Moonshot Thinking #InnovatorsMindset

On Twitter, I asked for a great video on “Forward Thinking Leadership”, and Christina Carlin (thank you!), shared this great video:

The quote at the end resonated;

When Kennedy said, that we would put a man on the moon, it’s about the fact that he said,”We don’t know how to do this yet, but we are going to do this anyway.” And that sends chills up everybody’s spine, because if that happens, what couldn’t we do?

As I have said before, the biggest barrier to innovation is often our own way of thinking. This is a beautiful addition to resources that supports that.

    One of the quotes that speaks to me in this amazing short video is, “if you want cars to run at 50 miles per gallon, fine you can retool your car a little bit. But if I tell you it has to run on a gallon of gas for 500 miles, you have to start over!” I think that this quote really speaks to the state of education today. We are no longer preparing students to work in the assembly lines of the industrial revolution, yet, we largely teach students in this way. When we look at teaching practices, we typically retool and students achieve slightly better scores. What if we changed the way we did things, forget grading, have students explore and imaging and create. I don’t know what that would feel like, but I would be excited to find out!
