Welcome to another edition of Monday Meditations. This week we will focus on a weekly challenge, and this challenge stems from a quote by Knute Rockne

“Build up your weaknesses until they become your strong points.”
– Knute Rockne

Weekly Challenge
1. List three things that you perceive as your weaknesses
2. List how those perceived weaknesses could become strengths

I know that my weaknesses hold me back from so many things in my life, but listing them and seeing them on paper plus visualizing how they can become our strengths can be a tremendous breakthrough and habit to build.

You have roughly 10,000 minutes to accomplish the challenge this week. That puts things in perspective, doesn’t it?
To end is a quote from the greatest basketball player of ALL TIME: Michael Jordan

“My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength.”
⏤Michael Jordan

In this episode, we talk with The Tech Rabbi: Michael Cohen. Michael is a designer and technologist turned educator. He is an Apple Distinguished Educator and Google Certified Trainer who advocates, speaks, writes, and facilitates workshops on creativity and innovation. He works with schools on a local and national level to help them develop a creative mindset to influence and empower individuals in becoming confident and passionate problem solvers. You can hear Michael’s story of creativity and innovation through social media, and conferences such as Apple Education Events, EdTechTeacher SummitsiPadpaloozaISTE, and SXSWEdu. He holds a Master of Science Education (Educational Technology) from California State University-Fullerton and a Bachelors of Fine Art (Printmaking and Design) from California State University-Long Beach.  The Tech Rabbi is not just a brand, but a real thing. He is, in fact, a real Rabbi.

We all have goals in one form or another, and some come to fruition and others die quickly. I’m talking about the big lofty goals because many times we want them to happen tomorrow, but what about the lightweight goals underneath the heavier ones. Are those most important?
