Learning Requires Effort. Want The Work

Wisdom Walks.jpgDan Britton and Jimmy Page wrote, “WisdomWalks  Sports: 40 Game-Changing Principles for Athletes, Coaches & Teams.” On page 1, they offer these truths:

“Many competitors live with the ‘No Pain – No Pain’ … mind-set and never fulfill their God-given potential. They waste the gift. There is no progress without struggle. There is no growth unless we push beyond our normal limits. Many competitors want the win without the work. But the shortcut never leads to greatness. The easy road never makes you better.”

Although the book  is written for those involved in sports, the message could easily apply to the classroom. Some students want to learn without effort.

Learning requires effort. Want the work.
