The best teacher

september 21st, 2019 Posted by Eesmärgid 0 thoughts on “The best teacher”

I love Arvo Pärt, a composer who possesses all the the qualities that I admire so deeply – humanity, humbleness and wisdom.

Joonas Sildre has created a graphic novel about Arvo Pärt. I have found many good quotes from the book, one of them could be translated as follows:

‘Maybe the greatest teacher a human being has is his/her conscience. A glance at oneself. What you are not like, but what you would like to be like.’

How to develop self-confidence

Some good reminders from the speech:

  • Repetition and practice builds self confidence.
  • I am the captain of my ship, I am the master of my fate’. We are captains of our ships, but often act as passangers. Do you take responsibility for your ship or hope someone else will do it for you?
  • Write a self-confidence letter to yourself. ‘Congratulations on raising three good kids. Congratulations on graduating from university.’
  • No one will believe in you unless you do.

Be prepared to be wrong

Sir Ken Robinson:

‘If you are not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.’

‘We stigmatise mistakes’

‘We’re educating people out of their creative capacity’.

‘Picasso once said that all children are born artists. The problem is to remain an artist as we grow up’

Centennial Light Bulb

The Centennial Light is the world’s longest-lasting light bulb, burning since 1901, and almost never switched off.

I wonder what the light bulb has seen and experienced over more than 110 years, which is how any generations?

Reverse the formula for happiness and success.

We think we have to be successful, then we’ll be happier. But out brains work in the opposite order. If we can raise somebody’s level of positivity in the present, then your brain experiences a happiness advantage, i.e. you brain in positive performs significantly better than it does at negative, neutral or stressed. Your intelligence rises, your creativity rises, your energy levels rise.

Your brain at positive is 31% more productive than at negative, neutral or stressed.

My month in Italy (Vol 5)

My family decided to give our little contribution to Porto Tricase, which had shown us great hospitality and helped us in so many different ways to achieve the goals of our trip.

So, on a few days we just went to the beach in Porto Tricase to clean it up. As we did so, some people joined us or thanked us with an appreciative smile or ‘Grazie!’.

I also participated in the Clean Up Italy initiative, where we collected just cigarette butts to lay an emphasis on their negative effect on environment.

Great, Mentor Sandra Vabarna!

Sandra Vabarna, a member of famous Estonian folk rock band Trad.Attack, is going to deliver free mentoring to one bagpiper and one band over a one-year period, helping them reach their goals. 🏆 It requires a lot of time, energy and work from all stakeholders.

Having both experienced and delivered mentoring, coaching and supervision for more than a decade, I can say with full confidence that all the three disciplines can be a life-changing experience for all stakeholders. Mentoring, coaching and supervision all support the growth of the client, but are equally enriching for the mentor/coach/supervisor and benefit society as a whole. 

I wish Trad.Attack good luck with their master plan – to play in every country in the world. 🎼

Grateful for the appreciation

In May 2019 I was happy to receive Certificate of Appreciation from Harku Society for Child Welfare.

I’m not quite sure what it was for, but I guess for having delivered lectures and practical classes to students aged 9, 14 and 18. Some memories from the experience:

Marika Saard’s contemplation cards were always with me. One of my clients summarised her coaching experience with the help of a card as follows:

Coaching for me was taking the pearls from the shell.

It sound beautiful also in her mother tongue: ‘Il coaching per me è stato raccogliere le perle dalla conchiglia.’

My month in Italy (Vol 3)

In Italy I delivered coaching and supervision in very different environments, but due to favourable weather conditions often also outdoors.

Nature helped to enrich our sessions providing additional tools whenever necessary – architecture, breeze, rocks, flowers, shells, tree brances, sand, clouds etc.
