We will be sending monthly newsletters to share about resources and professional development opportunities this year, but today Economics Arkansas just wants to say THANK YOU! Thank you for attending our professional development offerings this summer and for stopping by to visit with us at conference exhibit booths.
I've recently been reading about the three letter word W-H-Y. Simon Sinek has a lot to say about the subject. He suggests that many can explain what they do and how they do it, but not all can explain why. The why is the purpose, cause or belief that drives every one of us.
John Maxwell shares an illustration of three men who were bricklayers. When the first was asked what he did, he simply responded that he was stacking bricks. The second responded that he was building a wall. The third responded that he was building a cathedral. He knew his why.
You all are like the third man. You are building a foundation for our future decision makers, our future leaders and our future citizens. You will certainly provide many defining moments for your students this year and inspire them in countless ways.
Please call on us this year if we can assist you in any way.
