  • Grace during transitions - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    get wrapped up in these endpoints We want to get deeper into poses do well on our presentations ace our interviews move on to the next project or get funding four our company And we tend to focus so much on the endpoints that we forget the importance of the process Of what we can learn from our experiences What we can take with us And how gracefully we can move between the endpoints Sure periods of transition always carry with them a fear of the unknown But they also provide opportunity To do something you ve never done before To find comfort trying something you ve never tried before To learn To find balance and composure To fail gracefully and refocus your compass and radar to get closer to the right path Every big innovation that s ever existed at some point hadn t been done before Almost every best seller came after 5 books that never made it big And almost every great yoga instructor spent time playing with awkward transitions But the people who found success failed often focused more on the process than the outcome and learned to have grace when transitioning So it would seem to me grace during difficult and awkward transitions is one very important step to success Just a thought Monday July 21st 2014 Leadership Yoga TAGS yoga No comments yet Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign me up for the newsletter Join the conversation AskJeremy Jeremy C Wilson is a JD MBA alumni using his site to share information on education the social enterprise revolution entrepreneurship and doing things differently Feel free to send along questions or comments as you read EducationMatters Share your education story Thank you Chicago for the nomination Apply

  • Revive the Dream: April Session with Teach for America and Josh Anderson - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    students especially those on the cusp Students who don t have enough resources at home Students who might be behind a grade or two And students who need someone to ignite the fire within them That said the incentives to enter the education space especially as a teacher aren t always great Not only is the pay lower than a majority of other fields but the prestige is also lower Furthermore the work can be hard and grueling and at times it feels like you can t have an impact if you re in a big school sytem On the other hand we can look to countries like Finland that have figured out the dilemma Countries who attract and retain the most promising people to enter into teaching programs Countries that not only pay them well but also provide them with a platform to make change One program that does that in the US is Teach for America They recruit the best and the brightest undergrads to teach in underserved schools but the program s main criticism is that the teachers rarely stay in the field and in the profession We addressed that and much more in our discussion with Josh Thanks to people like Josh who are working on these issues not just in Chicago but beyond Chicago as well And Josh TFA thanks again for supporting the RTD program Thursday May 1st 2014 Careers Education Revive the Dream No comments yet Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign me up for the newsletter Join the conversation AskJeremy Jeremy C Wilson is a JD MBA alumni using his site to share information on education the social enterprise revolution entrepreneurship and doing things differently Feel free to send along questions or comments as

  • Revive the Dream: Session 6 with OneGoal and Sarah Berghorst - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    low income students is always a good one The discussion tends to go something like this On the positive side going to college is an extremely important option for low income students Historically going to college has been the best way to change the trajectory of the lives of first generation students It gives students access to things they ve never seen before It prepares students to succeed professionally and live a more fulfilling life And it provides them with a more legitimate chance to compete in our ever changing but ever more unequal economy On the other hand many people think that this is easier said than done That low income students facing larger hurdles when trying to get to college That money may be better spent in early education if you want to maximize the statistical impact And that the value of college is changing that a college degree is no longer a clear predictor of success These are all tough questions but also questions that Sarah fielded and the fellows discussed Thanks to people like Sarah and my friend Jeff Nelson founder of OneGoal who are working on these issues not just in Chicago but beyond Chicago as well And thanks again for supporting the RTD program As a side note please consider attending OneGoal s Gala on May 6 2014 I plan to be there Tuesday March 18th 2014 Diversity Education No comments yet Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign me up for the newsletter Join the conversation AskJeremy Jeremy C Wilson is a JD MBA alumni using his site to share information on education the social enterprise revolution entrepreneurship and doing things differently Feel free to send along questions or comments as you read EducationMatters Share your

  • Yoga, Gratitude and the Lottery - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    you are reading this blog post online right now it s likely that you had a pretty good ticket Further if you practice yoga at a studio here in the US the same thing is probably true But if you think about the entire world the probability of you drawing a good ticket would seem improbable The chance of you being born in a city US with an average IQ normal income good health good parents is 1 in a billion Let alone having internet attending college and belonging to a yoga studio When you look at it this way practicing gratitude becomes way more obvious And while it isn t something I m always good at it has proven me to be one of the most extraordinary ways of living a better life Helping me to not just be content but also to be more generous to everyone around me So I am going to dedicate the next part of the 100 days to being grateful And I hope a few others will join me Let us spread gratitude for the generous ticket we ve been offered Let us be grateful for the time and space to practice yoga And let our light shine so others can do the same Namaste Sunday March 9th 2014 Business School No comments yet Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign me up for the newsletter Join the conversation AskJeremy Jeremy C Wilson is a JD MBA alumni using his site to share information on education the social enterprise revolution entrepreneurship and doing things differently Feel free to send along questions or comments as you read EducationMatters Share your education story Thank you Chicago for the nomination Apply to Join MLT Apply to Join NLC Learn

  • Practice everyday. Shun the non-believers - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    Yogi 1oo participant At first thought I almost became a little defensive forgetting that patience has been one important lesson I ve continued to learn my practice But since starting it s become more obvious than ever that a regular practice is critical Every time I get on my mat the results of how I treated my body the previous day are right there for me to witness I get immediate feedback on how hard I practiced last week how much food I ate the night before and how present I am at the onset of class The more I practice these things the easier the asanas are the stronger I get the more I start to see change right in front of me and the less surprised I am when I flow into poses that once seemed impossible Just yesterday I floated into two new awesome handstand poses and forearm stands have never been easier In short the repetition and commitment to the practice makes you feel better become stronger and shine brighter Shun the non believers Saturday February 22nd 2014 Leadership Yoga No comments yet Leave a comment Name required Mail will not be published required Website Message Sign me up for the newsletter Join the conversation AskJeremy Jeremy C Wilson is a JD MBA alumni using his site to share information on education the social enterprise revolution entrepreneurship and doing things differently Feel free to send along questions or comments as you read EducationMatters Share your education story Thank you Chicago for the nomination Apply to Join MLT Apply to Join NLC Learn about the JD MBA program Please Vote Recent Posts Please vote A month in at Winston Strawn 365 Days of Yoga What I learned And why I kept going Exactly one year ago Seth

  • Revive the Dream: Session 5 with Melinda Spooner and Melissa Zaikos - JEREMYCWILSON.COM | JEREMYCWILSON.COM
    level or rigor so if a student moves to a new city county or state the level of education elsewhere will be simillar On the other hand many people think that this is easier said than done That the execution is not only difficult but perhaps impossible Not only will the standard be a tough adjustment for students but also for the teachers initially It is not the way many teachers are used to teaching and now they are being asked to change their style and content and get evaluated on it Likewise it s also not the level of learning students have been asked to do for the past three decades Moreover there is not a good plan in place for students with special needs and the standards don t do much to account for different starting points of students On the other hand some people remained optimistic understanding these challenges are similar to those that come with running any school and making change in the education space They realize that there is a lot of work to be done and increasing standards of learning is one step we need to get there among others We talked about all of these hard topics and more in our session last night with Melinda and Melissa Thanks to programs like Revive the Dream and Education Matters we hope to continue to help spread ideas about the issues equip up and coming leaders to solve these education issues over time Thanks to Melinda and Melissa for coming to speak to our Fellows Below is a photo of Melissa Zaikos speaking to the group about her time at CPS and her role as CEO at Intrinsic Schools Below is a photo Melinda Spooner speaking to the group about her role as Executive Director
