Are You Living Your Best Possible Life

Forget resilience. Forget the struggle. Forget pleasing others. Everyone deserves a great life without all that.

Once you know what your great life would look like, you can forget the ongoing internal battle about what is right for you and set off in the right direction.

When you find your purpose you gain a new confidence in your decisions. Your decisions feed your confidence. You come to please yourself rather than trying to please others. That is when you create your best possible life.

Your best possible life emerges in a spiral that nourishes itself.

Covid-19 Year 12 Career Development Toolkit

At the UWA careers advisors breakfast on Friday the room was buzzing with talk about how to cope with the Covid-19 virus.

Teachers from wealthy schools were talking about streaming lessons. Teachers from poorer schools were concerned that many of their students don’t have computers and the internet at home.

Local Government Image result for local government wa

I have written to the WA Local Government Association asking them to consider student access to library facilities as part of their planning.

I have also written to the Minister for Local Government alerting him to the fact that many senior students may not have access to the internet at home and asking him to consider what his department can do.

School of Isolated and Distance Education (SIDE)

Our School of Isolated and Distance Education is expert at teaching remotely. I have written to them asking if they have anything to offer that will relieve the stress. I will post any news that they send to me.

Student Edge

Julie Govorko from Canning Vale sent me through information about Student Edge which offers online courses that align with curriculum.

I checked their site and it has an endorsement from Duncraig and Manjimup and both of those subscribe to my newsletter…. so they must be good references!!

All of their courses cost but the prices seem pretty reasonable and they may just be a great tool to help you through the crisis.

I got in touch with them and they suggested that I check out their courses HERE.

Minister for Youth

I wrote to Dave Kelly. Minister for Youth (and some other stuff). His office sent through these links. You could add them to your Covid-19 toolkit to help kids to get through this.

Request for Ideas

I think 90% of year 12s are still hoping for that flash of inspiration which will lead them to their perfect life path for next year.

The chances of that happening are always slim.

I would like to collate any support that you discover and share the ideas so that others can benefit from your knowledge.
