀 If you already feel defeated and it’s not even Tuesday yet, I like to think of #MohamedAli and #keepfaith. He didn’t even let Parkinson’s disease temper his positive spirit. ☀️


Question for you:


💭What is one thing you could do differently in your #teachingpractice or #work this week to make it count?




P.S. Here’s a strange thing: even though the UAE shifted the workweek to start on #Monday several months ago, I am still not fully adjusted to working on a Friday and not a Sunday! 👀🙇🏻‍♀️
