“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” – Albert Einstein
Take a moment and think back on the best teachers in your lifetime.
It may not be a classroom teacher . . . it may be a mentor, a coach, or an instructor.
The best teachers make learning simple. The best mentors make understanding easy.
The difficult part – the part that takes discipline – is learning something well enough to be able to do it . . . and to explain it . . . simply.
Our work is complex and our work is to prepare today’s young people to be tomorrow’s leaders. We must devote ourselves to understanding our purpose well enough to keep our work simple.
